Pilot Knob RV Resort
On Tuesday, Dec. 14th I was awake at 5:30 and thought that was it for me and sleep. However, the next time I moved, a little pooch was crawling across my belly and it was 6:35. 😉 This time, I felt wide awake and quite hot so took him out and then sat in my recliner to cool off. It was a mild 57F/14C outside. We’d seen the forecast for high winds after 5 pm and until then, a bright sunny day with a high of 73F/23C.

Getting the best of the day, Gibbs and I then took a walk and explored a different area. He knows where the two gates are that lead out into the ‘free’ areas so pushes his nose against them to go through. We walked on the west side of the park first and along the road behind the park and then up the east side and back into the park. I’m sure his day was made when he met little Gabby and Allie. They greeted each other, us, as owners, and moved on. ♥
When we got back, Bill and I had our coffee and tea together and tossed around ideas for our future travel plans. It’s nice to have ideas of what we want to do, what we can afford to do and go from there. There was an hour-long Balance & Strength exercise class at 9, with Diane, and I debated going but it is like Yoga for me. I’m not really keen on sitting in a class doing stretches. In the end, I didn’t go.
My excuse is that Gibbs was on my lap at the laptop and you know how I love that! 😊 There are enough walks throughout our day and they give me more pleasure anyway. So, I got cream cheese out of the fridge to soften and found a recipe for some Chocolate chip cheesecake bars. Yummy, they sounded good and I had all the required ingredients.
While they were baking, I made a Vanilla instant pudding mix and poured it into a pecan pie crust to set. With whipped cream, it will be nice for an alternative. That all used up all but 1 egg and I’d already decided no bacon and eggs today anyway. Bill made himself a sandwich and I made myself a chicken & lettuce wrap for lunch. It was good and I have a bit of the chicken left for one more day. FYI, both recipes turned out great.
With the dishes washed from my mess, I went to the puzzle in the clubhouse at 12:30 for an hour and a half. There were 4 people playing cribbage and the managers were setting up for a staff Christmas party tonight so I quietly worked away and finished the ongoing puzzle. There are 3 done now on the table so I’ll ask Josh tomorrow afternoon to let me retrieve another one from the locked room. 😊
Because of the forewarning about high winds, when I returned, Bill and Gibbs were putting our chairs away for the day. It has already increased its velocity a lot since this morning so I remained inside with my book. Bill and Gibbs were upstairs watching tv and having their snooze. 😊 ♥ Seemed like a good time to have my cup of tea. The book is still good so I managed to get a couple more chapters in before I needed to start supper.

Big sausages cooked in Madame IP with spaghetti sauce, red and yellow peppers and onions. I’d added a cup of broth and once it was all done, 20 minutes later, I cut the meat for serving. I had a potato leftover so fried it up for Bill and cooked us some mixed vegetables. I really enjoyed the whole meal but Bill didn’t want to try the sauce. That was disappointing since I made a pot of it but I guess we’ll have it with spaghetti some night. For dessert we had a piece of the pie but the whipped cream didn't thicken up in my little Pampered Chef 'blender'. 😕 I'll beat it properly tomorrow.
After dishes, the final night for The Voice finale began so we were able to watch it together. This was a good day for all of us.
Thank you for stopping in.
