Katie and I loaded up The Palms on Monday and drove down to Santee Lakes RV Park. We were two weeks early, so we lost the site I originally reserved, but I was lucky to get one at all! I didn't realize what a snowbird area this is, and there were only three sites available for a 30-day term. Two were very short and close to neighbors, and one was more for a longer rig and had room on the sides, leaving enough space between rigs. After being in the desert for six weeks, I didn't want to have to look into people windows every time I glanced out my window, so this one works fine for us.
So, we're here for a month. I haven't been out much, just for Katie's walks. We aren't going far, but I'm trying to go a bit further each time. I'm finding I've lost my day to day "routine," and guess it'll come back as I feel better. I'm still resting a lot, but I see the surgeon tomorrow, and I'll ask him if I'm taking it too easy on myself, or if I should be doing more at this point.
Tom's house is so comfortable, and the big bed in the guest room was a dream to sleep in, but it sure is nice to be home. Now that I'm feeling better, I'm finding myself getting a little bored. Too well to sleep all day, and not quite well enough to be running around doing my normal stuff.
Plus, I'm disappointed that the TV here isn't very good. I'm only getting a few channels, and not the ones with the best programs. I had a "box" for the old TV that was in here and I got more channels, but I gave it away, thinking I didn't need it with my new digital TV. But I'm finding the few channels I'm getting are only digital, and I get none of the "air" channels. I think I used to get both when I had the box hooked up. Do you think I still need a cable box, with the digital TV, if I'm on the antenna?
When we drove in on Monday, I saw more large birds along the entry road lakes than I saw all last June. I finally stopped and got the camera. I'm hoping to get lots more when we're walking more.
There were tons of ducks of all colors, too, fishing and swimming. They were really loving the rain! We had a couple of days of grey skies, but for the last couple of days it's been really nice here, and the weekend is supposed to be HOT.
Even though I'm not posting as much while I'm recovering, I am still reading all your blogs, and can't wait until I'm back to normal and having as much fun as you are!
That's it for today - From Me and Katie, have a great Thursday evening, everyone! :)
