2019 October 13 Sunday in Liberty Hill, Texas

Any question as to why we spend more time in Texas than Iowa?God bless and g’nite

Pastor John Saint’s sermon, “The Tenth Leper”.

On the way home from worship, I stopped at Parker’s and purchased a couple pounds of ground Chuck and some sour cream.

For lunch I made some hamburger patties on the George Forman Grill. This is our 2nd grill of the same modle. We liked the first one so much lunch that, when I saw this one in a rummage sale for $5, I quickly bought it. I was surprised that it had all of the grill plates, waffle plates, and griddle plate. Most of my cooking is done between the GF Grill and the instapot.

2019 October 12 Saturday

2019 October 12 Saturday in Liberty Hill, Texas

49° overnight with a mostly overcast sky. It rose to 71° under a mostly cloudy sky.

Before bedtime, I turned the fireplace off and one of the milkhouse heaters on to a low setting. When I woke this morning, it was 66°, which is about ideal sleeping temperature. And so we slept in.

Sometime before 8 I got up and fixed oatmeal with raisins, and coffee. Then went back to be bed until Ella as ready to get up.

Jardin Corona for lunch

Pinto beans and cornbread for supper.

God bless and g’nite

Day 12 in our Texas home.

2019 October 11 Friday

2019 October 11 Friday in Liberty Hill, Texas

What a difference a day makes. 50 degrees cooler and rain!

.

The Leander senior center wasn’t very busy today. Ella and I are alone almost all morning. Just before lunch, another half dozen people arrived.

We ate and then left for Ella’s ENT appointment. You remember, the one we stopped on Tuesday the 8th to verify the appointment. We were told today that, not only that she doesn’t have an appointment, but that the doctor isn’t in the office on Fridays. !!!??? She set ash ask appointment for next week.

We came home, started the electric fireplace, stretched out in the recliners with warm throw blankets over our legs.

Eventually I assembled some potato-corn chowder in the Instapot. While we waited for the 4 minute pressure cook time,we played Fast Track.

God bless and g’nite

Day 10 in our Texas home.

2019 October 09 Wednesday

2019 October 09 Wednesday in Liberty Hill, Texas

61° and overcast that became mostly clear and 89°.

Before we left for Grandies this morning, I put some chicken thighs and Stovetop dressing in the Instapot on slow cook. After the meeting we played canasta.We were home by noon and the stuff in the Instapot was done. All I had to do for lunch was microwave some peas and open a can of peach slices.

Outside temperature

Inside temperature was too hot to do anything and too uncomfortable to nap. I sat outside under the awning where it felt cooler. The winds of 15 to 25 mph were welcome.

Cross Tracks Church Choir practice tonight was a cool relief for us because the chapel is air conditioned. When we returned home it had dropped to 88° inside and 85° outside.

The sunset happened before we came out from choir practice. However I captured the almost-full moon.

God bless and g’nite

Day 8 in our Texas home.

2019 October 10 Thursday

2019 October 10 Thursday in Liberty Hill, Texas

76° and foggy/hazy that broke th through about 9:30 became mostly clear and 93° inside and out.

There were 44 at Over The Hill Gang today. Not bad for a day that they aren’t serving chicken. That’s right, the once a month day, when they serve fried chicken, is the most attend attended day of the moon month. Today they served meatloaf (the food, not the singer/actor)

The meatloaf contained onions. Th The last time I are meatloaf weedy containing onions, I look looked like this …

and spent 6 hours in the emergency room. I no longer eat onions. Instead, for lunch, i had some very bland pinto beans.

The Laundromat in Leander has excellent air conditioning and a comfy couch. Not coincidentally, they also have washing machines and clothes dryers. Our home has neither washers and dryers nor air conditioning. So, it seemed like a good idea to hang out at the laundromat for a few hours today.

Wal-Mart also has air conditioning among other items that we wanted to purchase. So, we hung out at Wal-Mart for awhile also.

Even after all these tactics to delay going home, we still had to go home. It was 93.7° inside when we arrived.

I have contacted 3 RV repair “specialists” and have yet to have any of them call me back.

God bless and g’nite

Day 9 in our Texas home.

2019 October 08 Tuesday

2019 October 08 Tuesday in Liberty Hill, Texas

A very pleasant 55° this morning that reached 84° by mid afternoon.

A white ball in an orange sky at daybreak.

I was trying to photograph the miles of bumper to bumper traffic in/through Liberty Hill this morning. But since we were driving into the sun, the sun is what you see.

We were on the move because I had an eight o’clock appointment with my VA doctor. I arrived at 8:04 and was still checking in we when I was called back to her examine room. The results of my labwork were all good with the exception of my A1C which is higher than previously. I do a go good job of not eating sweets … unless there are sweets to eat. I truly do not crack cravecandy. I’m more of a salty snack eater. However, if there are candies or pasteries in the house, I will gobble them down.

From my doctor’s we went to Ella’s Ear Nose and Throat doctor to check on an appointment. She has for Friday.

We then went to the Georgetown senior center for lunch.

When we returned home it was still relatively cool or at least bearable inside. I began working to update some of my blogs, but soon dozed off.

When I woke, I was surprised that I had slept so long. I fixed a bowl of cereal so that I could take my supper pills before going into church for the Tuesday night prayer meeting. I forgot that the wall clock is an hour off. See the October 06 post for more about the clock.

It was cooler preside than indium inside so outside I went, to wait until it was really time to go to church. When the time came, I told Ella to get in the truck. She seemed confused. She had forgotten about the prayer meeting.

When we returned from church, it was considerably cooler inside.

God bless and g’nite

Day 7 in our Texas home.

2019 October 07 Monday

2019 October 07 Monday in Liberty Hill, Texas

61° and completely cloud covered this morning. The clouds were gone by midday and it reached 79 for the high. That is the lowest high that this section of paradise has had in a good long while.

The eastern sky at “sunrise”.

The southern sky had more color than the eastern.

A half hour later the sun almost broke through.

Give us our daily bread. We went to the Georgetown senior center. The local stores donate their day old bread to the seniors

A dominoes game was being played at the center today.

However, most were visiting or watching TV. I’m hoping that bingo will be restarted. Larry, th the person who always called bingo died this summer and no one has stepped up to call.

Just a doodle from today. I should have had a motorhome pulling it all.

Cloudless sky at sunset

God bless and g’nite
