This weekend saw us getting back into our old groove of life in Tumwater. The weather was great, we spent time with family, I visited my special friend Dorothy, and this morning we went to our usual church. We go to church most of the Sunday’s when we are out on the road traveling, but none seem to be as terrific as our Tumwater United Methodist Church. It’s a great place for us to be on Sunday mornings.
Saturday morning I went down to where we used to live in our sticks-n-bricks to visit Dorothy. She is a wonderful lady in her mid 90’s and she and I became good friends after my Dad passed away in 2007. I never forget her when we travel and send her postcards and e-mail messages. She is awesome and she is one of the older folks that “gets our lifestyle”. Some people we know almost come right out and ask, “when are you guys going to get over this RV thing?” Dorothy totally thinks that Bruce and I are doing the right thing by taking time to pursue our dreams together. She told me Saturday, “your life is wonderful”. I think Dorothy is correct.
On Saturday evening as I was fixing dinner, Mackenzie phoned to say she and Zoey wanted to come and play at our house. OK, that’s fine…..come on over! Stephanie drove them over and they brought a lunch box with their own dinner in it. We didn’t have anything fixed for them, so that was a good idea. While I finished cooking, Zoey dug the play kitchen stuff out of the toy box we keep for them. She got dressed up and began doing her style of “cooking” with the plastic food. She had a lot of fun.
Mackenzie is getting a little bored with the whole play kitchen thing since she is almost 9 years old, so she went right to the computer. She is learning to play Chess and likes to have Papa help her. She is doing a great job of learning the game. She also likes to play the card games on the computer, too.
A lot of concentration going on here…….
After Zoey got tired of being a chef with plastic food, she dug out the art supplies and began creating a masterpiece for us. One rule we have here in our small house on wheels is that the girls have to clean up one mess before they go on to the next activity. It is the only way we can keep our sanity with 4 people and a dog in this small area.
Next Saturday night we are having a sleep over for the girls. Two weeks after that we are taking them on the first of two camping trips for the summer. I know we’ll have fun. We start our first official babysitting day on July 1st and that will be interesting.
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Until next time…….so long for now!
