Settling in! ahhhh

Well we have been at the resort for 4 days and have done absolutely nothing! Recharging, resting and catching up on sleep….zzzz feels great! We have been utilizing the pool too, since the temperature here has been 99 degrees.

One thing I have missed is my Keurig. Sometimes I want a cup of coffee but I don’t want to make a full pot. So today we treated ourselves and bought a Keurig that you can make a full pot or just a cup of coffee β˜• SWEET!

Well today was grocery shopping day! Phew!! It took us 3 hours and 2 different stores. We hadn’t shopped in a month, we were low on everything. Oh I did buy some liquor for special drinks…. lol. Creamsicle cocktails…. yummy πŸ˜‹

4 oz orange soda, 1 oz whipped cream vodka, 1oz vodka. Whip cream and sprinkles.
Watching the World Series

So there is Halloween πŸŽƒ going on back at home. I know my oldest granddaughter is missing her cosplay. The little Theokas clan decorated the outside with different people.

A wonderful 1st week! Some swimming πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ and a little bit of helping getting the clubhouse ready to open in November. Next, Halloween πŸŽƒ appetizers and drinks 🍸 at our rig……pictures to come 😁

Oh and I started a exercise regime to get healthier. Progress made 1st week! Eating healthy, exercising, taking better care of myself and somewhere along the line I lost 4.5 lbs!! Yeah πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ and walking πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ.

Lake Havasu City!!! yeah!

The last leg of our trip! We really need some down time. Nine days going 3000 miles ……😫 We are happy and excited to be here. It is so great to see all our friends ❀ The weather is absolutely wonderful, in the 90s. Warm and dry, I really like it here!

We made a quick stop at this store, to check our jacks. The jack indicator kept beeping. We put the jacks down and up again and that seemed to solve the problem.

Displays
Fun 😁

As usual I like to take pictures πŸ“· of our travels. The hazy you see in pictures is the residual smoke from the California fires.

Beautiful landscape and colors
