Not much happening today, just doing what we do best, and got a thorough eye exam.

Where are we today ?

    The rain stopped overnight and was about 42f (5c) But today today mostly cloudy and a slight drizzle off and on.
    At 8 am took the car to Pettigrew's Garage to get Dale to check out the front end making some noise, and all looks pretty good except will need one new ball joint. He will get it in next week and check the brakes at that time that might be due as well. We have only done the brakes once at 430,000 kms (267,000 miles), this 2002 Saturn has been treating us very good so far.
     Then picked up a few groceries and puttered around setting up our new Bell Turbo hub for internet. Quick and easy set up to secure it, no issues and find it is much faster than our Roger's wireless one and will be a bonus when going to other places where the Rogers does not work that well if at all.
      While I did this Suzie got her new I phone all set up, of course she loves it and both of these devices were free with the 2 year contract that works perfect for us. Save money all around and get better service too.
this the hub and works wonderful
      Just a light lunch, more bean soup was perfect on a cool damp day.
      Even got some quality reading time in (not outside though) and off to New Hamburg at 2;30 PM to have my eyes tested, its been quite a while. That took an hour for the complete test and no cost to us, being a senior now has it's privileges. Eyes are good and slight prescription change on my glasses will research that to see if we get new lenses or wait till next winter. Maybe sooner than later.
       Back home by 4:30 and time to whip up supper, still to cool to sit out side, so tonight a tasty Fettuccini Alfredo with some  fresh cooked shrimp and a salad. Sure did the trick again.
one of Suzi'e Favourites.
       The day just slipped on by, no major rain was good, but some sunshine and a bit warmer would be better. We know that's coming shortly so just patiently waiting.
      No noticeable sunset tonight still over cast. So this blog is posted and we can enjoy some more reading for a bit and maybe even a show on the tube before calling it a night.
       Thanks for stopping by and hope y'all had a wonderful day as well.


Where have we been this summer ?

  1. Crikey ...... a new iPhone and that hub thing. Mum's never seen one like that before. She's off to google it. We have a wireless modem because we travel a lot and it's hopeless. Sorry we haven't been round much. Mum's been a bit crook. We try and keep up with what you are doing. Just not commenting as much as we used to. Glad you got a good report on the eyes!!

    1. Thanks for dropping by Charlie always nice to hear from you. You missed the roast beef yesterday. was yummy.
      This hub seems to work pretty good, larger than the Rogers but should have more coverage for us in the areas we travel to.

    1. Well Dale does all the work on our coach and the car and has for years, we pay him well. Over half those miles are towed behind the coach on the highway, we replace car tires more often.

  5. Catching up on my blog reading...you two have been busy. Great family pictures of your Easter celebration. Always nice to spend time with family and then always nice to get back home. Your soups always look delicious especially on cool days and that is what we are having. Hoping for the 60's soon. Yorkshire pudding is something neither Tom or I have ever has will have to look into that next time we have roast beef.

    1. We have been bust getting stuff done and enjoying the family. Nothing like a good homemade soup.
      I use a mix for the Yorkshire pudding but I don't think you can find it in the states. It is easy enough to make homemade as well.
