New Year's Day 2015 until Jan. 10 - Thurs., Jan. 1-10

No work. Thank goodness! We slept in until noon. So very nice to cocoon on a cold day.

From Friday, Jan. 2 to Sunday, Jan. 4,  I worked three ten-hour days at the RV park. On Monday, Jan. 5, I slept in again. Monday was "chores day" with laundry, cooking, and shopping on my plate.

Tuesday the 6th, Susan, Darren, Peri and I did the 10 km (6.2mile) Missions Volksmarch. We met at Mission San Jose to sign in for our walk, and then drove to Mission Concepcion where the walk started.

Every time we walk along the San Antonio River, I am amazed by the birds and turtles we see. This time, we also saw the ever present tower crane. You see, there is a lot of building going on in San Antonio.

A few major building projects in San Antonio are: a huge addition to the Convention Center, new apartments near the Blue Star Arts Complex, a new children's museum on Broadway, new Emma Hotel at The Pearl (formerly the Pearl Brewery), new hotel on the Museum Reach of the San Antonio River, Victory Medical Center, Forest Park Medical Center, Children's Hospital renovation, new buildings at University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA), and Embassy Suites is breaking ground in April 2015 on a six-story hotel in south San Antonio. Already completed was the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in downtown San Antonio. Wow!

Sorry, I got sidetracked. Back to the Volksmarch...the walk was mostly along the San Antonio River from Mission Concepcion to the Blue Star Arts Complex in King William District.

When our walk was over, I went back to the fifth wheel and met Bob for our date to Texas RV Supply, The Big Bib BBQ, and Camping World. First stop, Texas RV Supply. We needed to replace our C02 sensor, our fire alarm, and our propane alarm. We also needed a yellow light cover for an outside light. The service at Texas RV Supply was great. Within a few minutes we were shown where everything was and dropped $200!

Camping World in New Braunfels was having their own "RV show" and we had a date to look around at their new and used inventory. It was fun to traipse in and out of 5th wheels and motorhomes. One thing is certain, we can't afford even a used motorhome. We fell in love with the floor plan of a brand new Forest River Cardinal 5th wheel. Now we know when we're ready to trade in our 2003 5th wheel in a few years, we will look for a used Cardinal. Of course, we'll look at other 5th wheels as well because we like to make a choice that works well for us. We still love our used Holiday Rambler Presidential after living in it for three years.

Quite a fun day today. On the way home from Camping World we stopped at The Big Bib BBQ to use our gift certificate. Both of us had turkey plates with sweet potato casserole and salad. Yummy stuff.

Wednesday, Jan. 10, we had our weekly staff meeting at the RV Park. I worked my regular hours of Wednesday through Saturday.

You just never know what we'll be up to next. Stay tuned.
