Everything Outdoors

   Spring is truly here and I have been outdoors almost all day. It's up in the low 20'sC and blue skies from wall to wall.

   I started the day with an hour on the tennis courts - Paul and me against Susan and Iona. We started out slowly and were 4-1 down at one point. But we came back and won the set 6-4. I guess we are slow starters!

   Home for coffee and a shower (it was sweaty weather) then I started on the grass. I cut the front before lunch, had lunch and a nap, then cut the back. It probably won't get a cut again until I am back home in two weeks. I did a bit of tidying up in the back yard and picked some rhubarb. I decided it would be pretty dried out by the time I got back so picked enough for a rhubarb crumble. It is now cooling off and I will see if Judy wants it when she comes to take me to the airport tomorrow. If not I will put it in the freezer.

   The house is tidy, my clothes are clean and I just need to pack them first thing tomorrow. I have a busy day (optometrist at 9:30, Hava java at 10:30 and Bridge at noon) but will be ready to head for the airport by 4:00 p.m.

   I am cooking a piece of pork tenderloin for dinner tonight. First I will cut it in slices, then flatten it before frying it for a few minutes - it doesn't need long. Last step will be to slather it in a tasty sauce - probably salsa as it needs to be used up, but last time I used my rhubarb chutney and it was very tasty.

   Almost everything in the fridge is used up except for my breakfast yogurt and something for lunch. I will save a banana to eat at the airport with a granola bar. You never know how long it will be to your next meal!


  1. I've obviously missed something. I went back to a few of your older posts, but I can't find where it is you are travelling to! Wherever it is, I hope you have a good journey and lovely vacation. -Jenn
