Blairsville, Georgia (high 72, low 43)
We stuck around home all day yesterday, only leaving for a walk and a golf cart ride. It alternated between sunshine and cloudiness all day long.
Al puttered around home all day, watching a little football in between doing projects outside. He got our new porch light installed on the cabin. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. Operator error, or faulty light? He’ll have to check it out today.
I did something that is very, very rare for me. I cooked with a real recipe! Actually, I made two different things. All in one day. Most of what I cook are just things that you put together with just a few ingredients. No real recipes. I’m not much of a cook and I don’t usually enjoy it. I really need to try new recipes, because we’re getting tired of eating the same things and we’ve been eating out (non-vegan) much too often.
I bought a new vegan cook-book and I tried a new recipe for black bean soup. Normally, I just buy it in a can. This one was much better. It had black beans, diced tomatoes, onions, garlic, carrots, cayenne pepper, cumin. It turned out very flavorful and delicious. Then I found another recipe for red cabbage cooked in a crock pot. The recipe called for cabbage, apples, onions,brown sugar and apple cider vinegar. It was kind of sweet/sour and we both liked it. We added baked sweet potatoes and had a good dinner.
A big weather front was slowly moving towards us all day long, which was supposed to bring heavy rains. Fortunately, the tornado threat they had the day before had gone down and it looked like we would just get the rain.
The rains didn’t start until about 7 pm, while we were in the hot tub. It rained pretty hard off and on all night, but nothing severe, and I never heard any thunder or saw any lightning. Just the way I like it!
The sun is trying to come out, so it looks like it will be a nice day, but it will be cold tonight as the cold front arrives. Our expected low it supposed to be 43 degrees tonight. I imagine, it will be colder than that. That’s pretty cold for us Floridians, so the electric blankets will definitely go on tonight!
Unfortunately, our extra propane tanks are in Florida, so I guess we’ll be buying spare another tank. UF-DAH…as Judy would say!
The two propane companies here don’t fill motor homes, “for safety reasons.” We get our propane tank filled all the time in other places, so we don’t understand their rules here. I wonder if they just want you to get one of their big tanks installed?
Our tenant in our other RV lot is enjoying his stay, so he has decided to at least stay until the end of October, and possibly through November. He’s also thinking about coming back in the spring and sounds like he may be considering a semi-permanent deal. Good for us, if he does. He’s a nice guy, so we’d be happy to have him stay. He’s trying to get his home-body wife away from the house, and so far she’s enjoying it.
Tomorrow we’ll be meeting some fellow bloggers. Nothing exciting planned for today. At least not yet.
