We got here to Glen Rose, Texas last Thursday afternoon. Here it is, Monday PM - so what the heck have we been doing?
Well, first off... our granddaughter asked me if I'd fix chicken enchiladas for her.... that was about a half hour after our arrival. Of course I'll do that.... what's a Grandma for? But I didn't have a thing on hand for such a meal. In fact, Bill & I have pretty much eating vegan since we got off that cruise.
Nah! No way did we watch what we were eating for THAT week! Well, maybe a little.... but definitely not vegetarian, let alone vegan.
So early Friday morning we made a run to the nearest H.E.B. Now... for those of you who aren't familiar with this Texas grocery store, I'll tell you... it's the Neiman Marcus of grocery! The Nordstroms of the southern grocery stores! But not those outrageous prices those folks charge for clothing etc.
When I write that it takes us at least an hour to grocery shop I'm not joking. It must take me about a half hour to browse through the produce department. Visions of Pico de Gallo, stuffed jalepenos, fresh fruit for breakfast.... oh yeah!.... flow through my head. Oh the peppers! Jalepenos; Anaheim; beautiful colors of bell; poblano.... and tomatoes! plum, roma, vine ripened.... ahhhhhh.... (Why didn't I take pictures of these beauties?) And the cilantro! I'm going to swoon! But I got the ingredients and we all had chicken enchiladas for dinner Friday evening.
Oh, I think I got sidetracked....
I did buy some chicken breasts and some cream cheese along with about a hundred dollars worth of other groceries. Have I ever mentioned that I love to cook?
Okay.... back to our daughters place.
When I first started this blog... way back in January or February of this year... there was some discussion about "mooch-docking". I was kind of shy back then and certainly did not have enough confidence to join in that talk. Sure, I considered it... But y'all know we're at our daughter's place. Not sure how long we'll be here... doesn't matter. We're hooked up to their facilities.
We are so welcome here, you'd think we were royalty. Actually, we'd be welcome at any of our 3 other kid's places, (and do run an extension cord from our rig to their place when we visit)... so actually, no matter where we're at, we are more than made to feel at home.
But, due to various circumstances, we are changing our residence from Ohio to Texas.... we've already changed our medical doctors and a few other things. Tomorrow we'll start the process of vehicle inspection, Texas driver's license etc.
(I will add right here that we'll still vote as Ohio residents this year... absentee... our ballots came in today's mail)
No matter... after the grocery and getting my hair cut and getting prescriptions filled and finding a place for vehicle inspections... and going to church on Sunday... and going to my first doctor appt today... and Bill checking out what all needs maintenance here... and visiting with our daughter and granddaughter... and going to the library (yeah, we have library cards here)... and....
Oh yes... we have some kind of electrical problem with the rig... Bill's working on that. And he's been on-line ... forums.... various other info?.... about why our Hughes net quit working.... (I think he got that fixed today)...
So.. we've been busy. Yeah... we'll get caught up.... I'll start taking photos again.... Bill will be busy outdoors... I read my favorite blogs and try to comment... often just don't feel I have anything interesting to say... but... life is ready to settle down into what is normal for us...
A chaotic, hectic, fantastic adventure....
That's All For Today!
