LOCATION: Tiny house in Retama Village, in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Hot, overcast, and muggy. High 90
Today I am struggling to think of an exciting event today. We did walk around the neighborhood a bit. It is almost a ghost town. Many people have left, and those that are here are staying indoors mostly. We don’t see nearly as many dog-walkers or bicyclists.
Some residents have packed up their RVs and have cleared out of their coach houses totally.
Others leave their RVs here and have either flown back home, or have driven a car/truck back north.
The pickle ball courts, doggie park, and boccie ball courts all lie sadly vacant. The bulletin board next to the swimming pool, normally chock-full of event notices, stands forlorn and blank. So sad!
We have friends that headed out this week to Ontario, Wisconsin, and Washington state. They post about their journeys. They say that have been successful finding commercial RV parks to camp in on their way. They drive long days, stay in their RVs at RV parks, use gloves to pump fuel, eat food that they have brought along, and just hurry on home. They say that almost the only vehicles on the highways are semi-trucks.
We had only 5 at water aerobics classes today. Some people are afraid of potential coronavirus germs in the pool. Some come only when the sun is shining, and it was cloudy today.
George completed day #4 of the tile floor grout-cleaning project. He has just one more day left – good thing, as the sealer liquid is almost finished.
DINNER: Jambalaya! When I last did grocery shopping, there was no rice on the shelves, so I had to buy some rice mixes, like this one. I jazzed this up with shrimp, Andouille sausage, okra, bell peppers, and onions. It was good, but not as good as it would have been, had we been able to do our Cajun RV rally in southern Louisiana that was scheduled for this week! 😦
