LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Another beauty. Sunny. High 80
We are trying to walk at least 10,000 steps daily. We started the day with a 3-mile walk around the fields surrounding our community. The road is pretty desolate, and is a popular place for illegals to cross. We encountered a lot of Border Patrol vehicles. If we continue to do this hike all winter, we will probably see a lot of progress on the Wall. Ugh!
Each day it seems that another Winter Texan moves back. The community is getting more lively, but there are several lots that will remain vacant, due to the inability/desire of the Canadians to return here this season. We will miss them!
Now that we have passed our quarantine period, I returned to water aerobics. It was great to be back! There are 6-8 regular swimmers. We cannot exceed 10 in the pool at any time, due to Covid restrictions. The pool is pretty large, so we can safely spread out. My plan is to do 2 classes per day.
I finally finished all the laundry from the summer trip. Today was the last quilt that we used when we experienced some cold weather.
I made some broth from the bones and fat from yesterday’s smoked brisket. The smell flooded our house and was so enticing. It made my stomach growl!
DINNER: Mahi mahi. Since the pieces were fairly small, we cooked them in the iron skillet on the gas grill. Sides were salad and Japanese soba noodles. We paired this with hot, Japanese sake.
This is half of the package of mahi mahi. The package will make 4 meals (8 servings) – for $5.00! A bit gourmet at a good price.
