Uneventful weeks are hard to write about. When I talk to friends and family back in the Great Plains, they ask “What did you do today?” It’s pretty boring to say that we went hunting for dune buggy parts or an awning latch for the motor home or to WalMart for groceries. There’s always a trip to the Tiki Hut for self service frozen yogurt, but I think everyone expects exciting adventures, not a two mile walk around the neighborhood. In our early years on the road, we hiked and played tourist a lot. Now, LeRoy works on his newest project and I keep house, pretty much what we might be doing if we were still in Kansas. Humdrum, every day stuff. I go to Bible study once a week and take the lady who is staying on our lot to play dominoes on Thursday. LeRoy goes to the church men’s group once a month and today we had lunch outside with the Sunday school class. In between this “busy schedule”, we’re getting ready to lock the place up and travel in a couple of weeks. Now you know!
Back home, today is my sister Mary Jo’s birthday. Florence Marie is about to become a great grandmother and our youngest granddaughter bought her first fancy dress for a prom alternative held by her best friend’s church. I’m so grateful for cell phones that allow us to talk to and sometimes to see each other. Remember the days when long distance calls were planned for after 7 pm because it was cheaper then? We didn’t call often and we timed our calls so that we could keep cost down. Talk, text and data are unlimited on our phone plan (which also costs plenty), but well worth the cost for keeping in contact.
Golden Bell Camp, where we will be spending our summer, has had feet of snow these last few weeks. FEET! We plan to be there by mid-May, but we sure hope the snow will be gone in our parking space! Here and I think back in Kansas and Nebraska, too, spring weather is showing up. It has been more than 80 degrees here recently, mostly with a light breeze. Some days, more than a slight breeze, but we can live with it. After all, I grew up in Kansas!
Easter is on the way, Covid or not. If Jesus could rise from the dead, he can still bring rejoicing and salvation to the hearts of believers all over the world. I’m forever grateful.
See y’all down the road!
