Bought a nice little 12 volt cooler yesterday. They sell for about $80 brand new (plus 13% tax here in Ontario) so I wouldn't have bought one if we had to pay that kind of money. But I came across a used one online so after a few email conversations I agreed to drive over to get it. She was asking $30, but it was going to cost $10 in gas to go get it! So I offered her $20 and she agreed. Thanks Nicole!
Great for a road trip in the car!
The main reason we wanted a little cooler like this? Cheese.
We love old cheddar cheese. Especially the 2 lb block of Cabot extra sharp cheese that you can't buy in Canada. And it's very difficult to find ANY cheddar cheese in Mexico. So we will be able to stock up and buy a few bricks before we cross into Mexico. But it will also be handy for keeping sandwich meat and lunch items cold while we're on the road.
Ruth made some chocolate chip cookies yesterday. Mmmm. My favorite. Our son Alex watched on so that he could learn how to make them for himself!

Then, Ruth did a roast leg of lamb. One of her father's favorite meals, so we made sure to get that done while we were here. It was delicious!
Mouth watering good!
Taken this morning, the view across the road from Ruth's dad's house. Sure is a calm morning, temperature here is 11C (52F).
