With 'slightly' cooler air upon us Monday night Pheebs and I were out the door about 8:30 heading east out into the country. At our night sky spot, dusk was already upon us and I could see the Planet Jupiter low in the southeastern sky. I was later able to get a few photos showing the Moon plus the two Planets, Jupiter and Saturn all in the same frame.

Kelly and I talked on the phone late this afternoon for about an hour getting caught up on things. Kelly, her two sisters, and brother are still trying to make continuing difficult and changing decisions on their mother's health care. Should they have more medical aides coming in to help out?? Should they be trying to do more themselves?? What about a nursing home?? Palliative care, etc. etc. Looks like Pheebs and I will be on our own for a while yet but that's okay, we got lots of dog food and peanut butter stocked up:))
I REALLY APPRECIATED BEING ABLE TO DRIVE IN THE SHADE THIS MORNING
GROANER'S CORNER:(( MONDAY: It's fun to cook for Tom. Today I made angel food cake. The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately. The neighbors were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls. TUESDAY: Tom wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said serve without dressing. So I didn't dress. What a surprise when Tom brought a friend home for supper. WEDNESDAY: A good day for rice. The recipe said wash thoroughly before steaming the rice. It seemed kind of silly but I took a bath anyway. I can't say it improved the rice any. THURSDAY: Today Tom asked for salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said prepare ingredients, lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving. Tom asked me why I was rolling around in the garden. FRIDAY: I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said put the ingredients in a bowl and beat it. There must have been something wrong with this recipe. When I got back, everything was the same as when I left. SATURDAY: Tom did the shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday (oh boy). For some reason, Tom keeps counting to ten. SUNDAY: Tom's folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve roast but all I had was hamburger. Suddenly I had a flash of genius. I put the hamburger in the oven and set the controls for roast. It still came out hamburger, much to my disappointment. GOOD NIGHT DEAR DIARY. This has been a very exciting week. I am eager for tomorrow to come so I can try out a new recipe on Tom. If I can talk Tom into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with chocolate moose.
