Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.
With the cool nights we have been getting we’ve been keeping the windows closed but that hasn’t stopped us from having wonderful nights of sleep. When I saw the clock reading 8:00 this morning I struggled to get myself moving but within minutes of my leaving the bedroom I could hear Kathy moving around the other room. Once I had the drapes opened and I had started getting breakfast ready she had joined me in the dining room.
The Weather channel was showing that today would be the last nice outdoor day with these moderate temperatures for more than a week. It also indicated that the outdoor vegetation would be getting naturally watered by late afternoon. With that we made a plan to do our grocery shopping after lunch. So now we were scouring the pantry, cupboards and fridge to see what we needed to pick up.
Now we could relax and get caught up on our E-mail and blog reading. We also managed to get things arranged for our very next trip out with the trailer for next month when we attend the 54th Escapade in Goshen Indiana.
Last night I had written how we had finished the last of our Easter leftovers but I was wrong. Kathy has always been able to make food last longer than most but since our return from this last trip it is determined we need to reduce our waist sizes. This in effect means she is serving smaller portions which also stretches our grocery budget. Before we knew it we were having supper for lunch and it truly was the last of the Easter Leftovers.
We were out the door shortly after 12:00 noon on our way to the local Zehr’s grocery store. Since our last serious grocery trip was done down south we were in a state of shock refamiliarizing ourselves with the Canadian pricing system. Even once we had worked out the Metric to Standard conversions it was still sticker shock over the higher prices.
Back at the apartment once all the food stocks were separated and put away we decided to relax on the Balcony. It wasn’t all relaxing though because while were outside I fired up the Weber Q. On Low and Slow just like George recommends I started cooking a nice chicken that Kathy had just bought at the grocery store. We even had a chance to talk with Grant and Sandy as they were also enjoying this wonderful weather on their balcony above us.
During the time the chicken was cooking twice we could not hear the sizzling of our meal cooking and found that the low flame had been blown out. I’ll have to make a windscreen to stop that from happening but I rectified the problem this time by simply rotating the grill and a short time later the chicken was done to perfection. Kathy had put together a wonderful salad to finish the meal with since we’d had our heavier meal at lunch.
It’s a good thing we had a slow day today because the rest of the week is going to get hectic. As of the time of this posting we still have not gotten the predicted rainfall that was said to be here before supper. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
