Getting nailed

Elaine’s freshly-done nails, in purple of course!

Elaine headed to Walmart this morning to get her nails done. She has a tech at the Walmart at 19th Ave and Bell whose work she likes, and she always goes there when she can. While there she did a little shopping as well. Continue reading Getting nailed. Newsletter work. Solution did not work.

Dry again

We’ve had some rain over the last couple of days, resulting in about 3/10ths of an inch in our area. In fact, we had several consecutive hours of rain yesterday; not raining hard but fairly constant. That was good, for we need it. It looks like we’ll be clear for the next few days, with temps in the mid-70s, but next week the forecast calls for temperature drops to below normal (69-70° is normal this time of year) and the possibility of more rain.

Newsletter

I started today working on the March issue of The Palm Press, the newsletter of the Royal Palm Park Association. It will go to press in a week and a half, so I have to get started now. Today I copied February’s file to start March’s, and then did the basic edits such as replacing “February” with “March”. I also removed all the items pertaining to events that are February-based. Tomorrow I will work on content for March. Continue reading Newsletter. Web work.

Women’s Club

Twice a month, the Women’s Club meets and today was the day. Elaine spent the latter half of the morning at the meeting; she is Vice President. The Women’s Club holds several events during the year and a most notable one is coming up next month. They honor the Paramedics that serve our community with a party at which they give them a check from the donations given by the Royal Palm community. One of their events – a penny and bake sale – had to be canceled in January because so many in our community were sick. Continue reading Women’s Club. Flyers and tickets. More Violette Family work.

Meal on the grill. Elaine’s hand. Construction in yard. Duplicate emails.

Meal on the grill

Garlic Steak and Cheesy Bacon Potato Hash Foil Packs

It sure smelled great around our place late this afternoon as the meal Elaine prepared was cooking on our grill. In fact, it raised some comments from the construction workers in our back yard! I can attest that it was delicious!

She saw the recipe on Facebook and downloaded it from CafeDelites. You can get it at cafedelites.com/steak-cheesy-bacon-potato-hash-foil-packs/. She mostly followed the recipe she says, but did make her own changes to suit herself.

If you use the recipe I think the potatoes should either be cut into smaller pieces or partially cooked before putting them in the foil packages; ours were still a little hard. We also cooked it about five minutes longer to get the steak cooked more for Elaine’s taste. Continue reading Meal on the grill. Elaine’s hand. Construction in yard. Duplicate emails.

Elaine a model

Elaine and five other women from Royal Palm will be models in an upcoming fashion show here in the Park. She and two others, Nina Page and Gladys Swartz, went up to Anthem this morning to select three outfits each that they will model in the show. They went to the store that is sponsoring the event, which will take place on Feb 28th. The fashion show will benefit the Park Association through ticket sales to attend the event. I made tickets for the event and they will go on sale this week. Continue reading Elaine a model. VFA membership.
