Yesterday, I spent the morning at the Duke City Hamfest again.  The only session I attended was another Skywarn Training, hosted by the Albuquerque NWS.  I like attending these, as I get referenced quite a bit for storms and storm chasing.

In the afternoon, I did some shopping and some cooking and cleaning.  I made jalapeno and cream cheese wrapped in turkey bacon, caprese, breakfast hash with hamburger, potatoes and peppers from my garden, and green Thai curry with ground turkey.

I also sat outside in the evening and posted to several of my blogs.  I also applied for a few more jobs on UpWork, so we will see how that goes.

Overall, it was a good day.  I will start at Magdalena tomorrow, and am looking forward to it.

Yesterday, I spent the day grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning.  I ran a load of laundry, which was not nearly as many loads as I had planned.  I did cook a ton of food (two stir frys, hot dogs with zucchini and onions) and made my lunches for the week.

I kept expecting it to rain, but it never did.  I gave up hope and watered the trees.  Amazingly, it did not rain, even after I tempted fate.

In the evening, I had completed most of the tasks on my list, so JoAnna made some avocado and pico de gallo dip, and we ate chips and dip while watching “Spies Like Us”.

Yesterday was a lazy summer day for me.  I woke up late and then spent the afternoon grocery shopping.  I did wander around the mall for a bit, taking photos of “Help Wanted” signs for an app that I have.

In the late afternoon, a few afternoon storms blew through nearby, making it nice outside.  I did some reading and a little writing.  I finished reading this month’s issue of Modern Casting and contacted one of the editors about a grant opportunity that was listed in the journal.

In the evening, I updated my storm chase blog to include Sunday’s storm chase.  I also did a bunch of cooking.  I made jalapeno poppers and some quinoa, though I burned the first batch of quinoa while I folded clothes in the next room.

Yesterday, I started the day by running eight miles.  It is the longest run I have ever taken.

After my run, I did some shopping and then some cooking in preparation for our road trip over the next two weeks.  I cooked three stir fries (15 meals).

I have been messing with my weather station a lot over the past few days.  For whatever reason, the transmitter is not able to get a signal into the house like it used to.  I changed the batteries, and still no luck.  I found that moving the receiver closer to the transmitter helped, so I may mount the receiver closer.  It’s annoying though, because it used to work just fine.

Yesterday, I went for a run first thing in the morning.  I only went a little over two miles, but it was nice to get out and run again.

After my run, I did some gardening.  I planted peppers, tomatoes and tomatillos, and did some weeding. I also found that one of my hoses was kinked, which is why my zucchini looked dry.  I think it is fixed now, so hopefully, they will recover from their mini-drought.

In the afternoon, I did some grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and laundry, as I tend to do on Sundays.

I made steak, onions, mushrooms and asparagus for dinner, and I think everyone enjoyed it.

Yesterday, I attended a cooking class at an area Seventh Day Adventist church.  The chef showed us how to make tumeric tea, homemade pesto and handrolls.  It was all very good.  She did not give us the recipes, but said she will email them to us, so I am looking forward to making my own tumeric tea, in particular.

The weather turned cold while I was in the class.

After class, I did my typical Sunday shopping, cleaning and cooking routine.  I baked some chicken for dinner, and I think it turned out well.

Otherwise, yesterday was unevenful.  I think I added a little oil to the Volvo, and ran up a giant dirt hill to get ten flights of steps, according to FitBit.

Yesterday was a busy day.  I started out by working on some housework, siphoning water from the aquarium and changing the cat boxes.  I also did some yard work.  I organized a few things in my reloading shed and cleaned up the area around the woodstove.  I cleaned the bathroom and kitchen.

At some point, I went for a run, somewhere around two miles.

In the afternoon, I went grocery shopping and then cooked a few dinners for this week.

In the evening, I folded several loads of laundry and checked into an amateur radio net.

I also played on an old computer until I was able to make the weather station post to Wunderground.  So far, it seems to work well.
