March 1, 2009

Today was another do-noth-in day and that’s OK with us. DH decided he needed to spend some time at the Home Depot. He just gets that urge to go and walk up and down the isles---mostly looking......I stay home during those looky-lou excursions.

The furballs and I were happy to be ‘couch potatoes’. I did some beading--learned a new technique called ‘ndebele’ or ‘herringbone’. Took me a little while to get the hang of it, but I did. I’m making a ‘caterpillar“ bracelet. You basically weave the base and then add bead ‘fringe’. I ‘ll see if I can get a good photo and post. I’m about half way on the base.

We decided on salad for supper. We buy those chicken tenders, grill them, and then add them to our salad fix-ins. It is a filling dinner, but yet light and cool. That’s a good thing with Temps topping out in the 90’s today.

We also had some more ‘boondocking’ practice today. Seems one of our neighbors decided to flip on their AC and the current electrical system could not handle it. The park is asking folks to refrain from using their air at this time. They are in the process of upgrading, but it takes time and money--so for now---NO AC PLEASE. We have not used our AC at all, but we do like our fans. The power was off for about 2 hours, but fortunately it was from about 5pm to 7pm, once the sun goes down it cools off fast. After dinner, we just left the lights off and watched a little tv till bedtime-the batteries did just fine. They are still forecasting above normal temps till the weekend, so I’m guessing we will be seeing some more of those power failures in our future :)
