Just chillin’ out

Well I’m still here at Jojoba Hills Escapee park in Aguanga, CA.   I’ll be pulling out on Tuesday to head for Oregon.  It’s been a very relaxing little vacation for me, and I’ve gotten a lot of work done on the rig.  It’s been washed and waxed.  The annual maintenance has been done, and the dash air conditioner has been fixed.  I’ve even had time to give it a good spring cleaning inside.

After five months of not having cell service, I’ve also been able to catch up with all of my kids on the phone.  Not much else to report. 

As you know, I’ve also taken a respite from blogging.  Mundane chores just aren’t very interesting.

I did get together with several other bloggers for a happy hour last Sunday.  I think this was the first happy hour I’ve ever attended.  I guess I need to get out more.  Disappointed smile

Gypsy had a post the other day about getting ready for her grandson’s first communion.  That brought back memories to me of my confirmation in the Lutheran Church when I was twelve.  There was a small celebration back at my mother’s house after the service.  I remember that one of my relatives gave me a gift of seven pairs of underpants.  Each one was embroidered with a day of the week on them.  Not sure what that had to do with being confirmed, and even at that time I wondered what kind of gift that was to give a twelve year old.  I would have rather had a baseball glove.

Of course, my crabby next door neighbor, Mrs. Bites, also informed me that I would have to give up playing baseball now since I was ‘confirmed’.  I’m not so sure those were the ‘good old days’.

Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later,  Judy

  1. Well I hope that those day-of-the-week undies weren't regifted. ;-) I remember when those were popular, but for a 6 or 8 year old, not a 12 year old, and definitely not appropriate as a confirmation gift.

  3. A little difficult for a 70 year old male to comment on your underpants but wishing you safe travels to Oregon & nice you were able to get in some productive rest & relaxation time at Jojoba Hills.

  4. Sounds like you're getting a lot done during your catch-up time. We usually have a long list of things to get done and it always feels good to get them crossed off that list and get ready to move on again. Of course, a few entries on the list are fun things, not just maintenance! (call it maintenance of the mind and spirit ;-)

  5. 5 months without cell service? Not sure I could reup for that. I seem to need to call about some problem or another all the time. That's just amazing, 5 months. Really great to be in one place you like and relax and get big things accomplished. I like that idea. Maybe I wouldn't have to make so many calls if I'd take care of things all together. I guess my memory isn't as good as yours. I remember confirmation in the Lutheran Church when I was about 12 or something like that but only vaguely and don't remember gifts at all. I don't think I was even baptized until my little brother was born. I was 7. My parents weren't attentive church goers before that. Maybe my brother was such a handful they thought they'd better get help. LOL!!

  7. I could use some day of the week skivvies to keep track of which day it is. Days sort of blend in together for me being an old retired fart. :cD

  11. We have never done "Happy Hour" either...
    You certainly have a long list of things checked off the to do list. Always a great feeling!
    Safe travels next week! I am so excited about you going to Oregon. We haven't ventured that far north west, yet! If Joe gets a clean bill of health in November, that changes everything!

  12. No cell service for 5 months was shocking but NOT as shocking as your first happy hour! How did you ever survive without either?

    I remember those day of the week undies. Never wore the right ones! I also had dish towls with the day of the week...never had the right day out there either!

    Safe travels to Oregon.

  15. We don't do a lot of happy hours but they can be a good jaw fest. I know what you mean about not blogging when it's just everyday stuff. Have a wonderful time in Oregon.

  16. Baseball and underwear...have no idea what crabby neighbor lady was thinking! I think Phyllis (above) has the right idea, and I'm sure you DID wear them while playing baseball!

    Safe travels up to Oregon. Can't wait to see what you find there. I've never been and am looking forward to seeing it!

  17. I've told several folks about the day-of-the-week panties, and how I always wanted them but never got them. It's a good laugh though. I like happy hours but have cut down on drinking so much i'd be half afraid to go to one. I guess they are a good chance to relax and talk to people. Safe travels.

  20. I played baseball all the tine, I was the pitcher! I always wanted those days of the week panties and never got them. I was so jealous of friends that got them:)

  21. Glad you had a nice time, chilling out, there. Safe travels to your post in Oregon! I can't wait to follow along with your time there!

  22. I too have no cell service where I'm at, however, I do have internet so I can text and use Face Time on my I Phone. The park pays for a basic land line, so my kids can call me.

    Safe travels to Oregon.
