Fun in the sun. yippee!!!

Where are we today ?
         Sunshine and warmer weather is on the menu today. Can we handle it ? You betcha it is awesome, amazing and even wonderful too.
         To start the day off I baked 1/2 dozen  Cranberry/Orange muffins, for an early morning snack, no recipe used a mix, sorry....
fresh baked muffins
        Then an early morning trip to Rouse's market for a few groceries along the Gulf Shores. Love the drive along the beach so peaceful!
I-90 along the Gulf beaches
        A few of the old oak trees were taken out with Katrina and they have turned some of them into beautiful carvings. This one below is Dolphins, so beautiful, sorry the picture does not do it justice.

        Back home the sky is beautiful blue, no clouds and no wind, 65f and is just amazing in the sunshine.
awesome day
        We chatted with sales people here for a bit to check out new offers they had, but not for us right now. Although some good deals to be had. And what did we get for out 30 minute presentation? Coupons for more more 1/2 price buffets! Not sure if we need anymore of these but we have them anyway. We did find out lots of interesting information anyway.
        So the sun is shinning, the temperatures are great, gotta get our chairs out and enjoy the sunshine and our books. The rest of the afternoon was absolutely wonderful we just kept moving our chairs to stay in the sun. And can you believe it? We're out until almost 5 o'clock! Mind you chatted with a few new neighbors from New York, Pennsylvania and staff from the park well. Overall a very fun day, outside enjoying the great weather. Even got a few walkabouts in there as well.
this is at 4:30pm
Supper on our Weber
        Time to start supper so fired up our Weber Q 100 thru on three potatoes to bake and a cornish hen, close the lid and one hour later done to perfection. Added some cauliflower with cheese , 1/2 a crusty bun and we have a wonderful tasty supper. Sure love cooking on our Weber!
yep it was tasty
        By the time we are done eating and chatting, whip up the dishes, can now relax for bit with our books, maybe watch the tube for a few minutes and call it a night. Sure love these sunny warm days!
         I know I have said it before and will say it again, really do appreciate y'all stopping by for a read and do hope you had a great day too!
         Weekend is here think we gonna be busy.........

  1. Handling sunshine and the beach is no problem for us at all. We have the sunshine but not the beach. Enjoy!

  2. Huh, good to see the sun again right? You deserve it for sure. Here it is warming up to 79F next week.

    1. That is great that you are getting the heat back there too. Enjoy.

  3. Yahoo, someone paid Mother Nature's heating bill.
