For the very first time EVER, I felt like I was ready to go home.
Not that I wouldn't have loved to stay longer, but I felt rested, relaxed and ready to get back to the 'real' world. The fact that this is Dean and Sherry's 'real' world just makes it that much better.
We are grateful that we get to visit their world.
Louis Dean truly enjoys this time with his son.
I love to see them together!
While they talked, I worked inside the camper.
I like to leave it all clean and in order for our next visit.
I took off the blue denim sofa cover and replaced it with red denim.
It's a Ralph Lauren duvet cover that I cut apart in order to make two pieces for the sofa.
Goodwill for $5.
Since it is only 31 feet, it doesn't take long to get it ready to leave.
It takes exactly one hour from the time I finish my coffee to when we are ready to drive out the gate.
Linens all changed and lots of laundry to bring back home.
Lock 'er UP!
I had to blur me because when we kissed at the door, I smeared my lipstick all over ME!
I can't see any on HIM!
The horses were up there to say good bye....and that gravel is insurance that if it rains, we can park there and still get out.
The big white truck is ready to roll.
Can you see Louis Dean waving?
Headed down County Line Road.......
Beautiful scenery all the way!
We stopped for lunch in Hillsboro and then rolled smoothly on to Irving.
We took some back roads to Hillsboro and then picked up I35 to I20 to Spur 408.
Louis Dean likes to exit on Shady Grove to get off the highway and we drive across South Irving to get home. He unloads and I unpack and put up. Win! WIN!!
The laundry was started - load after load - and I took a long hot shower and then he soaked in a hot tub until he came out looking like a prune! Our evening entertainment was catching up with The Alaskan Bush People!
Today started with coffee and reading and news! We had not seen ANY news for the 10 days we were gone. Didn't miss much.
I started taking Christmas down in the kitchen and stopped to make us a good lunch!
I love those Facebook recipes and I saw this one early in the day.
Remember all those frozen eggs I had gathered?
They made a delicious sandwich!
Here is the link to the recipe:
Although I forgot to add the cheese!
Still very good!
Between keeping the laundry going, I cleaned up the kitchen and packed away all the decorations - in that one room.
I still have the den, living room, foyer, front porch and gazebo left to do!
What takes long in the kitchen is changing out all the coffee cups and glassware.
I have to run them through the dishwasher before I can put them back in the cabinets.
The tree is gone and all is done.
I swept the floor and called it a day.
For now I will bask in the glow of yet another CLEAN room!!!
I lit THREE candles in there to celebrate!!
