Cabin Fever Got To Us – We Had To Get Out
The Joy of a New Washer/Dryer
Another chilly morning but as I’ve discovered that is the new norm for the time being. A few minutes with the furnace running, then switch over to our little electric heater and all is good. Provided we keep the door between the front and back closed. We don’t need to run the heat in the bedroom, we have enough blankets to keep us roasty, toasty warm.
Cabin fever got hold of us today. I know, I know it’s to early for that. Sorry, we had to get out. So how do you get out, get some fresh air and still avoid crowds?
You go someplace local, like on the other side of our loop.
Where you discover this Memorial Park.
Come walk with us as we enjoy this beautiful park.

We’re through the first section. Hope you enjoyed the beauty of this part of the Memorial Park. Tomorrow or the day after or maybe – well sometime in the future – we’ll go back and visit the second section. It’s not like we’re going anywhere soon.
I never in a million years though that I could get so excited about such a mundane item as a washing machine. But both of us agree, it is an absolute treat to be able to do laundry here in Elvira. Laundromats are now a thing of the past. Which during these trying times is a blessing indeed. Our laundry is all done and we are absolutely thrilled that we never left home to do it.
Another day on The Road of Retirement is at an end. It has been a great day in every way. We’ve gotten outside for some fresh air. We found an unexpected treat right here in the Park. Our laundry is done and we didn’t have to go anywhere to do it. Yes, another great day given to us to live and enjoy by God Himself.
Thanks for joining us again today. We always appreciate your company and your comments. Catch you tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Elvira and it’s two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.
See you on down the road!

Beautiful landscaping with many different cacti. No mowing, trimming, weeding. I think I’d like that.😊 So glad Barb has that washer/dryer and can do the laundry while relaxing in her recliner. Life IS Good.
