Doing a Bunch of Nothing

Monday we just stayed home.  The weather has been very hot for this region so we decided to stay inside and keep cool.  I put a chuck roast in the crockpot to try another Facebook recipe.  It was fine but not any better than my usual recipe.  Ted said he likes them both.

Yesterday we met Kara at the beauty salon and everyone got a haircut, except Ted went next door to the barber shop.  We left to stop at the grocery before Kara followed us out to have dinner.  It was a combination of all sort of leftovers because I needed the room in the refrigerator.   We bought ice cream at the store for the kids as a treat and after dinner they all went home.

Yesterday Ted, Sam and Bill went to the gun club while Kara and I went dress shopping again.  If I don't find something else I will go with the one I found back home in either sapphire blue which is lighter than we want or emerald if we ever get to see a swatch of it.  Our plans almost got shot down when she was called in for a meeting but then it was decided her attendance wasn't necessary for the subject at hand.  

Here are a few photos from Lynn and Jim's visit that I didn't post the other day.  

The kids playing Hedbanz.  Mia is trying hard to figure out which Disney character she is.  Note the huge area for the kids to play.  It is a big circle with no one parked behind you.

You can see one of the best features of this park in this photo.  Two parking spots for vehicles.  That is so convenient and makes the next camping spot a good distance from you.   During the week there are 4-5 campers here with us, more on weekends.

I have figured our route to Williamsburg with an overnight in Zanesville and a second night in Staunton, VA where we will meet up with Eileen and Tom.  From there we move to American Heritage Park for two weeks.  How we get home from there, where we stop, who we see, and what we do is up in the air.  If we return home from a more northern route instead of I-10, we may meet up with the Boomers, our camping club, in Corsicana for Labor Day.  Have wheels, will travel.

But the place which you have selected for your camp, though never so rough and grim, begins at once to have its attractions, and becomes a very centre of civilization to you: "Home is home, be it never so homely."  ~ Henry David Thoreau

Looks like you are having a wonderful time visiting with family. I don't know about the heat up your way but it has been HOT, HOT, HOT and RAINY, RAINY, RAINY - which leads to STEAMY, STEAMY, STEAMY! I understand just wanting to stay inside - it has been too hot for the little one to go outside - then there are the thunder storms (I hate lightening!). Have a good time and enjoy yourself no matter which way you decide to go home.
