A Working Monday

Well, I can put this up today but wonder if I will have readers? Blogger has not been working correctly for a day or two. They said some months ago, if I would use Chrome there would be no problem. That has not been true. Does anyone know, does Word Press have fewer problems?

Today the temps are low and the skies are almost as low, heavy with greyness. The temps are moderate with humidity so sticky I feel like I am sitting in a frosted cinnamon roll. Flies are abundant. But with the cooler temps and a sale at the tree shop, it was time to get serious about replacing our lost maple.

We chose a Princeton Elm which is known for compact shape, strength of limb, and being disease resistance. I saw the very one in a blue pot when we drove through the gate! I needed look no further. Oh, I hope it thrives!

Meanwhile the kitchen was busy too. Today I tried a new recipe: Bacon, Apple and Onion Quiche. We like quiche and this one really impressed DH. I thought it was  good, but favor my old standby Sausage and Mushroom. New salad with tomatoes, cukes, kohlrabi, yellow pepper and cottage did not go over so well. But cabbage fresh from the farmer’s market was wonderful.

A new tea concoction today as well was tea limeade. A house favorite of a café in Oklahoma, this is black tea with frozen limeade added. DH liked it; I would prefer my old black tea, dark and iced and sweetened with sugar substitute.

The only way this day can improve is I can find some reading and writing time tonight! A good Monday for sure……

I don't know if Blogger was working earlier... but I wasn't on it until this evening and it seems just fine. I don't know if Word Press is better - I think those who are Word Press people love it. I don't know if they have any issues like Blogger or not. A little time and patience and all ends up working... your quiche looks yummy. My daughter just made a potato and garlic quiche and it was wonderful.

What a full day you had (Monday). Laughed at your analogy to food for how sticky it felt! Hope you got some reading time in, too. Vickie

Hi Bookie. I like to try new things, too, but then revert to the familiar. ha! Creature of habit, I guess. Susan
