Much cooler today but productive, in the sun.

Where are we today ?

        Was kinda chilly in our house this morning (60f) at 5 am. Mind you all the windows open last night for the fresh  air. When I got up I fired up our Mr. Heater and quickly was very comfortable inside. Got my coffees and computing done by 7 am, sun shining nicely and did a nice long walkabout town, So peaceful here in this small town.
lotsa bunnies hanging out
the corn is growing so fast can almost see it  moving
           At the road behind our coach the winter sign is still there for the snowmobile trail, may as well keep it there until this winter, will be needed again.
        Ran a few errands then I got on the roof of our coach (by 10 am) to check the few small bits of caulking that I can touch up, The roof is in excellent shape (it is metal) and very few joints. Today was a good day to do it, hot , sunny and no rain in the forecast=perfect. A bit of Dicor self leveling rv caulking does the trick.
Just a few minor spots to touch up
this is the best stuff to use
          While I did this, Suzie did her vacuuming and dusting, our house looks brand new again! She loves cleaning our small house.
         After a bite for lunch I hopped on the mower for 2 hours and got most of the yard done, will finish off tomorrow.  This done, it was still sunny and pretty warm needed a swim to cool down and get refreshed. Feel brand new now ! It only got up to 80f today. feels almost too cold. Think the pool was warmer than the air !
         Now time to enjoy our e-readers and relax in the shade for a while enjoying the view of the fresh mowed lawn and sounds of the birds.
so nice to relax with a good book
and Suzie in the shade
          Then time for me to whip up supper, a couple of Hayter's Turkey Burgers with Cranberry and spinach on our Weber Q and our tasty salad.
sure was tasty, love their burgers
more fresh strawberries too.
       After supper enjoying this wonderful summer weather, we can enjoy the outside fresh air, reading walking, just being outside, what's not to love about that? It is a tough life but heck we do seem to manage.
       Thanks for stopping in for a peek and hope you had a wonderful day as well. Lots more summer to come yet .

  1. Hey George, I have often seen that you do chicken on the Weber. Tried that yesterday and failed. After a long time they were still raw inside, but coal black on the outside. They then ended up in the oven, where it took another 30 minutes to get them done. They were fresh - not frozen. How can that be?

    1. If you have a Weber Q 100 like I do, preheat it on high 15 minutes with the lid closed. Oil the bird and spice it. Turn the Weber to LOW, place the chicken on the grill, and DO NOT OPEN THE LID for at least an hour, the lid closed makes it like an oven. Do not turn the chicken, Instant read thermometer will read 170 f when done, take off the and tent with foil for 10 minutes will reach 180 f. It will be slightly charred on the bottom, The rest of the bird should have a golden crispy skin.
      How large is your chicken? Might take longer if it's windy or cold outside. I have a few friends that do it the same way on the Weber Q no problem.
      Sounds Strange my Weber had never failed me in 6 years. You have a Q 100?

  3. We have corn fields near us but houses are about to be built on the fields. Very sad.

    1. It is sad, we are surrounded by farmland, would hate to see it be developed.

  4. We use your Weber chicken recipe all the time with wonderful success. I'll be interested to see what went wrong with Peter & Beatrix. Here in Compton, we're surrounded by farmland and wake to the smell of manure in the morning.

    1. Yeah think something not right with his Weber.
      The smell of manure is not so bad at all when you get used to it and live in farm country.

  6. Looks like you enjoyed another nice summer day. Thank goodness we have many more of them to come in 2016 before it's time to head south again.

  7. I agree the Dicor Caulk is the best. I keep a couple of tubes on hand at all times, you never know when a leak can pop up.

    1. I have had no roof leaks at all, just a couple of fresh water ones that I have managed to find eventually and repair.

  8. I love visiting the country this time of year. Seeing the corn, beans and tomatoes growing gives me a warm fuzzy felling.

    1. We have lived in the country most of our lives, and still get those feelings whenever we are here.
