Time Change, Electricity and Cabbage Soup

Well, it has been a few days since my last post, the weekend has come and gone and not much is happening here. I could make up some things to keep you entertained but that wouldnt be quite right.

I survived the time change but it sure does mess with your mind. It used to be almost daylight when I went to work but now it is dark again. Always daylight when I get off. I read where it saves energy by not burning electricity but you can't tell that on the rooute I take to work. Most houses have at least one outdoor light on, some have two, and some have the outside lit up all over. There are those people who burn their inside lights all night too. And lots of people forget to turn out the basement lights and they burn for days. I would hate to have their electric bills.

That is a plus to RVing or camping. You don't really burn a lot of electricity. You can use solar and the bare minimum of electricity. You can go to bed early and get up early. Use a flashlight or candles if you need light. Propane or battery lanterns also work great. Flourescent or battery operate lights also work well. Think of how much you can save on your electric bill.

I made the usual trek to Walmart on my days off. They needed my money and I wanted to make sure they stayed in business so I helped them out. Got a $20 pair of jeans for $5. Other than that I spent most of the weekend surfing the net. I did take time to go visit the little grand girls. They are so cute and so smart. I know my grandson will grow up to be president someday.

Food for the weekend was Cabbage Soup and Garlic cheese bread. It was quite tasty. Now its Monday and back to work. Maybe this week will be more exciting.

And in the words of my father "That's it for Today".

Jenny I was up in your area last weekend. Well I was in my mind. I got a new trip planner and I have been practicing on it. I found myself just across the line from your favorite lake. I can not say the name much less spell it but you know where I am talking about. I know what you mean about the electric. We are too saving in our 5ver all the time.
