Thursday, April 1st, not too much to report. lol Ray ran into Duncan for a few things and I finished up washing all the linens in the Motorhome getting it ready to use again next month. By late afternoon it started sprinkling out. I also busied myself making Beef Wellington with mushroom gravy and roasted cauliflower for dinner. Ray's been in too much pain this past week, so kind of was off his food. It's time to make a great dinner to encourage him to eat. It was a success!
Friday and Saturday was spent on a little of this and a little of that. lol Mostly laundry as all the bedding came out of the MH so I could wash it all after it spending a year in there without use.
I did a bunch of prepping for our smoked turkey dinner on Sunday. I find as I age, it is easier doing some of the work a couple days before, like the cranberry sauce and gravy as I roast turkey wings for stock so all I have to do is smoke the turkey, roast some vegetables and cook potatoes. Otherwise a quiet Easter Weekend for us.
Easter Sunday, turkey day, even if it is only for Ray and I. The sun has finally returned so it will be a nice day. Last year I smoked a turkey for Easter Dinner for our neighbours, all socially distanced as that was the beginning of this Covid 19 mess. Little did I know that we would all still be in the same position a year later, still socially distanced.
This year both neighbours have some of their family living with them so they are all celebrating at their own places. Roy and June have one daughter, son-in-law and 2 kids living with them since October as they sold their house and recently bought another one. All their kids work with them at their business so are all in their bubble. Cory brought his brand new trailer over for his family and they camped in June's driveway to try it out. What a camping spot with a complete outdoor kitchen, and heaters. They also have a jungle gym playhouse and swing set for the kids.
Kids going for a short fishing trip. :) All those little ones lasted over half an hour. I was surprised. The whole family is mad for fishing.
