Yesterday, I caught up with my sleep. This morning we got up to alarm clocks and went to the pistol range early for target practice, and then came home. I caught up on sleep, and then made lunch&emdash; baked chicken breast and leftover rice reheated and mixed with salsa. For dessert, yogurt from the batch that I put in Saturday night, just to make sure that it came out properly. I think that I will wait another half an hour before having another five-ounce serving with a tablespoon of rhubarb-raspberry (or rhubarb-strawberry) preserves on top of it.


It's still too hot and humid outside for it to be livable. The weather forecast calls for Sunday to be really nice. I think that means it'll be 10 degrees warmer.

Sunrise and flowers

We had a bit of rain on Friday night, but generally it's been a nice weekend. Sunrise was quite colorful, this morning, so after Samantha and I came back inside, I took some photos from the front steps. And then went back to bed for a few more hours, when I needed to get the yogurt out of the incubator.

Still no contractors in sight. I do hope that they will get the necessary work done in time to avoid getting more rain in the basement. I'm certain that the leakage is in the window casements. In the meantime, the recliner in my office is comfortable, and the central air is keeping the house cool.

I will be so happy when there once more is snow on the ground.

Some pictures, 7, 6, & 5 August 2015

A few photographs from this week. Sorry for the absences... allergies. Sleeping a lot and dreaming of a cold, white winter with lots and lots of snow!

Morning's Light

P7280958

The morning was . . . short. As in, I was two hours late in decanting the Toddy coffee. I hope that it will taste okay. This morning, I finished the remainders of the last batch. The yogurt, which I also have not sampled, went into the refrigerator a little after midnight. I'd unplugged the electronics because of the threat of severe weather in the early morning hours. I'm more nervous about the wind advisor for later in the day, though. Already there are no flowers to photograph.

Breakfast was very good! I made a two-egg omelet with Swiss cheese and the last of the salsa. I also finished off the Motts 100% vegetable juice, along with hot Toddy coffee made with half & half.

I still don't feel as though I have had enough sleep, so I am going to try for an afternoon nap.

The afternoon sky

Aside from heat and humidity, the day was quite beautiful. Samantha wanted to spend a lot of time outside, and so I took many photographs. We had a lot of fun.

I finally got a good picture of the bird that has been watching me from the top of the cottonwood tree across the back fence, as I take pictures of wildflowers and leaves.

Day Trip to Itasca State Park

My sister writermom, her daughter Abigail, and I took a day trip to Itasca State Park in northern Minnesota on July 1 while they were in town on vacation to visit with pat_berry, Dad, and friends. They invited me to come with them to visit Itasca State Park, which I hadn't seen, I think, since before I'd left home for college.

We had a lovely lunch in the restaurant there after visiting the headwaters of the Mississippi. Abigail and I waded across the Mississippi and back again. Memories! I think that on one of my previous visits there, the water was low enough that I could stand with a foot on each riverbank.

I had my camera along and could not resist taking photographs--too many to include here, but there are some more after the cut. I may, perhaps, put more on my photo/misc. WordPress account, but not today. (themomentsbetween).
