2019 February 05 Tuesday in Liberty Hill, Texas

45° and mostly cloudy at the start. By mid day It was 74 outsideand 79 inside. At that point I started the air conditioner.

It was a stay at home and do nothing day. Well that’s not quite true. I attempted to install a lock on our shed. I’m not inept with tools. Having said that, I was not able to put eight tiny screws into the two parts of the lock set. I will try again later.

Tuesday night prayer meeting was a great way to fin end the day.

G’night and God bless.

2019 February 03 Sunday in Liberty Hill, Texas

58° and still completely overcast. The clouds started breaking apart in the mid afternoon. It reached 73° around 3 p.m.

Sunday was a good Sabbath for us. We attended church where we heard pastor Saint’s sermon “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin” (based on Adam Hamilton’s book, “Half Truths.”

We sang in the choir. Then had a good discussion (even though out wandered off topic) in Sunday school.

Afterward we went to subway for lunch. We came home and napped away most of the afternoon.

It was 81° in the livingroom from the afternoon sun streaming through the windows. I closed the curtains, opened the door and several roof vents to cool it a bit. It got down to 77 but then started climbing again. So I closed the door and started the air conditioner. By the way, I’m glad that our family and friends up North are above freezing today.

Another peaceful day in paradise. We played several rounds of Rummikube.

G’night and God bless.

2019 February 04 Monday in Liberty Hill and Leander, Texas

61° and partly to mostly cloudy. It reached 73 today, There was a little color in the sky this morning and at sunset the sky was ablaze.

I made hashbrowns and biscuits for breakfast. I guess I was hungry.

Ella had her last physical therapy at home today. From now on (starting Wednesday) she Will need to go to the therapist in Liberty Hill.

We also went to the laundromat and took care of our dirty clothes.

Around 4:30 the sky looked like this.

I made a brief stop at Winkley’s hardware for some tools. Saturday the handle for the RV’s blackwater dump valve broke. I ordered from Amazon and itt arrived today. I needed a channellock tio remove the stub of a handle before installing the newhandle.

Here is that Sunset is mentioned earlier.

G’night and God bless.

55° and fog. I can hear traffic on the road just zipping right along dispite boot being able to see what’s ahead. The adult version of the “Bird Box Challenge”. Remarkably It reached 71° without the sun ever making an appearance. There was drizzle off and on.

Happy sunrise … it’s got to be there somewhere.

Ella had prescriptions to pick up. When we arrived, the pharmacy had just closed closed for their hour lunch break.

Sunset looks much like sunrise today.

Another slow day in the life. No news is good news.

G’night and God bless.

2019 February 01 Friday in Liberty Hill, Texas

53° and that overcast sky from yesterday is still here.

Bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast around 10:30. Ella was having a hard time getting up this morning. No, it was not a physical impairment. More of a lack or desire. She was tired.

There were a few essentials that we needed and a few things they we wanted. So off to Wal-Mart we went.

When we were done at Wally World I made a stop at the Verizon store. I had received an email from Verizon stateing that they were sending a replacement HUM device to replace the one we have which is not working. However, there is a problem. They shipped it to a UPS Store address that we haven’t used in 5 or 6 years. There is nothing that can be done to reroute the package but I made sure that that now have the correct shipping address. The strange thing is we have correctly received shipments to our proper address, from Verizon in the past few years.

Now, I’ve been trying to call the UPS store and I haven’t gotten through the automated (press 1 for this and 2 for that) phone system. I found an email for the store and sent an email explaining what had happened and asking for their help.

One of the items that we were not able to find at Wal-Mart was a spill proof cup. Ella said that she’s knew H.E.B. carried them. So we stopped there. I went in and found a cup identical to the broken one.

As I was returning to the truck I saw Judy, one of our friends. We don’t see much of her now because she moved to Menard, Texas which is over 2 hours away. While talking to her, Charlotte, another friend pulled into a parking spot right in front of us.

We were both strangely tired when we arrived home. Ella dropped her recliner down and went to sleep almost immediately. I was watching a YouTube video on primitive technology … and woke an hour and a half later.

After supper we played a few games of Fast Track.

Soon it was bedtime. Which means It was time to finish this and post the blog.

G’night and God bless.

2019 January 31 Thursday in Liberty Hill, Texas

Ain’t nothin’ but grey sky. No sun to be seen.

The day started with a cold drizzle. Fortunately at 42° it was well above freezing. Today toppled out at 49° while still under grey skies.

Thursday is Over the Hill Gang in Liberty Hill. It was “hat day” but very few remembered to wear one.

We had a good sized crowd today at 59 for lunch.

Unfortunately the only thing on the menu that didn’t have onion was the pinto beans and the desserts. The beans would have been better with some ham.

We stopped at “Mom’s”* on the way home. She had made another peach cobbler for us. It was for ME. I know that she intended it to all be mine. Mine! Mine!

2 o’clock in the afternoon looked just like 6:30 in the morning or 6:30 in the evening.

Ellas physical therapist came this afternoon. He was pleased with her progress. He plans to schedule her for 2 more visits before she goes for therapy at the office in Liberty Hill on Wednesday.

2019 January 30 Wednesday in Liberty Hill, Texas

The day started at 32° and hit 53° for a very brief moment before the sky turned a uniform gray. This was sunrise.

Today was Grandies in the morning. After that we stopped at the post office and got an arm load of mail.

Ella had to go to the physical therapy office to get registered for when she no longer qualifies for home visits. Wow, not only can you legally be tortured but they make you pay for it.

With that done we went to Jardin Corona for lunch. With my severe allergy to onions I must be very careful of what I eat. So why would I even consider going to a Mexican restaurant? Because my bride wanted enchiladas. As long I didn’t eat the salsa, guacamole, or salad, I was alright with the steak.

The afternoon was quiet. We napped. We read. We watched TV. We played games.

Wednesday night is choir practice at Cross Tracks Church. Ella was feeling okay enough, so we went to practice. I really enjoy choir and I actually love the practice more than the performance. Practice is about learning and sharpening a skill. That means more to me than the presentation. I’m not a great singer and I don’t really read music. But I know I can add something because I can hit the deep bass notes that the others aren’t able to do.
