Not much changing around here except the weather. Most of our daytime temps have been in the 86-92* range, but with the humidity we’ve been running the a/c all the time. We are on the top of a hill and with all the caliche dust swirling around, we don’t keep any windows opened, so we run the fan or a/c.
Then yesterday a cold front came in and off with the a/c and on with the heat pump. Temps going down to 45* and daytime now is about 51*. Off with the sleeveless tee shirts and shorts and on with the sweat shirt and long pants.
Without having to sign anyone in all we have to do is be available for questions and basically “wave” people in. It does get a bit boring, but some of the guys stop by and chat. One permanent worker has become a consistent visitor and we’ve invited him to join us for Thanksgiving dinner.
Yes, we’re going to cook a full-bore holiday dinner with turkey, stuffing, bean casserole, homemade yeast rolls, cranberry sauce and homemade pumpkin pie.
Yes, I know it isn’t vegan, but I decided I’m a Chegan….a cheating vegan LOL!!!!! There are some meals I’m going to have regardless. But I’ve been doing pretty good with my vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. Thankfully Jim is very supportive. He cooks his own meals and I cook mine. Sometimes we can share a meal like spaghetti when I get my sauce out and then put meat or meatballs in his portion.
Oh, BTW, I found the very best spaghetti sauce IMHO. It’s Giada de Laurentii’s Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce available only at Target. It was highly recommended in a magazine I read and I tried it; oh, it is sooooo good and I highly recommend it. Before we came out here I bought four jars to keep on hand.
We bought a signal booster locally but it didn’t improve the signal much, so we took it back. Then we ordered another signal booster from amazon.com but it’s been backordered for two weeks so we still don’t have any cell or internet service. Every few days we come into Whitsett where we can get five bars on our MiFi. Hopefully, we’ll get a good signal once it’s installed.
Well that’s it for now, please leave comments or send emails. I miss hearing from everybody.
Remember, you are loved
