Pilot Knov RV Resort
So, waking up on Friday, Dec. 31st we were both ready to say goodbye to 2021. There have been a few very good things that happened, some that I’ll mention here today but it has also been a disheartening year for other reasons, not even worth mentioning. Haven’t we wasted enough time talking about, listening to and focusing on Covid-19 and everything related to it? Our opinion is YES!
We received a fair bit of overnight rain
Gibbs and I went for a shorter walk this morning because once we got out there, I realized we were walking in a misty rain. It wasn’t a cold morning, low 50’s (10C), and there was no wind so other than the dampness it was a nice walk. Here we are, back to wiping some little paws again but I’ll tell you that it is a lot easier wiping down his fur now that it is so much shorter. 😊
When we returned, Gibbs waits on the step for his Daddy to come downstairs
We had our coffee and tea and at 9:45, I walked up to meet the ladies for Poker Pool. 2 ½ hours later, I returned home with a smile on my face. I won!! No $ is involved, which is why I play, but I had the winning score over all 7 ladies. Now that made me feel pretty darn good since some of them have been playing pool for years. When I walked in, Bill had lunch cooking on the stove. Be still my ♥. That meant a lot as he doesn’t generally cook our bacon and eggs.
This is the puzzle I'm working on
When I started at it today
How I left it at 4:30
After eating and doing dishes, he went upstairs with Gibbs and I got busy cleaning. Gibbs chases the vacuum so closing the door to downstairs was a help. I vacuumed and washed the floors. I’ve only been dusting with my Norwex dust mitt for the most part so today, I got out my cream polish and gave the island and other woodwork a good wipe down. It has been neglected. Moving on to the coffee table, I removed the baskets from underneath and scrubbed the shelf. I used that plastic nubby shelf cover and it stuck. ☹ I won't do that again but I was trying to prevent the seagrass baskets from scratching the wood.
The sky was beautiful on my walk back from the clubhouse
The stainless steel fridge got a wipe down too, leaving it gleaming and then I kissed my sweeties goodbye and walked up to work on the puzzle. It has been a headache so far, as I wasn’t able to fit the border together. Someone else had added some pieces but they didn’t have any better luck either. Today, a light bulb came on. I switched a couple of sections and voila! The border was done and I was able to contribute a lot of pieces before heading back home at 4:30.
Our little guy was so tired!
I met up with Allie and Gabby so we chatted for a few minutes. I will miss seeing them even though we don’t hang out together. This morning, everyone was asking if we were going to the NYE party tonight. It isn’t really a ‘party’, per say, or maybe we’d consider it. It’s a Happy Hour that starts at 5, bring a snack to share, then there will be music and probably Karaoke until 10 pm when they watch the ball drop. That’s midnight in New York. Time for us old folks to go home to bed. 😊
I see two snoozers, getting ready for 2022?
Bill and I don’t enjoy this kind of ‘party’ especially with fellow rv’ers that we barely know. It isn’t a good time to get to know anyone either. So, we’ll stay home, have our own supper and spend a quiet evening together. We can watch the ball drop here in a much more comfortable setting. ♥ For supper, we had toasted bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato sandwiches. Bill’s suggestion since tomorrow we will have a big meal.
I think this is the fattest hummer that I've ever seen!
He finally visits the feeder
After our yummy sandwiches, we cleaned up dishes and watched old movies. Pretty Woman, Notting Hill and who knows what else? This was a good day and our Suite is quite a bit cleaner. I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing than spending the evening with my two Sweethearts. My life is full of blessings; our family, friends, health and enough resources to do what we want in life. 😊
A simple sandwich for our New Years eve supper. Drinks and snacks later.
a lovely sky this evening too.

Patsy I was just reading online today 1.01.22 that Canada has restrictions on food products you can and cannot bring into Canada. Check it out before you stock up as I would feel bad if they took it away from you at the border. Please pass this on to others so they know as well!ReplyDelete
Thank you Kathy. We will check it out.Delete
