Happy Friday to everyone from my little corner here in Canada. I don't have to work today, so its a great Friday for me! This afternoon my husband is off of work. He'll have a toasted ham sandwich when he gets home from work, and then he and I are going shopping together. There is a great butcher that we have been going to for a few years. Its a couple of hours away, now that we've moved, but still worth the drive and time involved getting there. Its time to stock up on some great steaks-its getting to be grilling time, and we love our grilled steaks. And we'll try to stop in at our son's place on our way back, since we'll drive thru the city that they live in now. What fun plans have you for this wonderful Friday?

It's after 9 am and I am not sure other than waiting on two packages. I am having company a little later and that will be nice.

So far I'm just having my first cup of coffee so haven't even thought about the day ahead. Enjoy your drive this afternoon especially visiting your son. Happy Friday! Happy Weekend

I just love going for drives with my husband, he makes any car ride so much fun. I did just get home from getting my groceries and putting them away. I bought a lot of strawberries, all of which have been washed, and cleaned and quartered and are now in a big bowl in the fridge. I also bought a lot of green grapes, and they too are all washed up and in the fridge ready to be nibbled on. Enjoy your day today!!

I hope I get to stay home. Do you have a cooler in your car for when you meat shop? I keep a small cooler in the car all the time, Tony drinks so much I keep cola and water in it at all times. BUT I have been known to dump those and put meats inside to stay colder until I get home. Have a wonderful day.

We usually bring out 2 large coolers for the meat. My husband should be home any time now and then after he eats we'll head out. And its just a beautiful afternoon for a drive. I hope that you got to stay home today and that its a good day.

A good butcher is worth supporting I think. I guess you'll all be having many more barbecues soon.

We usually grill our meals more often then not once the weather turns nice. Its easier and so much nicer to sit outside while it cooks instead of inside while it cooks.

@Juliaacv That's very true. However here we find the insects drive us inside sometimes.

Thanks, so far its a nice day out, although they are forecasting a possibly messy weekend. This butcher has the best meat at the greatest prices. So we really load up when we go there.

I'll send you one and one for your sweet Mom, how's that? We will buy up lots of them and when we get home I always divide them up into freezer bags. Our son has been texting me asking me when Dad and I will come by this afternoon. Of course I don't know the exact time, but told him that we'll text him when we leave the market-its an hour away.

@Juliaacv what kind of steaks are they? We get sirloin at applebees and "broil steak" or something at our grocery store. The steaks will last you awhile!

It's nice that you don't have to work today. I don't have any real plans for today. May just stay home and relax until I have to go pick up my kids.

I was glad to have today off, although I actually would have preferred yesterday as the stores are a lot busier on Fridays.

@dodo19 We took the 401 from London down to Windsor, and it was crazy busy. We came home part way on the highway, but then stopped at our son's place and came the back way from there.

If you're walking outside today, I hope that you are either really careful or aren't having the ice storm that we are having. We had rain that froze about 11 this morning and turned to sleet and its been doing it ever since. And there is about an inch of ice everywhere.

@Juliaacv we are having the same storm and it’s a doozie, we went to the YMCA yesterday early morning before the storm hit, we will be staying home today, ice is everywhere, the wind is scary and I just heard something my roof...I hope it’s a limb and not a whole tree. Warnings everywhere, stay off the roads because of the ice but also the trees. I don’t walk outside yet, I go to the Y to walk.

@PainsOnSlate I cannot believe how much ice has accumulated. I won't be stepping foot outside until I have to leave for work tomorrow-I have severe osteoporosis in my spine and hip and I do not have to fall to shatter the bones, so I'm always extra careful especially on ice.

How lucky you were to have a Friday off! I had to work yesterday. However, I have the weekend off. It will be a busy weekend though. Tomorrow is Little Miss's 3rd birthday. Have to bake a cake today. Tomorrow we have a party planned for her.

Here I am a day late responding to you, I'm sorry. We got a lot of delicious cuts of meat yesterday for some really great prices. And we had a fun visit with our son and his wife. I can't wait to read all about the RV you looked at.
