August 13, 2009 Thursday

I finally have my puter back! Fixed for free but it was so new there shouldn't have been anything wrong with it in the first place. That's the way it goes. It's working great and I'm so happy to have it back.

We're still at Lake Sawyer RV Resort in Black Diamond, WA. Should be here another two weeks it looks like. It's a really nice and quiet place but I am almost ready to move on. I've worked a few puzzles in the clubhouse and we've been out on the boat but the last three days or so have been rainy and cool so we pretty much have stayed inside.

What do the kids say:

Rain rain go away, come again another day!

I'm trying to make my blog interesting, I really am............

There once was a girl from old Spanaway
Whose blog was just a bit ok
She tried really hard
To make it avant-garde
But it seemed to be only blase! (what's with the underlining? I can't turn it off!)

I'm trying.............trying to be more creative and interesting.

August 8, 2009 Lake Sawyer RV Park, Black Diamond, WA

We've been in the Lake Sawyer RV Park for one full week. We've found it to be a nice quiet little park with a gorgeous lake and a beautiful setting all around. Between Maple Valley and Black Diamond and Black Diamond and Auburn........beautiful wooded areas. There's also plenty of shopping and restaurants close by. Couldn't ask for any more.

Here's a photo of my husband digging into dessert. We just had a wonderful crockpot roast beef dinner with french green beans and wild rice. Dessert is German Chocolate cake. You can see how hard it is to keep a motorhome neat and tidy but we love our new little home.

Pixie, sorry about the eyes, wasn't going to take a nap until she knew for sure she'd get no roast beef. There's always a chance!

What do you think Frank is doing? Doesn't he look a little guilty? Hmmmmmm maybe hoping for someone to drop a bit of roast beef his way.

I'll try to post more photos from now on. I know photos are more interesting than reading a bunch of boring stuff.

August7, 2009 Friday

We've been in the Lake Sawyer resort in Black Diamond, WA for a week now. We are falling into this lifestyle very quickly and find it comfortable and relaxing. I have lots of time to knit and crochet, paint, read and now have even enjoyed cooking. What makes this lifestyle so different when it comes to cooking? I had lots of time before, too. There's something about it.

I need to get a few photos taken so I can post our RV and you can see how we've been living this last week.

It was nice and sunny and even a bit too warm a week ago but has now changed to barely making it to 70 and cloudy. Glad I brought some warmer clothes.

More later and hopefully a few photos.

August 2, 2009 Lake Sawyer Resort

We left our house at 2:15 Friday, July 31, 2009. We arrived at Lake Sawyer Sunrise resort at about 3pm. It's really quite a nice park. It's large and looks to be almost 100% full. We got the last full-hook-up spot. How lucky is that?! We had planned to leave the house at noon, but of course, you always underestimate how long it'll take to do that last minute cleaning.

I think we did pretty good in deciding what to keep and what to put in storage but I know there'll be things we find that we didn't need. We will either make up another box or two of things to put in storage or we'll find the nearest GoodWill.

The weather has still been pretty hot but not 100 again. We're also lucky that our site is pretty much in the shade. The AC runs from early morning till dark.

We have a few appointments to take care of before we leave the park, August 14, and head for Montana, Colorado, and Minnesota to visit friends and family.
