Hello and Welcome Aboard to a new “Follower” today. A big THANK YOU goes out to Me and My Dog. I appreciate that you have signed on to read about our fulltime RV lifestyle.
As tired as I was yesterday, I didn’t sleep well and was awake before 5 am. I sometimes do that and lie awake with my brain thinking over way too many possibilities for things to go wrong. Doomsday thinking? But why? I don’t really know but I’ve always been that way. Tonight will be better (maybe).
We took the Grands over to the Westside of Olympia to the store where Mommy works. The Jelly Belly motorhome was going to be stationed there from 10 am to 2 pm. We arrived just past 10:00.
They had a little game to play with a wheel that you spin. Where you land determines which sample of Jelly Belly you might get. Each section had 2 choices…1 good and 1 not so good. For instance one section had licorice or skunk spray as the flavors. You take pot luck with what you might get. Mackenzie landed there and took a chance. She got the licorice flavor. I took a spin and landed on Centipede or Cinnamon. I wasn’t so lucky….I got a Jelly Belly that tasted like a squished bug smells. Bruce ended up with a Moldy Cheese flavor J.B. It was fun and they didn’t taste so bad you couldn’t take it, although they had a trash can there for spitting it out if you wanted. Zoey got one with Wild Berry flavor, but I can’t remember what the bad choice was. A lady before us got a flavor called Pencil Shavings and she said it tasted like it would if you bit into a wooden pencil. How do they get those weird flavors????
It was a fun little experience and we all got free sample packets. They have a VW beetle painted up with Jelly Belly candy and their logo. I guess this is the toad for the RV.
We bought a bunch of fresh produce inside the store and cruised around by the bulk foods department where they had the Jelly Belly candies marked 50% off for today. We allowed the girls to pick out some and put into their own bag. Our daughter, Stephanie, is manager of this part of the store, including a few other small departments.
We paid for our groceries and said good-bye to Mr. Jelly Belly. It was almost lunch time by the time we got finished with all of this activity.
After lunch Zoey wanted to play Go Fish. I remembered a little idea I saw recently in a magazine at the Great Clips salon while waiting for a haircut. Small kids have a difficult time holding several cards in their hands while playing a game. So, you take an empty egg carton and turn it upside down. Take an exacto knife and make a cross cut on every little egg cup. The kids can then slip a card into each cross cut and it becomes a card holder. It worked well for Zoey today.
That’s it for a nice Friday afternoon. We get a free weekend and then 2 more days of babysitting. So much to do to begin preparations for “blast off” in a few days.
Until next time…..so long for now!
