Today I am Thankful for the opportunity to meet new friends.

Today I am thankful for the opportunity to meet new friends.  Well, really someone I have known for awhile but just now got the chance to meet her in person.

Birdie (Nancy) is one of the members of Women's RV Forum that I belong to and she called today in the middle of our lunch and said she was coming here to Lone Star Corral for the night on her way to Lost Maples State Park.  We had planned to connect tomorrow evening but got to meet a day early.  I explained that I had a meeting with the CPA in Hondo after lunch but I would be back in the office close to 2:00 and I would see her then.

So off to my meeting.  Received a nice compliment from the CPA when she told Kay & Judi that I do a great job on the books for the park ~ I always think I do a good job but hearing it from someone else is always nice.  After the meeting we returned to the park.  And what was hubby doing ~ weeding the flower beds in front of the office.  Wish I had a green thumb and knew what to plant there to make it look pretty ~~~ suggestions are welcome, hint, hint, hint.

Any way, once I was back in the office, this gal walked in and smiled and said "Hi Ali" and right away I knew it was Birdie.  Out the office door and big hugs were shared.  Unbeknownst to me, Ron had already got her parked in a site, she just needed to do the paperwork.  Got that all squared away and she was off to drive to Lost Maples to check the route.  And I went back to work. 

Finished up with work and headed over to do laundry - that never ending job.  When I got home 2 1/2 hours later Ron said Birdie had been by to see if I wanted a glass of wine.  So we quickly ate dinner (thank goodness for the crock pot - I use it probably 3 or 4 times a week.  If you have a favorite dish you cook in your crock pot, please share it with me, another hint :)

And then I was off with a glass of wine to go and visit with Birdie.  We visited for about an hour and then we both yawned and then giggled...and off I was back to the motor home.  We will get more visiting in the next 2 1/2 days as Ron and I are going to Garner State Park tomorrow after my doctor's appointment with the cardiologist ~ just a follow up.  We are going to be at GSP Wednesday night and then move over to Lost Maples Thursday mid-morning and stay there the night and then come back to the park in the afternoon on Friday.

Thankful that Gordon & Diana (the assistant managers) were willing to swap days with us.

I don't know what kind of reception/signal I will get up there with my Verizon mifi card so if you don't hear from me I will be back for sure on Friday night.

Take care all and have a truly blessed night/day.
