My Saturday

Today was our last day in site T-5 so we packed up and moved to site J-6 where we will be for a week - still in the same campground so it wasn't a strenuous move. We got here and set up and it was still only around noon so I got laundry ready and headed to the laundromat. There are 3 of them in the campground each their own little building with 3 washers and 3 dryers and 2 folding tables in each as well as some chairs and magazines. After loading up the machines, I called my sister, Margie in Ottawa and got to talk to my nephew, Nick and my niece, Danica. Bonus!

They are both very busy, Nick is finishing up his last semester to be a paramedic and is now travelling with the paramedics, school is finished for him. Danica, too, has news but I can't post it yet because she has some people that she hasn't told yet. Margie is doing well at her new job and was asked this week if she wanted to work full time. She has decided at this point that she doesn't want to do that. John has seen a neurologist about his back pain and is now on some new drug for the pain. He is to have another test done at the Civic and will be scheduled for an MRI.

The good/bad news is that it snowed 8 inches last night in Ottawa and the guys had just come in from shovelling wet, heavy snow/compared to sunny, breezy 65F here in Brenda, AZ.

When we were out this morning before moving sites, we filled up our propane tank and there was a lady in the parking lot selling citrus fruit so I got some oranges and grapefruit. I just had an orange and it was really good. The prices were good too - 4/$1!

After finishing the laundry, Gordon, Bib and I took a short walk over to the BLM land and took a few photos so I would have something to post for today.
My work for today isn't done though. When it gets a little cooler I have to defrost the refrigerator. I'll put a table outside and put the milk and stuff out there. It did get down to around 25F last night so it should be cool enough. Sure glad it warms up during the day!

I also just called my sister, Betty who lives in Toronto and got to talk to her and her husband, Garth. Amazing that I was able to reach everyone today! They are busy planning trips to Spain, Florida and their Amazon cruise all to take place over the next 3 months.

That's all for today. Photos today are of Bib and I in the little park close to our location and our new home at J-6. The sites here are huge!


  1. Hi Sandra,

    8 inches...don't I know it! Thankfully my husband is the one who shovels - I could never do it!

    I know some paramedics here in Ottawa and they love their job. I hope Nick loves it too!

  2. Hi Sandra,
    I saw your comment at MB's blog. How nice that you can enjoy winter in the sun. My in-laws drive a huge recreation vehicle and roam the US South all winter long as well (they are Amricans from SC) and it looks like a fun way to spend your retirement years.
