Good 60º super smokey morning.
Yesterday the smoke was a little less.... At least my mountain was visible for most of the morning and early afternoon! We topped at 97º.
Then by later in the afternoon my mountain disappeared again!
I looked out back and there was a couple mommas and their babies.... one standing in the water tub drinking!

Noonish I made a run into town and as I left my place a couple of boxes (USPS sent) and some of my mail was laying on the ground by my gate! Wednesday Thursday Friday???? In my mailbox was some mail left earlier and a note to pick up a package at the PO with yesterday's date. I'm guessing the mail by my gate was left on Tuesday (or Monday?). I raised heqq at the PO and the gal told me they have a new carrier and she's just learning. So I filled out a form to have any packages held at the PO and NOT to leave them sitting by my gate out in the weather!!! DUH. Why in the heqq the mail was left with the packages is a puzzlement. Why wasn't it put in the mailbox????? Sigh..........
I also stopped at the market for some butter flavor cake mix and since they didn't have peach pie filling, I got sliced canned peaches like Greg said he used in the peach cake. I will make that today.
Dinner was Schwans breaded chicken bites, frozen to oven or microwave. I had some fresh broccoli I tossed with olive oil and some garlic salt, put in air fryer with a bit of water in the bottom to steam, 350º for 8 minutes..... still crunchy and with a roasted bit on the edges! A little Swiss cheese and some ranch dipping sauce.... YUMMMMO!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
