On Sunday afternoon, our good friends Sienna and Jack, who live in Sechelt, B.C., hosted a potluck dinner for some friends at their beautiful home here in Desert Hot Springs. Sienna and Jack had rented this same home to friends for the month of February while they moved into the Sands with their trailer. Although Sienna will continue to come to the Wednesday Quilting Club here at the Sands she still wanted to host a little “good-bye party”.
Like most RV’ers, we never pass up any reason for a good party – especially when it promises to have great food. The Quilting Ladies quickly organized appetizers, salads and desserts while Sienna cooked an absolutely fantastic Pork Roast. The guys took care of the chairs and the liquid refreshments for the most part.
Sienna and Jack’s home is in a gated community right near the town of Desert Hot Springs. All the homes are brand new and after living in our 5’er now for a few months it was quite fun to walk through a house with different rooms, a really big refrigerator, oven and even a dishwasher – wow! Of course, there was also a large washer and dryer – all the comforts of home for sure!
The only problem we had was getting past the security gate at the entrance to the compound. The codes we had didn’t seem to work but after several futile attempts to open the gates we were saved when Jack arrived at the entrance to let us in. Soon after that, we were all sitting outside on their patio enjoying the bright sunny day.
One of the things I find interesting about getting together with a group of folks from the same RV Park we’re staying in is that I find out a whole bunch of things I never knew and some I never even imagined. I guess in a park with over 500 sites it stands to reason there is lots of stuff going on so it was interesting and fun to listen to all of the different stories about “life in the RV Park”!
Paulette did the laundry yesterday morning and when she came back she strongly suggested I buy myself some new shorts for wearing with my t-shirt and sandals uniform. Rather than argue, I hopped into our truck drove down to WalMart and found the exact same Wrangler brand shorts I like in no time. Much to Paulette’s surprise I was back within 30 minutes with 3 new pairs of shorts!! No problem!
We were back home at the Sands just before it was beginning to get dark. Molly and Rylie heard the truck and loudly welcomed us home. We just spent the rest of the evening watching a few TV shows and browsing on our computers.
Have a great Monday, and thanks again for visiting!
