We have only one egg left. We will have eggs along with Monday’s Walmart grocery delivery. So rather than go shopping for eggs, I brought out some powdered eggs.
They aren’t very good. However, that is partially my fault. I had them improperly stored. The high heat in the our RV, while it was stored during several Texas summers. I’m sure the closed down RV became an oven.
Do you see how appetizing yellow they look in the photo above? Our powder is the color of well-done wheat toast.  At any rate, I prepared them. We ate them covered in salsa and cheese to make them palatable.
Yes I know, it’s hard to believe we managed to play quite a few games today, both after breakfast and after lunch.

Adam called this morning to check up on us. He wondered if we had gotten the copy of the truck title. It was ordered (by mail) on January twenty-third. The information from the website said to allow five to ten business days. Allowing for weekends and delivery times, I would expect to receive them the first part of week. We talked about looking for vans.
He also told us that he is not able to monetize his YouTube channel as he has hoped. He currently has enough subscribers to qualify but lacks enough original content. He is planning on making sufficient changes to correct that shortcoming.

This is the cold weather comfort food that my mother would have made. Hamburger gravy, mashed potatoes, beets, and sliced peaches make a mighty fine and simple lunch. At my mother’s house, the home canned beets and peaches along with the winter stored potatoes would have come up from the root cellar. The ground beef would have been purchased from the locker and the unfiltered / unpasteurized milk from a local farmer. The pudding for dessert would difinetly not have been instant. Most likely it would have been home made tapioca. It is possible that the pudding could have been store bought but I would been the kind you cook and butterscotch.


This morning we were talking about our friend Deborah. She had wrecked her car about a month ago and three weeks ago we stopped to give her a ride to church. However, she said she wasn’t feeling well and decided to stay home. Two weeks ago we were not feeling well. Last week we were iced in. So, we were going to call and see if she needed a ride tomorrow. Just moments ago we received notification that her neighbor found her dead this morning. What a shock.
