Kevin and I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happier New Year!!
We continue to enjoy sunny weather in Yuma. Golf is still our main activity. With all this practice, our games have been improving a little. Kevin's handicap has dropped a few points. I had my best game ever last week. A group of ladies were playing at Foothills Executive Course. It is a par 34, and I had a score of 40 with four pars and one birdie. I felt like I was in a dream. Of course, the next time I played, reality was back with a vengeance. Ha, ha!
We had stored some of our Christmas decorations in Eric's basement as we couldn't use them all while we were full time RVing. Eric has his house on the market, so we had to take our stored items with us. It was fun decorating our small house. Kevin used to decorate with tens of thousands of lights at our house in Wisconsin. He resumed this activity on a smaller scale, only now we have a palm tree in front of our house.
Our inside tree is also four feet tall, with fake snow on it. I added some of the other ornaments that were in storage, as well as those we had collected during the nine years we were on the road. It looks so pretty.
A few weeks ago our friend Cynthia invited four of our neighborhood ladies to her place to make gingerbread houses from a kit. None of us had ever done this before. The box said it was for ages 3 and up. Hmmm, I don't think so. We had a lot of laughs, and they all turned out beautiful, but it wasn't so easy. The frosting didn't always want to cooperate.
Above is my finished house. The two pictures below are the five of us who enjoyed this activity together and our creations.
You may have noticed in my pictures these last few months that it's the same people. We're keeping our bubble of friends pretty small on purpose. Better to be safe, and we really enjoy the company of these great friends here at our park.
On December 10th, we celebrated Kevin's 65th birthday with cheese cake and some of the same good friends. The best part of turning 65 is Kevin is now Medicare eligible, and has much better health insurance coverage.
I have also been doing some quilting. Last summer while we were in the fifth wheel for three months, I did a bunch of applique blocks for a new bedspread for the RV. When we got back, I sewed them all together. I haven't put the sides on yet, because I want to measure it on our bed, but the fifth wheel has been at the dealer for the last three months for warranty service. Apparently, parts are incredibly difficult to get. At least, that's the story they're telling us. We don't need it until June, so hopefully, it'll be done by then :)
The new bedspread is done in a Northwoods theme, as that's how I have the RV decorated.
The other quilt I finished is in Christmas colors.
That pretty much covers what we've been up to for the past month. We are hopeful the vaccine will help the world get back to normal.
