Just more great weather, lovin' it!

Where are we today ? 
       More amazing weather today, just lovin' it. temps in the high 80's (30c) but a nice breeze, does it get any better? Think not. Just puttered around for a while, enjoyed our books in the shade with a nice breeze.
        Then early afternoon, its a nice day so headed up the hill to visit our friends Al and Sandra. Got there and two other couples that we know are there too. So catching up, telling stories and a few laughs, every one had a great time for a couple hours.
social hour or two
          Last night when we has the storm watch we rolled up our awning. Oops the strap broke so cannot open it again without a ladder. So first thing this morning headed to the office and saw Rob there just heading out to London Ontario. Asked him and he agreed to pick up a new pull strap for us while in town. So this afternoon it arrived and now we are good to go once again. 14 years out of the last one pretty good. Thanks Rob for picking this up for us at a wholesale price!
new awning strap
           A short while later, another storm came in, lighting, thunder and real heavy rains for only about 15 minutes.

         Then I can fire up our Weber to grill a "Cured Boneless pork Loin" rolled in corn meal. Essentially, Canadian Back Bacon. So nice to do as a roast on our Weber Q.
sunshine again almost
preheat the grill then turn to low and slow cooking
put on taters in foil with onions and the Back Bacon roast
now we can enjoy our books for an hour,
 turn the roast and  taters every 15 minutes
last 15 imnutes add the brusel sprouts, turn every 5-6 minutes,
Internal temp of roast about 165f, tender and moist.
let roast rest 10 minutes and carve, awesome!
        So there another great, almost summer day, good company,  good books, and good food, Was awesome.
        Thanks for stopping by and hope your day was good too.
