Final visitations.....

7:14 am - Tuesday - April 10th - SoCal - 64º F, 30% humidity (love low humidity), wind 1 mph out of the north by northwest (sounds like a good name for a movie)......partly cloudy with a forecast high of 92º F......another scorcher!

We're down to 5 days and change until we haul anchor and begin our meandering month long journey to Maine for the summer.  I'm beginning to tick off items on my 'to do' departure list in preparation for that day.  We're in the middle of a mini heatwave right now, but it will be back in the 70's and 80's by Wednesday.

One of my 'to do' things was to get an overdue haircut at the local Supercuts, and for TLE to get some things to the dry cleaners so we can have them back before we leave.  We left on our errands about 11:15 and were back home by 12:30 with those two items crossed off our list.  

Since it was going to be quite hot in the afternoon we had already turned on the A/C before we left on our errands to avoid having to cool down the coach when we returned, and we were glad we did.

I spent some time in the trailer going through the wall cabinets and pulling out things we are not using, or do not need with us until we need them.  I'm going to box them up and take them over to my son's warehouse and put them on our shelving for later use.  If we need them Chris can mail them to us, but I doubt we will need those things for at least a year, if not more.   By the time I finished it was getting hot inside the trailer and time to retreat to an air conditioned environment.

Around 4:15 pm we got back in the VW to drive over to our daughter Sharon's home to have dinner with her and her family.  We put in an order at the local Cafe Río for take out, and picked that up on the way to her home.  I always enjoy spending 'one on one' time with our kids as it gives me more time to talk with them about their lives, plans, hopes, dreams, and spend time with the grand kiddies......

Left to right: Moi, TLE, Sharon, Rod and Brayden James

.....it's difficult to have an extended conversation with any of them when we are all together in one place.....don't get me wrong....I love having all my children together in one place at the same time, but let's face it....it's a totally different experience than the 'one of ones'.  We had a lovely time visiting for about 2 hours before heading back to the barn a little after 7 pm.  We have a lot of final visits scheduled this week with our kids, and pretty much every remaining evening this week involves some sort of family interaction.

By the time we returned home it was time to turn off the A/C and open the windows for the evening.  We watched a few recorded shows and were in bed before 11 pm.....thanks for stopping by!
