Last day in Retama Village!

LOCATION:  In our tiny house in Retama Village, in Mission, Texas
WEATHER:  Hot again.  High 100

Today is our last day here.  It is amazing that we found enough to do for the 5 months we have been here.  This is the longest we have stayed here at one time.  I hope the blog posts during these stay-at-home days have been interesting….or perhaps a teensy bit interesting! 

We got up early to do outside chores before it heated up.  We took everything out of the shed.  We found a lot of mouse poop, but no mice.  We also found several grand-daddy long legs and a black-widow spider! 

There was a lot to take out….

George cleaned the shed and sprayed for bugs.  After he put everything back in, it seemed like we have a lot more space!

This Facebook photo popped up from a trip we made to Yellowstone National Park with our friends Tony and Jenny.  I sure hope we can get some hiking in this summer.

We cleared out the refrigerator and deep-cleaned it.  We will leave it off while we are away, and don’t want any odors!  We put sun shades – the reflective kind – in our windows behind the blinds for extra protection against the strong summer sun.  Check, check, check more off the to-do list.

A delightful surprise – two of our favorite Retama Village couples dropped by to say goodbye.  There are so many nice people here that we will miss! 

DINNER:  Sauteed shrimp with garlic and green onion.  Side was pasta with the kitchen sink mixed in — tomato paste, green peas, onion, basil, mushrooms, and parsley.
