Mike is intensely occupied with teaching pottery at the Red Barn, mentoring the robotics team, and keeping things going here at home.
He has spent countless hours fixing my computer that died a couple months back. And he must feed the boiler (the wood supply is down to one third or less) and rotate and water his winter garden.
Stephan drove back from Bronson, MO, on Sunday, and Monday as usual we went to his place for food and fun with friends. He prepared a great meal of fetuccine alfredo and chicken cordon blue.
His ice carving competition did not end as successfully as the previous week. It could have been the best, but 20 minutes before judging, it crashed. Stephan was able to creatively rescue what was left enough to merit a bronze.
Tuesday I met with a group of ladies from the church at Casa Grande. Can you guess what kind of food we ate? Although I think we did more laughing than eating.
Two nights in a row is rather unusual. I do cook, by the way. In fact this week I tried a new recipe on the DIL's blog--Zuppa Toscano. Very good!
This week we did away with our land line. Today I gathered all the phones and parts throughout the house. Good riddance!
Just yesterday I wrote about some of the technology when I was growing up--the crank phone!
