French Onion soup is in the Instant Pot. I really need to use that pot more - it did saute the onions nicely before pouring in beef stock. Mom used a pressure cooker almost daily and I did as well although very nervous about that cooker. Well, there was that one time incident with the pressure cooker throwing food all over the kitchen...
Finally, after many days of record setting heat, the coolness arrived. Not the beautiful blue skies yet - we really do not sit outdoors or walk outside and that will not change until the fires are contained.
Marilyn: Everything will work out somehow. It is so painful to watch decline of memory.
One more month until my washing machine arrives. A neighbor has offered her machine use - and one son has been washing, drying and folding our clothes so we do have wonderful helpers.
Don was watching the Broncos lose a football game. I don't know how they can be so active when the elevation in Denver is over 5,000 ft. At home, we are higher and we really should be looking for a lower altitude for health sake - but nothing is low in Colorado.
I have started a personal study of Daniel, since I am still not attending church. I found a good website that has a great commentary on the study of daniel. So I first read the chapter than go to the commentary.
Not much happening around here. Keith is developing or manifesting changes. He walks all bent over like an old man (he is 74), his steps are so tiny and he holds onto the walls, store shelves and cars. I tell him not to touch other people's cars as he may set off the alarm.He refuses to use a walker and the hernia is getting bigger, he won't wear the hernia belt either. The hernia is so big the belt does absolutely nothing. He can't seem to find his way around the house any more. I really don't think it will be long before I have to place him in a hone. My own health may be indicative of determining that date. I keep praying and asking the Lord "who is going to take care of Keith should something happen to me.All I can do is to cry out to Jesus to help me.

I just had a long phone call from a neighbor/friend. We have terrific neighbors. Today, was a scheduled mammogram test. The worst part was driving to the new building. They have 3 routers (circles) and three U -turns. Cannot imagine anyone making such a difficult entrance to a hospital and care buildings. I hope the ambulance has a straight shot to the emergency door.
Time for cooking - tonight will be macaroni and creamy (white cheese) sauce. Pineapple for dessert.
The big church is beginning a women's study and I dearly love it but just cannot go to a gathering. At least, I think it is a gathering because they have a video showing - nope, I can't take the chance with bringing the plague into our house. Also, a neighbor is lending a walker with a seat if Don wants it - sure would be safer than the walking stick he uses. Air is still polluted from fire many miles away and any time we see blue sky, we are happy to see a break in the heavy whiteout.

It is a cool and sunny morning but our usual blue sky hasn't returned yet with all the white smoke from fires. Everyone is wishing for an early rain/snow winter right now. The leaves are turning golden already and nights are cooler but daytime heat has been setting record highs.
Reading Max Lucado - there are three books in one volume. That should be re-reading. The first book is "Traveling Light" and another is "It's not about me". Otherwise, it is fun to keep in touch with friends via internet or phone.

Carol... ...wishing the same back to you... We so take our fresh air for granted, dont we, thanks to our trees, ( they absorb carbon dioxide, and in turn, give off oxygen, ) which many have been around far longer than we have...Our birds are also needing our trees, we need our birds, our bird songs...if only to remind us there is still life out there,,
An Indian lady neighbour friend handed me a pocket size book of just 70 plus pages called " Living Water The Gospel of John " which i was reading in bed last night before it sent me to sleep after reaching page 20...
With everything bad - frightening that is going on around our world, we need every bit of comfort we can get...

Jackie: Good day to you. I hope everything is going well for everyone here.
Here, we are over the top with medical appointments for Don - some online and others are out to the Veteran's hospital. Life is still good in so many ways and we are thankful for his medical care.
We cannot sit outdoors because the air is so polluted from fires - so we are fortunate to have an old walking machine in the basement and a stationary bike to keep those knees going. Hoping for an early snow but rain would be great as well to clear the air.
Time to think of another meal soon. Take care everyone.

Judy: I sure do remember Pat and am so glad she spent one night here with Paul. We had a wonderful visit> \
Don is still recuperating day by day is a bit better. He just sorted medicine and is that a monthly task we never expected. We really miss being outdoors because of the smoke in the air and super dry conditions. I have an old treadmill and a stationary bike in the basement and force a daily duty. Hopeful housekeeping is counting exercise too - it should be counted.
We have an old friend in Minnesota who is having serious memory problems and I hope her daughter can set up a Zoom account so we can "see" each other. Once all these medical appointments are over, I hope to get to the bible study - it may be over the internet - this is the mega church two of my friends attend. There are no indoor meetings now - all on closed video.
One son and one granddaughter came for a visit plus our son went around the house and fixed things for us. Such a sweet thing and she brought her boyfriends dog who loves everyone. Great afternoon. Another son picked up my laundry (the washer is kaput) and he even dried and folded two big piles of sheets and clothing. I told him my dryer is working. Counting the days until that washer arrives -
