LOCATION: In our casita in Retama Village, in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Enough already of this cold, rainy weather! High 45
We started our Sunday morning with George’s traditional breakfast – grits and eggs. Today, he switched out the bacon for some smoked salmon. Tasty!
He took a day off from working on the roof, as he is sore all over. It can wait until the weather improves later this week.
The afternoon was filled by working on our photo presentation for tonight’s “Retama on the Road” presentation. Sometimes technology is so aggravating! We could not figure out how to sort the photos on George’s computer, so used my tablet. But, when we tried it out, the computer/TV hookup was not compatible with my Android. Aargh! Plan C – put everything on my phone to use.
Our new business cards arrived in the mail. We use these quite a bit when we are traveling….when people want to follow the blog, talk to us about Harvest Hosts or Trusted Housesitters. When we first started RVing, we were surprised at the number of people with business cards. Front and back….
George squeezed in a bit of pool (billiards), and then it was time for our Sunday night “Retama on the Road” first session. About 20 people attended. This evening’s topics were Florida, Nova Scotia, and Big Bend. A fellow Airstreamer just returned from a 2-month road trip to Florida, so he spoke quite a bit, and showed photos. I introduced Nova Scotia, and then a couple from Halifax helped me out with more information. There was a lot of conversation (which we had hoped for). We ran out of time, so I will finish up Nova Scotia next session, and introduce the topic of Big Bend.
DINNER: George braved the cool weather and grilled some a mahi mahi filet for us for dinner. I turned it into an Indian meal with Kitchari (thanks, Trader Joe’s!), toasted naan, and steamed peas.
