Cold nights warm days and a final dip in the pool today.

Where are we today ?

        Hey was cold this morning !  Our thermometer at 5:45 am said 0C heck thats freezing out there but did not see any frost so maybe it is not accurate, time for a new one maybe? Nice walkabout town, chat with a few people then a nice light lunch.
      Suzie went to visit her brother and SIL get our mail (not much). And while she was gone I finished mowing the lawn here just over an hour today.
       Now when I was done I felt like a swim in the pool. Temperature outside was 76 f and the pool 78 f . Hey I can do that! And actually the water was wonderful, I am sure my last swim this year in this pool. We leaving in the morning for 3 weeks, pool may be closed by the time we get back.
it was very refreshing, but not too cold 
now to enjoy some quality reading time
 before preheating our Weber Q
        Suzie home by 3 pm just as I fired up our Weber Q. Chicken on by 3:30 for 90 minutes (it was just over 4 lbs) And we chatted and had a nice "happy hour" together.
our chicken just starting on the grill
on low lid closed, n peaking and 90 minutes DONE!
this Weber Q 100 does wonders 
had to make up a small batch
of this sauce, love it !
Chicken done to perfection and some
acorn squash with honey
add to our salad was wonderful
       Nothing more healthy than a fresh made salad (no carbs) with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, gilled chicken, fresh grapes  and an acorn squash with honey. Nothing processed here except a tiny bit of of dipping sauce.
and leftovers for lunches and soup
        What a wonderful day we had and even got a nice dip in the pool too!
        Hope you had a great day too!
        Thanks again for stopping by

  1. Sounds like your season is winding down nicely. Looking forward to getting to our Arizona park and getting to use the hot tub and pool every night. I only missed one night all winter last year. Even after the New Year's dance ended at midnight+ I went to the pool.

    1. We are looking forward to the southwest again, we don't get a lot of pools camping in the desert though but still love it.

  2. We can go swimming in the ocean....if we are suicidal. Temps are around 60F!!! But still 55F in the morning outside then warming up. Wonderful Septmeber days out here.

    1. No ocean swimming for me in the north Atlantic. Yes the wonderful September days are here now lovely warm sunny days and cool nights.

  3. Good for you, going for one last dip. There is always the indoor pool at Rock Glen too. Yesterday was a perfect day, we even had a campfire for a couple of hours last night.

    1. It was a perfect day, I will make use of the Pool at Rock Glen (when it's quiet) and the fitness centre that I miss.

  4. I have to believe that 78* water was refreshing to say the least.

    1. It is that temperature most of the summer really not to bad when it's really hot.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
