On Monday while Buck and Jeannie were off to medical appointments I got all the laundry caught up and gave the rig a thorough cleaning. And I was also babysitting Barney their darling little furkid ...who was really no trouble at all. Tuesday Jeannie and I worked in her 'shop' most of the day on monogramming and sewing. And what a shop she has..wowsers..I'm thinking if we hauled an enclosed storage trailer instead of the car I could have an onsite shop also..humm not sure he will go for that tho..there must be some way to organize it that the car could travel inside while we're travelling and then it could be my shop when we are parked..I must work on that angle.
Tuesday We had to go to Tallahassee as Jeannie had a checkup appointment with her dr. we were in and out of there in jig time and onto Joann's fabric shop..I should have put a bib on before entering, as needless to say this old quilter was in awe and for once speechless. They had a beautiful singer sewing/quilting machine on sale (98 various stitches) I only had to look at it wistfully and next thing I knew Rick had it in the cart. Woo hooo and it was off to the fabric side of that store. We went to Sonny's for a late lunch / early supper then headed back to the ranch. Thursday it was more shop time for us girls :)..and of course I fired up and tried out my new machine. Friday was D day for us..Jeannie and Buck had to be back in Tallahassee for Buck's Coumadin blood work..for 8am..so our good byes were at 6:45am. We were so sad when we pulled out around 8:30..they invited us to stay 'forever' ..and we sure could have. We really miss them and can't thank them enough for their wonderful hospitality..we just ate and chatted and sewed constantly. What great people..thanks again dear friends for the fantastic visit. We will see you again over the winter for sure.
We arrived Moore Haven at our winter destination The Glades RV Resort around 5:30 pm. We had stopped a couple of times so it should have been roughly a 6 hour drive but man it sure seemed like a 12 hour drive. We were both beat..we dropped the jacks, buzzed out the slides and just crashed in our chairs after supper. Saturday we got ourselves pretty much setup. I organized all the closet and dresser drawers and the linen storage closet, then we were off to LaBelle for some groceries. Sunday we made a trip into Clewiston to visit wally world, and the tractor supply Co. what a neat store that is. There is high speed internet here (included in the price) and guess what it works fairly good!! I'm impressed. The resort is beautiful also has a nice clubhouse and golf course, the marina area is beautiful. I think we will enjoy the winter here.
We did have to make a decision on Tv services. There is no cable here and our bell dish from home will no longer work in the US. I was getting pretty bored on the weekend with only two channels to watch and one of them being constant weather. Today the installer from Direct TV arrived and got us all fixed up. We just take the receivers and dish home with us when we go and put the service on stop until we are ready to head back in the fall. And a good deal too...if you are referred by a friend (yes we were thanks Donna and Ralph) they get a 10.00/mo discount and we get a 10.00/mo discount. So on our deal of 24.00/mo we only have to pay 14.00.
I headed off to quilting group over at the rec center for 9am and worked on a christmas quilt I'm making for the back of our sofa. I hopped online and ordered some fabric from 'fabricdepot.com' wow their prices are good. And its nice to have an address to receive the goods.Supper was left overs from Sunday evening. Homemade mac and cheese and chicken fried steak. Thanks for the recipes Jeannie. After quilting group and lunch it was that other "L" time..laundry..and wow I had four loads..thats a job I'm glad is behind me. Heres a picture that brought tears to my eyes when I received it last evening...
Keep them coming Hannah..we love and miss you also. Sorry I don't have resort pictures yet..I will get some within the next day or two..I guess if I had to complain my only complaint would be that the pool is 90 degrees F...not much of a complaint is it..take care all and be safe out there..
Home is where you park it.
