Croissants and Checklists . . .

This morning started out on a good note. I woke up with no foot pain. I don’t know if it had anything to do with the fact that I used my Dr.

Foot Spa

Scholl’s Heated Foot Spa twice yesterday or not, but something worked.

And even after the foot baths, my foot was still very tender when I went to bed last night, so I was surprised to find the pain completely gone this morning.

But hey, I’m not going to argue about it.

And our day just continued to get better. Jan  had set out a bunch of the Galaxy Gourmet Croissants to rise last night. Our daughter Brandi gave us box of these for Christmas and they’re delicious.

They come as frozen solid little bricks about the size of a pack of cigarettes. but after rising overnight and popped in the oven for about 20 minutes, they come out hot, buttery, flakey and fantastic. And they come in two types, plain and chocolate filled.

Nick and Terry came over about 11:30, and along with coffee and croissants, we watched a number of episodes of The Big Bang Theory that we had on our DVR.

After a very enjoyable couple of hours, Nick got back to work writing and I worked outside, catching up on some of the chores I’d been putting off due to my foot problems.

Our friend’s Al and Adrienne called about 3pm to set up dinner for tomorrow night, and we’re really looking forward to seeing them again. Afterwards, it was starting to get hot outside in the sun, so I came in and took a nap.

About 5pm we all headed out for dinner. On the way our daughter Brandi called to pass on Landon’s latest feat of brilliance. She said he was eating something in a plastic bowl, and when he finished, she saw him pick the bowl and head into the kitchen. Hearing a ‘clank’, she went into the kitchen and found that he had tossed the bowl up over his head and into the sink. She figured he had watch her put dishes in the sink and he was just helping out.

Better not give him anything made of glass, though.

Our first stop was Bookman’s, a great used book store. But not just books, they also have used musical instruments, used video games, and more. It’s a great place to browse.

Leaving Bookman’s, our next stop was Poco & Mom’s, our favorite local Mexican place. They do a great job with the New Mexico Hatch Green Chilies on their enchiladas, and a really good Chile Rellano. We always make sure we eat here several time when we’re in Tucson.

On our way home we stopped off at a Quik Mart, and Nick and I bought some MegaMillions lottery tickets. There’s a drawing for over $200 million tonight, and although I’m probably not going to win, I certainly won’t win without a ticket.

Wrapping things up tonight I want to pass on a neat new free Android app called RV Checklist.

Done by the people at RV Adventure Treks, it comes with several different sample checklists.


You just touch each red square and it checks it off for you. When all items are checked off, the app tells you you’re done.

But the really neat part is that you can modify their checklists, or even better, upload your own lists.

And did I mention it’s free?
