We Couldn't See the Mountains

It was grey and gloomy this morning - you couldn't see Four Peaks nor any of the other hills and mountains on the other side of the valley. The wind was still gusting and the sky was overcast. There was a lot of dust in the air and there were even a few rain drops in the mix. I gave Andrew and his crew a call and we decided to postpone Auntie Violet's bath for another day.

And wouldn't you know it, as the day went by the clouds, the fog\smog, the dust cleared away and we ended up with a nice, though chilly late afternoon. Oh well, they'll maybe get to it tomorrow afternoon late or else on Thursday.

It was a good chilly day to clean out the fridge and make stew. I found a bottle of nice Merlot when we were re-arranging stuff in the bathroom cupboard, so I had a good base. I found a package of stew meat in the freezer, thawed and browned it, then added carrots, an onion, some baby Yukon Gold potatoes and a sweet potato. It simmered all afternoon and we had good eats!
