This morning I decided to stay at least another day in this peaceful setting. I can count the number of cars that have passed by the site today on one hand - and two of them were city trucks emptying garbage bins, etc. This afternoon another RVer showed up and parked about 200 yards from us; not bad, we'll share the wealth.
Ah, today was one of those days I take as a gift. Here I am at 5:45 in the afternoon, still in my new, warm red plaid flannel PJs. I love it. I spent a good part of the day working on some Excel spreadsheets I've been wanting to develop for Floribunda and Petunia, bringing together all the background information on their maintenance, the status of the maintenance record now and, finally, a schedule for proceeding with maintenance in the future.
Fortunately, the original owner of Floribunda kept meticulous records, albeit on lots of separate pieces of paper. I consolidated and organized his information, added what I've done / had done and made a "Want to do / Need to do" list for the future.
For Petunia, I essentially did the same thing. Although she's a 2008 model, she only has 14,000 miles on her, including the accumulation since I've owned her. So, she's still a babe as far as usage goes. But, in all that's happened with her clutch, etc, I've not had simple things like oil and filter change done. Now I have a spreadsheet to refer to when I take either vehicle in for regular maintenance. And, I have knowledge of where we stand if / when I head in for unplanned maintenance; so I don't have to feel at the mercy of their suggestions - at least not so much!
I'm not sure what's going on with the weather gadget on my blog; it's definitely not 81F here, as it's reading right now. I fooled with the weather gadget to indicate Oklahoma instead of Texas; but it's gone a little crazy. I'll work on it later ...
Only a couple of photos this afternoon ... taken about 15 minutes apart.
Taken about 5:25pm
Taken about 5:40pm
Now, it's back to my book. Good grief, I haven't read my book all day long!
