This week has gone by quickly.
Yesterday, we spent 3 hours looking at small ultra light rvs. We liked the Coleman again as we did last year. And we liked 2 others. Then we came home and talked about them. WE weren’t sure about the Coleman for a few reasons and we both seemed undecided. It’s a big decision so I guess were hesitant. We’ve had our Coleman tent trailer 17 years and I guess we’ve always liked the space that the pop outs give you. But I really want a bathroom in the trailer. We do BTW, have a porta potty so you know…. Anyway, then we started looking at the hybrids that the sleeping area pops out like a tent trailer but the living space is huge. So, it’s more than I thought we’d spend but since this is the last trailer we I’ll get, I want to be sure we love it. Plus, the Santa Fe can only tow up to 5000lbs. So, we’ll keep processing.
Yesterday I had another eye check up with my regular eye doctor. He took another scan and the macular pucker was still the same. So, for now, I will just continue to monitor it.
I made this amazing beet raspberry soap. It’s a recipe from the New Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas. It’s a cold soup and is only a few ingredients including a pint of raspberries. I grew up on Borscht and love it so this is a cold Borscht soup. Basically, cook the beets ( I used one bunch from the farmers market) till tender @ 45 minutes, then in a blender add the onion 1/4 of red, lemon juice 2 tbsp or so, then the cooled beets and a pint of raspberries. She said strain then and serve but I didn’t strain and it was fine. A dollop of sour cream and yum.
To have with this, I made a wild rice salad with green onions from the garden, a few small chunks of cheddar and it seems some thing else but I can’t remember.
Tonight, the family is going to see the Batman movie (an oldie) at the theatre so I’m just putting together some sandwiches. Veggie bacon tomato and avocado. I made some regular bacon for the meat eaters. I’m sticking with the Morningstar strips.
I’ve been watching Janet King on Amazon prime. It’s quite excellent if you’re looking for a new series to watch.
I went out to the barn and worked on the new shelf area. I got rid of enough Life magazines to empty 1/2 bin. Hurray, it’s getting there. I also put a few things of my sons in a bin since when he’s in SF he won’t need them. Then, I’m going to have a huge load to go to the thrift store. Books to the SPCA bookstore, and just stuff to Goodwill.
We also dropped off 6 boxes of food for the food bank over in our little town of Applegate. It serves a wide area and isn’t the Salvation Army food bank. They never bring Jesus into the picture and as an atheist, I appreciate that. But they do good work for those that need food. I appreciate that they provide this service for anyone who needs it. So for me, religion doesn’t come into the picture.
