Laura went to lunch with a friend yesterday—forestalling her ingesting of the leftover jambalaya until today. She brought me leftovers from her lunch at Hula's Mongolian Barbecue. It was very tasty. Tonight—following Bible class at Harvest Christian Center—we shall have the remainder of the wonderful pasta salad we enjoyed last Saturday evening. I shall add sliced grilled chicken breast to the salad. It shall be delightful.

Tomorrow evening, we shall have beef fajitas. I am eager for this.

The weather promises to be beautiful again today—sunny and warm. It is forecast to be in the low 80s. While I realize that water is needed desperately in many parts of the country, and local streams, creeks, and rivers are showing the dramatic effects of this long dry spell, the warm weather is certainly enjoyable.
