8 July: Wednesday

Indio, California: Another busy day. Not sure how much longer I will be able to update this website DAILY with nothing but photos of food. 115th dinner served at home (in a row) tonight.

Our exciting daily new house adventure was having the garage doors reprogrammed. Ya know, just in case the past owner, who lives in a different country, wanted to come down and rob our garage? A tech came out and did all the work in the garage (while wearing a mask and gloves), without our presence, and I was able to program the built-in opener in my car myownself (as I did four years ago when we first purchased the Jeep).

I am happy to report the house was cool when we arrived today. The NEST app is working!

It was a treat to return to our bus early enough in the afternoon to actually relax for a while. Since we were having only salad for dinner, I made a heavier appetizer - again, broiled Gruyere toasts, this time with lots of cracked black pepper. (Obviously broiled in the outdoor oven.)

Nothing not to like about crunchy and gooey in one bite. The salad was the remainder of items from the CSA box:  lettuce mix, micro-greens, cucumbers - plus tomatoes, red onion, Kalamata olives, and hearts of palm. All these wonderful fresh things were tossed with a can of Oregon Albacore and dressed in a lemony vinaigrette. No photos. Forgot.

After dinner, I sat outside talking with Brother Rick. He is fly fishing on the Madison River, not far from Yellowstone. He was enjoying a beautiful evening sky, and I was as well. Together, yet so far away from each other.

Until my next update, I remain, your sisterly correspondent.

  1. Thank you for the last 115 days. I wanted you to know how much I have appreciated your blog. I have been a reader for many years. You have helped me cope with this day to day struggle to stay at home, listen and apply good advice to control the virus. I am enjoying your new house adventures and hope you will share more.

  2. Do so enjoy your daily posts. Helps to know others are trying to find something different and delicious to fix for dinner. Like you, I’ve never cooked so many meals for so many days in a row. Also short on ideas.

  3. You provide such a humorous lift to our boring, repetitive days. I sincerely hope you continue to find the time to share with us as you move into and decorate the new house. Eager to see what comes out of your new kitchen!
