We do manage to keep pretty busy here.

Where are we today ?
        Well guess we were really tired yesterday from the late night before. I slept until almost 7 a.m. . Now thats unheard of for me. Don't remember when the last time that has happened.
        Got the coffee and computing fix done real quick. Stop by the garage this morning and back home for George to pump out our waste water tanks. He was supposed to be here yesterday , but his truck broke down. No problem we are good to go now for another week to 10 days. Can't beat the service, he is town once a week and for $20.00 he comes to us. Or we can drive 30 miles each way for a free dump station. Cheaper to stay here and have him pump us out.
this is a file photo from before,
George hooking us up
        That was done then drove Suzie to her Mom and Dad's she is heading off with them for more Doctors appointments with them. No problem I have a few errands in New Hamburg and back home to install a new antenna for our Sirius Radio. The old antenna bit the dust. Cheap stuff nowadays. So up on the roof and to get that done.
a nice shot from the roof looking east
         That satellite antenna is magnetic. Our roof is aluminum, front part fiberglass. The only steel here is the automatic satellite dish on our roof. Now that is for Bell and Dish satellite tv. We don't need it anymore as we have a Shaw/direct satellite dish for tv.I Just use the tripod and have mastered the setup. And we like the tripod much better, quicker and easier than on the roof especially when we usually are parked under trees in the summer.

our solar panel works great
       I got all that stuff done and managed to actually read for a few minutes, when Suzie called me to pick her up in New Hamburg, doctors appointments done.
        Back home and I can fire up our Weber Q, grill a huge chicken breast, couple tiny taters, 2 cobs of corn and some fresh asparagus. And even enjoy our books a bit more.
Our Weber Q does a perfect job.Low and slow
 about 70 minutes after preheating the grill.
         Corn soaked in water about 30 minutes our longer, tiny taters about 35 minutes on the grill corn 20 minutes on the grill, asparagus about 10-12 minutes
oh so tasty, we do love chicken and fresh veggies
      That was a fun productive day we had, even though the weather was a bit cool and damp, (maybe got to 75f for a bit) only a few drizzles here and there.
       We are fulltime rver's and really don't need to be on the go everyday. Now starting 9 years on the road and love every minute of it whatever that entitles. 
        All in all worked out quite well, thanks for stopping by again.

  1. Gee I wish I could have a busy day like that.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Trying to catch up! busy busy busy! jeeeeez your food always looks so good!

  3. You slept until 7:00?? That is late for you. It would be late for me too. Sounds you had another very busy day doing what you enjoy doing and doing some stuff you just had to get taken care of.

    1. That was about 2 hours later than usual, musta been whipped.
      It was a very nice day just puttering around.

  4. Are you allowed to dump the gray water or do you have both pumped out? I don't think we could go 10 days on the gray.

    1. We are good at conserving water, we get both pumped out.

  5. $20 ??? - There wouldn't be any choice in my book. That is a great deal. I can't believe you, of all people, slept until 7:00. You were beyond exhausted.

  6. Good deal for $20, George.

    I'll have to try that corn on the cob on our Weber, thanks for the tips.

    1. For the corn soak it in cold water 20 minutes or longer, then or the grill about 10-15 minutes on low, just nee to heat it up and so very tasty.

  7. Now that is what I call service. And t a very resonable price.

    1. Works for us, we have access to water and a tiny bit of electric (15 amp) so works great.

  8. Interesting way to cook the corn, George, thanks! Never heard of soaking it like that before. Another one to add to my list. Glad your days are filled with all the things you like to do.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
