Still parked in the campround....

Thursday, June 5, 2008

Well, I did end up stashing the tables, chairs & other outdoor stuff yesterday. The wind got too high to take a chance. By 6:00 the sky was dark with threatening clouds and I pulled in my outdoor mat, the last outdoor item, just in case it rained. By 7:00 it poured and in the distance I could hear thunder. The rain continued for two hours...completely unexpected. Then the low dropped into the mid-30's. Actually had to turn the heat back on!

I ended up not moving to a boondocking spot for two reasons. First, I was concerned about the soggy ground. When I drove up there earlier I saw deep ruts where others had to deal with soft ground. The thought of getting up there and getting stuck wasn't at the top of my "to do" list.

The second reason came while I was cleaning the car....trying to get all the dust circles from rain removed (more Protectall cleaning). I was almost done, had the back door open and was stretching to reach the center of the roof. My foot slipped and I wrenched my ankle. Spent most of the day with ice on it, taking aspirin and trying to stay off it as much as possible. It's better tonight but still a little swollen and sore. exercise walking for a couple of days.

Diet went pretty well today, considering I was constantly fighting comfort food urges. LOL!
  • Bananas/strawberries in lo-fat vanilla yogurt
  • Progresso wild rice & chicken (100 calorie cup)
  • Pepperidge Farm Stella Dora cookies (3)
  • Shredded chicken, marinara sauce & 1/2 can Zucchini w/tomatoes
  • Apple
  • Quaker multi-grain popcorn mini-cakes (90 calorie package)
For those trying to watch what you eat, I read today about a new way to use text on your cellphone. You can text to find out what the food values are in several chain restaurants. Sounds interesting....of course I'd have to have one of my kids show me how to text. Oops! Here's a news story on this new use for mobile phones.

The weather still looks good here...I love seeing 85 listed as "very warm". I can deal with that. I've been working on travel routes to Gillette, WY for the Escapade. One route takes me through Beaver, I read a blog about some folks who are there and they got 5-6" of snow yesterday. EEEK! Sure hope I don't hit snow on the way north....

Till next time - keep on rollin',
