On Friday night, we invited the RV Dreamers that are staying at Huntington Beach State Park (Dan & Tricia and Gyn & Syl) to our house to play either a board game or cards. The group chose the board game “Sequence.” However, before the game began, there was a pre-game warm-up.
Tequila Jell-O Shots for All
Bill was a bit hesitant…
Come on Bill, you can do it !!
Ugh... it tasted just like Nyquil ;o((
We had lots of laughs and stories all evening. Dan and Tricia came out the big winners for the night!! However, we were told that Gin and Syl beat them solidly the night before ;o)) Actually, I think we all came out winners spending time with good friends :o))
Saturday Nancy and I spent the day finishing up our Christmas shopping in the morning and Nancy spent the better part of the afternoon making stuffing, baking cookies and a pecan pie for Christmas at our daughter’s house.
The aroma from the kitchen
really put us in the Christmas spirit!!
While Nancy cooked, I was assigned the task of putting chocolate almonds into plastic bags. This was very technical job as each bag had to have exactly 24 almonds, a single serving. Then the bag needed to be tied with a ribbon. Finally, the ribbon had to be curled!!
Bet you thought ‘Curling’ was only played in the north ;o)
In the evening, we were invited by our friends, Bill and Chris, to see the “Night of 1000 Candles” at Brookgreen Gardens. Every year this display is held during weekends in December. It features live entertainment and tons of Christmas lights and candles.
We really had good weather this year (mid 50’s with very little wind) to take the leisurely stroll through the gardens. We’ve done this other years with the temperatures a lot colder and believe me warmer is better. What a nice way to end a couple of busy days.
I’ll let the photos share the Christmas Spirit with you!!
Our last stop was indoors to see the
It sure put us in the Holiday Spirit!!
Thanks Bill and Cris for such a beautiful evening :o))
On another note, our 6 month contract with our Realtor ends this coming week. Unless we get an offer and accept it this week, we have made the commitment to switch Realtors. The new agent we are going to list with was a guy we were very impressed with during the last interviewing process. We didn’t sign with him the last time because I (not Nancy) was not ready to hear that the value of our house had dropped so much and he would not want the listing from us at a price he knew he couldn’t sell. He told us that 6 months ago and he told us that again this week. I just didn’t want to accept that as fact, but when you look at the houses that have sold in this market, reality really stinks! I hate that when that happens and my hard-headedness has probably cost us several months without an offer. Only time will tell. Couple that with the fact that the new agent has been in contact with us every month since June and our current agent has never called me without me generating the contact and our decision became easy – time to change and get this place sold! Meeting with the RV Dreams friends this week confirms that the full-time RV lifestyle is what we want. Anyone want to buy a great house? We’re dealing!
