They Wasted No Time
May 2, 2016
|The good folks here at Mark Twain Cave wasted no time putting me to work. We arrived yesterday and were mostly set up before the rain began.
By the time our day was ended yesterday, Marilyn & I were exhausted. We were in bed shortly before 10:00 PM and didn’t get up this morning until after 7:30. We were faced with lots of work ahead of us so as soon as we finished off our coffee, I took my shower and dressed for the day.
I helped Marilyn change the linen on the bed and then went outdoors to finish the few remaining items on the “set up” list.
Marilyn went into her cleaning and laundry mode. She used our own machines as well as the Campground laundry to complete six loads of laundry.
I went to the office and checked my guide schedule. They wasted no time putting me to work with nine tours scheduled before I finish my work week on Friday afternoon. It is all good because I know they have been swamped with school groups.
I returned to the RV to find Marilyn still working with the laundry. She was almost finished so I gave her a rest and peeled potatoes and cut up a large sweet onion to make potato soup.
It wasn’t long before the tantalizing aroma of that potato soup filled the RV, making my mouth water.
When the soup was nearly ready, I added the final ingredient, three slices of hot pepper cheese, torn into smaller pieces.
Of course the celery salt, milk, salt and pepper had already been added to the mix.
It was a cool, overcast day here in northeast Missouri so that soup tasted really good!
Jennifer and the two grandkids came in to visit as soon as school was out for the day.
In spite of some light rain, Colby wanted to shoot some hoops so we walked down to the basketball area.
Once the company headed home, Marilyn & I ate leftover potato soup for dinner and then settled down to watch “Dancing With the Stars”.
Life is Good!
