A beautiful warm, sunny, busy, fall day, getting so ready to go.....

Where are we today?

       What a wonderful day. A good sleep last night, so peaceful here, and warm sunny weather today. How can we not love that?
         Got a nice walkabout town this morning.
The leaves are starting to change
      Then  just before 9 am I headed to New Hamburg to get things wrapped up. Love it here everything we need is in a small town and so close. First stop by the lab for some blood work, hearing aid supplies for the winter, dollar store for a large roast pan to cook our turkey, Christmas and birthday gift cards, health food store for my supplements, bank for cash, Oak Grove Cheese to order some vacuumed packed extra old cheddar (to get us through the winter), forms from the Pharmacy to order our 6 months of meds, and even pick up a few groceries as well. Home by 11:30 for a nice light lunch wth Suzie.
       That taken care of I hopped on the mower a mowed a few acres of lawn here, while Suzie headed intoWaterloo for her Chiropractic tune-up.
The pool is closed for the winter now
so no more swimming this year
       Couple hours later I got most of it done and she was heading home, good timing! I will finish off tomorrow. No rush and the weather will be perfect again.
just trimming around our coach
         She got home in time for some relaxing reading time outside and a nice quiet Happy Hour.
Shorts and t shirt weather today
          Then time to fire up our Weber Q. Grill a couple chicken legs to go with another tasty healthy salad.
chicken on our Weber Q
crispy on the outside

moist and tender inside 
sure did the trick again
love our chicken!
         By the time we were done about 7 pm, I am tired, bones and joints achy. It is the cool damp weather here that we need to get away from for the winter and I will feel wonderful again. Miss the hot summer weather.
         Tomorrow's weather about the same and I will sure enjoy that too. Less than 2 weeks we cross the border and begin our southern journey, South west is the destination somewhere. The route to be determined as weather dictates and the mood strikes us on a daily basis. We have lots of options.
       Thanks for stopping on by.
Where we have been this summer?

  1. Those last three weeks went by so quickly. Looks like many of us are checking our list and crossing things off as we go. I haven't been able to find Xmas cards. I like to get a bunch for Colin's Mom, 102 years young and have someone mail them to her every few days but no cards so far this year.

    It was a cool 1C here this morning.

    1. No doubt we will pass through that way at some point, not sure if it is this fall or in the spring, We do plan on spending some time in Quartzsite area though. Hope to meet up with you again this winter.
      Plans are written in chalk as we travel like usual.

  3. Sounds like you're getting to experience the nice fall season - my favorite of the year. It's beginning to feel more like fall here but still in the mid 80's

  4. I'm with you George. I miss the summer heat. These days this week are beautiful and you will find me outside in the sun with my book as much as possible soaking the heat into my bones. Can't wait for the southwest daytime temps.

  9. We've seen a lot of beautiful red, orange and green trees but I can't say they are beautiful with all the rain we've had too. Wish we could get out of here !
