LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Very nice. High 74
CLASSES: Chair yoga and 2 water aerobics
I felt lethargic in the AM and just could not make myself play pickleball. Perhaps my lack of energy was a reaction to the Covid vaccine. So, instead of pickleball, I enjoyed a class of yoga…..a good stretch.
When I got back home, I found George’s legs hanging from the ceiling. He was in the attic checking out the A/C system. It is a good thing he is thin, as he had to wriggle around pipes and boards. All looks good…..another check-off on our to-do list before we leave for the season.
He also made himself a tasty and nice-looking lunch — blue crab and avocado salad. It was a lot of work….this small amount of crab meat came from 3 blue crabs! We need to thaw the rest of the crabs before we go and pick the meat out, so we will have a small container of the crab (instead of the big bag of whole crabs hogging the freezer).
The lawn service are here whacking down dead branches from our shrubs. We can see some green popping through, so hopefully most will come back. I spoke to the lawn guy in Spanish saying “how sad” and he replied “that is a good word to describe this situation”.
Now that most people here in our Retama Village community have had both Covid shots, people are coming out more. The Friday night pot-luck grill/pot-luck get-togethers have been reinstated. We went up for the happy hour and had a nice time reconnecting with some friends. We didn’t stay for dinner, though, as I need to use up a lot of leftovers ASAP.
DINNER: George grilled a tuna steak – just perfectly – brown on the outside and pink in the center. Sides were okra and rice.
