On Monday, April 1st I woke up with the foggy knowledge that Bill was getting up. He later told me it was 6:30. I didn’t want to jinx my sleep by looking at the clock so rolled over and went back into dreamland. It was then 7:30 when I woke again. I guess I really dropped off, didn’t I? I got dressed and knowing it was another cold morning (27F overnight) I layered with some long johns. Yesterday was a bitter cold walk. Today would be warmer because I didn't notice any wind.

Upon his return, Bill texted so I began making poached eggs on rye toast. It was a quick meal and then we were on our way into town. Back home, we went through the process for our friends, Ken and Kim, to come into our park as a guest under our membership. They were driving from Williamsburg, Ky today and planning on 'overnighting' in Ohio – somewhere. This will be great as we’d all enjoy seeing them again. Between Coast to Coast, the park reservation line and the office, it was all set up.

It had warmed up considerably and with the sun, the present 39F seemed a whole lot warmer. Beautiful day if you stay in the sun! I felt good that I was able to publish the last 3 of my blog posts this morning, finally caught up to date. Bill and I walked to the office and informed them about our friend's arrival after office hours and told Ken that we would meet them at the front entry gate to show him where we were both parked. The couple beside us pulled out this morning so it would be nice if they liked that site.
|He wasn't bothered by us at all|
I asked Pat if she wanted to walk and we strolled around the perimeter of the park. It was cool but we were dressed for it. We both enjoyed getting out together again. When I returned, it was just after 3 and of course, Clemson was there to tell me it was his turn. I took him down our lane to the north, around the clubhouse, along the mini golf course where people were playing. We reached the office building and once he hit the pavement, his burst of energy took over. A staff said he was acting like a 2-year-old and couldn’t believe how old he was.

What a pretty picture!
Back at the Suite, I took my crochet out and tried to decide what to make with the wool leftover from the slippers. I decided on an infinity scarf and sat to work on that. For supper, I’m planning another Instant Pot meal with chicken thighs this time. I’ve done boneless thighs before but these have bones so it will be interesting. We’re not keen on setting the Weber up, neither of us and we probably won’t have to. We have enough inside meals to prepare.

At 5:45 Kim texted that they were off I-75 so Bill hopped in Black Beauty and drove up to meet them. Fortunately, Ken liked the spot between Rob and Pat and our site and pulled in easily without having to unhook the car. It was so great to see and to get just one more hug from these two. They are from Ontario as well and we didn’t think we’d connect again until summer. This was a bonus and a nice surprise for all of us.

It was so good!
Perfect and easy again. No dessert required tonight! We cleaned up dishes, watched some Jeopardy and then turned on The Voice. We have a few programs to watch and some recording so I concentrated on publishing this post with tv in the background. This was a great day, we got some walks in and caught some rays while doing it.

Get this, the sun set at 7:52 pm.
Thank you for your patience while I caught up on my blog posts over the last few days. I truly value you, my followers.
