Sunday is a day of rest, right? That's what we did.

Where are we today ?

         Rain over night  and drizly off and on most of the day. Overcast but not too cold got up to 48f (9c), that's a good thing. A few walkabouts town between the drizzle was nice and refreshing and oh so quiet. Love quiet. Some reading and computing for a bit then a nice light lunch. Love our Mr. Heater keeps us toasty warm and uses minimal propane.
         Being it was a Sunday afternoon, we found a wonderful adventure, comedy, fantasy movie on TV. "Night at The Museum" where the nightwatchman at the museum of natural history discovers that the exhibits come alive after the building closes. Got quite a few laughs for the next 2 1/2 hours. What a great way to spend a dreary Sunday afternoon.
           Then another walkabout down river road for a while, no rain or wind but so peaceful again, Listening to the birds in the trees, geese flying over and the babble of the river over some small rapids.
geese making a heck of a noise
a marsh/ swamp on the other side of the road
back into town down river road
           Soon time for supper, decided to cook inside again, just 'cause it was not a great day to grill (and have used it almost everyday year round and wanted to store our Weber Q while it was dry. A change is as good as a rest.  Today a simple dish we have not had for quite a while Shake and Bake Pork Chops. And of course our daily salad.  With the shake and bake I sprayed the meat with olive oil instead of with water. Added some parmesan cheese to it and a few spices and turned out wonderful so tasty and moist boneless chops.
sure was tasty
          Was a great meal, relax, short walkabout, post our blog and check out Madam Secretary (Suzie's favorite show) before calling it a night.
         Tomorrow we head out to Rock Glen resort for a few weeks, see what trouble we can get into there, then? Never sure what our next move will be, just the way we love it !
       Glad you stopped by and hope your day was as wonderful and relaxing as ours.

    1. Sure is greening up pretty nicely with this rain can almost see the grass growing and leaves popping out.
      The Shake and Bake was a nice treat for a change, very tasty.

    I LOVED Night at the Museum. Have taken my son, and now his kids to that museum so many times! Fun to see it come alive that way. Glad you guys are doing well. Cheers! Clancy
