Enjoy! Getting to (and from) the farm now entails the need to pack the car...unpack the car...plan the meals in advance. It was a lot easier when I left more stuff there...

Just rolling out of bed and having coffee. Ahhhh! I slept LATE! It was a fantastic sleep. Looks like another fabulous day here so I think my plan will be:
- do laundry and dry it outside
- clean the house (its scary!)
- take a break to read in the sunshine
- plan the menu for our trip to the mountains next week and make a shopping list
- reorganize and clean out the fridge
- do some more laundry
- make a yummy dinner outside (see dinner thread for details on that)

For now though, I'm going to finish my coffee and count the mosquito bites I got last night on our walk. Rotten little beasties.

Then for lunch we decided to go to the local chippie...we got a seafood box with crumbed prawns, calamari, battered butterfish and chips...very tasty! We ate it in the park close by as it has cleared up by this time

Now we are enjoying some lemon cheesecake and a cup of coffee
Sounds wonderful. Do you live near the coast? Stirling has good memories of eating at a chippie in Australia, near the coast. He was visiting his grandparents. He said they had an amazing selection of fish and the menu was a chalkboard which listed today's catch. I wish I lived near the ocean.

Taxy, we dont live by the coast, we are about a 25 minute drive away

We have a lot of fish and chip shops around our area though, this one we go to has the tastiest food

It is really nice to visit all the coastal suburbs here Taxy, the beaches are so lovely and yes they do have great seafood.

The other weekend we went down to Semaphore beach and had fish and chips by the ocean...very nice

25 minute drive? That's near the shore. I live on Montreal Island in the Saint Lawrence River. If I drive along the river for about 7 hours, I get to salt water. I don't like fresh water fish.

Wow, I did not realise it takes you guys so long to get to the ocean

I am now thinking a 25 minute drive is not bad then

A lot of people live right on the waterfronts, that would be lovely
