Spring kinda took a day off !

Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America 
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we today ?

        With all that work I did yesterday, a couple hours getting water and filling our fresh water tank,  walkabouts, relaxing in the sun with our books, chatting with neighbor Deb, and grilling supper on our Weber I guess wore myself out. And the fact that my breathing /cold problem/allergies,  (whatever it was) is subsiding and a nice cool night for sleeping I actually slept until about 7:30 this morning, wow! Two hours longer than normal.

        But we did not have very good weather today, overcast, cool and windy, that's ok we have stuff to do right? Computing, coffees, walkabouts plan our active day and hang out. So the walkabouts were nice but windy, then decided to bake some banana nut muffins, nothing fancy just a mix but hey they are pretty tasty and fresh.

         Just looking around and enjoying the sunshine whenever it appeared was great, but still a cool wind today, not really conducive to sitting outside. Just kinda putter around and enjoy the fresh air, not to shabby. Our water is not turned on yet maybe tomorrow we will see, no matter we have water in our tanks.

        Mid afternoon I wandered over to the clubhouse to soak in the hot tub and swim a few laps of the awesome pool before it got too busy. Then at 4:30 a busload of kids come in for an hour of after school swimming lessons. Don't want to be in the pool then! Its nice that the resort makes the facilities available for the locals as well (make a few extra bucks too I am sure).

        Now we were hoping to BBQ supper again but, a little too cool and windy so went to plan "B". Shake and Bake a couple pork chops in a casserole dish on top of rice, canned tomatoes, and veggies for a very tasty one dish meal that we have not had for a long time. Cool weather brings out these old recipes.
hey pretty tasty
        Now that's it for today, read compute a bit and call it a day. Not too exciting but still a lot of fun for us, everyday is different and always interesting.

        Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  1. Even the Calender says it is Spring but that wind sure doesn't feel like it. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Well with spring comes spring fever. We all need to sit and rest a bit after all the winter activity. Take a day off and enjoy the spring fever.

    1. I have taken a few days off, time to get nice now.

  3. That's the problem with spring, it's like a yoyo, always up and down. The green grass looks nice.

    Don't forget to vote for us,

  4. Hey - thanks for the dinner idea for tonight. Those pork chops and rice looked great.

  5. Mother Nature took a day off and made you relax as well :)

    1. We can relax a bit everyday, even when the weather is nice.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
