This is what happens when I take a week off, the weeds grow twice as fast and I get so far behind.
It was a good week, though, for the most part. We had a good driving team, Bill and Peggy Brough.
It is always a comfort to me to have two drivers for a long trip, also to have someone you know really well.
Our stay in South Dakota was okay for the most part, although our room was no Hilton, by a long shot!
It was a little hole in the wall with poor lighting. One ceiling light had no bulbs whatever, the other one had only one when it should have had two. The bedside lamp was on the wrong side and couldn’t be moved. The air conditioner was a noisy beast. The bathroom floor was puddly due to the stool and tank sweating profusely. The bathroom door didn’t open all the way, but hey, at least one could close it!
Housekeeping was sporadic at best. One day three different people showed up to bring us clean towels. The next day no one showed up so I had to wash the towels so we’d have clean ones. But all in all, it was a good trip, safe, no unpleasant incidents. Praise God! Ah, home sweet home.
Tuesday, seemingly was one of those days when maybe I should have stayed in bed.
For starters, I had a horseshoeing appointment and that tends to make me slightly grouchy. I am gone all morning with lots of dead time and I’m often late picking up hubby. I like visiting with Larry, our horse shoer, but it’s just well, yes, I’m gone all morning. And then in the afternoon we had planned to go to Mattoon.
