Worldmark – Coeur d’Alene, Idaho 9/23/2013

SEPTEMBER 23, 2013 (Monday)

 

We all slept well. Nice and quiet here, along with being so very beautiful. We woke up to rain and it looks like it will be raining on and off for a couple of days.

We left around 11:00 AM to go into the Coeur D’Alene Costco to get Michael’s medication transferred.  Lex toured the grounds for us by driving down to a part we had not yet seen.

This restaurant is closed right now.  It looks like a nice place with the right crew in there.

When we got there, there were problems and it took a few phone calls before it was straightened out. We plan on going back this afternoon to pick up the medication. Next we headed to the Verizon Store to get Lexi’s new phone. That took just a short time and it will be shipped to their store within a few days. She has five days to ship her phone back to them.

We drove down Highway 95 to Rathdrum, but needed to be on Highway 41. Nothing was looking familiar to us. Stacey texted to say she was starving and where were we. We didn’t want to tell her we were lost, but we kinda were. Good thing Rathdrum is such a small town and things finally started looking familiar.

We got to Stacey’s place around 12:15 PM. Stacey is my sister-in-law. She was married to my little brother for almost 40 years. My little brother died last year and it’s been really hard on her, understandably. Anyway, we got to her place and then went to go to a nearby Mexican restaurant – but it was closed on Mondays. We ended up at the local sandwich shop connected to the Texaco gas station. They have really good sandwiches, but they’re weird like pastrami and turkey, or corned beef and salami. Strange but they work and they’re excellent.

We went back to Stacey’s place and just visited and shared stories. She showed us what she’s been doing and what’s changed at her place since we were last here last year for Buddy’s memorial service in August. She got a new shed put in, and has been trying to start a small business and trying to get it organized.

Around 4 PM we left. We could see Stacey was getting tired and we still had to go grocery shopping and back to Costco, which we did.

On our way “home,” we saw so many deer. Some really large herds. We also stopped at the front office up the hill and asked about parking for Stacey tomorrow. She wanted to get out of her house and come visit us. I think she’ll really enjoy it here.

So many deer on the way back to our home of the week.
