Get set…again

Today went a little better.  Mark gave me some specific cleaning assignments and I completed them, so I’m feeling better about myself.  In the meantime, he managed to get things pretty much ready in the RV and we also got his motorcycle loaded into the pickup truck.  We still have a fair amount to do tomorrow, and then we hope to spend the night tomorrow night in the RV so that we can pretty much head out on Monday.

Umm…On your mark…?

OK, so Mark and I were talking about things today and he says we probably could have left by Sunday except that we need to stop in Green Bay to pick up a part so the RV furnace will work, and the supplier won’t be open on Sunday.  It’s looking like we won’t be leaving Door County until Monday.

Get ready…

Well, we had aimed for getting out of here tomorrow, but it ain’t happening.  Besides the fact that we still have a lot to do to get ready, Mark can’t find the keys to the RV ignition, so he had to call a locksmith.  The locksmith is down in Green Bay and won’t be able to come up until tomorrow.

The cone of shame!

I guess I haven’t mentioned yet that we ended up keeping Tucson.  I had gotten a call from a neighbor saying that she’d heard of someone who might be interested in meeting Tucson, so I was getting all set to get rid of her, but Mark was really depressed.  He loves her.  To his credit, he wasn’t going to stop me from giving her away after what she did to me, but he was miserable.  I finally told him if he can take her to work with him and everywhere else he goes, he can keep her.  He took the passenger seat out of his work truck to accommodate her and he has been good at taking full responsibility for her.

Quilt workshop, and elections

Back before I flew out to Oregon in September, I signed up to participate in a quilt workshop put on by the Trillium Quilt Guild today.  When I thought I was going to be staying in Oregon, I canceled my registration for the workshop.  Then when Sherill died and I returned, I asked if there was still room for me and I was told yes, so I got to spend today being creative.

Butterfly float at Fall Fest won 1st prize!

OK, so it’s not the Rose Festival Parade or the Macy’s Parade, but we know how to have parades in Door County.  My boss at Door County North (where I work in the Visitor Center) wanted to advertise the things the Ellison Bay Beautification Project has been doing in downtown Ellison Bay, particularly the new butterfly mural on one of the buildings.  So she organized a butterfly float for the Fall Fest Parade in Sister Bay this last weekend and someone caught it on video.  My boss, Mickie, is the leading butterfly… Continue reading

Sometimes, a picture isn’t worth a million words…

Because the fall colors have been so glorious, I was carrying my camera with me to work and to church in case I should see something I had to shoot.  Last Sunday, I was driving home from church with my camera on the front seat beside me.  I suddenly had to step on the brake and the camera fell off the seat.  The next picture I tried to take, the lens wouldn’t focus.  🙁  I have seen all sorts of things since that I would have loved to photograph and share with you, but I can’t.  Therefore, I haven’t written.  Continue reading
