Hanging out, enjoying another beautiful hot summer day.

Where are we today ?
        Monday, Labor Day, and we are not going anywhere, everybody else can travel, we are quite comfortable to stay right here. Gonna be about  80 f but with the humidity the low 90's f, weather we really enjoy, in the shade, light breeze and a good book.  Have had a couple busy days and quite a few more in the near future, so took a day to ourselves and just puttered around. Research stuff, pick up mail, and enjoy our each other company.
         One mail item we picked up today was the KOBO Aura sleep cover I had ordered on E-bay. It is a real leather cover, that puts my KOBO to sleep when I close it. Came with a screen protector and was only $9.90, free shipping too! Best price I could find was $39.00 here for the same one. Purchased it on line Aug 22nd and it was mailed from Hong Kong China (half way around the world). Was received at our mail box Aug 29th!! Now that is really amazing. Mail from Toronto to here takes about as long and thats only 100 miles away.
protects my KOBO, and when I close the cover
 it goes to sleep
still nice to hold
too cool
      Then we enjoyed some Onion and Parsley Turkey burgers with a salad for a very tasty supper.
We really enjoy these Turkey burgers
      What a great day of relaxing something that we are quite good at when we get the chance.
      Thanks for taking a peek and hope you had a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend.

  1. I am amazed at how fast some things can arrive and others take forever. I ordered a battery charger for my camera when we were in Parker, and it arrived in about 12 hours.

  3. Nice to be able to lay low on the holidays for sure! Just a mention...I made your pork rib recipe on our weberQ this week and those ribs were the best I have ever made. Makes my mouth water just to think of them.

  4. How'd we live before Amazon and the Internet? Nice cover you got, a great idea to protect your e-reader.

  5. I use a similar cover for our iPad Mini.

    I am with you about avoiding travel on long weekends. We make our own long weekends when others cannot do so.
