A day at home.

After a chilly night reaching 41𝇈, it was a beautiful day today. We sat out quite a while this afternoon. The sun was out off and on and it reached 72𝇈 by late afternoon.  We had the doors and windows open until 8 tonight and it felt great!  The previous couple of nights we had less "over-nighters" here at the park.  Last night I think we only had 2 or 3. We are right off the interstate, so we had many nights were there were only 1 or 2 empty spots.  Seemed as though a lot of people were leaving their destinations early to head home because of Covid 19 and this was a convenient stop.  Tonight, however, the number of people here for just the night appears to be back up.  Maybe the exodus isn't over quite yet.

We are going to try and hang out at the RV for most of the next 2 weeks and see what happens out there.  We could get by with the food we have, but we are going to do a grocery trip tomorrow morning during the senior shopping hour.  We have a pretty good idea what things we go through quicker after the past two weeks.  We decided that since we still have a low Covid 19 count in our county it might be better to get a month's worth now, instead of possibly encountering a lot more sickness in 2 weeks.  We, nor anyone, can't predict what it will be like.

Today was baking day.  I made mini chocolate chip cookies.  Well, ok, I didn't make them, just took them out and baked them, but it took effort and they were good (no, I didn't eat all of them).  Tonight I did make coffee cake and froze 2/3 of it.  Washed sheets, changed Krikkit's bedding and Pat set up my sewing machine this afternoon.  We set it up on the tray on the dash this time in front of the passenger's seat.  It sets a little too high and a little too far from the seat, so I don't think it's going to work well.  My back is already aching.  We decided to try making some of the homemade face masks this evening.  They don't stop Covid 19,  but hopefully they stop some germs and at least keep us from touching our faces when we are at the store, etc.  I didn't have any elastic, so I tuned into Missouri Star Quilting's tutorial on face mask with ties.  It was really simple.  I got everything ready and cut out what we needed.  I delegated the ironing of the ties to Pat.  It was the most time consuming, and he really came through.  Who knew?  He surprises me sometimes.  Anyway, I appreciated his help.  I hope you had nice weather to enjoy


  1. That's actually the coffee cake. I packaged it in small containers to freeze. Hope you do have nice weather coming1

  2. There seem to be a few campgrounds still open by the Spacex Texas launch site. Could be interesting to sit there for the next month.

  3. That would be a great place! We have to head north soon, but will keep that in mind when we head that way next winter.
