And Iâ€™m up, as usual. News is on but it doesnâ€™t seem anything has happened, yet. Am I the only one that expects another attack on 9/11? They showed part of the â€œRemembering 9/11â€ Ceremony. Someone was (badly) singing the National Anthem, everyone in uniform was saluting the flag going by, Obama and his wife were walking.
Meanwhile, we have a â€œRed Flag Warningâ€ (Fire Danger) from the NWS with gusty east winds (25-40 mph) coming at us today. Meaning Yâ€™all Be Careful! If a fire got started itâ€™ll run before the wind. Better make sure everything’s tied down. Supposed to get warmer over the next few days here (low 80â€™s), but the Central Plains are expecting a (really) cold front to move through.
Tried Honey in my coffee today instead of sugar. Yeah, I know the heat kills the honey, but Iâ€™m looking to sweeten my coffee without using sugar. Canâ€™t stand that fake sugar shit; leaves a tingly sensation in the back of my throat.
MMmmm. Spam Spread & Crackers for a lunch snack! Life is good. Making meatloaf later so life will be better. (I make a pretty good meatloaf.)
Nice and Sunny and fairly warm (70 degrees right now) so Iâ€™ve been outside as much as possible. Folded the tent trailer up for Winter. Swapped the coax on my 6btv antenna for some thicker/better coax. Watered the garden and picked todayâ€™s haul (maters & 1 green pepper). Inside Iâ€™ve been scanning Genealogical Helpers and my usual chores.
So, instead of meatloaf for dinner Iâ€™m experimenting. Made beef stuffed cabbage rolls instead. One pan is made exactly by the recipe book. The other has Mexican style maters spread over the top because I couldnâ€™t find another can of condensed tomato soup. AND I have to make instant mashed potatoâ€™s cause weâ€™re out of real potatoâ€™s. Since the meat mix is wrapped in cabbage I donâ€™t figure I need another veggie. Hope they both turn out. (Did. Good. Tasty.)
And thatâ€™s about it. Some folks followed SWMBO home to give us a guesstimate on finishing the taping & pasting. $200. I can live with that. Theyâ€™ll start Saturday. Cool!
