There is no Joy here today - not so mighty Argentina is out

Very disappointing game for Argentina today in their last game in the World Cup. Their coach better have guards when he returns to Argentina. Very poor coaching and choosing of players. Enough said. Now pulling for Mexico. 
We've been pretty much watching the games for a couple of weeks, now not so interested. No idea what country might take home take home the cup.
So on to NASCAR - lots of that on the TV today. It was so hot in Chicago the drivers were getting sick. A thermometer in one car read 159 - then it quit working. One driver lost 8 pounds during the race. Guess I shouldn't complain about the heat here. 
It continues to be warm here, but only in the low 100's hottest day in forecast 105, can live with that. And the wind continues to blow. Outside in the shade - 8:00 in the morning. 

I've been on a cooking kick - well kind of. Have been fixing dinner every other night. And tonight is a cooking night. Bill has been cooking too. He made 50 pieces of Milanese. Now the freezer is full. Lots of sandwiches and easy dinners there. 
 One shot of the full moon over the desert the other night. 
I've been trying to get out to walk every other morning. Been doing between a mile and a mile and a half. Have to get out early though. Waited until 8:00 yesterday and about baked, by then there are no shadows to walk in. Need to get my weight down and get my self active again. Way too much sitting on sofa reading and watching TV. 
There was a blurb on Facebook with a crocheted  doily (sp?) and I remembered the King sized bedspread I have. My Mom crocheted it for me. When we had a spare room I used it but won't put it on the bed we use all the time so it is just wrapped up. Going to see if any of our daughters -in-law want or will use it. 
Bill likes to read and nap on our bed and I'm afraid this just wouldn't hold up. It is so beautiful I feel bad not having it out. Depending on the decor of the room I use a colored king sheet under it in the rooms color. 
Guess we will be getting two new homes across the street from us. Will be interesting to watch them being put in.

Your bedspread is beautiful. Such a work must take many hours and it is a wonderful remembrance of your mother.

I feel bad that is not being used.
