Stopped and got some gas for the truck and the quads. We paid $2.92 a gallon with Ken's six cent discount. We're headed to California on Friday, guess we'll find out what they're charging! Oh boy..
We came home and Ken got the quads ready for a ride, during that time the winds really picked up so we knew it wouldn't be a really long ride. Still, the sun was shining!

We ordered some lubricant for the treadmill and it came the other day. If you recall before we left it was trying to kill us whenever we used it. The belt would stop and if you weren't holding on, it was a really hard stop. Ken lubed it up but the problem was still there, darn. The treadmill belt adjustment was maxed out so he took apart where the motor is and tightened up that belt and waalaa problem fixed! Really glad we didn't have to spend $$ for a new one.
Ken did bar b q some chicken for him in the wind, but at least he's got his wind guard. I made some roasted veggies and some rice and gravy. Yummy dinner!
This morning we woke up to cold temps running about 28 degrees. The high only to 48. We don't have a lot of wind like we did yesterday but still some. After coffee, blogging and breakfast I decided to make a chicken soup recipe I saw that was considered paleo. I've been making my own veggie broth for about a year now so went to the freezer and got one of those bags. A little chicken breast, onions, mushrooms and celery. Let all that simmer for an hour or so. The kicker is there's no noodles, you add cooked spaghetti squash. I was impressed it's very good. Only 44 calories a cup!
Ken worked on his banking and paid the propane bill. We had a couple of things to mail so he ran to town and did that. Once he was home we had light lunch and then he started a fire in the wood stove as it's chilly!

Here we are watching reruns of Monk and I'm doing the blog. Looks like Friday we'll take the trailer and head over to CA to celebrate 2 special birthdays. Our middle son, Eric will turn 43 on Thursday and our oldest grandson, Adam will turn 19 on Saturday. Looks like we'll head back on Sunday probably...
Have a wonderful night!
