Week 2 ho hummm

Things become repetitive after a couple of weeks. We don’t have kids since we are retired. So we play cards, yahtzee, scrabble or eat or nap. We do takes short walks, wave at a distance and stay to ourselves.

Pictures from back in NH, my family. I’m glad they are all safe. Although my sons are still at risk, Seth is a postal worker and Adam is a meat cutter. Both are with people daily. I love them both!!

So our 1st week of self quarantine comes to an end, we have done okay. It has been a little harder for David who has been use to working every day. I’m doing ok and both of us are continuing to clean cabinets and drawers. Cleaning under the RV bins, getting ready for when we have the ok to head home. I will try to keep things interesting. Please keep safe!! Prayers for all of you πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™β€

Antics during self quarantine…

New haircut and goatee trim…. handsome hubby ❀

So since I’m in the RV 😷 and I did the housework which in a 30 foot RV only takes 30 to 45 minutes. I was looking for something to do! Ahhhhhh I’ll give Peanut a bath. He is so small I can do him in the sink. Well it didn’t go quite as expected. The floor got washed, the lower drawers got washed and besides Peanut getting a bath so did I! 🀨

Pouting!! Wet but clean and smelling good!

Things we do or don’t due while being self quarantined.

Do on line shopping!
Can’t get a haircut!!

When you live in an RV you can always clean out cabinets, rearrange and organize. Of course spread it out or it will only take about 7 to 10 days. Inside and outside…lol. Today we cleaned out our food pantry, it does seem better and more organize to what we use least or most.

Frequently use cooking items
Containers and staples
Medicine cabinet!
Made protein balls
What’s up??

I am grateful for a roof over my head, food on table and amazing husband who is with me! ❀ It is a little scary and we are done our job on April 15th but don’t know if we will be able to leave. Questionable about campground being open. So all our plans are now up in the air! When we leave, where we will stay and when will we get home….. I’m missing my family even though I know they are alright. Prayers for all of you!πŸ™

Is the world getting smaller?

I’m honoring all the nurses and any medical personnel. Thank you for working hard during such stressful and difficult times.

Missing my family, so I got some pictures from back home.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! πŸ€πŸ€

With the coronavirus 19 going around and everything being cancelled. We are staying home, restaurants are take out only.

Well this notice was on the clubhouse doors today! WOW!! Space continues to get smaller and smaller.

We are staying close to home. If we go out cause we are stir crazy it’s for a ride. I will say I am a little concern for my husband who is out doing postmates. But they have implemented a no contact service. So please say a little prayer he will be ok. We are still up in the air about our trip back home,Arizona to New Hampshire. It will depend what is going on in a month and what campgrounds are open or not. So everyone stay safe and prayers to all. We will get through this!!!

Social distancing…..

I thought we could use a little chuckle!

With the coming of social distancing and self quarantine, you can go a little loopy! So what we decided to do is go for a ride. We went to the Parker Dam and then some exploring the back roads. It was a great day and only spoke to 1 person the whole time! 😁

Back roads is right!

Now instead of going back we decided to go adventuring. As it was so worth it the landscape was breathtaking. The road lead us to an RV way off the path on Lake Havasu. We were going to park and check it out when we were waved on. We where given a guest pass and a map. So we drove around. Fun!

A wonderful adventure! What are you doing to keep sane?

Turmoil….

Opening day is coming!!!

I always get so excited when opening day comes around! My oldest son and I go to see the Boston Red Sox open no matter what date or where they are. This year they open up in Toronto but things are on hold due to this years Coronavirus. We shall see what happens next!

Last night we went out to eat and had such a great time. We went to Cha Bones in Lake Havasu City. Tanguay and tonics, steamed clams, cajun shrimp and tuna skewers. Delicious 🍸πŸ₯–

T + T and 7+7

Raining today and will continue through Friday so a good day for soup. I happen to have a ham bone so pea soup it is … yummmy!

Well I won’t be going to opening day. SMH MLB has cancelled spring training and opening day has been pushed back 2 weeks 😭. Q

I just read Disneyworld is even going to close for 2 weeks. I have to say I was concern that I wouldn’t be let back into the country since opening day is in Toronto, Canada.

I’m so luck, early this morning my husband bought me my beach cruiser.

Schwinn beach cruiser

The tires were a little soft they need air. David said no problem he had a compressor. Well he attached the compressor and he went to get a air gauge when walking back, POP!!!! He blew a tire tube. He felt so bad of course I laughed since he jumped and if he could have seen his face!

On th way home from having our taxes done we saw the biggest and fluffiest clouds!

Beautiful

It’s hard to believe we only have 1 more month here at Lake Havasu City and then it’s our trek home!
