Sunset Colors in East


This afternoon I headed to Paris to spend the week end with cousins Cindy and Bill Walker. For dinner we had Papa Murphy’s pizzas and garden salad. I had brought in all my perishables so they wouldn’t go to waste before I got back to Austin. Of course we stayed up late talking. It was after 2:00 a.m. when I got to bed.


This morning we went to a brunch at the Bois d’Arc Restaurant. The building was formerly a gasoline station. We all chose eggs benedict. It had been a long time since I had had them. They were presented a little differently that we expected but were very good. Afterwards, we went to Walgreens to get a few things and then headed home. The predicted “cold” front arrived and brought us some rain and temperatures in the mid 60s.

The clouds were very heavy to the west so we couldn’t see the sunset there. However, to our surprise, there were beautiful colors in the east!


This morning we attended services at Central Presbyterian Church in Paris. I was surprised that several of the people remembered me from my last visit in 2009. The breads used for World Communion were representative of Germany, Switzerland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, France, England, India and the USA. I chose the Israeli bread.

We had lunch at Ms. Nita’s Diner in Reno. Bill and Cindy had breakfast foods but I had the chicken and dressing. I took home half of it.

Back at home, we rode around through their pasture to check on the ponds. One was completely dry, one had little more than a mud puddle and the largest one had some water. They really need more rain. They had to start buying hay earlier this year than normal because of the drought.
