          Just another hot summer day in the making and this is the weather I love. I can always cool down but can never get warm enough when its too cold. First walkabout at 7 am around town. lots of people out as well want to get out before today's record break temperatures hit their peak. Supposed to be about 34c (93f) with a heat index about 40 c (104f).
        Such  a quiet walk only the noise of this ultralight below cruising over the fields and the village. I am sure he must had had some wonderful views from up there.

         But this really does not bother me too much, I was used to the heat years ago. In my restaurant kitchen for 10 years.
      A quick stop for groceries and then hop on the mower about 10:30 get an hour of lawn mowing done then stop for a light lunch, cool me and the mower down, rehydrate and head our for another hour.

      Then hop on the mower for another hour, not too bad here even though its hot I have a nice breeze, mostly cutting the weeds but needs done.
this is a Ferris mower 61 inch cut and
 does a great job fast too.
got 2/3rds of the 5 acres done more another day
   Time for a dip in the pool cool down and get some reading time in, under the willow tree with a nice cool breeze. With Suzie and the dogs.

      I was getting supper ready, a couple bone in skinless chicken breasts done on our Weber Q with the grill mat and BBQ sauce. When almost done Suzie took the dogs for a run and they can go back in the yard while we enjoy our meal.
there they go off, off and away 
Tasty, healthy meal, cantaloupe
 to add to the salad,
more to add for a future chicken soup
      Just another fun day in the sun and shade, always something to keep us busy and the pool here to cool us down.
      About 8:30 tonight the dogs we taken home so we will probably not see them for a while, it was fun while it lasted, and they both got a good brushing along with a major doggie fix for Suzie.
      Thanks for stopping by, hope you had a wonderful day as well.

  5. George, is the grill mat you have the one you see "As Seen On TV"?. I saw one at Walgreen's but wasn't for sure if it was the same as yours.Thank you, Jana

    1. Ours is a "Miracle Grill Mat" but I am sure most are similar.

    1. We sure do, and love it here as well. No hookups though other than a 200 foot 15 amp electric cord that does not doo much more than keep our batteries charged.
