Nothing much today. We got in a decent walk with no excitement of any sort. We did get to Walmart to pickup a couple of food items.

The OFM, being single, cannot seem to eat a lot each week. Just today we had to throw away two unopened bags of formally fresh vegetables, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, that were getting moldy and over a week out of date. We have lately been very conscious about life expectancy of the food we purchase. The problem is the packaged vegetables are packaged for a family of four or so. So we try to purchase small quantities and go back to the stores about every third day to resupply fresh food.

On the way back on TX-35 from Aransas Pass, the OFM grabbed this fall weather picture. We started this morning about 58F and got up to 83F this afternoon with a low tonight of 70F predicted. Good winter weather in my book.

Meanwhile the OFM got busy on the latest painting and made great progress with it. It might be finished right after Thanksgiving.

Speaking of paintings, here is one from early this year. We tried to catch the scene we saw onetime in West Texas where the moonlight was really bright early in the night illuminating the canyon wall and leaving the mountains behind the canyon wall in darkness. It was a great event to see in person and a lot of fun trying to catch the feeling and appearance of the area.

He was definitely in over his head on this attempt but it was certainly a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. I think you nailed it. I appreciate the bright moonlit desert and the beach.

  2. Yes, what you describe seeing is very very very difficult to reproduce with our limited abilities. Giving it a shot is worth the effort. As for fresh produce, YES! Very difficult for one person to deal with. Very. And I feel bad when I have to toss stuff.
