Gorgeous Sunny Saturday

Today is absolutely beautiful, sunny and comfortable outside, we just had to take advantage of such a great weather, what else could we ask for to start the weekend?

Today is the first time that we finally came out and actually enjoyed our yard again. We pulled out an overnight-thawed pork ribs and grilled them outside in our barbeque grill. While waiting for the meat to cook, I started raking the dead leaves in the gardens to give plants fresh airflow. My hubby were raking the leaves that were all over the lawn area, and later I helped him with that as well. We were able to collect few loads of wheelbarrow full of dead leaves today! The lawn still have some brownish color from being asleep the whole winter, but new growth of greens are starting to appear. All the frozen water that were in our garden pond finally melted, possibly ready to have the filter and fountain back on again.

When the porb ribs were cooked I opened a canned of pork and beans and threw them in the microwave for two minutes, and also prepared quick-fix mashed potato. The grilled pork came out yummy, so perfect with the beans and popato. One of my favorite time in the summer or spring is being able to go out like today, and being able to grill meat or burgers for lunch or dinner while enjoying the weather outside! Usually, we dont do outdoor barbequing during winter because it is too cold and bothersome to be outside, and when it is wet, foggy, or snowy, the last thing that you really want to do is being outside and being exposed in the freezing cold while waiting for the food to cook!
