Another uneventful day spent most of the day in bed, not feeling well. I did take some time to make this fruit and nut mix. It’s for our camping trip that we are going on this Friday.

Mix them with oil, sugar and spices, it really is that simple.

We’ll be going up in our F150 truck so it’s kind of like the “maiden voyage” It should be fun and we’ll have lots more room and the drive will be oh so comfy.

Yet another hot and humid day here in Burlington Ontario. To add to this heat I’ve been a little under the weather today which doesn’t make for a good combination. Still we have to motor on as they say. Can you believe that I actually made something that goes in the oven today! It’s 34C in our house and I have to turn on the oven to add to it all.
