Piddlin' at the park

Today seemed like a super long day. I feel like I got a lot done but nothing at the same time. I know J' was working his lil' fingers to the bone, so he was successful with a hard days work! We went back to that park, Sportsman's Park, over by Davis Dam and parked in that RV spot.

It really is the perfect spot. We can park under the canopy and still get full sun for our solar panels, there's a table that we put the grill on to make lunch, we have our own personal trash can and there's a bunch of room to spread out. It was great! There's even a perfect place to put Savannah's leash so she can walk around the entire area, without it coming off when she's telling everyone that passes by that this is OUR area!

After our morning cafe' and chicken on the grill, J' went to work and I spread out on the table for a mani & was definitely time! I swear I worked on my nails for like three hours. It's a lot of work doing the full shebang: taking polish off, pushing back the cuticles, nipping off stuff that doesn't belong, buffing, cutting, filing, then actually painting them (base, two coats of color, and top coat) and letting them dry.

I sat (and did absolutely nothing) to let them dry fully. There's nothing more annoying than spending all of this time on your nails and then doing something to mess them up because you didn't let them dry all the way. I sat at the table for about 30-35 minutes, watching Savannah roll around, talked to J' and just sat.

 I had been waiting to use these colors for the fall season, I was pretty excited about it. After about 45 minutes (in all) of doing absolutely nothing, they looked and felt dry so I started doing little things, still being careful with them...just in case. Wouldn't you know 5 milliseconds later, I'm missing paint on my thumb and there are bulges on three other fingers....WHAT!!!? Oh my gosh, I tried to fix them and within 15 minutes ended up taking all of my fingernail polish off....ugh! So much for least my tootsies look good! I guess that's whatcha get when you buy cheap polish!

Moving on with my day...I got my 'puter out and started up my guitar videos and practiced for about 20 minutes. Sure doesn't take long for those fingers to start hurting! I did a little bit of work on the computer but saw that it was already starting to get dark...what the...? So Nana and I went on a little walk to get some exercise. She loves to run, I tell ya!!

 We hung out in the grass for a little bit, walked around down by the water and then came back up near the playground. I didn't notice it yesterday when we were here but this playground is so's like a butterfly or something and the floor is super cushy!

We hung out for just a bit longer, we were the only ones left in the park.

Even though it was only about 6:00 p.m. we didn't want to get shooed out because it was dark now, so we packed everything up and headed back to the casino lots for the night. We had a quick bite to eat to put something in our bellies...a Nutella's like dinner and dessert in one! haha Now it's tube & cuddle time with my babies. Nighttime is always the best time, we get to lay in our 'fort', watch TV (and even some people that have no clue there's anyone in 'that' van) and snuggle back into slumberland. Hey, it's a hard job...but somebody's gotta do it!
