Saturday March 20, 2010-Stephen F. Austin SP

Today was our first day without the boys in a week. We miss them already, but then we also didn't have to deal with them being in bed after we wanted to get up and start doing things. It was raining and turned colder again this morning, so that kept the firewood sales down but I did sell a few bags of ice. People need to keep things cool!

Our friends Gene and Linda drove over from Austin. We met them at Priest Gulch this past year, and they are going on a state park trip to about four different park, so they began their trip here. It was very good to see them again, having kept in touch since leaving Colorado by email.

We went into the Post Office in San Felipe and mailed off the contract on the house. I hope it closes soon. We loved our house, but are ready to move on with our new life and put home ownership behind us. Being homeless never felt so good!

Later in the afternoon, we invited Gene and Linda to go to Tony's restaurant with us for supper. We all had a great meal and finished up with some of their homemade blueberry pie. As usual, it was all delicious. It had stopped raining, but it was very cold and windy, so after a quick stop at Wal Mart, we came back home and went in for the night.

None of us were really well prepared for the cold weather. Gene and Linda do not full time, and didn't have any heavy coats in their trailer. We had taken our small electric heater that we had used in the living room, all of our heavy winter coats and most of our sweaters and sweat shirts to storage, believing that winter was finally over. NOT!!

Some of our other Colorado friends, Len and Peggy were also coming this weekend. There was some sort of foul-up over their reservations. Peggy had told me that they were coming in on Sunday, but when I tried to reserve some spaces for them, I was told at the office that they were expected on Saturday, so Linda called them and told them. They arrived later in the evening, around 9:30. For some reason, I wasn't aware of it when they got here. Hmmmm.

We're ready for another great weekend with our friends.

So long.
