‘Tis a Wonderful Day in our Neighbourhood

Pilot Knov RV Resort, Winterhaven, Ca

On Friday, Dec. 17th we followed our usual routine. Up at 7, Gibbs and I went for our walk and returned for our breakfast with Bill. Gibbs had his usual kibble, Bill had toast and jam and I decided to blend some banana and strawberries with the yogourt and cream for a smoothie. Hmmm, it was quite good and filling too!

A beautiful sunrise

Bill had something to pick up at the hobby store in Yuma so left at 9:30 and then I walked up to the clubhouse for Ladies Poker Pool for 10. Gibbs looked after the house while we were gone. Bill returned home first and I walked back around 12 noon. I actually won 2 games, altogether now “Woohoo!”. That just doesn’t happen for me so of course the ladies teased that I have been practicing. 😊

Shouldn't something be happening here?

We discussed lunch and agreed on Cinnamon rolls, courtesy of the Pillsbury doughboy. I baked them though so deserve some credit! I only eat 2 of mine, saving 2 for another morning. They were good. After dishes, Bill and Gibbs went for their snooze and I slipped back up to work on the puzzle. I was pleased to find Elaine there and we caught up where we left off the other day.

Still Momma's boy?
Daddy is upstairs so you tell me πŸ’–

We worked well together, conversing the whole time and made a huge dent in the finished product. At 3:15 we both left for home. Each time we meet, we learn a bit more about each other. The joy of this lifestyle. At 4:30, I packed our ‘go’ cooler bag with utensils and dishes for supper. Tonight is bbq supper night and for $6/pp we get our fill, cooked and cleaned up by others. πŸ˜‰

Picture perfect moment

and sits and barks for us to get it
Of course, we oblige

My choice tonight was to have a hot dog with the mac & cheese and blueberry crisp. We always get a bag of chips and mine came home with me. We had a nice visit with American friends, Diane, Don, Judy and Al tonight. Gibbs was waiting for us at the door when we returned and got his supper right away. Now the whole family has been fed (and watered).

A nice supper tonight
with nice company

We spent the evening watching tv and I worked on finishing my post. This was another wonderful day here in the park.

I needed an extra picture so I went searching
