Walking, talking, reading, mowing and swimming, gotta love this summer weather.

Where are we today ?
        Yep we had a couple busy days behind us and are really enjoying our down time right now.
        Today is a day almost all to ourselves. Morning coffees, walkabouts, chatting, computing hey this is really nice! So we make a few plans, read for a while, run to the store in New Hamburg for a few items, bite for lunch and think I will mow some more lawn, perfect day for it.
        Fired up the mower and ran good for about 90 minutes, oopps, it stopped , battery dead. Gave it a boost and parked in the shed on the charger for a while.
I am at the back of the lot and Suzie is running the dogs,
she likes her doggie fix ya know.
       Perfect timing as it was pretty hot out there 32c (88f with the humidity) and we felt like a swim anyway. Nice and refreshing, all cooled off again we can read a bit more. Fire up the Weber Q and grill a nice small pork loin roast and some tiny taters. 45 minutes on the grill after preheating turned the roast at about 25 minutes just to add grill marks to the fat cap and crisp it a bit more. The roast is done perfectly at 145f (internal temp) still moist a juicy, so tender.
the pool was perfect, so quiet here and 84f, love it 
all ready to go, garlic bun too
sure did the trick and lotsa leftovers
        Supper done and while Suzie did the dishes I finished the rest of the lawn mowing, only 20 minutes, good for another week. Then  guess what? We can enjoy a bit more reading, until the daylight dims and time to head inside, finish up this blog posting.
         Thanks again for visiting our quiet world today. Tomorrow will be another very busy one again. Places to go, people to see and fun that is calling us to make more memories.

  1. So does your lawn mower have a seat?

    1. Yes it sure does, with a 5 foot wide deck, no other way I can cut 5 acres of lawn in a little over 3 hours. Guess you have not seen the pictures of it.

  5. Keep up the good work. Especially the reading part - that's the best in my book.

  6. Sounds like a fine way to spend the day. I need to mow my grass this evening when it gets a little cooler.

    1. I don't like to do that stuff after supper, and I don't mind the heat especially with the pool here. That's why I like to split in into 2 - 2 hour days.
