LOCATION: In our tiny house in Retama Village, in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Cooler – only 99! Heavy rains in the PM for a short time
It is interesting to watch the men working on the foundation of the house behind us. They are prepping to pour the cement.
We are getting closer to our departure. I have lots of to-do lists and schedules. Today George plugged in the refrigerator in the Airstream. We just hope it works ok. We will check it out tomorrow. I made arrangements with a lady to pick up our mail while we are gone. We have a mail-forwarding service with a South Dakota address, but still get a bit of mail here – mostly junk. We just don’t want our mailbox to fill up. This lady provides this service to a lot of residents here over the summer.
The highlight of the day was a happy hour outing. We went to our favorite restaurant, Loreto’s. We went with two other couples – ladies who swim and do chair yoga regularly with me. We had a lovely time. It is fun to get dressed up, as I have been “living” in raggedy t-shirts and baggy shorts during the lockdown.
The bistro was offering half-priced wines so we shared a few bottles along with some tasty flatbreads.
We sat inside due to the heat and rain. When the rain stopped, we got a nice photo of the patio…
DINNER: Since we ate the flatbreads, we were not all that hungry. I had thawed some shrimp for dinner, so just boiled them up and we had shrimp cocktail.
