Our morning started off as usual. Coffee, conversation, and scheming. We have both noticed that our clothes are a little tighter fitting these days, so Teresa insisted that we start to power walk.
Funny thing. One of the things we were looking forward to on this journey, was walking and hiking, and maybe even shedding a few pounds. Well, that has not been the case. We feel like we are on vacation mode, so every evening we are watching movies, and having some kind of munchies.
I think once we start spending more time in one place, we will be able to start up an exercise routine.
So, with Teresa in the lead, we zigged and zagged through the park for about a 30 minute walk. With the cooler temperatures today, it felt quite invigorating.
I brought out our lawn chairs, and we enjoyed a coffee in the warm sunshine. We were in shorts and T-shirts, and as long as we were in the sun we were very comfortable.
This park allows campers to wash their rigs on site. A lot of parks don't, so we wanted to take advantage of this. While my bride busied herself inside, I started on the car.
Oh, brother. While we were in Hannibal, Missouri, a truck in front of us spilled its contents of liquid asphalt sealer all over the highway. It was impossible for me to avoid it completely, and one side of our silver car was caked with the stuff. Luckily, we were not in the motorhome at the time.
I brought out my bottle of Bug n' Tar remover, and hoped for the best. Just as I thought, this stuff is not going to come off without a lot of blood, sweat and tears. I spent entirely too long and the results were so-so. Darn.
I waved my little white flag, and decided that we will have to live with it. I washed the rest of the car, and it isn't that bad, I guess.
Next, I brought out my awning cleaner, and tackled that job. The worst part of that job is using a brush over your head, with the soapy solution running into my eyes and face. Yuck.
By this time it was nearly supper, so we decided to bring out our Weber BBQ, and I made pork chops. I googled how long to cook them, and was surprised that they only needed about 6 minutes. I was a little apprehensive taking them off that soon, but Teresa said they were the best we have ever had. I guess I was always over cooking them before. Huh.
Teresa came back from doing the laundry, just in time for us to make popcorn and watch our favorite TV show - Survivor.
We are going to go to bed early tonight, so that we will be in fine shape for our "power-walk" tomorrow !
