More Training, More Moving Targets, More Treats

Another day at work on Friday, I expected to learn more in the office, but maybe it was good that Sheila decided that she needed to spend more time outside.  My brain needed some time to digest yesterday’s information.  So I shadowed her and learned how to get the cabins ready to be occupied for the weekend and of course stopping to pick up bits of trash.  This is a very clean park.


    This is what is in the Country Cabin, the smallest.  As you can see, it sleeps four.

There are specials where campers also get firewood, so we also delivered wood to those cabins.  Then back in the office, we just schmoozed with some of the guests.  One of the long term guests, who was leaving, brought us some long bamboo sticks, light weight and strong, that we can use for hiking.  That was so sweet of him. 

I normally will be working most weekends, but Sheila gave me Saturday off to volunteer Face Painting at the church for their Fall Festival.  I needed to be there at nine in the morning.  So after work, and a bite to eat and a little TV, I would be off to bed.

It has been really foggy for the last few days and when I got up, Saturday morning was no exception.  When I got out on TX 80, visibility was at nearly zero.  The speed limit in some places id 65 MPH and I can’t believe that some people actually go the speed limit when visibility is so bad.  I certainly stayed away from those drivers.  I would normally wait until the fog burns off and it did, to a certain extent, by the time I got into San Marcos.  I took my time and still got there in plenty of time.  I got all set up and then checked out all the vendors.   In addition to the face painting, there was the bounce house, and several games that the kids could play.  I think that the kids had the most fun throwing /smashing whipped cream “pies” at/in the faces of the teachers.  Those were some really courageous teachers.

                     This little boy was my last subject of the day.

I was done by noon, after cleaning up,  I just had to do my part and purchased some things from the bake sale and something for my daughter.  Can’t say what it is, because she reads this.  Also not saying which daughter.  Sorry girls!


I had left Angel at home, so I went home to let her out and she needed some cuddling.  I then decided to grill some salmon and vegetables using a Fire Wire.    Thank you, Colleen, for suggesting that I get a small table top one at Wal-Mart.  The timing was just perfect, as the wind picked up right when it was all done and by the time I got everything inside, it poured.  It didn’t last long, but afterwards, I stayed inside, because the table and chairs were all wet.  I then opened up some wine to have with dinner.  It was really nice.  I must have been really tired, as it wasn’t long before I took a nap.  When I woke, I watched a bit of public television for a while and then went to bed,  Yes I reset the one clock that needed it.  All my other clocks reset them selves.

This morning, I was up early anyway, so I did a load of wash before getting ready for church.  This morning there was no fog, so it was clear sailing all the way into San Marcos.  After church there was a pot luck and things left from the bake sale.  Of course I bought more, but gave some away to my fellow workampers.  The rest went into the freezer.

I’m sticking close to home for the rest of the day.  I may even bring the grill back out, but maybe not.  I hope that you are all having a great weekend as I am.

Thanks for visiting
