A Little Less Blah . . .

but still not back to normal.

But at least I didn’t  have to get up at 9:30 this morning.

But we did head out about noon for lunch and some errands. Our first stop was at Jason’s Deli where Jan got her Ham Muffuletta with a cup of Broccoli-Cheese soup, and I got a bowl of Chicken Chili and a side salad. Pretty much the usual for both of us.

Then it was on to the same client I tried to catch yesterday, with pretty much the same result. Called his cell but didn’t get an answer.

Then it was on to Wal-Mart for some things. One of the ‘things’ we were looking for was Hot Chocolate K-Cups for our new Hamilton Beach 2-Way Brewer.

One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of people must have gotten K-Cup brewers for Christmas because no matter where we go, we find the K-Cup coffee selection to be really picked over. At the same time the regular coffee section was well-stocked.

And we still didn’t find any Hot Chocolate K-Cups either.

After another unanswered call to my client, we finally headed home, getting back about 3 PM.  The first thing I did then was to disconnect and drain our shore water line, because we’re looking at 28° tonight and 26° tomorrow night. And having been burned once before in our early RV’ing days, I also disconnected our inline water filter and brought it inside. Once before when I didn’t do this, I found it’s very difficult to actually drain all the water out of one of these filters, and when I left it outside in 20 degree weather it split wide open. So now it comes inside, and we’ll just stay on rig water until Wednesday or Thursday when things warm up.

One thing that was interesting this morning was to watch the front come through. At 10 AM the outside temp here at the rig was 66 degrees. 40 minutes later it was 50 degrees. That’s a fast drop.

  1. I find the k-cup hot chocolate to be substandard and they use phony sugar (which I detest).

  2. We buy our kcups on Amazon. Since we are gate guarding our shopping is limited. My husband does not drink coffee so I buy Cafe Escapes Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa. He loves it! They also carry a milk chocolate, if you like that better.

  3. George,

    Which brands have you used?

  4. Debbie,

    I’ll probably order from Amazon once I find something we like, but the local stores seem to carry smaller sizes.

    That way we don’t waste too much if we don’t like it.

  5. I see the most K cup stuff at Bed Bath and Beyond

  6. The only k-cup hot chocolate I have ever tried was Swiss Miss. Mediocre. Found at Target or Walmart. I need to look on Amazon to find something better.

  7. I do like a lot of your quotes at the end of your blog entries. And today sure is a good one!! I would LOVE to send it to a couple people…heh, but not a good enough reason to start WW3 today!!

    Glad you are no worse…stay warm the next couple days…we watched the clouds all get blowed aside today too while out and about…and now tis getting real chilly for these parts!!

    If ever we get into rving, we surely will reread every page of your blog!! Thanks for all the good advice here!!

  8. I have two hot chocolate K cups left – and when I was looking for more last week, I couldn’t find any, either. I’m saving mine for special, when I REALLY want a cup of hot chocolate. Hopefully, though, I’ll find some at the store soon. They have tons of boxes of K Cups here in one of the tents at Quartzsite – really good prices, but they are nearing the “sell by” date. I went through them all – and no hot chocolate. I’ll stock up on coffee, though, while I’m here. 🙂

  9. I just found one by Green Mountain at Wal-Mart this afternoon that we’re going to try.

    I’ll let you know.

  10. Thanks, Elizabeth.
