Keeping it simple

It was a quiet day today. I made smoothies for breakfast and then we walked a 3k around the campground. We had a second cup of coffee then started to organize the outside storage bay of the day. This is our biggest storage bay to organize. Our goal is to organize one storage bay a day.

Geocaching

Kevin found a few containers for geocaching in the compartment we organized today. We’re making a letterbox stamp geocache with plenty of room for travel bugs. A letterbox stamp geocache has a stamp inside with a log book for stamping. We could cross list the letterbox geocache with letterboxing.org. We haven’t found the perfect place for the geocache yet. I’ve been looking into all the rules in placing your own geocache on geocaching.com. I made us tea with some fresh spearmint leaves and we had lunch. Kevin played a video game on the tv inside while I read my book outside.

Organizing Inside

I reorganized the storage under the bed after lunch with Kevin’s help. I have a list of all the things under the bed now. I’m hoping to keep the list updated throughout the year.🙂 My last year’s list worked out okay but I had to organize the under bed storage a few times last year to keep things up to date.

Relaxing Time

Kevin and I floated in the pool on our noodles and did some jacuzzi time today. There was a group of men hanging out in the pool talking about the weather and their travels. They were a friendly bunch. Later, we watched our usual youtube videos and Kevin warmed up the left over spaghetti for dinner. I stir fried mushrooms, onions, spinach and a couple of shrimp to go on top. We had yogurt and fruit for dessert while watching tv, reading books, playing words with friends and trivia crack.

Happy RVing!

Walking

It wasn’t raining today so we did a 5k volksmarch in Menifee Lakes. The host of the volksmarch is The Low Desert Roadrunners. The volksmarch starts in a Ralphs parking lot in Menifee, CA. We saw views of Menifee Lakes on the volksmarch and passed our daughter Katie’s college Mt San Jacinto Community College Menifee Campus. Katie is working towards her RN degree. After, the volksmarch we stopped at It’s a Grind for a coffee and split an everything bagel with a great deal of cream cheese on it.🙂

Cleaning the RV

In the afternoon we cleaned out one of the outside compartments in the rv. We’re going to slowly clean out the outside RV compartments this week one at a time. Kevin and I relaxed in the pool on our noodles this time we had the pool to ourselves.

Visiting with Katie

Katie came over for dinner after school. Her car air filter needed replacing so Kevin helped her with it. Its ready to be placed in the car she just needs to put it in when it dries. I made low smart point fajitas and Kevin steamed some corn.We all went on a walk in the campground, some of the rvers have good Halloween decorations at their campsite. I enjoy looking at the decorations in the campground during the holiday season on our walks.

Late Evening

Kevin and I watched Aftermath on tv, read our books, played words with friends & trivia crack. Thats what a day in this retired rver’s life is like. We like our lifestyle and hope to continue with it for many years.

Happy RVing!

Daily

Kevin and I had our usual southwestern egg beater omelet with low-fat cheese, extra bell peppers & onion. Also, 2 turkey sausage and 1/2 english muffin. Kevin cooks the sausage and omelet. I cook the veggies & make the english muffins. Team work!

We did a 4k around the campground. Our fellow campers were outside as usual. I saw a group of American Coots along the pond. They’ve been fascinating me lately.

We had our dental appointments today. I like the dental office staff. It wasn’t terribly expensive. Kevin and I are on a budget so I appreciate that. The fluoride treatment is gross but I understand it’s necessary.

After, our dental appointment we watched a few youtube channels on tv. We have two nieces that have youtube channels. We try to watch their channels so we can keep in touch with them. Kevin and I also found a few RVer’s & Geocachers we like to watch on youtube.

Kevin cooked salmon, onions and mushrooms. He also steamed asparagus for dinner. Then we had peach 80 calorie Greek yogurt, flaxseed, almonds with strawberries, blackberries and blueberries on top for dessert. Kevin and I played trivia crack & words with friends together on our iphones. Kevin played video games on tv and I read my book.

I hope this gives you a glimpse into our daily life as retired RVer’s camping in one spot.

Happy RVing!

Daily

Kevin and I were going on a 5k volksmarch but it started raining with thunder & lightning. We decided to wait for a break in the rain. When it stopped raining for a few minutes we walked around the campground. I enjoy walking outside after a rain. I avoid the rain puddles and breathe the air. It smells fresh.

We need to sell our 2014 Jeep Wrangler back seat so we drove to our storage area to take pictures of the seat. Then Kevin posted it on craigslist. I hope it sells quickly. The storm was beautiful in the late afternoon. We kept the door open and left the screen closed. I could see the rain and hear the thunder. It was intense  but exciting.

I made low smart point fajitas and Kevin steamed broccoli and brussel sprouts in the pressure cooker. Then Kevin made popcorn and we watched Derek Gentry Holistic Detective Agency on tv. I played trivia crack with Kevin and read the book Rebecca for a book club that my daughter Katie started.

Homemade Product Recipe

I needed a few ingredients so we drove to Wal-Mart. The Wal-Mart had the vitamin E & tea tree essential oil I needed to complete two recipes. I finished the coconut oil moisturizer lotion & my honey facial cleaner. I’m so glad were using more natural ingredients.

 

Happy RVing!

Today is Sunday Football day

Football Sunday Update

This means Kevin watches football games and I occupy myself with my hobbies around the campground. Kevin likes to get the crockpot out and make us spaghetti during football day. We can divide the spaghetti into several meals and freeze them. I like to use them on travels days and whenever we need a quick meal.

Sunday hobbies for Janet

While Kevin watched the early LA Rams game I took a walk around the RV park. Then I read my book for book club, blogged, watched youtube videos and fed the birds so I can snap some close-up pictures of them.

Also, I looked at my ancestry paperwork trying to unlock the mystery of my grandfather Hollister. (my dad’s dad) I don’t have much information about him. I’m hoping to learn more about him when I visit Pennsylvania.

When it started raining, I played words with friends & watched Ghostbuster 1 with my hot chocolate in the back of the RV.

Evening Daily Life

We had spaghetti for dinner and banana cream 80 calorie greek yogurt with fruit on top for dessert. We walked the dog around the campground then watched The Walking Dead on tv. Thats it for today.

Happy RVing!

Saturday

Walking

Kevin and I did a 4k around the campground for our morning walk. Our fellow campers were out walking their dogs, jogging and starting their day. I saw a hawk flying over the campground. He was a beauty.

Pool Time

The pool was refreshing today. Our fellow campers were friendly but not as talkative today at the pool. The jacuzzi was full so we passed on our spa time. There were several of us with pool noodles so one of the ladies joked that we should have pool noodle races. lol

Homemade Products

I gathered more ingredients for my homemade product recipes at Super Target. The gathering of the ingredients has been a big process because the ingredients are in several different stores. I’m going to experiment with several homemade products.

I found the lavender essential oil and sweet almond nourishing oil on sale at Super Target. My heels are cracked so I placed 1/2 a lemon on each heel then covered my heels with socks for one hour. My heels feel softer but they still need some work.

Life

Kevin and I walked our yorkie around the park. Then we watched tv and had our 80 calorie greek yogurt dessert with strawberries, blackberries and blueberries on top. I read, played friends with words and blogged before bed. Kevin read, played friends with words & played games on the computer before bed.

Happy RVing!
