After spending two wonderful days in Fredericksburg, we were up yesterday and ready to get on with our mission.
It was a
foggy morning as we headed out, but soon the fog gave way enough for us to enjoy
the pretty flowers and
the highways through the Hill Country. We then made our way right on through and around
San Antonio to the less crowed Hwy 281 where once again we could enjoy more
wildflowers. By early afternoon we were in Edinburg, Texas where we stopped for fuel. Diesel was $3.03....summer is on it's way.
Once we were fueled up, it was on to our destination in Mission. Once we reached Retama, we parked on
our newly purchased lot.
From when we were here in January and February, it was nice to see all
the flowers in bloom and the grass so green.
Before we knew it, it was time to head to the Clubhouse for Pizza with several other couples. After dinner Sarah and Richard joined us at our motor home for a great visit and to make a plan for what we needed to accomplish in the next few days.
Today started leisurely...Mark was out and about washing the Jeep and the front of the motor home while I did a little inside cleaning.
While we were waiting for time to go to the attorney's office, we decided to discuss our plan for the coach house.
It already has a full sized
washer and dryer....
ceiling fan, a/c unit, some shelving, and lawn furniture.
bathroom is complete and the whole coach house has this
nice tile floor.
There are a few things that Mark and I want to change or do a little different, or just spruce up...but all those projects will have to wait until we return later this year.
But, for now, we needed to get on with today's plan.
We grabbed a bite of lunch, jumped in the Jeep, stopped for a brief visit with Jack and Danielle, picked up Richard and Sarah, and headed out on our day's missions. First, was the lawyer's office...paper's signed, sealed, and delivered! Then, it was off to the tax office and the water department.
After taking care of most of the items on our today's list, we decided we were hungry...and with that we also decided that the rest of our business could wait until tomorrow!
So....our mission in Mission is...to be continued....
