Major rain last night and the grass is growing here like crazy !

Where are we today ?
clic on a pic to enlarge it.
         We had some major rain last night which was wonderful. Nothing like rain on the roof when we are sleeping, so relaxing. According to a couple of neighbours I chatted with this morning on my early walkabout at 7 am, both their rain gauges showed we had 3 inches of rain. We can almost see the grass growing, wow !
interesting misty sunrise today
       I whipped into New Hamburg and picked up a few things and home by 10 am gonna cut some more grass again today. 
love the country roads around here
        Only mowed the lawn on Tuesday and Wednesday but with all this rain can almost see it growing, plus we leave here in the morning for a few weeks like to keep things up for John when we can.
       Got the 5 acres done in short order just under 3 hours, mower going full tilt. Looks pretty good right now.

the back of the lot.

can't see our coach under the huge
tree in the middle
here we are in the shade
 of the willow trees
       Now time for a dip in the pool , it is right here and so refreshing. Probably one of our last swims for the summer.
this is what we call
camp awesome
      John had this shirt made couple pics below. This is Plattsville!
yup this is Plattsville!
        After chatting with a couple neighbors over the fence for a bit, time to whip up supper. Tonight a salmon fillet on our weber Q on the grill mat.. Old Bay spice and some lemon slices sure does do a nice job of it.
Before the grill
added a salad, fresh cantaloupe, blueberries,
 and strawberries, no processed food here
        What a great hot summer day as it is winding down, Even got some nice reading time in here as well. Now to relax on  a nice warm evening until it gets dark usually around 9pm then inside we go. We love being outside in the fresh country air.
         Glad that y'all stopped by fora peak  and hope you had a wonderful summer day as well.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this summer


  1. We love salmon with lots of lemon also.

  2. Salmon is just about my favorite food too ... except I never buy farmed salmon, only wild. Rain is good. It keeps everything green. Green is good for summer. The desert works for winter.

    1. We do love our fish most any kind, and this is wild Pacific salmon. The rain was needed and sure is making things grow like crazy. Winter desert works for us too.

  3. We have a fish farm right out here on the water. They produce SALMON! Can't buy wild pacific here, just farm-raised north-atlantic. Our rain showers haven't been many this summer and they were rather short. Too dry everywhere.

    1. Not sure where this salmon came from but it sure was tasty. It has been very dry here until recently then wow..
