9/5/15 (Saturday) in Bend, OR (Bend/Sunriver RV Campground-TT)
Cold again, but this time we were prepared and set up the space heater for our bedroom. Nice. Slept much better. Janet and I aren’t meeting for WC classes because it’s a busy time at the lodge.
John, thank heavens, was looking ahead at the weather in Redding,CA, our next stop. Every day, over 100 degrees!!! Yikes!!! Even with 50 amp service, we’d be struggling. An RV just doesn’t have the insulation a “sticks and bricks” home has. Plus our A/C comes from heat pumps, which are more limited. I’ve heard they can manage 10 degrees above/below the outside temperature at best. Due to that realization (our highs lately here have been in the mid 50’s, next week they’ll be in the mid 80’s), we researched and decided to change our plans-hang out in this area where at least it’s not in the 100’s. SO we’re staying a week at the nearby ROD park (hopefully with sewer and 50 amps), then going to Redding. Hopefully those high temperatures will have begun to abate by then.
We took part in a couple of the activities: the 2:30 cake and ice cream (free) celebrating Member Appreciation Day. Janet and Roger joined us, then we gathered at our coach to play “13”. We all had a great time until we parted for supper.
As we were finishing our meal, John remembered that there was some live Western Music happening at the lodge at 7, so we dashed off (yes, our foot-needed that exercise), getting there late but thoroughly enjoying the show – until 9:30!
Back at home, I just left the dishes for tomorrow and we hit the sack.
9/6/15 (Sunday) in Bend, OR (Bend/Sunriver RV Campground-TT)
I enjoyed my last time singing with the choir at St. Francis Assisi church. This time we went straight home and I did some prep for my WC class time with Janet, then we got together at 1. This time the lodge was comfortable; they even had a fire going in the fireplace. For this class we worked on a landscape and a portrait, feeling good about our results.
John has been watching TV while playing with numbers on the computer (oh, some Facebook thrown in as well) and reading while I’ve been doing all my chores and WC efforts. We had leftover chili for supper (great for these cool days), then played free bingo at the lodge. We couldn’t win a thing, even with the last man standing game. We were, at least, among the few last “men” standing… In this game everyone picks their worst bingo card and stands up. When any number on that card is called, they must sit down. That’s how you get to the last man standing.
