Bon Voyage!

Gary helped me with chores and around 10:30 he left for yoga and lunch.
Right after that the truck came to pick up the lift!  Yippppeeeee!

It was pretty chilly the high 50s and very windy.

The recent heat and rain got our lettuce going.

Topper stopped up after he, Gary and a bunch of their friends had lunch.  We gave him a bag of rhubarb.

At 4:30 Gary went down to watch Cooper's baseball game and I could not go as I had a chicken roasting and it was so big it would not be done in time.
At 6 I went out to tuck in the ponies,
gave them a whistle and they responded...always ready for dinner,

Our dinner was delicious.  Chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, peas and that orange jello salad from the old days....made with grated carrots and walnuts.  Chicken and biscuits and chicken salad are coming up.  Maybe some chicken soup.
Night all.

The Heart Monitor is On....

Rain at last.  Not the much, but we needed it.

This honkin' lift is still in our yard and we are not happy.  Hopefully it will be gone tomorrow.  It's been sitting there in all it's glory for a week after the barns were done.  What the heck?
These strawberry plants (two in pots and two in old watering cans) are going in our kitchen garden along with the big pot that's been there for the past few years (which has produced gigantic berries).  

A little before 10 I went down to Strong West (cardiology) to get a heart monitor put on.
I had visions of what that would mean and appreciated the simplicity of it all.  This will be on me for two days.  No wires.  Nothing else.  I can even take a shower. Will turn it in on Wednesday morning and have a meeting with the cardiologist on Thursday.  No restrictions on my activity....I just keep doing what I normally do.
My friend Carina posted a fabulous recipe the other day and it looked so good I got all the ingredients and tried it tonight.
Asparagus, onions, peppers and portabella mushrooms tossed in olive oil and spices....
 roasted in the oven at 375 degrees.
Turned it off at put in the tortillas before going out to do evening chores.

Served it with a side of corn.
I had made some guacamole and added salsa, sour cream and a little cheese.
Wrapped it up like a burrito and it was delicious!
Little Wonder preferred to stay in the house from morning chores until evening chores.  At least it was much cooler inside and out.  Tonight we will go down to the high 40s.
Night all.
