I made it to Louisiana

The 214 mile trip to Thibodeaux’s Premiere RV today was uneventful.  There were no storms, and I was able to get on the road shortly before 9:00.  With all of the storms in Mississippi and Alabama yesterday, I was thankful for blue skies and only slightly breezy conditions.

We’re parked with full hookups in this ‘gated community’.  My neighbors are all rigs waiting to be worked on, but Emma and I are the only live bodies in the lot.  I don't know smile  The scenery is nothing to rave about, but the price is sure right.  The owner, Billy, did all the necessary measurements for my sun screens this afternoon so the order could be sent in today.  I changed my order, but I’ll explain that further once the screens arrive.

I’m guessing they’ve been busy enough around here that they haven’t had time to mow the meager lawn around the edges of the property.  These ‘weeds’ are growing along the fence.

 

I did get some other good news yesterday.

KAREN got my T-shirt quilt back from the long arm quilter lady.  This is just one panel, but I sure like the quilting design.  I can’t wait to see how this quilt is going to look on my bed!

 

That’s about it for me tonight.  My inner ‘ready to move’ clock had me awake at 5:00 this morning, so after the drive and setting up, I’m about done in.  There were some nice views today along the route including the Louisiana 18 mile long bridge through the Atchafalaya wetlands , but I surely don’t try to take any pictures while I’m driving.  I have enough on my mind just keeping the rig on the road and keeping tract of traffic.  Confused smile

 

Oh yea, I’ve got to mention that I finally tried the Boudin that’s been in my freezer since I last left Cajun Louisiana country.  Holy Mackerel!!  That stuff is just way too spicy for my bland taste buds!  My mouth felt like it was on fire.  Guess I won’t buy any more of that.  Nyah-Nyah

 

Thanks for stopping by…. talk to you later,  Judy

    Glad to see that you made it to LA safely. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of your quilt on your bed. It's looking good... Hope you get a chance to do some exploring this time in LA - Breaux Bridge should be hopping about now and the Lake Martin Nature Conservatory should have lots of birds now too. Enjoy!

  8. Sure am glad you didn't run into any of those storms and that you arrived safe and sound. I definitely won't be trying any of that Boudin stuff either. My mouth doesn't do spicy.

  9. I like seeing an update about the quilt. Beautiful so far--almost too nice to use. Glad you made it to LA safely with no stormy weather to worry about. Enjoy your fine resort where the only cost is the cost of your work done there.
