Relaxed But Productive Day.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

Most people find dreams amusing to the point that they can chuckle or get ideas from them later on. For myself I find they rob me of the sleep that I need to feel refreshed because the dreams I do have are about working on a project. In real life I have never seen the job before but I am physically going through the motions of what I am dreaming. When we were having breakfast this morning if it hadn’t been for Kathy talking to me I’d probably have ended up face first in my cereal.
All the sites in this area were filled for the weekend.
Some of the units still here left shortly after, while others were just arriving.
After getting caught up on our morning reading we started getting some of our chores done. In the process we were watching out the door at an almost non-stop flow of the Weekend Warriors heading towards the park exit. At that point Kathy had already started cooking our supper in the slow cooker as well as getting the Hungarian Houlka readied for me to slow cook on our Weber.
Seeing our neighbors Bob and Sherri outside also watching the park exodus that was taking place we had a chance to go over and get to know them slightly better. We also had the chance to compare notes of what each of us was doing to dress up our lots. We also exchange ideas of places we’ve travelled to and future destinations we all want to visit. The conversation only slowed slightly while I walked back to our site to turn the Houlka on the grill. It was nearly 1:00 by the time we had our late lunch but the wait made it taste all the better.
Applying another coat of Stain.
Even though our lunch was not heavy after our Tandem Bike ride around the park yesterday we still felt the need to go for another ride to help burn off some of our lunch. When we got to the Transient section of the park it was practically empty and the only reason it wasn’t was there were new arrivals just coming in the park.
Kathy adding our park address to the table.
Back Home Kathy wasn’t happy with the organization of our cupboard where our china was located so she wanted to make it more efficient. My chore was to apply additional stain to our picnic table. After putting a plastic tarp under the table I was half completed the process when Kathy came outside having finished her chore to enjoy the sunshine. She commented that on certain areas of the table that within minutes of my staining it there was little visible effect left because the wood was just absorbing the stain like a sponge. Today’s temperature actually reached 75 F (24 C) but feeling warmer which really helped the table to dry quickly. After giving the table some drying time I positioned it so that Kathy could apply our site number on the table with stick on letters.
Large enough to see from the road.
Once that process was over I cleaned up outside while Kathy went in to start plating our supper. It was a healthy feast of Chicken with Asparagus, Tomatoes, baked Potato and Cranberry/Orange relish topped off with a small mixed fruit dish for dessert.
Healthy supper.
We had the dishes washed and put away by the time the 6 o’clock News started. Being that this was the last day of the Victoria Day Long Weekend it was a short broadcast. Being set up on the dining room table I listened to the news while filling our medicine Doucettes for the next few weeks that way we are not tied up every Saturday evening while I do this chore.
Kathy's cut Flowers nearly two weeks later.
As soon as the news was over we hopped on the Tandem Bike again but this time we rode up towards the front gate where we were able to mail a letter. Just the couple of hours since the earlier ride the temperature was noticeably cooler. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

The World's Great Proverbs 

The sooner begun, the sooner done.


  1. Gotta love the fresh air and exercise.

  2. Sherri and I love hearing from you. We have not decided where we are going before we head up to Colorado. Stay safe and enjoy

  3. I love that Hungarian Houlka and all the Hungarian food since that was what I was eating while growing up. Nancy learned a lot of Hungarian cooking from my Mom.

  4. Curiosity led me to Google "Hungarian Houlka". The first citation offered to help me find Hungarian people in Houlka, MS. The second one was a Wikipedia article on Hungarian sausages, which included a sausage called "hurka". It sounded like Polish "kiszka". The article is at

  5. Sounds like you're settling in nicely! We're finally getting warmer weather, too, and loving it! We had a fair amount of campers last weekend, and we'll be full for the holiday weekend. Let the fun begin - Tom is on Security duty Thurs., Fri., Sat. night!
