It has been hard to get on my blog since I posted about David Bone and Andrew Child’s accident. There have been hundreds of inquiries for each man, many from this area, but most coming from Texas inquiring about Bone and from various Air Force bases inquiring about Child. They have found the link to the accident report helpful for ascertaining the correct information surrounding the collision. It was tragic.
It’s 106 degrees with the heat index of 110 and climbing. It’s already hotter than the projected high and the hottest part of the day is a couple of hours away. Tomorrow is supposed to be slightly cooler with a possibility of rain. How glorious a good rain would be. In other weather related news, wheat prices shot up today.
Daughter Ally is on her way home from Boulder where she spent the weekend with her ‘phew, Drew. They had a great time together, played a couple rounds of golf at Coal Creek and enjoyed some good food. I hope the AC in her car holds up coming home as it didn’t the last time she made this trip. She was whipped from the 102 heat and it showed. It’s just not good to be outside for long stretches in this heat.
I’m having stew tonight for dinner. Yeah, yeah, I know….why would I want it in this weather? Well, I’m tired of eating cold stuff that falls out of the refrigerator and freezer. Something out of a crock pot sounded good. I cut into chunks and browned a small roast and have it simmering in the crock pot with onion, garlic and lots of seasonings. Later I’ll add all the veggies I have from the 3C’s gardens….Claudia, Cathy, and Caleb. That would include: carrots, potatoes, okra, broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes, banana peppers, jalapeno, and onions. With some crusty bread on the side, it will be good. A plate of veggies is always a good thing, hot or cold.
Tyler should be heading to Ellsworth one of these days. He doesn’t know when that will be so we don’t know and can’t plan. I’ll just get up some morning….or turn around in my chair…and there he’ll be with a big grin on his face. He loves to surprise me. It makes me smile.
Mackenzie has started her second week working as a computer engineering contractor for Rockwell Collins in Richardson. She loves her job and the people and will soon be living five minutes from her work. The one-hour commute each way now makes for a long day. It seems everyone is our family shuffling around where they live…but that’s okay with me. I still know how to find them.
Thanks for tuning in…
