This and That

That’s just what we’ve been doing the past few days.

We had a wonderful time last weekend with our camping club friends.  Each month 3 families volunteer to be the food committee.  They plan the main course, and everyone else brings a potluck item.  This month the committee had a Mexican themed meal.  We all brought appetizers in the afternoon and had blender drinks to go with them.  Then for dinner, they had tacos.  Everyone had signed up in advance to bring a fixing for the tacos.  They also had rice and refried beans.  Delicious!!  There were decorations and even a competition for the best dressed Mexican.  We had a blast.  It was hot so we also spent time each day in the pool.

On Monday we went golfing again.  Kevin had a very good round again.  I shot par on a par 3 hole.  The rest of the round was up and down for me.  Some very good shots and some awful ones.  We had a good time, though.

Yesterday my mom and her friend came for a visit.  We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon sitting outside although it was hot again.  Kevin cooked burgers on the grill for dinner.  This was the first time my mom has visited since we began fulltiming.  I think her mind was more at ease when she left.  She was impressed at how nicely we were living.  She also thought we looked so relaxed and stress-free and very healthy :)

Today was laundry day and then I did a little shopping.  I had been given a gift card to Kohls at my work going away party.  Since it has been so hot, I decided I needed some more sleeveless tops.  I was able to find a few; and, of course, being Kohls they were on sale :)

    What a great saying. Reading about the days you are having gives me motivation to stick to what I have to do.

    Don't get too good a golf! I want to do a round with you someday and I have don't know anything about golf.

    Isn't it fun to shop for relaxed clothes instead of work clothes?

  3. Great to meet you guys!
    Sounds like a great camping group you all belong to. It is always fun to meet up with RVers.

    I look forward to reading your blog and catching up with your journey. :)

  4. Maybe your Mom will be more at ease now. The mexican dinner sounds like great fun.

    Stay Safe

  5. Being able to do this and that is what it's all about in this lifestyle. :)


We'd love to hear from you!
