After being initially encouraged by the activities calendar for January, it's uncertain now just how many activities are actually going to take place! (Hold on, Sparky! It's a little early to be saying that!) True, I shouldn't say that, it's only the first week of January. Went to the knitting class this morning, only to find I was the only one who showed up! I guess I didn't get the memo that went around...seriously, there was a memo! The gal was sick...we'll try again next week!

Met some really nice people next door on the next site to us...Their names are Ritchie and Nick...Ritchie is Scottish, which has to do with her unusual name...They are fun to talk to and we are really enjoying getting to know them.
Eldy took a nap, I baked some cookies--from a prepackaged mix--Betty Crocker I am not! Although I got the Betty Crocker Homemaker of the Year award in my senior year of high school...(HAHAHAHAHA!) Hush, Eldy! I have to admit it WAS sort of a goody two shoes award for being such a NICE, teacher-pleasing student and the home ec. teacher really liked me. It didn't have anything to do with cooking but I was a HELL of a sewer! (Now I can believe that! says E.) Then I signed up to be a volunteer for the local elementary school. But you have to have a background check, maybe fingerprints filed and by the time all that gets approved, I MIGHT get to go help one day in the school before we leave at the end of the month. Frustrating that I have to go through all that to just go volunteer in a school....It takes so much time that I won't get to make a difference and work with kids. Maybe I'll just apply in every state we visit and on the next go around, I'll be able to start helping right away!
So that was our day today......tonight temperatures going down into the TWENTIES....We'll be toasty in our Tiffin..bays are heated, no worries, mate! And no wind....last night the wind kept the awning toppers a flappin' and Eldy doesn't sleep well when that happens! Until tomorrow......
