On Saturday evening .. .after the outside chores were completed ..
my beloved vacuumed the house. ..so I could leave.
He wondered. .. ."can you do the five hour drive?"
I wondered .. ."how early can you get up?"
I woke up at 4:30. . .and we were on the road by 5:00 AM.
Having no coffee in hand . ..
we pledged to one another ..
that we could make it up the mountain and enjoy some breakfast at Manning Park Resort.
We got there at 7 ish .. and they open on Sundays. . .at 8 ish.
So .. .we drove to Princeton to the A&W to enjoy a hearty and delicious bacon & EGGER.
At their door .. was a sign .. no coffee.
Surely they jest .. .
The girl said .. "oh ..we've had the worst morning .. the coffee maker blew up"
I glanced in the obvious direction and saw the coffee maker appearing unblown. .
but gave her the appropriate sympathizing response.
My beloved. ..ran across to Chevron and came back with two large fairly fresh dark roasts. .
and I ordered up two bacon & EGGERS .
We rode into Osoyoos town ..
which is Canada's very own dessert.
It was still too earlyto claim our campsite .. . so we went to our favorite little store ..
the Home Hardware ..
where instead of purchasing my souvenir at the end of holiday . .
I picked it out first . .
They had an assortment of gravity lounges that I now affectionately call the
Oh . ..bliss.
My beloved packed my prize out of the store ..
and tucked it safely into the storage compartment of the trailer.
we backed into our spot ..
unloaded the Ankle reducer ..
and there I sat . . .
whilst the all important connections were made.
He connected the manly things. .
while I connected my notebook.
Our last camping trip. .
we had cable and wi fi ..
this camping trip. .
we have wi fi . .
and our next planned trip. .
we'll have the mountains and lakes .. .
and I'll not be reporting ..
Since I get but one Sabbatical a year. .
I save it. .
and report to you each day this week. .
from #197 . . .
Thank you .. .from the bottom of my heart for covering me in your prayers. .
I'm feeling much better. .
It may be the Ankle Reducer ..
but I rather suspect I've been blessed with healing.
Speaking of prayer . ..
the dessert here has seen no rain in months . .
but as we ate under our awning ..
the rain fell. .
"I prayed for Judy's corn crop" .. .I said. .
All for now . .
