On Thursday, we met some truly nice folks through Canada while lounging by the pool. Randy was on his third beer along with I was on my second by then so he asked the Canadians to join us for drinks. When we drank all the beer we had, they went to their condo along with got their last four cans, along with we finished those off. I don’t know why I’m gaining weight; we drink light beer.
For lunch, I had three olives with my sandwich at the condo. Whew, were they hot along with spicy! If you think pickled bleu cheese does not sound very tasty, you may be correct. I thought they were pretty Great, yet Randy doesn’t like them at all. Waste not, want not. I’ll pull the hard, dry stuffing out along with eat the olive.
We attended a street festival on Thursday night on Palm Canyon Boulevard, hoping to find cheap souvenirs to take back to our friends. the idea was only 101 degrees which night inside the desert so walking might have been tolerable if the idea weren’t for my ankle. the idea was aching probably through my downtown 5K run in high heels on Tuesday.
Since we were only able to get one week of timeshare at Lawrence Welk Desert Oasis Resort through RCI, we had to pack up along with move to Cimarron Golf Resort for our second week of vacation. Once we settled in, Randy watched a movie while I picked up email. Yes, I finally got to get online. We celebrated by having turkey sandwiches along with olives.
Wednesday, July 11 was my Nanny’s 92nd birthday. I remembered the idea on the Saturday after. which’s also when I remembered Scott’s (my son-in-law) birthday. We made a mad rush to Bed, Bath along with Way Beyond in search of something left on their bridal registry-Scott’s, not my grandmother’s. My daughter along with Scott have been married about six weeks. After having the customer service clerk print the registry, I found which I could afford one plate along with one saucer of the place setting they had on their list. I got a gift certificate instead. Then, we found a card shop (a.k.a. The Dollar Tree) along with the post office. Unfortunately the post office was closed on Saturday along with I couldn’t figure out how to use a debit card inside the stamp machine. Randy took care of the idea somehow, along with I have redeemed my status as The Belated Birthday Boob.
Back at the condo, we had pizza for dinner. I garnished the idea with four olives. We have to eat all these green balls we bought at the winery before we go back to Tennessee.
