2019 April 06 Saturday in Liberty Hill, Texas

66° and cloudy but it looks like we may have dodged the bullet. Yesterday they were predicting high wind and hail for us this morning.

We received rain, thunder and lightning ends as under a tornado watch area until early evening.

Pene with homemade meat sauce.

Grandson Tate had a football game today. We didn’t go, assuming they it would be cancelled because of the rain and lightening. Evidently, it didn’t storm where they were, about 30 miles southeast from here.

While we were eating lunch, Adam called to say that Tate’s team won 24 to 0. This is their second game and they are 2 & 0. We were invited to go over and spend the afternoon.

This photo doesn’t really show how hard it was to see through the rain.

We were on Ronald Reagan bulkhead when suddenly there were barricades blocking the road. I had to drive all the way back to 183 and then over to 1431. It turned a 20 mile drive into a 40 mile drive. Three red line on this map it’s the alternate route.

Later we got the news report that there had been a fatal crash on the road.

Once we arrived at Adam and Leigha’s we had a nice visit and played a game of Fast Track with Adam and the kids.

The storm ended and the sunn came out for a while. We came home before 5.

As we were getting out of the truck our neighbor came over and askeded to borrow my jumper cables. Then later came and all for my help th3o open the battery box on his. trailor.

Before bed I placed a frozen brisket in the crockpot on low. I don’t have a smoker so the crockpot will have to do.

G’night and God bless.

2019 April 05 Friday in Liberty Hill, and Marble Falls, Texas

58° and foggy and remained overcast nearly all day.

We took a pickup load of aluminum cans to Hill County Recycling in Marble Falls today.

In a combined service project and fund raiser, the Grandies group collects aluminum cans and then twice a year takes them to be recycled. For those in other states, Texas doesn’t have a can/bottle deposit/redemtion law. So we kept a pickup load of cans out of the trash and earned us a whopping $17.10 to use toward Grandies ministries.

But now for the alternative reason to go to Marble Falls, PIE!

Okay, now the third reason, time with friends.

A huge ball of fire slowly crashed to earth and set the horizon on fire! Oh wait … this just in … it was the sun.

G’night and God bless.

2019 April 04 Thursday in Liberty Hill, Texas

61° and partly cloudy this morning. That cleared up and reached 90°. Which maybe a record. And the answer is, yes we had the air conditioning on.

A jet makes a single slash across the morning sky.

We spent the late morning through 2:30 asst the Over the Hill Gang.

Ella had therapy from 3 to 4.

I crumpled and cooked about 5 pounds of hamburger then portioned it out into 5 Ziploc bags and froze them.

I didn’t get a sunset photo tonight simply because I forgot to look out the window.

If this seems to be a boring post, imagine what it is to live it.

G’night and God bless.

2019 April 03 were Wednesday

2019 April 03 Wednesday in Liberty Hill, Texas

It started out at 53° under this overcast sky and topped out at 66° under the same overcast sky and was still at 63° at 10 p.m. with foggy mist.

Around 9 a.m. we arrived at the fellowship hall at Cross Tracks Church where our Grandies group meets every Wednesday.

One of the most important (in my opinion) parts of our meeting is our rollcall. It is how we stay connected with each other as we share our joys and concerns over the past week and near future events. This was also the week that we celebrate birthday birthdaysand anniversaries for the month. Of course we also played games after the official part its the meeting was over.

Once we were home, I dipped into our 4Patriots food supply and made some Farmers Market Corn Chowder. This is part of my continued testing of their emergency 3 month food supply. The soup was good though with a little more blank pepper than I put on my home made chowder.

In the evening Ella and I returned to the church for choir practice. This was also the day that we celebrated choir members birthdays and anniversaries with a communal meal.

Then we rehearsed music for the next few weeks. Choir is one of the things I’ll miss most over the next four or five months when we go back to Iowa for the summer.

No sunset and no photo this evening.

G’night and God bless.

2019 April 02 Tuesday in Georgetown and Liberty Hill, Texas

39° and mostly clear all day which helped it reach 70°.

There weren’t many people at the senior center door lunch today.

The sun was low in the west and glowing in these windows as we started our weekly prayer meeting in the chaple.

G’night and God bless.

2019 April 01 Monday in Georgetown and Liberty Hill, Texas

37° and mostly cloudy in the morning which is only 5° warmer than at our summer home in Grimes, Iowa. Is the weather playing an April Fools joke on us?

It was games and lunch at the Georgetown senior center

Then we stopped at our orthopedic surgeons to make the final payment for Ella’s shoulder and to make an appointment for me to get steroid injections in my knees.

Then, believe it our not, we had to return to Wal-Mart … AGAIN. Seriously, we had a good reason. Ella had another prescription at the pharmacy PLUS we were purchasing some items for a new ministry at Cross Tracks Church. From time to time homeless people or families come seeking food. Most of the time we refer then to Operation Liberty Hill, which the church supports. However, there are times when OLH is closed and the people are in need now. Our various Sunday school classes are purchasing items for the pastor to hand out to folks in need.

G’night and God bless.

2019 March 31 Sunday in Liberty Hill, Texas

40° and cloudy in the morning. And 56 was the high.

This is the sky half an hour after time for sunrise.

And this other photo was taken around 11

Normally Cross Tracks Church has two worship services on Sunday morning: a nine o’clock traditional and an eleven o’clock contemporary with Sunday school at ten. Four times a year there are five Sundays in a month. When those fifth Sundays occur we have a combined service at eleven that is a mix of traditional and contemporary. And then we have a potluck after worship. This was the fifth Sunday in March.

If you are interested in the service you can follow the link below

The overcast sky gave way to pure sunshine around 2:30.

And as the sun slowly sat in the west the temperature began to drop into the 40s.

G’night and God bless.
