And no, I didn’t use the wrong camera settings, this is yesterday morning’s view–it was worse today, even the foothills were obscured by smoke. This is our “normal” view of the West Boulder mountains.
No Crazy Mountains visible yesterday or today. Below is the way that view frequently appears–
Yesterday afternoon we were sitting in the yard enjoying the breeze and sounds of the creek. I pointed to one of our sprinkler heads and we proceeded to have the following conversation:
Me: We need to dig up that sprinkler head, it’s too far below the ground and pointed too high.
The Cowboy: I know where there’s a shovel you can use.
Me: Oh, no, that’s a blue job! (Lots of RVers refer to the inside chores of the RV as pink jobs and the outside chores such as dumping tanks blue jobs.
The Cowboy: Oh, no–it’s only a blue job when I’m using the excavator, shovels are pink jobs!
We are currently in another coffee dilemma! I am a coffee snob and not ashamed of it! I like dark, strong, flavorful coffee. We purchase Costco Espresso Blend Dark Roast coffee beans and I grind the beans–I have a heavy duty type grinder which has a container with the capacity to hold enough ground coffee to last about three days. I usually grind enough beans to last about a week or more and store it in a glass container–I make our coffee the night before and am not enough of a coffee snob to grind my beans fresh each day. I was feeling lazy the other day and said I was going to stop grinding coffee and just buy it all ready ground–well–that’s not happening! The ground coffee I purchased was the exact same bean as the Costco coffee we use but what a difference in taste–YUK! Back to the beans!
I actually quilted today!! Can you believe it! Remember this photo from a blog in late JUNE!! I finished the little horse and started on the fish today–it felt good to be using the longarm!The Cowboy spent the morning in town installing a storm door for his Dad. Friday morning Nat called to say the storm door was at his house. The lumber store is owned by a friend of the Cowboy’s and although Ullmans does not usually deliver, they did deliver the door to Nat’s–small town living at its best!
