We Have A Plan

Yes indeedy, we have a plan. While in the RGV we had planned to take our time getting to Springs, seeing some of the sights along the way, over a period of six weeks or so. Then we would have been here till the 1st of July and we would have headed toward Salt Lake and then made our way up to Idaho and Yellowstone. But that fell apart when I decided that my tumor problem should be taken care of here, although it turned out thankfully to be nothing, it did do in our plans. So we have decided that we would just make a run to California and see our son and his family. We did not get to spend too much time with him when we were there last year as he started work on a power plant and was working 12 hour days, 7 days a week, so it left little time for visiting. Feels good to have a plan.

Our time here in Springs has flown by, the weather has changed so many times, we could have been here for months. The last few days have been wonderful though. Spring has defiantly sprung. We did get to meet up with Jesse and Ginger, RV-ing in the Kram-a-lot-Inn for dinner the other night. Tried our favorite Chinese place, and we had not eaten there since last year, so little worried that it might not be what it used to be, but it was wonderful. Ever in Springs, The Coal Mine Dragon, well worth the trip. It was good to see these “youngsters” again. They are work camping not too far from here, till October.

Finally broke down and got a Kindle, although have not used it yet, it is being charged as I write. I’ve gotten a few new toys here, a bullet mixer, tiny camera, oh yes, then I stumbled onto Penezys Spices. Which caused me to take another trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond (darn) for the magnetic spice containers.

Since I had no metal in the kitchen I attached two cookie sheets to the end of the cupboard and they make a great storage area for the spices, plus they are very visible. Notice that the labels are extra large print, lol.

Roinn and Kylee. He is a wonderful big brother, where as she is a total princess. Pink is her color, wonderful kids, but they are growing up way too fast.

Plans are good and the best thing about them is the ability to change them at any time :)
