Another Hot one in Nevada...

Yesterday morning I was awake about 0300 and just couldn't go back to sleep.  I hate nights like that, but whatcha gonna do.  Wait until a respectable time (0500) and wake your hubby up to have coffee and banana bread. 

Got the day started and knew it was going to be close to 100 degrees again so I decided to cook dinner in the morning.  During my awake time after 0300 I decided turkey meatloaf and grilled veggies would make a good dinner.  Ken watered all the trees and garden, I made our breakfast. He had his 3 poached eggs and toast and I decided for a change of oatmeal and fresh fruit. Yummy. Then I got started on the meatloaf. Haven't made it in forever, but just kinda threw the basics in and a little jalapeño for kick.  Put them in the oven and made our salad stuff for lunch.  Jumped in the shower. 

Then it was time to tackle the bedroom.  In looking for my tennis shoes that morning, I looked under our bed and decided it was time for a deep cleaning.  Our bedroom is in the back of the house, and there's a screen door right by it.  The wind blows right in the screen door most of the time and the sand gets under the bed..yuk.  It's amazing how in such a short period that happens.  Moved the bed, turned the mattress and washed all the bedding. Don't ya just love the feel of clean sheets?! 
Ken's been checking the poison in the trailer daily, seems whatever is out there is still running around.  He ran to the hardware store and got some sticky poison, so maybe he'll catch one or more of whatever they are.  I'm not going camping again, till I know whatever it is has left, one way or another..uhh

Did typical cleaning, lunch and then some other things.  Around 1500 Ken came in with our old video camera that we bought about a year after Adam was born. Ohoh.. there goes the rest of the afternoon.  For the next two hours or so we watched videos of Adam, Seth and Jacob..Seth was about 8 months old and Adam had just turned 3.  Wow how time flies.  

We watched the news (why I don't know), happy hour and finally had our delicious dinner (if I do say so myself).  Off to bed.  About 0100 Ken woke me up and said "It's hot, let's go to the spare room".  He had already turned on the A/C..I grabbed a sheet and threw it on us, until about 0300 when I got up and grabbed a little blankie because I was cold, but then couldn't go back to sleep.  So just about 0400 I decided to get up and start the day. 

We're running over to Fallon (about 50 miles) to a little antique store over there that we like and twice a year they have several other vendors come over and sell their wares.  It's where we bought the bed frame for the bunk house last year and my dresser for our bedroom.  So just for fun let's go look and we'll take the truck just in case :)  We've decided to go out to breakfast at this casino in Fallon that we like, but haven't been too in a long while.  

Just turned on the coffee, cut the banana bread and gonna get this posted.  Have a great Saturday!! 

A boy and his dog...Adam and Raider :)

After Russell dropped the kids off back at home in Cool on Thursday, they headed down to their neighbors pond and did some more fishing.  This time Mason got lucky and caught fish.  Eric said they caught about 40 between them.  Not sure how long they were out there, but they're persistent.  Eric met up with them after work, and even drove the 61 Chevy Impala.  He's working on it as he has time. 

Mason and one of his beauties


Mason, again..

And a frog he caught...hahaha...

Good thing these are all catch and release!

  1. Your sleep hours are very strange! I wouldn't make it through a day if I woke up at 3 or 4 am! Good for you for taking advantage of it and making your daily meals!
    Isn't it nice that we don't have to work though, so we can wake and sleep whenever it suits our body.
