Laundry Day!

Today was just a quiet day at home and doing laundry - we did have the automatic satellite dish put on the trailer this morning - so now all we have to do is just pull into a campground and push a button and within two minutes we have TV. (Yes, Dan is lazy and doesn't want to have to put out the portable dish - but I think it will certainly be nice.) I did laundry this afternoon- had three loads again and spent $7.00 - took me about 2 hours. Dan stayed at home with the girls.

Looks like we might have a job for the winter in Florida - at least the months of November and December - Highland Hammock State Park which should be about 30 minutes from Lakeland and 20 minutes from Lake Placid. Dan will be working in the campground as host on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:30 to 12:30 - I'll be working in the ranger station on the same days but from 8:00 to 1:00. We'll have the weekends off (which includes Thanksgiving and Christmas - YEAH!) and have afternoons off also. We don't get paid, but will have a hook-up. I've also applied for a position in Georgia for the months of March and April - this will keep us on the east coast through my mom's birthday and this park is not too far from where she lives. We'll just have to wait and see if we get the position.

Well, I really don't have much to report tonight - Dan is waiting for me to finish the posting tonight so I can start dinner - we are having steak, baked potato, salad, and fresh corn on the cob. I did put a picture on of the Warm River - thought you might like to see it. Hope you enjoy - and I look forward to more comments. (BTW - Dan says his back is better and has not taken any more medicine - I sure don't want his blood pressure to go back up - or for him to have an anxiety attack). Tomorrow it's back to work and we should be really busy all weekend - it's Pioneer Days out here (this is a local holiday in Idaho and Utah celebrating Brigham Young stopping in Salt Lake City) anyway, a lot of people take their vacation at this time - we've been told we'll be busier than the 4th of July. I'll let you know.

Take care and I'll talk to you tomorrow!


  1. I think I read that there will be some re
    paving at Highlands Hammock. It's a beautiful park and we always enjoy our visits there. It should be very busy during those months. Keep up the good posts. I enjoy reading how the other half lives.

  2. Yes, Highlands Hammock is nice. I went there many times as a kid for birthday parties, etc., since I grew up in Avon Park. Our camping club has one of its outings there each spring.

  3. yeah! SALAD!!!!
