Yesterday Kevin’s sister, Mary came for a visit.  With her were her daughter, Terri, and Terri’s 4 children.  We had a really nice visit.  The kids are between 2 and 12 years old.  Kevin and I were both really impressed with how well they behaved.  Great kids, Terri!  It was fun spending time with them.  Maybe someday I’ll get to be a grandma :)

The weather continues to be hot and humid.  A line of thunderstorms came through last night; loud and windy!  The weather radio went off 4 times.

Storms make me nervous.  I’m not used to them in our new home.  So far, I’m impressed with how solid our home seems to be.  There were some strong wind gusts.  I felt the RV shake a little, but nothing to get excited about.  Our windows didn’t leak either.  We’re still getting them looked at on the 25th.

On Saturday we rented a canoe to two guys.  They were out from noon until 8 pm.  When they got back, they told us that they had tipped over, and one of them lost his wallet.  They looked for over an hour, but no luck.  I’m amazed people take things like wallets and cell phones in a canoe. 

I’m trying to make an effort to add more fish to our diet.  I made salmon patties for dinner on Saturday night using canned salmon.  They were really good!  That’s one recipe I’ll be using again.

My kids always used to cringe whenever I tried a new recipe.  I admit I’m not the best cook, but I try :)  Once in a while, I’d hit on a great new dish.  I’ll  have to try some more.  Any ideas?

We didn’t go golfing today.  The weather is just too stifling.  Maybe next week.

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!


  1. I'm with you about the weather. It makes me nervous in the house and in the MH, it's even worse!

    How about sharing the salmon patty recipe. I used to like them, but haven't made them for many years.

  2. I'm in on the weather thing too. John just sleeps thru it all but I'm always awake once the wether radio goes off.

  3. I agree with you on the storms in the motorhome. I also have a problem with strong winds. Its just something to get used to. I'll get there.

    I keep wishing and hoping I might be a grandmother one day too. I'll wait though because I don't think our son is ready for that yet. I want it to be right when it happens. But grandchildren would be fun.

  4. I love your dream of the place you want to be next winter, the picture in your header. I want to be there too. Where is it?


We'd love to hear from you!
