Somebody Open Up the Window and Let Me Catch My Breath

Trip 2 – Day 20

Monday, January 28, 2013

Dad is (or should be) thrilled.  FOY’s cafe serves breakfast EVERY DAY, and so far, he has enjoyed it EVERY DAY, including today.  I am not an early starter.  We all know this.  I can do the night shift, but mornings are not my best time.  So, the boys leave the Hag, and I get myself together.  By the time they are back I am either eating my own breakfast or just finishing.  Again, today was no exception.

It was somewhat of a surprise to me, but today was also laundry day for this group.  I thought I had “fixed” things so that laundry day would NOT occur every 4 days or less, but alas, I had not.  Dad was adamant that we needed to get over to the laundry room early.  We were there before 9:00, as was every other person in the park.  We waited about 15 minutes for a washer to become available, and when the clothes were washed, we waited with wet clothes, about the same amount of time for a dryer.  We walked home with our clean clothes sometime just before noon.   When I asked Dad why we needed to wash clothes so often, he said, “Well, this is about how often I do them at home.”  I reminded him that we were on “vacation,” not at home.  His response, “Oh, I guess you have something better to do?”  Well, yes, as a matter of fact, I do.  Not doing laundry every 4 days would be preferable.

I decided to go to “Show and Tell,” one of the sewing/craft type groups at FOY.  They met from 1:30 to 3:00 in a large meeting room at the far end of the park.

It was pretty much a business-type meeting with half the discussion regarding the upcoming craft fair, and the last half a sharing of the projects that took place during classes that are held in the sewing & craft room in the park.  I’m not going to be here long enough to participate, so I am still thinking that I will have my own sewing group……with myself.  Although, there is a woman who will teach tatting, and my Grandma was a tatter.  I would love to learn…….but this may not be the time.

I came home after the group and made split pea soup.  The sky had clouded up and the temperature dropped into the low 60’s.  Definitely soup weather, for this area.
