Back at Camp Awesome before we head south.

Where are we today ?
           Up early as usual, coffees and computing, secure our coach and into Pettigrews Garage Plattsville for 8 am to have our coach serviced before we hit the road next week. Dale does a great job checking everything over to keep things running in tip top condition. This done around the corner to John and Lea's (Camp Awesome) and were all set up shortly after 9 am. Snuggled in beside her school bus.
          Today is a very nice sunny fall day with temps around 60f (15c). I took Suzie to a doctors appointment then back home I got to play on the John Deere mowing some lawn for a few hours. Then I put on a huge pot of chicken bones to make a nice broth for some chicken noodles soup I will finish off tomorrow.
           Then after the last few days of big meals tonights supper was just the opposite, 1/2 a turkey sandwich and a tasty bowl of ham and bean soup, just hit the spot.
         Now after supper our good friends Mike, Trish, Jordan and of course Maggie dropped out for a visit. We met them at Rock Glen Resort years ago where they stayed the whole camping season and Jordan was home schooled. But now she has re-entered the public school system.
         Today was their 18th wedding anniversary so we celebrated with some very tasty chocolate brownies my Mom made for us.
Happy Anniversary
        It was a nice enough night that we could sit outside and enjoy a wonderful evening chatting around our propane campfire.
nice to sit around the fire telling stories
         Another wonderful day getting things checked off our "to do" list before we head south. Was after my bedtime when our friends left so posting is quite a bit later than usual.
         Thanks for stopping in to check us out again and hope you enjoyed a nice sunny day too.

  1. You're right. It's about time you started thinking about hitting the road south. Daytime temperatures may be nice but it's those night time temperatures that get you.

  3. I like that the comment shows up right away after I hit the button. But that's just me. I think as long as there aren't too many "hoops" to jump through, folks will offer a comment from time to time. I've given up commenting on any blogs where I have to "be a member" or do other signing up.
    Capcha can be a challenge sometimes, depending on the size of the text, but quite often I'll just keep on moving rather
    than offer a comment.

    It's kind of neat that, in spite of being out in the country, your Motorhome service place is that close. That's handy.

  4. Ham and bean soup sure does sound good but the weather here is still a little warm. I like soups and stews when it's colder. However, I'll take the warm weather for as long as we can have it.
