Long Time No See

Wow!!!  Am I ever inconsistent.  I haven't blogged in ages.  We all know how easy it is to let the little things slide as we deal with everyday life.  This is what I have done so just to bring you up-to-date we are spending the summer in Virginia this year.  There are 3 campgrounds in our system that make it easy for us to bounce back and forth from.  It helps save $$$ on diesel fuel too.  Currently we are along the Plankatank River just a few miles south of Saluda, Virginia.  It is very nice here.  The weather is great, except for the humidity, and the park is loaded with amenities.  One of which I have not encountered before.  It is a lawn sized chess board.  There is also a sauna, fishing ponds(catch and release) and of course the river.

Cookie is going gang busters with her baby blankets.  There is such a huge demand for her work she has little time for anything else.

Me, I am still writing, slowly.

This year we are trying our hand at container gardening.  We have a sweet chile pepper plant, 3 tomato plants, 2 ancho chile plants, mint and oregano.  So far we have been able to keep them alive.  We have had 2 sweet chile peppers ripen thus far.  They are spicier than I had anticipated.

See the one turning orange ..

Well, you would think after such a long time I would have more to say but I don't.  Everyone be well and have a good rest of the summer.

Still writing

Hi all.  We are still in South Carolina and I am still writing.  I am constructing another Geoffrey Hawk story.

We have managed to stay in Yemassee since late May.  We love this park even with it's obvious down falls.  I am almost acclimated to the humidity.  It still messes with my sinuses but what doesn't these days.

We have a knocking sound coming from the front end of the car.  I have determined it is not the engine.  Transmission maybe...front trans-axle more likely.  We run it till it dies then get something else.  Towing it behind the motor home probably hasn't done it any good.

We survived hurricane Irma just fine.  Evacuated the campground because of the trees.  We hid behind a large building about a half mile down the road.  It blocked most of the wind.  The park maintenance cleared the big limbs so we were only out about 24 hours.  Good thing too because the heat and humidity returned quickly.

As of right now we are scheduled to leave here around October 17, but all that could could change at any moment.  We are still flighty.  LOL.

Cookie's book is doing well.  She works hard at getting it out there.

I now have 5 more books in the mill so keep an eye open for more adventures from Geoffrey Hawk.

With summer winding down we start thinking about the holidays.  Everyone stay safe...
