Camping in one spot-Monday

“After a storm comes calm.”–Mathew Henry


Camping at Wilderness Lakes Thousand Trails in Menifee, California


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!

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.


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!

Camping in one spot on Friday

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” – Gustave Flaubert


Camping Life on Friday at Wilderness Lakes Thousand Trails in Menifee, California

Today we got stuck in traffic driving to our eye appointments in Temecula, California. I forgot my sunglasses so the sun was right in my face most of the time. The traffic took so long to clear out we missed our Starbucks coffee time before our appointments. The horror!

We decided to treat ourselves to Red Robin for lunch since our Starbucks coffee time was canceled. The rest of the day we plan to read, blog, hang out at the pool, jacuzzi and campground.

The pool and jacuzzi were wonderful. We floated on our retirement noodles and had a great conversation with several interesting people at the pool. We met a man that traveled in the Oregon & Washington Thousand Trails this Summer just like we did. Also, a women that was just fun to talk to.  Great Conversation! Great Pool Time!

For dinner, we had stir fry vegetables with shrimp. Also, corn steamed in the pressure cooker.

Happy RVing!

Daily Life

We picked up our general delivery mail today at the Sun City, California post office. Inside our mail was our absentee voter ballots from Texas. Kevin gets excited about voting. I do too. To make a difference in who will be in charge of our country is exciting. I urge everyone to vote. Make a difference!

Kevin needed to fix our rv flag pole so we drove over to the local Lowes. He bought a new battery operated drill for $50.00. I bought two useful herbs to replace my wilted ones on the kitchen counter.


We now have one spearmint herb for teas & mojitos and one cilantro herb for omelets & southwestern dishes.

I made homemade liquid hand soap. It feels soft on our hands but it has to be shaken each time we use it. I like it even if I need to shake it everytime I use it.


Kevin and I did a 5k volksmarch in Sun City, California today. The volksmarch is hosted by the Low Desert Roadrunners. Its a residential volksmarch. The houses were all immaculately mowed. The streets were clean. The residents friendly. Its a 5k or 10k volksmarch in a retirement community. The volksmarch is called Sun City Residential. I’m happy to be volksmarching again.

Happy RVing!

Trumpeter Swan in Yellowstone National Park in 2015

Camping at Wilderness Lakes Thousand Trails in Menifee California


Kevin and I went on a 4k walk this morning, on the walk we tracked down a geocache in the field next to our campground. The geocache doesn’t have a lid so someone put the contents in a storage bag. It was a good find.🙂 On our walk, we saw a Red-tailed Hawk swoop down to the ground for some food. He came up empty.

Daily Life

Kevin and I went to see the movie The Accountant starring Ben Affleck. The movie kept my interest the whole time. I loved the action & the story line. It was worth the price of a movie ticket. I had my hair trimmed today at Great Clips. Kevin checked me in with the Great Clips app then I walked in. This app technology is great because I was first in line for my haircut. I like that my hair feels light after I get it trimmed. In the late afternoon, I read my book for book club and looked up all natural product recipes on the computer today.


Our daughter Katie came over after school for a visit. I’m thankful its convenient for her to stop by. Kevin brought the dog to the vet for Joey’s annual shots so I got to visit with Katie alone for a bit. Katie and I discussed our book for club book. We also made stir fry vegetables & shrimp together for dinner. Then we had a fruit yogurt dessert.

 Happy RVing!

Life Camping In One Place  



This is a picture of our time in Oregon. The water & greenery are peaceful to look at.

A Party

Kevin and I arrived in time for our nephew’s 1st birthday party. My brother’s daughter likes to plan parties. She organized a petting zoo, a nice size inflatable jumpy, pony rides, pumpkin patch, creative foods and great conversation at the party. I’m glad I went. Great People! Great Conversation!

Camping In One Place

On Monday I made smoothies for breakfast. Kevin put a turkey breast in the crock pot for dinner. He scheduled our yearly appointments. I made some future camping inquiries. I also ordered our mail, scheduled veterinarian and groomer appointments for our yorkie. I looked into the elks club expedited initiation at the Tucson Escapee Rally. We’re planning on joining the elks there. This is going to change our 2017 camping plans but its worth the change in our plans. I’m excited to become part of the elks organization.

I’ve become a fan of skinny girl drinks. Bevmo sells this product in Menifee California. I bought a skinny girl mojito mix and a skinny girl white cranberry cosmo mix. Kevin bought some Lagavulin scotch at a good price. We drove to Target. Kevin found an electric blanket to replace our broken one. I found the mint for my low point mojito at Target and priced the woks.

Katie and I enjoy making stir fry vegetables in a pan. My pan needs replacing with a real wok. I found a few woks but not the one that is right for me. Our daughter Katie came over after school. I enjoyed speaking with Katie. She is a gem. I’m hoping to do some hiking with her at Santa Rosa Plateau this holiday visit. We haven’t gone birding & hiking together in awhile.

Happy RVing!
