A few days of rest
We took off in the motor home (better known as the ARE. V.) last Wednesday afternoon for a few days of much needed rest. It was a beautiful, secluded place just two hours away, a very secluded place, but beautiful. Well, it WAS in the country. The nearest grocery store was, well convenience store comes to mind. We take most of what we need, but we always forget a few key ingredients! It was a very secluded place. The camp host was nice. He rode around on a scooter making sure no one was whooping it up too much in all that seclusion . No sir! All quiet after 10 p.m. don't ya know! All I did after 10 p.m. was take the dogs out in the pitch black, dark, secluded place.
We watched a couple of movies I took, walked the dogs, read and let's see, oh yea, rested. We couldn't fish because we didn't have a boat. My brother told us to take a boat, but we already pull our car so we couldn't take a boat too! Maybe next time, he'll come with us and bring his boat.
The other thing we did for entertainment was eat. Now that I'm working out on the Wicked Wii (I renamed the Wii Fit), I always know exactly how much I've cheated as soon as I step back on the little darling. 4.4 lbs. gained. In 4 days!!! Is that even possible??? Talk about adding to depression.
This little restaurant was great.....seafood (good seafood) buffet, all you could eat plus drink and tax $7.00. No kidding...$7.00. We were stunned, but full.
Speaking of depression, we were near the Florida State Hospital, so I decided to go for a ride while hubby was studying. For you that don't know, it was formerly known as an insane asylum. The buildings are from the 1980's and they have been beautifully kept up with rose gardens everywhere. My husband was afraid they were going to keep me and wanted no part of that!
It was the first time in our married life that neither of us had a father on Father's Day. My daddy died 12 years ago, just 6 months after we married, and Russell's dad died in May.
