LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Another good one. Sunny. High 80
While we are in South Texas, I am going to try to walk at least 10,000 steps per day and do two classes of water aerobics. I think I will forego chair yoga as I would have to wear a mask, and the class’s time interferes with the early morning walk. From time to time, I will do a yoga class at home, following a DVD I have. Today was successful with this excercise commitment – 13,109 steps and 2 water aerobics classes.
We made an outing today, something I always look forward to. We went to a new liquor store, called Specs. It is quite large, and has a lot of merchandise.. We bought margarita fixings – tequila and triple sec, and George bought 3 kinds of beer – a variety back of Belgians and 6-packs of IPAs and Oktoberfest.
We were invited to some friends’ house to watch our new President speak to the country. It was an excellent speech filled with hope and a desire to reunite our country. I hope he can deliver on his promises, and we can begin to heal as a country. We all did a lot of cheering and clapping and shared a bottle of champagne.
DINNER: Gumbo. I sauteed onion, green bell pepper, and garlic. Then I added okra, bits of leftover pork, and shrimp. I added some Cajun herbs and served over steamed rice. Last year, we signed up for a Cajun RV festival – music and Cajun food in Louisiana but it was canceled due to Covid. We hope we can do it next April.
