2012 November 08 Thursday: We went into Burnet (pronounced Burn-it) to the H.E.B. store for some groceries. We needed supplies for Ella to make chocolate chip cookies. I baked a large loaf of potato bread while the oven was still hot. The bread will be for the Shady Oaks potluck on Friday. I may bake another loaf for Sunday because there will be a potluck after church at the Highland Lakes UMC.
We will also be sharing the last of our homegrown tomatoes that we brought with us from Iowa. As you can see, nearly all of them have ripened. This is the last of several hundred tomatoes. And I am R E A L L Y glad to see them going.
While we were out I also purchased a couple of 12” landscape spikes. (I should have taken a picture of them before I drove them into the ground.) When we returned home, I used the spikes to nail our awning supports to the ground. That will make them a little more resistant to the wind.
2012 November 09 Friday: Today at the Men’s Coffee the subject of RV batteries came up. One of the guys was telling about someone who let his batteries go bad and it caused his inverter to overwork and fail. Since the batteries that we have in the Hitch Hiker are the ones I purchased at the same time as our RoadRanger 5th wheel six and a half years ago, I asked him to check my batteries with his tester. His volt meter is more high tech than most because it will do a static reading but it will also apply a load and read it that way. Both of the batteries tested marginal without a load and one tested bad and the other weak when a load was applied. Looks like something else to add to our shopping list.
We drove to WalMart in
to pick up Ella’s
prescriptions. We went one route and
came back a different way. Partly it was
to see which way was shorter. And partly
it was just to take a different route. And partly to prove to myself that I could
find my way their on a route that I hadn’t tried before! Marble
We had some low hanging clouds this morning. Ella comment on the fact that she had become so accustomed to the clear, bright blue skies that the clouds looked out of place. Oh how quickly we adapt.
