LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Mostly cloudy. High 82
CLASSES: 2 line-dancing and 2 water aerobics
I really enjoy line-dancing classes. There are a few dances that we all know quite well, and it is fun to do a nice job together. And there are others – tricky ones and ones that are new to us. I think it is a good excercise – both physically and mentally.
Yesterday, when it was sunny and hot, there were a lot of ladies doing water aerobics. Today, cloudy and breezy, there were only the 3 “strong” core of us.
I had to do more laundry today – getting Joy’s bedding, etc ready for our upcoming trip. By the time 5:00 rolled around, I was pooped!
We had a special happy hour. First we made Aperol Spritzes. This is a drink we enjoyed when we were in Venice. The flavor brought back fond memories. It is aperol, prosecco, and selzer water. Here is George popping the prosecco…
It was worth the effort!
Then, we had some delicious oysters on the half shell with the rest of the prosecco
DINNER:. Pumpkin soup. Seems a little strange, but I am trying to finish up the recipes from the Jacques Pepin cookbook. I used baked butternut squash instead of canned pumpkin puree. I topped with roasted walnuts. Side was sauteed zucchini, since we have a lot of zucchini from our Imperfect Food shipment.
