I cannot believe it’s been two months since I posted an update! Where is the time going?? Well, anyway. Here we are -still in South Carolina. We are enjoying our stay here, and as I write this, I realize that our assignment will be completed in less than two months, so I might as well start getting excited about our next adventure!! I really, really do hope we find one close by as we do not want to go too far this time.
Here at the refuge, we continue to enjoy our beautiful site. I love my running trails, the butterfly garden and the wildlife drive -and I do love volunteering at the visitor center, especially when I get to spend time reading and making crafts with the little ones during the monthly children’s program. I have been helping Jim with some light landscaping duties, but really -he does most of the landscaping around here. He enjoys keeping the area looking nice and neat, so he is out there pretty much every day.
Besides volunteering work, we also do have plenty of time to ourselves. I have been enjoying going to a church and a library nearby. So little by little, I am making friends in this area, which is good because we do not have any neighbors here, and sometimes we do miss having friendly faces around to get together and socialize.
Our grandson is due in October, and I cannot wait to meet him! Our daughter had her baby shower not too long ago and it turned out beautifully. I really enjoyed seeing her friends join her in the sweet celebration. My favorite part was that my mom was able to come by for the baby shower and she helped me so much in preparing for the shower, especially in making shower favors! I (of course) could not pass the opportunity to make soaps and cards and decorations and all kinds of crafty stuff for the baby shower.
Having my mom around for my daughter’s baby shower was so good, and I was so happy to be able to take out and give her a trolley tour of the beautiful town of Savannah and later took her to the Wormsloe Plantation. I was also glad that she got to meet our son-in-law and some of our cousins who came to visit us while she was here.
While I have been here in South Carolina, we have not been out and about very much. Typically, we would be hiking; but hiking right now is pretty much out of the question due to the mosquitoes, heat and the high humidity.
I am still continuing with my wellness and running routine and my crafting; so that keeps me peacefully busy. I have also been volunteering at the library reading to little ones and soon I will be giving classes on how to make soaps, so I am really excited about that!..
Well, that’s it for now my friends; hugs and Hasta Luego!!
