Only 4 of us ventured out to play pickleball.  The winds were gale-force!  The ball never went in the direction it was supposed to go.

George started painting the house.  The paint color is called Pewter Tankard….kind of a blend between gray, beige, and sage green.  In this photo, you can see the old paint (what we fondly called Baby Shit Brown)  and the new…

Here is George at work.  You can see our neighbor’s bougainvillea bush that they are chopping down.

We did our biweekly trip to the supermarket.  Whenever we go together, I give George a list of about 5 things to get.  Invariably, he picks up more than he is supposed to.  Such was the case today.  Without constant supervision, he bought some frozen blue crab, raw oysters, a huge bag of clementines, and a lot of other fruit.  He is now in the dog house, as I am trying to pare down our supplies before we hit the road.  With the food we received yesterday from Imperfect Foods plus his shopping today, we have an overstuffed freezer,  refrigerator, and countertop!

DINNER:  I made gumbo with shrimp and sausage.  George added a crab to his bowl.  It was a big serving!  It turned out well.
