Another week has started...we're off to the races..or so it feels...

WOW! What a day! Sure glad THAT is past me.... We I am trying to transition into another area within the corporation and do something new not only to me but the local area...more as it develops but at this point it looks VERY GOOD....AND...it ties into the Rural living blog ..sorta. I'll keep you guessing for now until it's all in place!

I ran off and left my wrap and soup at home today....a txt
msg to John...who drove it into town to me..He didn't have to do that as we keep extra cans of soups at the branch....

He had to go by the local store anyway and while he was there he picked up a couple of dozen of fresh tamales. Yes, not the best heart healthy food but in moderation you can have them. Already had some heart healthy chili on-hand but wanted something else with them and asked him if he knew how to make Spanish rice in the steamer. Well, he's figured it out. I came home to an incredible smell and the rice steamer going with a recipe on the counter. Gotta love him for trying and if it tastes as divine as it smells I'll be bulking up on a whole grain as well! It's nice to have dinner done or almost done when I get home after dark....OMG it smells wonderful!

There have been a LOT of wrecks in the local area along Hwy 59. A LOT. Several between us and Victoria, some others just north of here, others along St. Hwy 111 that runs through town....I attribute it to the heavy traffic we are experiencing from the recent oil/gas boom. God bless each of them...they are more frequent and often have fatalities. The ambulances ran several times today and the news announced other accidents. It's becoming a daily news item now.

OH and I almost forgot the best part!

Yesterday I went to the food plot and thinned out the kale by clipping 80% of the mature leaves....bagged them up and took them to work with about 8-9 jalapenos and a bunch of vine ripened tomatoes..... the girls hadn't had kale but have heard me preaching the nutritional value over and over....

They fought over this HUGE bag I had brought.....and said they'd cook it up tonight. I bet we create more fans tonight...

Ahh.....the nicest things about being a grower is sharing....
