STARTING TO LOOK A BIT CHRISTMASY AROUND HERE FIRST THING THIS MORNING
Snowing lightly when we woke up this morning & we later cut our morning walk in half due to a wet snow falling from the sky. This cold & damp is not good weather for the arthritis in my legs & I was very aware of that this morning. These are more Novemberesque days than mid October days.
GRAND BEND IS A SHORT 20 MINUTES DRIVE SOUTH OF US & THIS IS WHAT THE YACHT CLUB’S WEATHER CAM SHOWED THIS MORNING AT 9 A.M……YA, WE GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE ALRIGHT
Nicest thing about the cold outside is the warm inside & it just so happens to be the beginning of that time of year again. And what better way to make that warm inside even nicer than to bake up a bunch of raisin bran muffins & molasses cookies. Imagine coming in from the damp cold outside to the wonderful warm aroma of muffins & cookies baking. For experienced muffin eaters like Pheebs & I it was quite a windfall & we managed to snitch 3 muffins right off the bat before Kelly caught us sneaking back for a forth. Yep, we loves our muffins alright & these muffins & cookies are the best of the best ever:)) By the way those muffins & cookies will be heading south with us…….if there’s any left by then that is.
ALWAYS SO PRETTY SEEING LARGE SNOWFLAKES SLOWLY FALLING STRAIGHT DOWN
<<< SNOWY SUMAC LEAVES & NOTICE THE FAHRENHEIT TEMPERATURE
Fellow RV Bloggers & friends Caron & Chris from Travels With CC & Dixie along with their dog Trixie moved into our Park Friday. They bought themselves a nice house at the far end & have an excellent location next to a forest setting. Full timing for the past 4 years in the their 35' Class A Motorhome they felt it was time to add the security of a home base & switch their southern winter travels into Snow Bird mode. Maybe not the nicest first day for them with all this wet snow coming down but with all the pine trees around it sure can get mighty pretty in here real fast & it was actually nice today to see the large snow flakes drifting lazily to the ground. Matter of fact the first time I ever saw this Park years ago was at night & it was like driving into a Disney like winter Wonderland. It's one of those memories that will always stay with me.
A LIGHT DUSTING OF SNOW IN OUR FRONT YARD
A TOUCH OF WET SNOW HAS OUR RED BUD & BASS TREE LEAVES DROOPING
AND THIS IS WHAT THE DAY LOOKED LIKE FROM INSIDE THE MOTORHOME TODAY
All & all it turned out be a relaxing stay in the house day & in light of the busy ramped up days & weeks ahead it was kind of nice to be basking in kind of a floating nothingness today. A week from tonight I have no idea just exactly where we will be except to say somewhere this side of Chicago & quite possibly in a CRACKER BARREL parking lot somewhere. Looking forward to getting a Cracker Barrel or two under our belts again. Been about 6 & a half months since our last CB stop. And yes it's safe to say both Kelly & I are true Crackle Barrel fans. Like the food & like the old time ambience with that big crackling fireplace in each Crackle Barrel restaurant.
