A Lazy Lovely Saturday!

It's been a long time since we have had a lazy day so this was a real treat!
We came home this morning about 9:00 from spending the night at Amber and Mike's.
Mike came home from a hunting trip in the wee hours of the morning. Amber had been sleep deprived from Thursday night so LD and I stayed over to help with the babies.

Louis Dean is a good burper!

We sure are enjoying these babies!

Logan has such an attitude - even in her sleep!

We came home, had coffee, went back to sleep,
got up and drank some MORE coffee!!
The fact that it has been a rainy day in Texas just made it that much better!

It's a good thing Spider Man is weather proof!

This afternoon I cleaned up the camper - housework doesn't take very long!
This is the Girl Bunk where I can nestle down with a book or take a little nap!
I took off the lace comforter and will take it back home next week.
We have been using quilts in our camper bedroom but that's not working very well.
I decided to layer them on the Girl Bunk.
This one is hand quilted and I bought it at a garage sale for $4!

Next I put on a down filled comforter - makes for a cushy comfort slumber spot!

Then I added another hand made quilt.
I have repaired this thrift store treasure in more than one place!

Finally put the third and last handmade quilt on and added a couple of pillows and I was in business!! The camper mattress no longer feels like a dorm bed!
Not much storage room in here so layering is not only more comfortable but a good place to keep extra covers until we need them!

We did our reading and finally along about 4:00 decided we would get dressed and go someplace! First we drove all around the RV Park just looking at all the different styles, sizes and designs! The park is just about full! Not many vacant spots at all.
There are many high tech buses as well as some 40 foot plus rigs!
I may go for a walk and take some pictures soon.
Talk about style integrated!!
A few have really nice gazebos and one had a fire pit.
You can tell the ones that are really and truly HOME!

We finally left the park! I wanted to do a little shopping and
Louis Dean doesn't mind sitting in the car while I run in and out of stores.
He enjoys people watching.
I found this fragrant bar of soap at TJ Max.
I think it's so pretty I may not even unwrap it for awhile!

Since I had a birthday recently I thought some new skin creams, cleansers and moisturizers would be in order! I need all the help I can get!!
To take the photo I placed these on a Bandolino skirt I plan to wear to church in the morning. Picked it up at Goodwill for $5!

I HAD to get these JUMBO marshmallows!
I will be seeing my OTHER four grandchildren next week and I know they will LOVE them! I'm thinking about getting some hot dogs and buns, chips and drinks and having a cook out. I can just see them roasting a GIANT marshmallow!

Tomorrow will be the start of our 6th week down here!

Louis Dean doesn't have to work nearly as hard these days!
He's watching a little college football as I write.
The rain is pattering down on the roof making a pleasant sound.

It feels warm and snug and cozy in my little world tonight.
I think I'll go use all those beauty treatments and climb into the Girl Bunk with my book to finish out this fall evening!

Such a cozy tale you share tonight!
Your home away from is holds such warmth and charm!
Sweet dreams to you and LD!

Oh my, but your little nest looks very cosy! I love how you have arranged your home-away-from-home!

Kathy said...

I love your handmade quilts. I know the first one is a Dresden Plate pattern, the second one is a star of some sort (not sure which one) and the third one is a Double Wedding Ring. My mother was a quilter and I learned things by osmosis I think.

Your camper is such a cute and cozy home. I could do just what LD is doing -- snuggle down on the sofa and watch some TV while listening to the rain pattering on the roof.

Sounds like a wonderful day ...the rain was nice

Lovely, lovely day!!!

Thank you for sharing it, with us... :-)



First of all...the 'all dressed up and no place to go' post just melts my soul!!! How so very precious your grandbabies are.

And the photos in this post of the little ones are such a welcome sight. They're growing. So so good to see.

And it's great of you two to give your time in helping. Love the spiderman who's weatherproof. Your post is very comforting today Linda.

We are so glad it's y'alls 6th week here!! And thanks for helping me while Mike was gone, I would NOT have made it without you two! This will always be a cherished time in all our lives, we are glad you are here for it and so willingly gave up your lives for awhile to be with us!

Looks so cozy. Sounds so cozy. I really enjoyed this post about your lazy, rainy Saturday.

Your home away from home looks very warm. Love it. And the babies are getting big! Have a good day.

Love your post and blog. As RVers we love to walk around the parks and look at all the rigs. We have a 19 foot travel trailer and now I might just take a quilt with me to make it look as cozy as your camper.

Blondie's Journal said...

You really have created a wonderful home with your magic touch! I could be very comfortable here and your post makes me feel I am!

What a lovely way to spend a rainy day! I haven't been to TJ Maxx in forever. I love their beauty products...something for everything!

I hope you are enjoying today as much as yesterday!



Oh man Linda...if I was close to you, I really would be a volunteer in helping your with your DGrds. They're too much, you are the luckiest granny..quads!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for dropping by angel.

Your camper looks so cozy and comfortable. You've done such a good job making it a home away from home. This time of year is such a good time to bring out those pretty quilts too. Logan's little shoes made me smile! They look like puppies.

Sweet Tea said...

Cozy and cute. Love it, Linda, and the babies are growing and look so cute and healthy. Camelot.

Judy ~ My Front Porch said...

Your post spells contentment! Enjoy...your cozy time in the camper and your cuddle time with the babies. It's all good!

Angie said...

Home truly is where you make it! You have worked so hard to make the camper comfy, cozy & home away from home bur it's all paying off now isn't it? Everything looks great, including Spiderman!

bj said...

OMYGOSH but I LOVE your little home away from home. You have it so cozy and comfy looking, not to mention the fall beauty all over it.
I have a girly spot, too, for my reading, naps, eating in bed, tv' oughta be a LAW that all girls have their own spot. :))

How those babies are can almost SEE them grow, I'll bet.
O, how blessed everyone is to have 4 little healthy babes...all at once. Just a gift from GOD, HIMSELF. I am thankful.

Now, come on over and sign up to win a lucious, $20. Goose Creek candle this week. It would be a great "just because" gift to your Amber. :))

If I could make a camper as cozy as yours I would not mind getting one to stay in while visiting my son and his family.:)
