We found out on Saturday that Mr. SS would be working down south again next week. I found a campground in Chino which is located near where he will be. Rather than get up at 3:00am Monday, we decided to leave about 9:00 Sunday night and would look for a rest stop near his job to spend the night.
About midnight, as we neared our destination we realized we would have to pull over somewhere.
It is kind of a joke among RV'ers that if all else fails you can always pull into a Walmart parking lot. Haven't you ever noticed all the RV's usually out by the Garden Center? Driving down Imperial Highway, we spotted ...yes a Walmart. Why not? There were several rigs there, we would just quietly pull over and sleep. We found the spot farthest away we could, and slept. The Campground was still a ways away and I don't drive the motor home, so it was decided I would stay there and Mr. SS would go to work and at 2:30 when he got off, we would go on to the campground.
Looking out my window I could see this:
Here I am parked in the far back corner.
If you know me, I always have to have a little green and flowers around me.
Yep outside my window.
We talked later and we both felt a little guilty about staying here.
What's a girl to do all day? I can't sew unless I turn on the generator. (No, don't want to bring attention to the fact I am "living" in a Walmart parking lot.)
Well, this girl went shopping. Not once, but twice. Two baskets full.
Do you think I was feeling maybe what I bought kinda "Paid the rent"? No way! I'm just a girl who likes to shop. It really was a nice Walmart...as Walmart's go.
Mr. SS arrived right on time from work and we arrived shortly here.
We set up, had dinner and took a walk.
Sure glad I took my camera.
Right across from our spot, we watched the sun go down.
The next morning when I opened the curtains, this is what I see all around me. Lot of green grass and trees.
Not too many campers until the weekend, so, it is so quiet and peaceful.
It was warm enough at 8:00am to sit and do my devotions (reading my Bible in a year)
Lots of green and trees, but no flowers.
But not to worry...I will be surrounded by flowers all day as I cut out dresses for 7 granddaughters.
(actually 6, as one is done already, but I folded it to put with the other "flowers" for the picture.)
Life really is Sew Sweet and we have so much to be thankful for.
Whether it is a Walmart parking lot, or a beautiful campground, God takes care of us.
I am reminded more and more often that
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
