Almost busy kind of day....

Our Location: Bluegrass Rv Park, Foley, Alabama

Pics taken with my phone

Overnight was very warm, should have kept the windows open but only had the vent open. It was very humid today as well, the fog this morning making the air seem very misty and damp. Warm today but overcast, not nice for sitting outside but nice enough to have the big door open until after dinner tonight. 

After breakfast we immediately loaded up the 'rental' with our dirty laundry, filling the entire rear hatch. It's either a very small hatch or we have a lot of laundry. I'll let you decide which it might be. ~laugh~ From that chore we headed out to S. Pecan Street dead end section to do our daily walk. It was misty and humid but we managed to get our two trips accomplished in just over an hour.

It was 9:50 am when we finished up our walk and making a left hand turn onto Michigan Ave we headed about a half mile or so to the laundromat. Once we had our stuff all loaded into the washers I stopped to chat with Carol of Neil and Carol, friends of Ed & Sue, our neighbours. They are all leaving on Saturday to head to Texas to visit with Sue's brother and sister for a month. Neil & Carol, Ed & Sue are real life neighbours in their home state of Missouri, living literally next door to each other. 

It was noon before we finished the laundry and started to load it in the vehicle. A quick trip home to hang up and put away the clean laundry netted us a finish time of 12:30 pm. It was back into the car to head to the train museum as today was the day we were sure we'd manage to get there in time to see everything. Hm.....sign on the door....sorry but we're closed today from 12:30 to 1:30 pm for a meeting. ~laugh~ Can you believe that? Rick Ferroni, Murphy is still here. ~laugh~

We left the Train Museum heading south to the Wally World as we needed a few groceries. We wandered around the store for a bit, picking up a few things, and then a few more, then a few more and before we knew it the cart was half full. Ever happen to you? ~laugh~ You know it does, you just don't want to admit it. 

Home to put away the groceries and settle in for the rest of the day. It was already 1:45 pm. Lunch was eaten inside today as the sun never did make an appearance. Reading, I finished my book and started a new one. Oh no, I've read this one, started another new one, oh no, deja vu, read this one too. ~laugh~ Time to head to the clubhouse to see if I can find some new ones to read, as Riley is using my Kobo. Trip to the dumpster to rid the Igloo of the chicken carcass Riley cleaned for lunch. You know she loves those rotisserie chickens from Walmart.  Stop at the clubhouse to trade some books, managed to sit down and chat with Miss Charlotte and Miss Charlotte for a bit, had a quick hello with Bill and Eileen as well. Yes, there are two Miss Charlotte's here.

Left the clubhouse, came home and did a few emails that needed my attention.  I even got out the iron and some starch to make some shirts look like they should instead of all those curled up hems. A couple of pants legs as well needed some attention. After that I read some more, looked up and it was time to start prepping dinner. Within 10 minutes of finishing the prep work it was time to start cooking. An hour later, we're enjoying our meal. 

Tonight we had Santa Fe Rice, Basil-Thyme Veggies, Smokey Bourbon Chicken Breasts. I can tell you from personal knowledge it was excellent. No left overs, so you will have to take my word for it. ~laugh~ 

Dinner was yummy.....

Quick clean up inside and outside, trip to the dumpster, home to read a bit more, and finally head off in our own  direction. 
A belated Happy Birthday to my friend Roger. His birthday was yesterday but it slipped my mind until late last night. Roger is a southern gentleman and an extremely nice guy. Happy Birthday Roger!!!

A nice day, nothing major or exciting but still nice. Hope you enjoyed your day as much as we enjoyed our day.

Until next safe, take care.....
