Around The House

Just some pics from around the house I took a couple of days ago with the Nikon and 140mm lens. What’s up with the canned goods? I keep a large stash of food and water in a spare bedroom closet which currently has 14 cases of water and much more food than what you see in the photo. I picked up the spurs in 2019 when I purchased my home as just a nik nak around the house. I am in the west, right?

God Save The Queen

Seeing the Queen on the back of this trailer prompted me to take the photo, how sad that Her Majesty passed just four months ago. Can Hispanic folks make good fish and chips, a very British dish? The lake was so tranquil this afternoon that I had to stop to capture the scene. How is your Wednesday going?

A Local’s Perspective

Here is my perspective on the sudden windstorm that started about three hours ago. I wasn’t paying attention to the weather obviously. When these storms come along, my house starts making creaking noises and you can hear where the seals are not too good on the door and some windows.

We are overdue for this from my perspective since it’s been three weeks or so since a good blow blew through the valley. The photos of the Strip are unprocessed sans a slight brightening. On another note, yesterday I made a delicious pot of fresh chili. Man, that was so good!

But, bonehead me went to bed and forgot to put it in the refrigerator! I looked up some food safety information and decided to dump the entire pot down the kitchen sink drain. That really sucked, but it’s better than possibly landing in the hospital! There is a replacement slow cooking at the moment.

Some of you know of my love for chili, don’t you!

Fence Lines

This photo shows aluminum fence lines on the concrete at the park yesterday using the iPhone 12. It is triple-processed with the Aurora HDR app and Photoscape X. A bit overprocessed? I have a fresh pot of chili slow-cooking, would you like to stop by for a bowl with me later?

Chili With Ground Turkey

Since stopping eating red meat, I rarely put any meat in my chili but this time I seasoned the turkey very nicely while in the frying pan. This plus adding other herbs to the pot itself brought out some very delicious flavors in this new pot which was made yesterday. It got the same six-hour slow cook that all of my chili pots get. I love how good my home smells when walking in the door from outside!
