Life Happens, Even When I Don’t Blog

I am writing this blog from the back lot of Camping World.  I am finally back to finish the repairs that were started the first week in September.  I guess that I will catch up on all the happening since my last post.


                            The view from my door on a foggy morning.

It’s kind of weird, when a lot is going on, yet I just didn’t want to sit down and write about it.  After the weekend of Debra’s visit I decided on getting out to practice with my new camera.  Below are some pictures of Waco North Campground.  “My Spot” is just beyond that little building (the laundry  room) at the end of the little bridge.  There’s a creek under the bridge (finally with water since the rain that we had) with some pretty flowered ground cover on the bank and the playground on the other side of the creek.  on the other side of the bridge are a couple of the cabins for rent.

I was interrupted by some activity with some of the other Workampers, so had to check it out.  There was a really bad accident on IH35 right in front of the CG.  They used the Jaws of Life to extricate the driver of the truck and he had to be air lifted to the hospital.  The traffic was backed up for miles in both directions.  I just don’t understand why they don’t lower the speed limit with all the road construction.  It seems like every week or so there will be an accident.

On another day, one of the other Workampers was walking her dog, Spanky, and he wanted to play with Angel.  She wanted nothing to do with that so she climbed up on the table to get away.  Spanky is such a cutie and so lovable.

That next Sunday I went to church with my daughter in Ft. Worth and then we all ( the kids too)  went out for lunch at the “Rise and Shine” Café.  (at least I think that is the name of it)


and afterwards I was on a mission to find another charging cord for my IPhone 5 to leave in the truck.  (none to be had anywhere in the Ft. Worth area.)   In our wanderings we found a herd of buffalo and yes, that is a camel near those hay bales.

Since the next day the kids didn’t have school because of Columbus Day, Charlie came home with me.  (Thank you Christopher)  Sandi would drive down on Monday after work to pick him up.  Charlie and I finally found the cord at an AT&T store in Waco. 

I had Charlie dig out my crock pot for a pork roast.  It was real good.  For the liquid I used  apple cider and threw in an apple too.  When I took the picture, I was told that they couldn’t see the pork, so I had to take off all the vegies to find the pork.  (that’s why there are two pics)

For dessert, we had Pumpkin Brownies that Charlie the microwave.  I, of course had to send most of them home with them.  I couldn’t have them tempting me.


That’s Pippa (Sandi’s Mini Doxie)  trying to play with Angel.  This time she took refuge in her tent.  She just doesn’t like to play.

Well, that’s what happened the first week and there’s more, but that will have to wait for the next installment.

Thanks for visiting

  1. You're so right. Life continues even when I really don't feel like blogging or have anything to blog about. And we seem to keep more than busy.

  2. Great pics! The food makes my mouth water because now I know what a good cook you are! :) Can't wait to hear about the "incident" your daughter mentioned in her last comment... I hope everything is okay. And I just now blogged about our weekend so I completely understand about catching up. LOL. HugZ!
