Where has the time gone?

Wow!  It's been 2 months since I posted anything.  I have been very busy doing spring cleaning at home, cleaning the RV, starting yardwork, running to meetings, publishing the ABWA newsletter, the church newsletter, and the ABWA trifold.  Jerry has been in and out of the hospital but is on the mend now.

I am so lucky to have good friends, great family, and wonderful opportunities.

Well, it's been a whole month since I wrote on this blog.  During that time the snow melted--finally.  I took the RV over to a friend's house for an oil change, tire check, and overall check-up.  Then I loaded up my cats and warm blankets, electric heaters, sewing machine, maps, etc. and headed west to Indiana for Easter. 

We were very fortunate that the weather warmed up.  It was very comfortable camping out that week.  I even turned on the air conditioning one day.  On Easter Sunday it was sunny and warm.  We played cornhole in the front yard.  You can see by the photos that it was also quite windy.

We came back home and enjoyed some more warm weather for awhile.  But we've also had rain, sleet, and snow.  My daffodils are up and the redbud is in blossom.  The trees are beginning to bud.  Yardwork awaits. I bought some herbs to plant in the front flowerbed. We never count on really good weather until after the Maple Festival which will be next weekend.  Then we should be home free! :-)

We still have 2 feet of snow behind the motorhome. I hope I can back it up and drive it around to recharge the battery soon.

Today was a sunny but cold day.  Although the thermometer showed 30 degrees the windchill made it feel much worse.  I took a nice walk on the bike trail and trudged through the foot of snow.  Someone else had broken the trail but it was uneven and hard work to walk in their footsteps.

I started up the RV this morning and backed it up a few inches to get the weight off of the same spot on the tires.  It felt good to go inside and start the motor.  I always like the smell - a new car smell inside.  Only a couple of months before I can get back out on the road again.

The Olympics

I have watched more of the winter olympics than I usually do.  The announcers have made it more interesting by telling the stories of the contestants.  It is pretty exciting to keep up.  Now that I'm retired I can afford to stay up late until the end.

Cleveland Playhouse

Another great show today at the Cleveland Playhouse-"Ain't Misbehavin'" 
The cast danced and sang 30 songs for over 2 hours.  What professionals!  The orchestra was excellent as well, especially the piano man.

The last two days I stayed home and loafed.  The snow outside looked pretty with the sun shining on it.  I was perfectly happy to stay home by the log fire with my cats and play on the computer.  I did a few household chores, baked brownies and bread, did the laundry, balanced the checkbook, and watched a little TV.  This is so unusual for me.  I like to get out and run errands, cross country ski, visit Jerry and Hoby, and DO something.  I don't think I was sick but I just felt like a homebody.  I'm sure I will make up for it another day.
