Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.
Time to rise! The bat-phone rings and it is Lisa C. We have been lax the last few weeks in talking to each other so we made up for it. Biggest news..her Prius finally died after 300,000 miles! She and Pete got a brand new Prius with all the bells and whistles and they are quite happy.
We worked in the latest puzzle which we thought would be easy…not so much!
Christmas in Cologne is a 300 piece jigsaw puzzle designed by artist Barbara Behr. The department store is lit for Christmas as shoppers fill the streets. Angels fill the sky as children and families watch as a hot air balloon descends wishing all A Merry Christmas.
I hit the road again but today only for an hour and that was good for the second day in a row!
The flowers are still quite pretty even though the weather has turned war…no, hot! We have the pool heater on so I also take a swim on the afternoon and it is working…214 this morning! Yeah!
I listened to Rush and Dr. Laura, mu two favorite radio personalities. They were both on a roll this morning!
After getting home, we ate and I went for good old bacon, sausage, and eggs plus I prepared some beef bacon also. I was protein rich today and only about 700 calories!
In the afternoon I got a craving for corn soup and being blessed with a fantastic cook as my wife and best friend, we went to work. I took the kernels off of six ears of corn while she did the onions and spices and other secret ingredients. We cooked it for a while using half-and-half and it came out beautiful. When we tasted it, I wanted just a tad more salt.
Sue, thinking salt was boring, went to the panty and rustled around coming up with a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. What a great idea…it was deposited carefully into the soup and after a few more minutes of simmering we had the best corn soup I had ever tasted!
We messed around the house the rest of the day resting up for a big day tomorrow. We are off to Temecula to visit my second cousin, Paul David Mall…he was named Paul david after litle ol’ me!
Tookies at 10:00 PM and bed at 11:00 PM!
