Thought I had better check in and let y’all know that we are alive and well.
Memorial Day weekend found us camping at Medina Lake Thousand Trails, about 50 miles from D’Hanis. We went swimming, slept, read, rested, ate bbq, went to a parade, rested and read some more. It was a great relaxing time.
The first weekend in June we went for about a 5 hour ride in the Jeep. We enjoy doing that kind of thing.
The second weekend in June we were back at Medina Lake Thousand Trails, this time with Hank & Euona Rathjen, a couple from here at Lone Star Corral. We visited with each other and found out what a small world we live in. In 1968 I hurt my eye on Gerber Road, in Sacramento, CA and in 1971 Hank & Euona lived on Gerber Road. Small world indeed. Saturday afternoon we went to the ice cream social at the clubhouse. In the evening we bbq’d ribs and had potato salad, coleslaw and fresh corn on the cob. It was delicious. And we followed up dinner with peach pie and vanilla ice cream. It was another great weekend here in Texas.
This weekend we ran errands, went grocery shopping, stopped at a Farmer’s Market and went to church this morning. Chatted with the pastor about our frustration of having such a difficult time to connect with people. He seemed to understand and was a good encouragement to Ron and I. He prayed with us about my upcoming surgery and said he would like to join us at the hospital before I go in and sit with Ron during the surgery. It felt so good to pray with someone else, I have missed being able to pop into Pastor Charles’ office and have him pray with me and talk about life and life’s happening’s.
After church we went to JB’s BBQ – do you see a theme here? So far we have eaten at about six different places. Our favorite so far is Busbee’s in Bandera. Maybe I should make a running list of all the places we go for BBQ and rate them. What do you think?
After lunch we went to Tractor Supply to return a denim shirt I had bought Ron ~ the snaps did not stay snapped 😦 We bought Ron two more short-sleeved western shirts (with snaps ~ he hates buttons) and I bought a sleeveless western style shirt to wear with my denim skort. We are definitely getting into the Texas wear here.
That’s about it here ~ oh, and yes it is HOT here – we are experiencing 100’+ days. Lots of them! We are told this is very unusual for this time of year. Yes 100’+ days in August not June.
That’s about it from here. Hope you are all doing great!!!
We are at Medina Lake Thousand Trails this weekend. We are surrounded by lots of trees and so many deer it is amazing.
We arrived here shortly after 5:15 p.m. and got set up and then headed over to Hank & Euona’s rig for some visiting. As we visited we talked about where we used to live and lo and behold found out that Hank & Euona lived on Gerber Road in Sacramento, CA. What is amazing is that my dad used to live on Gerber Road and that is where he was living when I hurt my eye in 1968. How crazy is that – that we were just down the road from each other and now here we are friends so many years later.
I am amazed how often we meet people who have crossed paths with us or with friends of ours. I was on Facebook a week or so ago and someone had sent me a message asking me if I knew someone. I did not know but in chatting back and forth found out we had mutual friends and that we have supported the same couple off/on over the years in their work with missionary kids. Again, a small world.
Last week I was also able to reconnect with a friend from high school and found out that her and her hubby lived for two years in a RV and traveled around the East coast. So fun to reconnect with friends from the past.
What about you ~ where have you realized it’s a small world in your life.
Just thinkin’ and not really thinkin’ of anything in particular.
We had a good weekend. Saturday, friends Don & Mike took us along with Hank & Euona out for lunch to Rocky’s in Devine. When we first pulled up we thought maybe they were closed as the OPEN sign was not on. Hank got out of the van and went to see if they were open. The door opened and after about 10 seconds motioned for us to all come inside. And so we did. We had a great time and the food was delicious. Ron and I had shrimp fettuccine, Don & Mike had chicken parmesan w/spaghetti, Hank had Tuscan chicken and Euona had a hamburger with onion rings & fries. We laughed and talked for over two hours.
After we returned home we had to make a trip to Wal-Mart to see if we could get Ron’s glasses repaired. They fell out of the case when he was getting into the Jeep on Friday. The glasses could not be repaired but we were able to get another pair of frames that his lenses fit in, and all for only $9.
Back home I did the never ending job of laundry. Four loads! How can two people generate so much laundry in two weeks?? In the evening we watched some TV and did some cleaning in the motor home. That leads me to the next question…where does all the dust come from? It seems like I sweep every day and there is still dust everywhere!
Sunday morning we slept late…I was thinking when I got up that I was fighting some type of bug ~ I just didn’t feel like my perky fun self. In the cleaning up of our rig I found our coupons for Costco and realized that yesterday was the last day of the coupons. So off to Costco and San Antonio. That trip took us over 4 hours! But we don’t need any groceries for quite awhile. Whew!! Going to Costco is not my favorite thing to do but one of those necessary things we have to do.
In the evening we did some reading and watched a couple of Dateline episodes and then off to bed.
This morning I woke up feeling a little under the weather but readied myself for work. The morning was busy with getting things ready for the CPA and catching up the mail from the weekend. At lunch time I found myself taking a short nap. After lunch my tummy started acting up and I kept getting cold chills. Decided I needed to stay home this evening instead of going out with the gals from the park. I took another two hour nap!!
I woke up thinkin I wanted to write but couldn’t think of anything to write about so this post is what you get 🙂
I do hope y’all have a great week.
