Wednesday, December 18
I’m online most of the day, which is a travesty because the weather is balmy here on Sidewinder Road west of Yuma. Except for the time I sit outside washing dishes in a basin, I’m inside the Best Little Trailer.
I pay bills, answer comments, clean up files, transfer photos to a memory card, write emails, etc. and, best of all, buy stuff through Amazon!
What do I order?
I take a huge gamble and order curtains and curtain rods. Anyone who has ever bought curtains knows what a crap-shoot it is in the best of circumstances. Buying curtains online? Insane!
No, I’m not showing you the curtains.
If they’re totally wrong, you don’t need to see my mistake. If they’re everything I hope and imagine, you can bet I’ll splash photos of them all over this blog.
The mini-blinds that come with a Casita are okay.
They’re bright and new and NOT BENT. However, that doesn’t last. Mine have suffered much battering and they look awful.
Now you know why I haven’t posted many interior shots lately. These piggy blinds have got to go!
What else did I order?
A 12-volt car vacuum, a SONY memory card, and . . . drumroll please . . . a Kindle paperwhite! What a Christmas this year! SiriusXM radio and a brand new Kindle . . . sweet.
I ruminate on the future.
I can see a pattern that will serve me and the crew well. Spring, summer, and fall are the seasons for travel and adventure. Winter is the time for maintenance, repairs, shopping, catching up on blog pages, reading, rest, relaxation, and reflection.
Yuma is the best place I’ve found for a winter hiatus.
It’s warm, services are available, and I can boondock for free as long as I want in the area off Ogilby Road. For a change of scenery, Mittry Lake and Kofa Wildlife Refuge are alternate places to camp. It’s a good plan that suits me.
I hope you’ve enjoyed wandering down memory lane through these old photos.
THANK YOU, RVSUE SHOPPERS!
