Cloudy Day Until Friends Arrived

Park Place RV Park

Friday, Feb. 3rd was a cloudy day from the beginning. We were all up by 7:30 and although I woke once at 2 am to realize that I was sharing more than half of my pillow with Gibbs (nose to nose), I still can report a good sleep. Also, the bonus was that this morning before I woke up at 6, I was dreaming of Mom.

A few pretty views on my walk

Bill got ready for the field and I took Gibbs out for a walk. When I dropped him back at home, I pushed myself out for my own walk. It hasn’t been regular by any means and my daily steps are suffering for it. It was a lovely morning with little to no wind and a moderate 40F/4C. It was a great walk around the big block listening to my podcast.

Successes today
Just not on the border LOL

After I had my tea back home, I was ready to go to the clubhouse when Bill pulled in. Not too much was going on at the flying field and it was chilly just standing around. Gibbs was happy not to be alone. 😊 I worked away until almost noon and when Adele joined me, we went section by section and made huge strides in the middle. It’s looking better!

Bacon and eggs with a piece
of buttered cheese bread

We had bacon and eggs for lunch and then I sat and finished yesterday’s blog. I had taken a lot of pictures. It was still cloudy and coolish but when our company arrived at 2, the sun began making an appearance. 

Gibbs really liked our guests
and Ken's lap was an easy mark

Happy Hour with great friends
Gibbs is posing too!

It could have been Ken and Shirley’s presence that made things brighten up too! We had a wonderful ‘reunion’ visit and we covered a lot of subjects until it was time for them to leave.

Gibbs wasn't ready for this one but
the rest of them were

We had grilled sausages for supper with potatoes and a vegetable. It was good but wait! We’re not done there. We had a piece of my homemade cherry pie for dessert. It was very good too! After loading the dishwasher, we watched Fire Country while I worked on my blog. This was an awesome day and we’re hoping to see Ken and Shirley again soon.

Supper was good
Good night!

Thank you for joining us today.


  1. Glad you were able to meet up with Ken and Shirley. It was nice here without the wind, but it was unexpectedly overcast for most of the day. Your pictures of your walk this morning look nice. Beats stepping around rocks all the time.

  2. Great that you had a chance to visit Ken and Shirley. It looks cozy in the gazebo.


  3. Oh Gibbs, so cute how he posed for the picture. It's always nice to catch up with friends.

  4. They made it!! How fun to catch up. It doesn't take Gibbs long to find a lap! LOL. Nice table by the way ... and the gazebo, the perfect place for a happy hour.

  5. So glad you are able to make good use out of the gazebo. Does it help with the blowing sand? Always nice to visit with friends.

  6. Glad you had a nice day for your visit with friends.
    You've inspired me - I purchased a puzzle yesterday of 1000 pieces. I'm pretty sure it will take me a lot longer to complete than yours do. :)

  7. Glad to read Shirley and Ken made it and you had a nice Happy Hour. Your Gazebo looks like the perfect place to spend some time visiting with friends,

  8. That Gibbs...what a character! Hopefully tomorrow will be our time to see Ken and Shirley.

  9. It is always nice to meet up with friends. The puzzle is going very well.

    God bless.

  10. Good pictures of Ken and Shirley. Glad you had a good visit. Becky

  11. We loved visiting with you guys! Hopefully get to get to do it again! Love you! Sent the pic of Ken and Gibbs to Karen tonight. Told her not to show it Mugsy and Lila! LOL!
