Winter 2010 - 2011 travel blog

Full moon behind the clouds. Looks more like Halloween than spring in...

Good Morning.

I know, I know, I missed Monday's blog. I had a bit of a relapse last Friday and haven't been feeling too spry.

I'm feeling a bit better now – just really tired. I even went to the Library yesterday and shelved books and DVDs. Of course, I had to sit about 6 times to rest and it took me 1 ½ hours instead of ½ hour – but I got 'er done. I also took about an hour nap when I got home.

Today I'm going to do at least one load of laundry from start to putting away and see if I can get a short walk in. Tomorrow, we are going to head to Parker for some groceries.

It rained over ½ inch on Sunday. I thought it was really neat until I was checking email on the computer and got dripped on. It looks like we have a leak somewhere on the roof and/or windshield on my side of the rig. I whipped out some towels and a small cake pan and we caught most of the drips. Ron has been up to check it out and will probably caulk it this afternoon when it gets the warmest. We gave it a few days to dry out as the weather has been sunny but cool here this week.

Last Saturday night was the full moon. It was also cloudy and I got this picture of the moon behind the clouds. Looks like it should be Halloween. The little lights under the moon are the lights of the town of Hope about 4 miles east of us. That's where they have the sign that says “Your now beyond Hope”. Someone should have taught them how to spell “You're” but the sign is cute. We tell people that we live between Hope and Brenda, the town to the west. OR that is what we did before the roundabout. Now it is the main landmark.

I have found out how to keep warm during the night during this bout of sickness. One night I was really cold while reading in bed so I put my light-weight hooded sweatshirt jacket on. When it came time to turn off my light I was too sleepy to take off the jacket so just went to sleep in it. During the night I pulled the hood up as the back of my neck was cold. Does that ever make a difference!! I know now why the pioneers wore night caps. Not only the back of my neck but my shoulders and head stayed much warmer. I've been wearing it for the last 3 or 4 nights and I have rested much better and felt better in the morning. I might have discovered a new cure for the crud!!

Anyway that is the way our lives have been going. Hope you and yours are well and happy. ENJOY!!
