        Hey we are going to have a very hot day, yay! My kinda weather. Gonna get up to 30 C (86F) and it did. Now today we are going to have a partial eclipse , so I headed into Forest for a few groceries and see if I could snag some solar eclipse glasses, But as I expected none where to be found.
        But I had a plan "B" make a pin hole camera thing from a cereal box. Need a box of cereal anyway, so not a problem. I set to work and in a few minutes was all made just waitng for the eclipse to happen.
quick and easy to make
this is too cool maybe 30 percent
the eclipse is moving 
        Tonight a very moist Turkey meat loaf for supper, I followed this recipe that I found on the web, clic here or my recipe blog top right sidebar.
mushrooms and onions ready
sauted down and ready to mix
trivet I use to raised the meatloaf off the grill
         Between cooking and watching the eclipse we noticed a stillness in the air, no wind and no birds, very eerie.

      Then a bit later as we were enjoying our e-readers a few friends stopped by to chat, First was Martin , then Ron stopped by on his bicycle, and Walt as he wandered on by and as usual Walt is working on something.
hi Walt
then Melinda stopped in to say hi as well
       But now almost 4:30 time to put our meatloaf on the Weber Q with the trivet, Just about an hour it was done to perfection, low and slow is the trick and no peaking.
perfect 
added to our green salad and we both really enjoyed it
leftovers of course
meat loaf sandwiches that we love.
    What a fun day, we enjoyed the partial eclipse, chat with a few people and enjoyed this amazing weather and a very tasty supper. What are can we ask for?
    Thank y'all for taking the time to check us out and hope you got to see some of the eclipse as well.

Where have we been this summer ?
