Thursday we had planned to go to Kings Ranch, in Kingsville TX, and athough the weather was once again nasty, we took our bumbershoots, lunches and jackets and headed out on the approx 150 mile trip. Dave and Janet begged off (more of this illness stuff that keeps going around!), so we were solo in our car, while Jim/Joan, Joe/Sandy rode together. The plan originally was to find a nice picnic area and have lunch, prior to taking the noon tour. Well, with the weather being what it was, we threw ourselves on the mercy of the folks at the visitor center. Since there was no one else there, they allowed us to have our 'picnic' in their media room, and they supplied the coffee! How cool was that!
Friday was once again a rainy, cold, miserable day - we got 5 inches of rain in 30 hours, so no one was happy, even Cinder. She's not real fond of getting wet, kind of like us! We spent the day snuggled in, reading and playing on our Wii - we're both trying to get at least 20 minutes a day on exercise, mostly balance and yoga. We're hoping that if we must be fat, we should be fit - and most of all we want David's blood work to improve!
Today we awoke to more drizzle, and chilly temps. We went with our 'crew' to the Masonic lodge where they serve an all you can eat breakfast for $4 - we got our money's worth, then stopped by the Fulton Farmer's Market where it was simply too cold to even get out of the car - and the vendors were all in their vehicles trying to stay warm!
We then visited the local H.E.B. store where we got some groceries for tomorrow.
That brings us up to date - this evening we are having leftovers for dinner, I made taco soup yesterday that is calling our name!
