LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Very nice once again. Sunny. High 78. Low humidity, so we didn’t need to turn on A/C
We spent the early morning glued to the TV to see what the election results are. Still must wait….
I sent out some Facebook posts asking for recommendations. In a few years, we will probably want to travel in Joy, our Airstream, less, but still continue to enjoy her. So, I am researching communities like where we live in South Texas, but in the North. The idea would be to spend some time here in Texas in the winter, some time in another community in the summer, then travel in the spring and fall. Some FB friends are responding. It will be fun to go visit these recommended places one day. I also sent out a request for recommendations for next summer’s road trip. In addition to traveling with our Nova Scotia friends (a big HOPE), we want to spent some time in Michigan. I’m collecting ideas for places to visit/stay there, too.

George had cut his own hair a few weeks ago, shaving the bottom part and leaving the top scraggly and chopped-off looking. So, today he visited Roosters.
Here are the “before” photos. Kind of scary…..
And here he is, after the hair cut, back to his handsome self….

DINNER: Using the red quinoa a neighbor gave me, I made a quinoa and black bean dish. It was really good, and easy to make. We try to have meatless meals at least once a week. Here is the recipe….
