2018 November 08 Thursday in Liberty Hill Texas

50° and cloudy with fog. It only warmed to 57° with lots of mist and s little rain.

When I was at the VA Clinic last week the doctor made me promise to walk a mile each day. To make sure I keep that promise I bought a fitness tracker

One feature that I didn’t expect was a sleep timer. Plus it tracks deep or light sleep.

We attended Over The Hill Gang today. Four of us played Rummikub before lunch and then four of us played canasta after lunch. This will be our last time at OTHG until the new year. My Santa good at the mall starts tomorrow and Ella will be working on the set also.

Emery had a fifth grade music program tonight.

.

She had a lot of grandparents in attendance

God bless and g’nite y’all.

2018 November 07 Wednesday in Liberty Hill Texas

69° overcast and fog. It reached 85° with 100% humidity. Kinda sticky.

Grandies in the morning was a little light on people. It wasn’t surprising that there fog would keep some away. Even though it wasn’t bag where we were, some of the low spots in this hills can gather a dense fog.

Last week I replaced the headlights on Rudolf the red nosed pickup. Somehow managed to double order them. So today I returnef extra set of headlights.

I’ve been so busy putting the deck together that I forgot to take pictures. It is done. I will paint it and carpet the deck sometimes in the next few weeks if the weather allows.

Tonight was the choir monthly party and practice the Christmas cantata is coming along nicely. Ella and I are practicing it with the rest of them but we may not actually get to doing it with them on Christmas Eve. It depends on what time we get off work that night. It is surprising to me how many people wait until Christmas Eve to come and see Santa.

God bless and g’nite y’all.

2018 November 06 Tuesday in Liberty Hill and Leander, Texas

55° and heavy fog that lasted until late morning. It then became mostly overcast with a high of 75°. Another light fog or haze at bedtime.

This was our drive into Leander for games and lunch. Can you see the fourth power pole on the left? Neither can I.

It amazes me how quickly laundry day comes around. Maybe that’s due to the small clothes hamper in our fifth wheel.

God bless and g’nite y’all.

2018 November 05 Monday in Liberty Hill, Georgetown, and Burnet, Texas

It was a busy day. 99.9% done with the deck except paint and carpet.

Emmaus gathering at Hill Country Fellowship Church in Burnet this evening. We went to First United Methodist Church in Burnet first and then found the right place.

A very interesting mural in their gym

I could/should write more, but I’m tuckered out.

God bless and g’nite y’all.

2018 November 04 Sunday in Liberty Hill and Cedar Park, Texas

51° and 1/4″ of rain before sunrise. The clouds cleared out and it warmed to 68°.

Worship and Sunday school at Cross Tracks Church this morning.

I started some pork chops in the Instapot©, changed clothes and went out to work on the deck some more. Ella prepared the rest of the meal while I cut lumber and drove screws. After lunch I continued to do deck work until the cordless drill once again was powerless.

The Cherry Hill staff met at the Lakeline mall set this afternoon. It was just to introduce everyone. Ella and the other employees got their uniforms shirts. Charlie. (the 2nd shift Santa) and I unpacked our Santa suits and verified that everything was there and will fit. Come this Friday Santa Tom will be in the big chair and Ella will be getting on the job training.

No sunset photo today. It was cloudless which makes for boring pictures.

Well, that’s it for today.

God bless and g’nite y’all.

2018 November 03 Saturday in Liberty Hill, Georgetown, and Round Rock, Texas

50° and clear in the morning. It reached 73 windy degrees with some scattered clouds.

Grandson Tate had his last flag football game today 36-21 not in his team’s favor. I had left my cell phone in the truck, so didn’t get any game pictures.

Leigha posted a video. I hope this link works https://www.facebook.com/609172678/posts/10156807364652679/

So no more football until January. I was so proud of him today. On one play he was the designated receiver. However, a player on the other team knocked the ball down before he could catch it. Tate congratulated the other player for a great move. Now that is sportsmanship!

After the game we went to Adam and Leigha’s for pizza and conversation. We didn’t stay too long because I had a partially completed deck to work on at home. I didn’t manage to get it completely done after all. My cordless drill and I ran out of power at about the same time.

Nice sunset.

God bless and g’nite y’all.

2018 November 02Friday

2018 November 02 Friday in Liberty Hill, Bertram, Burnet, and Marble Falls, Texas

We arrived at the church around 9:30. Our Grandies group saves aluminum cans and people donate cans to us also. Several times a year we take them to Marble Falls for recycling. I should explain that Texas has no deposit and no return on soft drink Cans. The recyclers pay by the pound for the aluminum. We made $35.

However that is skipping ahead on the story. We had loaded Rudolf the red nosed pickup bed as full as it would go and still put the cover in place.

The cover is in two prices with each piece debited by four screws with wingnuts. Knowing that each of this screws would need to be removed at the recycling center, I decided that two each wires be enough

We hadn’t gone far before I realized that Rudolf was running on empty. I went to the nearest station and filled up. 25.336 gallons in a 25 gallon tank. I told you we were running on empty. Thank God that I noticed it when I did.

Because of the side trip to the gas station I changed the route we took. We had gone through Bertram when one of the plywood covers blew off of the truck. Obviously I was wrong that it didn’t need all of these screws holding it down. I pulled off to the side of the road and retrieved the cover and put it back in place with all of the screws.

After getting our cash at the recycling plant, we joined the rest of the grandies group at the Blue Bonnet cafe for lunch and pie.

After leaving the cafe we had time to return home before going to the VA Clinic in Cedar Park.

I was given a clean bill of health and a hug by my doctor. She also made me promise to walk a mile every day. She placed an order with the VA pharmacy for something that would help with the pain in my knees and the neuropathy in my feet.

After returning home, I worked some on building a deck.

God bless and g’nite y’all.
