We had reading and art lessons while we talked to her and then she read us part of a book. It’s one that Granny Marigold told us about last month on her blog. You can find her blog over on my side bar. It’s one of their family traditions that she reads it to their grandchildren. It’s called, “A Porcupine in a Pine Tree.” I ordered it for Piper and she loves it. Every time we chat over video, she reads me two pages of the book. This was our art lesson for today. This was my attempt. Papa wouldn’t let me show you his! 😂 I definitely won’t be winning any artist of the year awards anytime soon!
It was a very quiet day. We didn’t go anywhere. In fact, I didn’t leave the RV at all. I did laundry, we watched some videos and I made homemade chicken and noodles for dinner. I even remembered to take a photo for you. It was so yummy and hit the spot on a cloudy damp day.
Tomorrow we’re meeting a bunch of people from church about a block away from a very special lady‘s house. It’s her birthday and we’re going to have a birthday parade in our cars. Don’t worry, it is all very safely social distanced. She has no idea, so it’s going to be a big surprise for her. We’ll all drive by and drop birthday cards or little gifts in a basket that someone is bringing to set on their front sidewalk, while they watch safely from the doorway. They are such sweet people and big encouragers of everyone they know. No matter how old you are, everyone in the church calls them Uncle Jerry and Aunt Tina.
We are all supposed to meet at noon and unfortunately it’s supposed to be snowing heavily again by 11:00. Hopefully we will have a good crowd show up and everyone drives safely.
I made dinner and these four little stockings while we watched a show on Netflix called “The Queen.” In our opinion it’s not nearly as good as “The Crown.” I’m going to put some candy in the stockings to give to the park manager, the maintenance man and the lady who cleans the laundry rooms in the main building. It’s not much but it’s a little something.
That’s about it for us. We talked to Mandy by video and Dennis‘s mom by phone. I hope you all had a great Saturday. Stay safe and warm.
Blessings and love,
