      What's this long weekend with out rain? Very Rare, and did not disappoint us we got the rain.
    Last night was nice and mild, with a few rain showers off and on. Great for sleeping, windows open a bit with our window awnings down makes for a very good night's sleep..
    Up early, a couple walkabouts and got our pot of coffee drank, then headed out shortly after 9 am to the Pinery Fleamarket in Grand Bend hoping to beat the rain. Got there just before the rain began,
but we did take our umbrellas.
      Now here is few pics my youngest daughter Jessica posted on my Facebook page, if you have face book you can see many more.

lots of fresh produce as usual
     Then through the buildings is the way to go check out stuff we don't need.
antique out board motors kinda cool
mini donuts if you care 
lotsa people but hiding from the rain
we have our umbrellas and needed them today
      We walked about 1/3 of the Market but with the heavy rain, called it quits after getting a supply on my extra hot pepperettes. Time to head back home get outta the rain.
they are selling these $220.00 each wish I still had ours
       A nice tasty lunch we had and still raining so I headed down to the wonderful fitness centre here for a good workout.
        By 2 pm the rain let up and we were able to enjoy our e-readers outside for a while, chat with a few people then at 4 headed down to the clubhouse for a meet and great with crackers, cheese and popcorn supplied. for and hour or so
the rain stopped and not too bad out now
crackers,cheese, snacks and social time for a while
this our table
       Then home to prep supper, with rain predicted we planned to cook inside.
       We have a spaghetti squash for supper tonight cause it is supposed to rain and it did. For the spaghetti squash recipe you can click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar.

    I had some spaghetti sauce in the freezer that I thawed,fried up some, mushrooms, onions, carrots, garlic, broccoli, added some cooked chicken we had in the freezer, added the sauce made a very tasty meal with leftovers again.

toasted a hot dog bun for garlic bread with cheese
     Sure did the trick for us and as we were eating had another major downpour of rain.  But by 7 pm the rain stopped, skies cleared sun came out and now a beautiful evening, best part of the day. We actually sitting outside now reading and composing this posting. No complaints here thats for sure.
       Just after 8pm Gail walked by with Hailey stopped to chat for a bit and Suzie got another doggie fix. Bonus !
Hailey stopped by for a chin rub
    Another short walkabout and caught the sunset in the trees, about the best we can get where we are here.
    It was another pretty good day,  not too cold, some rain showers off and on the a nice warm sunny evening. Not to shabby at all.
     Thanks for all the birthday wishes and hope you are having a great weekend as well.
     Here it is after 9pm and still outside amazing !

Where have we been this summer ?


  1. Hey...Happy Birthday!! Those peppers looked really good and very fresh. Your supper looked good too. I guess it's just the rainy season lots of places as it has rained off and on today and yesterday, forecast for the next 3 fun in the rain.

    1. The pepper are very fresh as is most of the produce here. we like to play between the raindrops. soon be summer and dry.

  2. Doggy fix for Suzie again I see. I will try to find you on fb.

    1. Yes a good doggie fix again, Thanks Anna, I be out there not sure how you find people though.

  3. The sun was a nice surprise after dinner. Bill said "now it comes out!" Everything was wet so we didn't go out.

    1. It was nice enough to sit our here no problem.
      The sunshine was wonderful.
