Chores STUFF and Errands.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

As the old song said of rocking and rolling all night long that wasn’t the case for either Kathy or I last night. What we did do was spend the night tossing and turning all night long. It reflected on our energy levels as well as we seemed to be dragging the proverbial anchor around throughout the day. As anyone who has Sleep Apnea can attest to you don’t always have the most restful nights and Insomnia is a side effect of the illness. 
We didn’t have breakfast until well after 9:00 this morning and the Weather Channel gave the same report as yesterday that we could expect thunderstorms throughout the day. So after spending another hour on the computers Kathy started going through our storage room. She managed to purge more STUFF that we no longer need or use and will be going to the Garage Sale in June and if it doesn’t sell that day it will go to the charitable drop-off the next day. 
Myself I went outside to do a few things to the truck. I managed to remove the front license plate so that I could affix the new sticker for another year. In the process I had wanted to attach a secondary plate to it but found the bolts were too short to use rubber so I used metal straps. I also found the old brackets to be tarnishing and in need of replacement. 
Instead of running one errand for the bracket this afternoon I called around to see where I could find a pizza stone that would work on our Weber Q 120. I called Williams Restaurant Supplies and explained what I wanted and that it could only be twelve inches in diameter. They guaranteed me they had that size and more. 
I kept telling Kathy to take a break from her sorting so this would be the perfect get away. As we headed to the car in the parking lot the dark clouds were beginning to roll in. Ten minutes later as we were heading westbound on the E.C. Rowe Expressway a line of raindrops appeared across our windshield and then the wind dried it off. 
Of course the restaurant supply didn’t have the small pizza stones they said they did and couldn’t understand why a larger one wouldn’t work. We stopped at Home Outfitters and Home Sense but they only had the larger sized stones as well.  
I needed to stop at Canadian Tire to get the license plate cover and a new set of wiper blades for the truck. Last week I had put new Rain-X wipers on the car and have never had dry windows like that before so you can imagine what brand I got for the truck today. On a fluke Kathy thought we should look around their outdoor living area just in case they might have pizza stones. Not only did they have pizza stones but they only carried them in the size we needed. 
Back at the apartment Kathy made a beautiful mixed salad and sautéed a couple of Portabella Mushrooms while I barbecued a couple of nice chicken breast on our Weber Q. As we were enjoying our delicious supper the rain started coming down hard. Watching the 6 o’clock News showed what little spray we got hit with on the expressway hours before had turned into a major downpour in downtown Windsor. 
Tomorrow we’ll pick up another pizza so we can try out the pizza stone which is sure to give us better results than we had the last time. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
