A Quiet Night

We are enjoying a long weekend here in Canada. Its the first long weekend since Easter and the unofficial start of summer. My husband and I are enjoying the extra time to relax together. Yesterday I put together a nice, bigger then usual supper for us to enjoy. We had steaks, baked potatoes, fresh green beans, warm grilled bread and he had a lobster tail. I'm not a fan of lobster, so I only bought one. It was a nice quiet night. We enjoyed some s'mores ice cream sandwiches together out on the deck after supper. Did you enjoy some outdoor time yesterday too?

@marlina I wouldn't mind too much the lobster. I usually do enjoy lobster. But I do understand that it is not for everyone.

Great that you had such a relaxing evening! My outdoor time was spent mowing the front lawn.

I'm sure that your hard work paid off when you see how beautiful it looks nice and freshly cut.

I spent a lot of time outside yesterday. I started my morning with a 12 km walk. Then laundry....al of it dried on the clothesline. Then most of the afternoon playing in the dirt.

That is a good long walk, good for you! I take it that little Sandra was over coaxing you to play in the dirt with her.

@Juliaacv Sandra has been absent for more than a week. . But....Tuesday after school she will be coming and staying for an entire week. That should keep me busy. We think we have figured out how to do my walking on the days she isn't in school. The stroller will see some use.

@fishtiger58 I was too, and when I look at the sky it looks like its going to clear up, but then I look at the puddles and I can see drops still falling.

Thank you, I'm trying to keep my mind off of the waiting game process that I'm in with the possibility of getting called back for a second interview. This is a picture of our back deck at our last home, I haven't even taken any pictures here as of yet. This deck is lower, only about a foot off of the ground, but very large. We just do not have the fantastic view at this home like we did the last one.

That sounds yummy! I mowed part of the lawn yesterday, so I guess I did enjoy a bit of outdoor time.

Thank you, grilled meals always taste best-especially at the beginning of the season. My husband mowed the lawn yesterday also.

@katsmeow1213 I know, here too. Rainy and cool, and when its just the slightest dry and mild day I'm outside grilling our meals for a nice change.

That would have been a lovely relaxing time. Lobster is expensive here but I do like it.

Lobster is pricey here also, but it doesn't harm every once in a while.

I wanted to have some outdoor activities with my little niece. Since she's having her summer vacation. But then, we always have monsoon rain lately.

It has been raining here on and off all morning, not exactly a monsoon, but it can stop and I'll be happier.

It wasn't very warm here yesterday, but it's been better today, and it's due to be warm this week. That means that I can start planting the garden. Sounds like you had a lovely meal.

Thank you, this is a shot of our former back yard. When we lived out in the rural village. I haven't taken a single picture here as of yet. I haven't unpacked the cord for the camera to download the pictures to the computer as of yet......and my phone takes lousy pictures.

It was too warm yesterday with the temp reaching 90 to be outdoors much. The sun was beating down.

I did not do a lobster for me, just one for my husband-I find them too much work and I don't really care for the taste! But everything else was nice. The s'mores ice cream sandwiches were a bit rich, I'm not sure if I'll buy those again.
