A very relaxing Sunday!

Where are we today ?
      Heck we are having more wonderful weather. After all our coffees and computing headed out for a walkabout the village about 8 am. So nice and quiet, sun coming up and gonna be a hot day. 
      Walked a few blocks past all three of the houses I have owned here it town over the years, since I first moved here in 1982.
nice road into town
       Below is the first house I bought here in town 1982, only the front part (has since been added on to) original house was 750 square ft on a double lot $27,000.00.
       Next house right across the street, was very nicely landscaped when we had it, but very overgrown now. Bought it in 1986 for a good price.
      Then when I met Suzie bought this house and worked on it for 15 years, ( it was an insulbrick shack when we bought it) to make it look this good, lots of work but we made our money out of it and then some. We did siding, roof, new furnace, hot water tank, new windows, doors, flooring, new kitchen, new bathroom, wiring, driveway, wrap around porch,  etc...
this was our last house in town
        There was a few people outside that I knew and stopped to chat with them for a bit too, nice to see them again.
         Now we are looking forward to a very nice peaceful day, nowhere to go, just enjoy the great weather we are having here, just the two of us, perfect!
yep its a beautiful hot sunny day
      It was so nice out thought I would finish mowing the the last acre or so of the lawn here. So hopped on the mower and was done by noon. Just in time for a light lunch and some quality reading time in the shade. Chat with John for a bit, service the mower and Suzie got her doggie fix with Molly and Buddy.

Molly and Buddy hanging out with us
         Before we know it time to fire up our Weber Q to grill this huge (one inch thick smoked pork chop) to share, and some mushrooms, onions, sweet peppers and grape tomatoes.
        Add that to a tasty spinach salad with lotsa stuff, and bean salad we had a wonderful filling, tasty supper.
did the trick tonight
      Sure is nice to have a peaceful day here hanging out, just the two of us.
      Darn sure do love this lifestyle!
      After supper was cooked about 6 pm we had a huge downpour, heavy rain lasting about 20 minutes. The temps dropped from 80f to 65f real quick, but then a very nice evening. until 8 o'clock and rain some more.
      Thanks for stopping in and checking us out. Hope you had a nice peaceful Sunday too.

  3. Always interesting to visit the old homesteads and for me at least, realize I am so glad not to have them anymore.

  5. It is fun to go back and relive the memories. Wouldn't you love to walk in those houses now and see how they've changed. What no Sunday markets?

    1. I have actually been in those houses since I sold them. The last house is owned by Suzie's cousin.
      There is some Sunday markets but we decided to take a day off.

  6. That thick chop has made my stomach growl - should have waited until after breakfast to eat this.
