Summer is still hanging in and loving it. Finally found a Turkey this morning on sale.

Where are we today ?

     A pretty nice night for sleeping  a bit of rain but the windows open with our window awnings down sure was wonderful. Got my coffee done and emails checked then at 8 am I headed into Kitchener in search of Frozen Turkeys on sale. The No Frills in New hamburg were sold out, but had at least 2 stores to check out there. Ok The first one I went to had what I wanted a 16 lb Turkey at .95 cents a lb. Perfect for our Canadian Thanksgiving meal with my 3 kids, spouses and 7 grands on Oct 9th. I said I would cook the turkey and bring gravy and fresh cranberry/orange sauce. So now that is taken care of. Still have to find cranberries but lotsa time for that.
        But also while I was in Kitchener around the corner was a Canadian Tire store that I need to stop at. Pick up one new tire for the car , I bought 2 new ones last year and one replaced free under warranty was time for this one now. But like always we had enough Canadian tire points to pay for this tire, so no cost to us. We do like free!
a nice country drive into Kitchener
      Back home here before 10 am so Suzie took our Turkey to store in her brother's freezer for a couple of weeks and pick up the little mail that might be there.
      A nice light lunch as usual apple, banana, and a small bowl of bean soup did the trick. Then I headed back to hop the mower for about 90 minutes to cut the rear  2.5 acres of the yard here. I will finish the front part tomorrow and will probably be the last time this year for me.
such a perfect warm sunny day up to 82F and not a cloud in the sky
our coach the small white spot  in the middle of this photo
not too bad but need a close cutting
      This all done just before 2 pm so now I can relax in the shade with Suzie and get right back into my page turner book The Fix by David Baldacci.
what a perfect late summer day and so peaceful here
we really love it hear.
       Now about 4:30 I preheated our Weber Q, whipped up a salad and grilled a Turkey Breast. 35 minutes later done to perfection. Crispy on the outside and so moist and tender. Of course lotsa leftovers and more bones to go into a pot of soup sometime this week, Our freezer is getting full of bones gotta use them up. An we will be outta homemade soup soon.
smells so good cooking here right beside us reading our E-readers
sure did the trick tonight
       Such a wonderful relaxing day and now outside enjoying more of this warm weather at 7:30pm still in the mid 70's F , no problem here thats for sure.
       Back to enjoying our reading and eventually head on inside for the night.
       Thanks once again  for stopping on by and hope y'all had some wonderful weather as well.

  1. Quite a big area to cut...but with the riding mower, it can sometimes be enjoyable. Your dinner looked really good tonight.

  2. Some pretty awesome days for sure! Even when it rains right now it is warm out. Glad you got your turkey, they are on sale around here too but I don't need a bird. Maybe a turkey breast though for Bill and I.

    1. Yes they sure are beautiful, reminds me of the desert in the southwest. I like to get a turkey when on sale, less that half price, and can always find a place to store it around here.
