Camping at Donner State Park

IMG_1389.jpg

The Donner State Park is located in Truckee, Ca.  There is a quite large campground with 3 loops. Two are closed right now as the season hasn’t really started.  We are in a lovely spot and there is almost no one here camping. The bathrooms are new and the showers look nice. We have another night here and then home. But except the fact that you can hear I -80 it is really nice.  I probably wouldn’t want to be here in the high season but still the camp spots are really spaced nicely.

B is actually working and seeing some accounts, so that’s kinda cool. We are in Tahoe City right now and then need to hit the grocery store for some dinner stuff. Also B had traded out for a new propane tank but last night we went to turn on the heater and there was nothing. So we need to stop and have it checked or buy a new one. It’s going to quite chilly tomorrow morning and so we will need some heat.

We also brought the bikes, soI’m going to bike around some this afternoon.  We’re heading down to another account in King’s Beach and then going to get some lunch ( I think). We might stop at one of the Lake Tahoe beaches for pebbles. There’s one I remember that had black ones but can’t quite remember where it was.

We leave tomorrow but another day would have been nice to as tomorrow suppose to be 71 degrees.

Happy Birthday to my darling girl…

My sweet daughter, Sachiko, is 33 YO today. Wow, where do the years go? I was her age when I had her so that’s weird. But being a mom to her and my son has been my greatest joy in this lifetime. I loved being a mom thru pregnancy, infancy all the way to now. I’m lucky as both my children are incredibly talented, smart and easy going and we all get along and actually always have even thru the teenage years.

So happy birthday!!

In the garden!! Our yard is full of beautiful flowers all due to her hard work.

Today is a gym day and then we’re going to Safeway to pick up a square of cake. They sell pieces and since we don’t eat a lot of cake, it’ll be just right.

I finished the LR zone and just need to do another vacuum tomorrow.

Tomorrow we’re taking the tent trailer up to the Truckee area to try camping at Donner Lake. We’ve actually never stayed there so I guess we’ll see. I only booked it because there is NOTHING else anywhere.  But it should be okay at least to check out. B will work his stores up there and then come back to camp with me. We’ll probably go over to Lake Tahoe Thursday which is a 15-minute drive from Truckee.  I’m not planning any Lodge meals, just going to wing it. There is a Safeway in Truckee so that may be where dinner comes from.

Still haven’t gotten my lab results in paper form but I’ll e-message again tomorrow if I don’t get a message. Since I know the results, I’m not worried but I do keep a paper copy of my labs to compare.

Well, off to do something.
