End of June our Anniversary Month

Thursday June 28, 2018

After work Jim asked me to stop at the guard shack to big up packages he ordered from Camping World. They were large and didn't have room for them very long. So I did Matt put them in the car for me. When Jim got home he unpacked them. An adjustable folding metal table, grill cover and bike rack.

We ate leftover smoked chicken soup loaded with veggies.
After dinner Jim was playing with the stuff he ordered and it turned out the bike rack would not really fit right on the back of the FW. It was to close to back and the ladder, we wouldn't want it to touch it, and or rub.

Starting to get hot, I watered all my flower pots. They do look nice, our 2 friends near by like looking at them when I'm not here and my car is not blocking there view.

So I had to work late today till 8. But I'm able to get up a little after 7, relax and drink my coffee watching the Today Show, and I can do a few things and not have to rush around. I did keep the awning out to keep the sun off FW. Jim was going to be home around 2:30 but found out he never did make it home till 5, sometimes things have to go into overtime. People need there heat, AC, or hot water back on or what ever he is working on.

So we chatted a little while I was on break, was a very busy day for me as usual. But when I got home, was so nice and relaxing Jim had a fire going, and we were both still a little hungry, so he grilled a couple of burgers, always ( turkey one for me ) We sat out by the fire and ate at the picnic table was SOOOoo nice. We really enjoyed it. This is the life, nothing better. It cooled off a lot when the sun started to set.

Happy Anniversary 34 years, to my wonderful husband, as we say we couldn't do this Lifestyle without each other. We each do what the other can't or won't, which ever, LOL, IT Works :)

So we slept in today as usual for a Saturday we don't work. I made us a smoothie and a little later 10ish I made us eggs and uncured bacon, and paleo Blueberry pancakes, wonderful, he loves it.

Was getting hotter and hotter out. First we went to the bike shop in Cleona to see if it was worth fixing, the 2 older mountain bikes we had that used to be Jim's Dad's. Also we were going to return the bike rack, but we forgot it, so we have to do that later. We were going to bring bikes back to CG if we didn't leave them at the bike place to be fixed, Well it turns out no they were not worth fixing so Jim felt no need to bring them back, was afraid they would get stolen out of the back of the truck in Harrisburg, now LOL he was wishing they would get stolen. We were trying to think of what our options were as far as the bikes, I said well we could just walk, or I really want a golf cart ie a " Cricket " a mini golf cart about 300 lbs folds down to move, so cute. We looked at bikes in " Bike " shop they were around 600 each, no way, we also thought of the folding bikes. The old mountain bikes needed everything to make them road safe, probably take 500 or more to fix them.

So till we got into Harrisburg area it was after 1 and we were both ready for lunch. We wanted to go to Chili's. We went to one in Florida for the first time and really liked it a lot. Ended up going a few times there. We didn't take pictures but Jim had half rack ribs and brisket, I had Salmon and Mexican rice with broccoli We had endless in house made tortilla chips, for an app, very good, but probably will not do again though. We had a wonderful waiter they don't write anything down when you order, but get everything right. Very accommodating he was, wanted to take leftover chips he gave us a fresh full container to go. And we wanted to take all our leftover soda he filled 2 large fresh cups to go, that ended up staying cold in the heat for the rest of our hot day trip. I asked what the difference between diet coke and coke zero. He told us I forget how he said it but Google says The Taste, Both are sugar free and calorie free but Zero sugar looks and tastes more like Coca-Cola Classic, while Diet Coke has a different blend of flavors which gives it a lighter taste. We had a very enjoyable lunch, and on to our next adventure,

 SO we left there and headed to Camping World. 
Not our favorite place, never have FW worked on there again, did our old one never again, long story. But ok to shop in the store or on line. We looked around and at the folding bikes. We test drove them, had two nice young guys helping us, didn't know to much, but very nice and helpful. the gray one Jim was driving the gear kept clicking just was not right. One young guy went and got a new one in a box and they both very quickly put it together. So we ended up with 2 new bikes for our anniversary. We parked far from the door because we had the truck and we road them over to the truck to leave, I went the long way. I have not road a bike in years, I'm always afraid of falling, so far so good.

The we headed to Penn National Race Track, where we met. He was a waiter and I was in the kitchen making desserts. We worked in the nicest dining room there Mountain View Terrace. I was so young I was not allowed to use a knife to cut bananas to make banana splits. This guy had to for me I didn't complain I could have used a butter knife but I didn't say that, I liked him not Jim. But Jim grew on me I am with the best person I was ment  to be with. We went to the same school but I didn't know him then. He knew who I was,  he knew my younger brothers.
We walked around, it looked different now and there is non smoking areas but smoke goes everywhere and we can only take it so long. They have really good pizza we shared a thick slice. We put a few bucks in a slot machine. People watched it was full. Had a drink and was soon time to head out.

More Days in June

Sunday June 17, 2018

Father's Day
Hershey Pennsylvania

Today is moving day. Always a busy and a little stressful day moving the rig. We came from Pa Dutch TT to Hershey TT. Home as we call it. It was full, we couldn't find a free 50 AMP site in lower H loop. So we are in B loop, 3 dollars a day for electric, if you have 50 AMP. We have a nice spot with a few trees to give us some nice shade.

We are here for a month, so he put a lot of stuff out we don't really set up anymore. The biggest thing is his outdoor kitchen. We went for a little walk around and got some ice cream. We put our feet in the pool, it was really full with all the rain, a lot of people too, was hot too. We came home and Thomas and Travis called Jim for Father's Day. I made some IP  spaghetti, can't get over how easy and good it is.

Monday June 18, 2018

After work Travis and our youngest Granddaughter Mia came over. He had a friend with him she had 2 sons, 3 and 4 years. First they all went into the pool for a while. To cold for us. When they came back we grilled burgers and hot dogs. Jim made a fire and her oldest boy loved it and kept looking for stuff to through into it.  I also put a little beef roast in the IP for Jim. Was a really nice evening with our youngest son.

Tuesday June 19, 2018

After work I went to the  Country View store. When Jim got home we grilled some meat and veggies. We were sitting under the awning and the one neighbor came by and said a turtle was coming down the driveway between the cars. We saw this turtle, with  his head up so high looking around, it looked like a snake. Reminded us of all the turtles in Florida, was fun to watch for awhile. 
So exciting real life.

Wednesday June 20, 2018

I had off today. It is Sarah's birthday today, she is 11.
After dinner we went to his Mom's home to see his brother and our SIL, they are here from Colorado. We had a nice visit.

Thursday June 21, 2018

After work I went right to Bethel to get my nails done. Then I went Redners food store. Took a picture of our old house, they have the flower bed so nice. They got rid of a lot of things I had in, like this big piece of cool wood, that my Dad had at his house for years. And a pom pom bush, I paid a lot of money for years ago.

When Jim got home from work he saw a deer at the guard shed. He got a good picture of it. The deer on the dash of the truck, is a replica of one we had as a kid it was on a going away cake when we all left as a family in our 30 foot Concord MH and went to Alaska. Long story but it is special to me, when it was facing out all was well with the world.

After dinner he went to his Mom to see his brother and I stayed home, and had a nice quite evening. I was tired.

Friday June 22, 2018

After work when we were done with dinner, his brother came over by himself. They sat out by the camp fire and had a nice visit. I went in and gave them so alone time.

Saturday June 23, 2018

This was my first weekend to work day shift instead  of the late one, when I only get home at 8. After work Larry and our SIL Chris and Jim's Mom came over to the CG. We grilled burgers and had a real nice visit. I made a Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake yesterday and we had it for dessert. Jim made a real nice fire we all enjoyed.

Sunday June 24, 2018

After work, I get home right before 3. Before I  got home Jim took the truck and went to pick up some wood at his buddy's house and he was holding our 2 bikes. Now we have to work on them, they are not quite road ready yet. We went and shared a sub and a slice of pizza, for early dinner. Then we went to Redners for a little food shopping. Then we dropped off the truck and picked up the van for work tomorrow.

Monday June 25, 2018

I worked the late shift today. When I got home Jim had grilled me a turkey burger, I ate it alfresco, I love to eat outside something about it is so special and  fun.  Jim grilled a steak for his dinner. He smoked 2 chickens too. Now I have 2 days off.
