Hot Chore Day and Thank You.

Our Location today is Moore Haven, Florida.

I could get used to this sleeping when I’m supposed to at night. Unfortunately Kathy has been having a back pain for the last few days and it is affecting her sleep. I was up at 7:00 an hour earlier than she was this morning busy reading the morning blogs. Once she was up we immediately had breakfast because today was a chore day, Laundry.

The first thing was to change the bed linens and flip the mattress in hopes that would relieve Kathy’s back pain. I had the bed nearly finished and was about to put the bed cover on when I noticed that I’d forgotten to put the mattress pad back on. After stripping the bed a second time I got it right with everything the way it’s supposed to be. Now it was my turn to turn on the Air Conditioner because the outside temperature had already reached the lower 80’s and the humidity was noticeable. 

Once everything was sorted and loaded in the truck we headed down the road to Clewiston where we had multiple stops planned. The first place was the laundromat that we had found the other day when we decided to explore the town much more closely. This place was fairly new with a variety of standard top load and commercial front load washing machines. They had two dozen commercial front load dryers that only needed thirty minutes to get everything dry. The best part was the clothes didn’t have the high Sulphur smell in it that we got using the laundry at the resort. 

Next we went to McDonald’s for our Chicken Nugget lunch topped off with an Ice Cream cone to help us cool down before we went over to the self-serve car wash to get the pollen off the truck. 

The last stop was at Walmart where we picked up the few food supplies that we were starting to get low on before we went back to the trailer where the AC had cooled it down nicely. 

Kathy and I would like to thank everyone for their prayers for our daughter Karen and the comments about texting while driving. Many states in the U.S. and provinces in Canada such as Ontario already have passed laws against such things but some people just don’t get it. Now with one such act that young man has taken away the normalcy of many other’s lives.   

Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
