Monday January 15- This weather is really weird this year. It's been cooler than normal, wetter than normal and windier than usual. I know it's better than Iowa or up north, they have really been getting hit with cold and snow. I keep telling everyone that I came here for the warm weather and I admit I'm missing it. Our friends that are visiting the park are in a tear drop camper and the weather isn't really good for that. We invited them over for coffee and breakfast this morning. Then we had some things we needed to do and they had some places they wanted to go. We drove north to Stuart, Ruby needed some dog food. It was a bit of a challenge finding some place that carries it. We found one though. When we got back the wind has really picked up...it's super windy. We had Ron and Barb over for supper tonight. It was to cold and windy to sit outside so we stayed in and avoided the wind and weather.
Tuesday January 16- We had to work today so our friends did some adventuring while we worked. Then we went out for supper with them. We went to The Ale House. We have ate there before. The food was good but we enjoyed the company more.
Wednesday January 17- We had to say good bye to Barb and Ron today. We took a break from work to see them off. Then we finished up. Tonight after work we went to Norman and Diane's condo. We met them through church. The first year we were down here we joined there life group at church. Diane told us that they were having gourmet food trucks coming to there condo's. The weather again was a bit cool so we went down and got the food, went back up to there place to eat. They live right on the ocean very nice. Jeff and I got a philly cheesesteak sandwich and it was gourmet, very good. After eating we visited with Norman and Diane, we only see them on Sunday's as we are leaving church. It was nice to just have a good visit with them.
Thursday January 18- Oh my my it was really cold this morning. It started out at 37 degrees. The good news was the sun was shining. Still was really cold riding around in that cart. I said it felt like Iowa with palm trees.
It was a long day, trying to stay warm wears ya out.
Friday January 19- Our day off....yeah. We felt like we needed to do something. We have some cracks on the inside panel of our door in the rig. We decided to get some stuff to fix it ourselves. We seem to have better luck doing things ourselves. At least we will get it done the best we can. First we went to Le Mesa RV. We asked the lady about doors and she was really kind of rude. So we left the store part and headed out to look at some fifth wheels. Didn't see anything we couldn't live without so we left. We stopped at the Home Depot to get what we needed to fix the door. Then we made our way back home. As we pulled in Sandy and Ken pulled up and said they are getting together down at the concession area for happy hour with some of the volunteers. So we went to join them. It was a pretty good way to end the day.
Saturday January 20- Did some laundry today and took Miss Ruby for a walk. We also got started on the new door panel. We got it cut out but didn't try to put it up yet. We are still trying to figure out exactly what we will do. We got Miss Ruby a pouch to carry her in. I'm not sure how thrilled she is with it? I also did some baking today. We are having company tomorrow.
Sunday January 21-We greeted at church today. This is a great place to be on Sunday morning....we leave feeling so much more happy and very blessed. We got home and made brunch. Then I put together some chili for supper tonight. Ken and Mary are coming over to watch the football game. The Eagles verses the Vikings. Well they are from Philly so I guess you know who we were cheering for. It was nice out today so I got to do some quilting outside. With our new puppy I can't quilt when she is out. She likes to chew on the batting. So I have to have her in a pen to quilt now. About 5 o'clock our company showed up. We had chili for supper and then watched the football game. It was a good night for Eagle fans....
Monday January 22- It's a beauty of a day today. Decided to take a walk to Hobe Tower. Jeff and Miss Ruby came too. I let Ruby walk some but brought her carrier to try after she got tired. I think she likes it, especially when she's tired. It was a nice day to take a walk.
After we took some pictures we headed back down and made our way back to the rig. I enjoyed the sunshine outside and sat outside.
Tuesday January 23- Well it's back to work for us. With the sunshine it brings out the people. The part of the job we like the most. We get to visit with the campers. With the cool temps, rain and wind everyone seems to stay in there campers. Now everyone is out and walking, biking and visiting. That's what I like about camping. Then when we were at home taking a break we had someone come get us and tell us that there is a coral snake in the road. So Jeff and I went up to see. Thank goodness it was dead. Jeff scooped it up and put it in a bucket. Before that he made sure it was dead.
That was enough excitement for the day. We finished up work and then Jeff made soup and I made cupcakes. Tonight we have a volunteer potluck supper. That started at 6. There was a good crowd, lots of food, fun games, and lots of conversing. It was a fun evening.
Wednesday January 24- Back to work and it was fairly easy today. Not a lot of people leaving. After work I ran to the store. Jeffrey and Maren are coming in tomorrow so I got stuff for supper. I also looked for a trivia game for next month's volunteer potluck. We are helping with the organizing of it.
Thursday January 25- Last day of work this week. We got an early start today.After work and before our company showed up, I gave Ruby a bath. She really likes her bath I think. Jeffrey and Maren arrived and came over to eat. We made stir fry and it was good. While they were gone they worked the big RV show in Tampa. They brought us some info and some free goodies. It's always fun to catch up with them.
Friday January 26- We had crazy wind today. I got my laundry done first thing. Then we went to the mall to look around. I found out they have a new Hobby Lobby. I needed to get some things there to finish up my new grand daughters scrapbook. We found it and I got just what I needed. We also made a stop at Trader Joe's. We got back and waited to hear from Seth. Ashton has a hockey tournament in Wisconsin this weekend. The first game was a win 6-0! Way to go boys.
Saturday January 27- Again with the wind. We went to lunch with Jeffrey and Maren. We ate at the Cheesecake Factory. We had good food and great company. After eating we went to the movie theater. We saw The Post. We liked the movie but it was kind of slow to start. Before heading home we hit The Yardhouse so they could have a beer. I watched.
We headed back to the rig. We were waiting for results. Hailey had a gymnastics meet and Ashton had another hockey game. Ashton had another good game. Seth said Ashton played one of his best games. Hailey on the other hand didn't fair as well. She is a tough competitor and took it well.
Sunday January 28- It's church day. Kip and Amanda came to church to share in an awesome message. Then we went for breakfast after at IHop. It was busy but our food was good. Then Jeff and I went to check out a park, Riverbend. It is a great place to launch your kayaks. Then you make your way down the river and end up at Jonathan Dickinson Park. We think that's something we want to try and get done this year.
We came home and walked the dog and waited for updates on Ashton's championship game. We got to watch a little of it live on facebook. It was another win. So proud of how hard he has been working. Way to go Blizzard!!!
