LOCATION: In our tiny house in Retama Village, in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Another scorcher. Sunny. High 98
Today I joined an online yoga class taught by the instructor who taught here in Retama BC (Before Coronavirus). I did the class via zoom. The teacher is bilingual and some of the other online students are Spanish-speaking, so she went back and forth between English and Spanish. Really cute and interesting.
After yoga was 2 classes of water aerobics, so I was pretty whipped. I also did laundry at the clubhouse, so made several back and forth walks in the blazing sun. A good work-out day!
There wasn’t too much work accomplished on the lot behind us today. They delivered a load of batterboards that will frame the forms for pouring concrete.
DINNER: I used up some more of the special morel mushrooms our daughter had sent us. Based on a recommendation from my cooking guru brother, I served them sauteed in a bed of buttery pasta. Excellent! Sides were a romaine salad with surprisingly good tomatoes (often hard to find) and steamed peas.
BOOK: “Bertie Plays the Blues” by Allistair McCall Smith. This is the author that wrote the African lady detective series. Now back in his Scotland home, he has written a series of books about life in Edinburgh. The books are actually a collection of his newspaper stories. I feel like my vocabulary, punctuation, and grammar improve after I absorb some of his impeccable English writing…with a touch of Scottish. 5 stars out of 5.
