LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Winter is over! Sunny. High 78
We enjoyed our traditional Sunday morning routine – grits and eggs while watching CBS Sunday Morning.
My other tradition on Sundays is to be a real slouch. I didn’t take a walk, and it was too windy for pickleball. I spent a lot of time reading while munching on popcorn. I also worked some more on summer camping. I am not going to make any more reservations/plans until we know about Canada and Europe. We just learned that Canada extended its border closure through the end of March, so that is not a good sign.
While I was doing that, George and some friends went to our local brewery. They enjoyed beers and some live music on the brewery’s outdoor patio.
I am seriously getting ready for summer camping…..Throughout the year, we save toilet paper rolls and dryer lint. I make firestarters for campfires by stuffing the lint into the rolls, then adding a dab of Vaseline. We have been saving a BUNCH of toilet paper rolls, so I made the firestarters this afternoon. We have a summer’s worth now. So – Let’s go camping!
George tried to get the grill going for dinner, but the wind was so strong that the fire kept going out. A few hours later, our appetizers – stuffed jalapenos wrapped with bacon – were ready…
DINNER: Grilled flank steak. George did it perfectly, even with the challenges. Side was a lentil dish that I found online to use up some of the mint I had from a previous recipe. It was very tasty – and vegan (Alexis). Sort of like a tabloulleh.
BOOK: “I’ll Keep You Safe” by Peter May. Our Nova Scotia friends recommended this author. I am hooked. This is a bit of a mystery/love story, but the greatest part is the description of the scenery. This one takes place on a small Island off Scotland.
