Settling in!

We spent yesterday doing a bit of a set up.  Colin as always did so much more.  Tire covers and mirror covers are now on, we are not moving this bus for a very long time!!  There are many little things that need doing to make this our home and that will happen over the next week.  I got the hummingbird feeder up which they found right away but have not yet discovered the birdbath I made for them.  The orioles are staring to come back as are some finches.  We are doing things but at a much slower pace.

Yesterday was big day in Canadian football.  It was the semi finals for both the East & West divisions.  Next Sunday will be the game of the season, the Grey Cup!  Yesterday the East was won by Winnipeg which is where Colin was born.  The West was a game between the Edmonton Eskimos ( where I was born and raised ) and the B.C. Lions where we live.  Donna & Brent from RV2 ( there are 2 RV parks here, we are in the smaller park RV1 and just 1/2 block away is RV2, a larger park, but all still Tres Amigos ) hosted a pot luck dinner.  I felt torn who to cheer on but in my heart I was pulling for the team from Edmonton.  The entire time we watched the game I kept seeing my Dad sitting in his living room in Edmonton practically playing each play with the players.  Sorry your team lost Dad.

It was a wonderful meal, surrounded by RVer friends ( even the Americans got into the spirit of the game ) and another perfect end to the day.
