We've had a busy morning already here at the Traveling Three Cats Ranch. Every morning starts the same way, with the "Good Morning" song I learned on my first day of kindergarten.
Good morning to you!
Good morning to you!
We're all in our places
With sunshining faces.
It's such a good way
To start out the day!
Sadie has a beautiful sopurrano voice. Smitty likes the purritone range.
I stitched the day's inchy.
And then we left to go do our grocery shopping. Sadie was taking her morning sunbath when we left.
We were supposed to do our grocery shopping yesterday, but yesterday turned into a "try again" day. We tried picking up a prescription at a nearby Walgreen's. After waiting in an interminable line, we learned it wouldn't be ready until the next day (today). (Try again.)
Then we were ready for some lunch, and so we used the Taco Bell app to get some fast food. We were sitting right in front of the Taco Bell, thus the descent into ruinous fast food. After waiting a couple of minutes, Mike went inside to pick it up. (His truck is too big to go through the drive-up window lanes sometimes.) When he got inside, he learned we'd actually ordered from a Taco Bell down the road. (Try again.) So we drove to the Taco Bell down the road only to find it closed. (What?!?) We'd already paid, and so then we had to figure out how to cancel the order and get a refund on the app. (Try, try again.) After that, we bagged the whole Taco Bell effort and found something even more unhealthy and fattening, but we were not deterred.
We wanted to take a look at the RV park we'd seen from the other side of the river. This turned out to be a good bet for a different visit. It's actually a county park, nice, and less expensive than the place we're staying now. So that worked out. Still, by then, we'd completely lost our appetite for grocery shopping and headed back to the trailer for coffee and naps. We decided to try again this morning. Now, shopping complete and truck fueled, we're ready to head out tomorrow for a different location. Vista, California, will be our last stop before we head for home in two weeks.
So it was kind of a wasted day yesterday, but I did some more on my slow-stitching piece.
Now the upper portion is stitched, and so I moved the hoop a little lower. I want to finish up the "customers" in the shop. It bothers me to have them only half finished. (Wouldn't you hate walking around with one of your arms unstitched?)
Oh yes, and I stitched yesterday's inchy. It's really hard to keep Sadie's little black furs off these pieces. I clean them off for a picture, but then when I see the picture, I see more furs. She sticks like velcro to anything she touches.
So the rest of the day we'll just hang out here, girding up our loins for a long drive tomorrow...almost 300 miles. It isn't so far, but it's farther than we've traveled in a while. I'll probably do some more work on the redwork piece. I'd like to get it finished. My other projects await.
