Grimes, IA at 10:23 a.m.
I awoke around seven this morning and was disoriented because the lights were on. I soon realized that the lights were not on and that it was just a bright morning.
It’s been a while since I’ve slept until it was that bright out. It had not yet reached sunrise but with the snow on the ground and the fog in the air, everything had an even brightness to it. There was no visible change when the astrological sunrise occurred.
I prepared breakfast in the electric George Forman Grill. This grill has interchangeable plates, one of which is a shallow ‘pan’. I mixed up an omelet with ¼ cup of water, a heaping tablespoon of pancake mix and four eggs. To this I added sliced mushrooms, crisp bacon and shredded cheese (
jack and cheddar). I was going to add
dice tomatoes but didn’t get around to it. Monterey
The reason I didn’t get around to adding the tomatoes was because I realized that I had bumped the faucet lever and had left a trickle of water running onto the counter top. So, in the middle of fixing the omelet, I was also quickly moving things off of the counter and sopping up water.
I just realized that I should have taken a photo of the omelet and sent it to my son Adam for his blog, “Adam DoesFood Porn”. (it has everything to do with food and nothing to do with porn, so don’t ask me why it is named that.)
We have nothing much on the schedule for today. Ella is now up and has eaten her omelet, so we will be going to WalMart to pick up her prescription eye drops. The drops are in preparation for her first cataract surgery this coming Monday.
I have the Bible Study at Emeritus at one thirty and then nothing else scheduled for today. As you can see from the forecast, it doesn’t look like a good week for outdoor activities.
