Warmer day again lawn mowing and enjoy this wonderful day

Where are we today ?

        Running the fan in our air conditioner last night sure helped keep things comfortable for sleeping just moving the air around with no breeze at all. Pretty well 70 all night long and the same at 5:30 this morning. A bit of sunshine to start the day and mostly comfortable . Got a lovely walkabout town for a couple of miles, stopped by Pettigrew's and paid the invoice from the work the other day.Thenback home before 8 am.
      I wanted a few things for supper tonight so a quick trip to New Hamburg to pick that up and home again by 8:30. Hopped on the mower about 10 am, got it going and down by the coach, Then stopped to make an early lunch. Wanted to get some lawn mowed today before the predicted very hot weather coming this way.  headed out at 11;30 and mowed 3/4s of the yard by 1:30. Will finish the last bit at the front around the house probably tomorrow. only about 45 minutes and done. Getting hot while I was doing this and Suzie took her Dad to Stratford for another doctors appointment.

stopped for lunch and ready to go again
heading down the tree line 
    Then into the fields and looks so cool.
no stopping and starting just in circles 
        Then across from the last few acres  looks like wheat to me below , but then I am not a farmer.
wheat maybe?
circles all done looks cool to me anyway
      Now because of this hotter weather we are having Suzie wanted something cold for supper. So once the lawn was mowed I whipped up a Broccoli Apple salad we enjoy and have not had for a while. For that recipe you can click  HERE  or my revised recipe blog top right sidebar.  I only made 1/2 of that recipe just enough for us tonight but also added some cut up fresh mushrooms, just because I can and we like fresh mushrooms. 
salad all prepped an in the fridge to cool down
and marry the flavours together
     That taken care of it was pretty warm then I went for a nice refreshing swim in the pool made me feel wonderful once again. More comfortable to relax in the shade and getting back into a new page turner.
     Suzie got home shortly after 3 pm and she felt like a swim as well, I will always go and enjoy this pool swimming with my favourite mermaid. Heck we can and we will enjoy it here while we can.

       A nice quiet Happy hour and soon time for supper. Pretty easy tonight this wonderful salad and a canned ham we wanted to use up, it was due to be used and we do enjoy them on occasion. Along with some tasty extra old aged  cheddar cheese we love.
What great meal we enjoyed on another hot summer day
     Later last night I took a  drive down the road to catch a nice sunset only a few hundred yards beyond the trees here.

      That was our busy wonderful day we both enjoyed. getting more things taken care of before we leave this area. Most of the lawn mowed, pool enjoyed and a tasty supper well.  
    Thanks for dropping in and hope your enjoyed your day as well.
    Maybe I will catch another sunset tonight to post tomorrow.

 Where have we been this Summer ?


  1. Sounds like a great day and a very tasty dinner.

    1. It was a wonderful day and dinner was excellent thanks.

  2. Chilled salads in the summer are wonderful and that looks really good. Getting creative with the lawn mowing Looks wonderful

    1. It was a very tasty salad lotsa good stuff in it.
      Just mowing the circles was interesting and think it saved about 10 minute.

  3. Another lovely hot day. Perhaps you should start the mowing at 8 before it gets hot. :) Out here in the country, Bill starts at 7 or 7:30, the neighbours are all up and off to work.
    The salad looks great. We have had it before and I may make it for Bill's family barbecue. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. It was hot and even hotter today.
      I would but this mower is pretty loud, the lawn its very damp and the one side of the yard has 15 houses backing onto it plus John likes to sleep in late.
      That is a wonderful salad glad you like sit too.

  4. Think I'd prefer the rain we've had over hot'n'humid. But we're heading right into your heatwave, thanks for the warning!

    1. The heat wave will probably be done when you get here.

  5. Could you drive your mower down here and do my lawn please? Love the circles ... and broccoli salad is one of my all time favorites!!

    1. lol, it would not take long to cut it but a long time to get there.
      The circles were fun, and this salad is so very tasty too.

  6. Lawn is looking wonderful once again. Amazing how fast it grows isn't it?! The pool looks awesome for an afternoon of heat. Your dinner looks especially yummy for such a hot day!

    1. It is looking nice again y last cut fo a while. The heat , the sun and the rain keep it growing like crazy cut about every 5-6 days. The pool is wonderful so refreshing.
      Dinner perfect for this hot weather. too.

  7. To think you can mow all that grass and it takes Pollito two to three months to get the job done here.

    Your meals always look delicious.

    1. I can get all 5 acres done in 3 hours and needs to be done at least once a week.
      Thanks we do enjoy our tasty meals.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
