Yep its cool fall weather, but we were busy anyway, a nice day trip to New Hamburg again, just cause we can.

Where are we today ?
       Its cooler  here, high today 16c (60f) and a bit of a cool north wind, but a few warmer clothes and out for my walkabouts . Hey this is only the beginning of winter, it will get a lot worse and we sure hope not to be here, like last winter.
       One big bonus is the campground is very, very quit just the way we love it. A few people here but so peaceful.
        This morning a quick short trip up the road to Juicy Fruit Orchards pick up some, more squash, white corn, and a couple pumpkins for the Grands to carve next week. Pumpkins in the car $3.00 each.
this cost a total of $4.00,
gotta love it
       The maintenance is now working on the other water leak before we left at noon.
         At noon headed back to New Hamburg (only 90 minutes away, that's why we here close by) Meeting with Suzie's family about her mom's care was discussed. Me, I had my other hearing aide checked out, was not working. Go figure when they checked it out is now working just fine! Oh well, picked up a few groceries, wondered about town for a while and stopped by the thrift store. Picked up a (new to me) pair of dress pants 5 bucks.  I have nothing here that fits anymore, hmmm....
we did get to see some wonderful fall colors on
 our travels thoughwas kinda nice
       Not back home until 5:30 pm, so a later supper than normal, but does not take me too long to throw it together.
this water leak has been repaired,
they will fill it in tomorrow
           Today picked up 2 cobs of white corn. It is pretty rare but we really love it when we can find it. Find it much more tender and a sweeter that the popular Peaches and cream.
Maybe the peaches and cream looks prettier
but the white corn is tastier
         Fire up our Weber Q to preheat, made a salad and wrapped the corn in foil, stuffed a jalapeno pepper with cream cheese for me and the chop was done in no time.
it was a large pork chop so we shared it
taste test, both corn was good but the white much nicer
           Was a cool day but we were in the car most of it, sun shining and got things done that needed to be done.
          Thanks again for stopping in and really hope you had a wonderful day as well.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Spring and Summer.


  1. Glad you are counting the days and getting ready to migrate south for the winter.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. The temperature isn't so bad at 60f. It will start getting much colder. You have to get out of there before it dips much more though.

    1. Not that bad but the weather we like to sit outside and read. Only 20 more days before we cross the border.

  3. Hi George & Suzie - Cooking looks good, as always! Can you tell me what is always on top of your salads?

    1. Thanks for stopping by.

      On top, 6 bean salad mix, cranberries, ripe oiives, ground Flax seed. then sprayed with evoo and balsamic vinegar the recipe Our Daily Lettuce Salad and dressing in my recipe Blog right sidebar.

  4. Oh those gorgeous colors are making me homesick. I love Autumn in Ohio.

    1. The colors are nice but not the cold only 34f here this morning, brrrr....
