Police Officer Memorial Day ~ Egg Burrito ~ Sprayer ~ Bruise ~ Rick & His Brush Hog

Good 46ยบ clear morning.

This is Police Officer Memorial Day ... also Police Week...
Honoring Brothers and Sisters who have fallen in the line of duty.
.... including my friend Raul Gama. RIP Raul. Your lovely family misses you and your friends miss you.
Thank you to all of those who have served in law enforcement... from the tan & green to the blue. All heroes in my book, including my late husband Jerry ♥ and my daughter Kristen! So proud of what you did Kristen!  ♥


Here is a panorama I took yesterday morning about 7:30...
...and the one I took in the afternoon while Rick was brush hogging...

Breakfast was a burrito. I cooked some ground round with the following seasonings:

Then I added eggs and topped with cheese. GOOD!

Yesterday I finally got to spray the roads! The new pump motor on the sprayer works perfect! Thanks Dave.

Maggie and Dude and I took a ride in the golf cart to open the gate first thing in the morning. Bruiser decided to follow along... nut. He climbed a tree and I had my camera...

Rick showed and brush-hogged all day. Lots got done.  He spent 7 hours on the big pasture. He'll be back today to tackle the upper pasture.

He did an excellent job. The best of anyone I've hired so far. Cut it really close and tight. Nice.


Dinner was a can of Progresso Chicken and Dumpling soup. Too tired to cook.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day

National Chocolate Chip Day

Ah, the ubiquitous chocolate chip. As Fun Food Holidays go, National Chocolate Chip Day is a no-brainer, as these heavenly little drops represent the primary way many people eat chocolate in the first place. Good in cookies, muffins, trail mix, pancakes, and so much more.
