It’s hard to believe that it has been a week since my last post.
Every day I get up and go to work at 5:00 am, yes every day, but it isn’t as bad as it sounds. I’m usually up that early anyway and it doesn’t take long to do the work. The rest of the day is mine. Most of the time I get home and if I haven’t eaten, I fix breakfast, then watch the news or read, or maybe take a nap. I’m usually in bed by 10:00 pm.
One day last week, while I was out, I found a youth group that was having a fund raiser, Car Wash. Since my truck really was dirty and at the park, they only allow you to wash vehicles on Thursday, I just decided to give them a donation and have the kids do it. They did a really good job and even did the inside windows too.
All bright and shiny!
Earlier in the week I was invited to join several Pleasant Valley Resort (PVR) residents for lunch at Peter Piper Pizza. There were about a dozen or more that showed up and I was introduced to several people, but I’m sure that I won’t remember all there names.
I just finished the next to last book in Jean Auel’s Clan of the Cave Bears series, Shelters of Stone. Even though reading tends to put me to sleep, it took less than a week to finish. In between reading, I was checking out things to do around the area and in the park. There’s quite a bit to do here at the park to keep you busy. There are a few things that interest me, but most of the residents here are French Canadians, about 95%, Although many speak English, I still feel a bit on the outside when they participate in things and are speaking French.
Even the at the Jams, they sing it’s in French. I thought about taking beginning Guitar, but I think I will hold off on that until another time.
I was going to go to water aerobics yesterday and today, but it was still a bit chilly. Instead, today, I checked out the ladies that are doing sewing projects and see if there was anyone that knew anything about Swedish Weaving. Tuesday I checked that group out and decided that it would be something to learn. Yesterday I went in to McAllen on a quest to get the Monk’s Cloth, needles and yarn. Here’s what I came home with.
While visiting with the sewing ladies, I worked on the fringe on the monk cloth. I ‘m not sure what pattern I will use. I would like to find a Celtic Knot pattern or I may have to make one of my own.
One day last week I checked out an Open House at Bentsen Palm Resort where Carol of were moving on works, but was unable to connect up with her. Oh, Well, maybe another day. One of these days I want to get over to the Bentsen Palm Birding Center that is nearby the park that she’s at. I would like to get some pictures of different birds, flowers and maybe butterflies.
I have been having issues with my laptop lately. It seems to take forever for it to load everything, so I have asked around here in the park to see if there was anyone that might be able to help. I need to get started on printing sublimation ink transfers for a way to make a bit of $$$ to supplement my income. One of my neighbors came over to help. He thinks that it may have something to do with Live Writer. (I hope that that is not the case.) He had to leave, but will try to figure it out later. I think that I have a couple of programs that are running that I thought weren’t, are running. Now I have to relearn them to start working on some projects that I put on hold.
It has been a somewhat busy week and Angel is taking it in stride. I hope that you are all doing well and having a good week. Good night all. (or is it Y’all?)
Thanks for visiting
Susan and Angel
