Grandbabies, Chores, And Stuff

Grandpa has been muzzled for well over a month, but now he’s been let off his leash.  Yep, there’s a new grandbaby in the making.  Our daughter, Mary, and her husband, Joel, will present us with this precious little bundle of joy come September.  Is it a boy or a girl – yep!!!  We’ll know for sure come September.  This means a little change in plans at the end of our w*rking stint in Michigan.  We’ll make tracks post haste toward Virginia just to get in on that new baby smell.  How exciting, we can’t wait. 

Fifteen minutes and twenty bucks later and then there was a safety inspection sticker in the windshield – mission complete.  Now it’s onto planning the rest of our trip throughout Texas.  Tomorrow we’ll be moving onto the Hill Country.  Our rationale is to drive from Livingston to Boerne in one day, but we are leaving Rainbow’s End a day earlier than originally planned just in case we decide to stay over somewhere along the way.

Yesterday, after we got the truck inspected, we made a run to Wally World to pick up some groceries.  Then, yesterday afternoon, we went to Jean’s Corner; a quilt shop in downtown Livingston.  Judy picked up some fabric that she liked.  When you shop for fabric you have to feel the material; does that mean that it’s felt?  I don’t think so Tim!!

By the time we returned home it was Tea Time.  Then Mike, Peggy, Judy and I attended the four o’clock social time at the clubhouse.  Things are much more subdued here than at Rainbow Plantation.  The activities list is no where near as full ours in Summerdale.  The four of us took a short walk around the park after the social time. 

Peggy made some Jambalaya, a garden salad, and some rolls for dinner.  Another fine meal at Peggio’s (pronounced Pee-gee-ohs) restaurant.  After dinner we just sat around and socialized for awhile.

Judy and I wrapped up the day by watching some more West Wing before heading off to bed.  You can only pick up a few “Over The Air” TV stations here at Rainbow’s End and none of them are the major networks (ABC, CBS, or NBC).  We do get Fox, Me TV, and a few more, but nothing with News and Weather.  Mike and Peggy have Dish Satellite so at least we can keep abreast of the storm activity that has been passing through the country.

We’re thinking about cruising about the area this afternoon to see what kind of mischief we can get into.  We’ll probably head out toward Lake Livingston just to see it and for something to do.  Maybe we can find something else entertaining to do along the way so be sure to check us out again tomorrow.

Be Sure To Laugh A Lot and May God Bless  - - - - - - - - -

  4. Congratulations on the new baby, how exiting for you! Now, we've been patiently waiting for your arrival here, not getting into mischief, (well, ok, not exactly true, but it sounded good). We're situated in the beautiful Peach Country RV Park in Stonewall, not far from Boerne. When you get settled, let us know, and I'm sure we can find something to entertain us all. Can't wait to see you and meet Peggy & Mike.

    Travel safe!
