Park Place

Good morning. We had another beautiful day here in the Rio Grande Valley. I spent the entire day outside and enjoyed every minute of it.

Once a month the park holds a craft fair and breakfast. Yesterday the breakfast was biscuits and gravy; which Clyde thoroughly enjoyed. We walked around the craft fair and admired some very beautiful projects. Clyde loved the wood working items that one man had for sale. I admired some beautiful necklaces that another woman had. My purchase was 5 used books from the library sale for $1.  You can’t beat the price. When I have finished reading them I can donate them back to the library for resale another month.

I spent part of my day relaxing in the sun, working on my pine needle basket, reading and visiting with friends. Clyde took Patty Pepper to the dog park where she can be off the leash. He also worked around the motorhome getting a few more things checked off his list. Steve came over to check out our hot water tank issue, as we still have no hot water. He determined we have a bad valve. Monday Clyde and Steve will see if they can find one. He also, with great effort, located our HDMI outlet on our TV. We got a Fire Stick for Christmas and need the outlet to install the app. The outlet was hidden behind the TV. The TV had to be unbolted and taken out to locate it. And, apparently all RV TV’s are extremely heavy for safety reasons while traveling. Not a fun job, but I greatly appreciated his help.

As promised, here is a picture of our site. I will probably be moving furniture around quite often until I come up with just the right set up. We have an awful lot of dirt, so we will be spending time watering the area to get some grass back.

Fish Dinner

Good morning. I think we are going to have another beautiful day here in the RGV (Rio Grand Valley). The weather app shows partly sunny with a high of 87 and very high humidity (which we could do without, but I take what I can get). I think I will be outside all day. (Big grin).

Day 106. Yesterday was a bit too windy to do any beading outside, but I did spend some time in my lounge chair reading over some patterns and planning my next projects.

While I was busy printing off some patterns and getting a few things done inside Winnie, Clyde took Patty Pepper to the dog park. It was built last year and is a nice big area that has a double fenced section so that when you enter the park other dogs can’t escape. He said it took her a good 5 minutes to leave the entrance area where she was busy sniffing and investigating. They had the area to themselves and Patty seemed to have a good time running around without a leash.

Later Clyde tried out the pool and hot tub. He loves relaxing in the water, be it a lake or a pool. When the kids were little I had to be the mean one and tell him right along with the kids that they had been in long enough and it was time to get out. They would all stay in the water until they were burned to a crisp and their skin was shriveled up like a prune. But they sure did sleep good at night from all the fresh air.

We were invited over to Steve’s for fish dinner. He enjoys fishing and cooking. That’s a good combination. We were very happy to be included in enjoying his catch along with his mom, step-dad and friend Judy. We sat on his covered patio and relaxed while he cooked on his grill. He served two types of fish. One was breaded. Both were delicious. My favorite was the non-breaded. I believe it was Red Snapper. It was cooked to perfection and so good. I can’t remember what he said the other fish was. He even sent us home with a doggy bag. (Another big grin).

Loving our lifestyle and finally our weather. Have a good day.

Until next time,
