A break in routine

It’s been very quiet around our house for the last few weeks – not much excitement – just getting through the winter doldrums.  Now that spring is officially here, and maybe, just maybe the weather is going to get a little warmer, the days a little longer, the rain a little less, it seems it’s time to move toward summer.

Yesterday, the sun was shining, the skies blue (mostly), and the weather just warm enough – so Grizz and I decided to get out and explore some of the areas in the mountains to the north-west of our little town.  So off we went – and soon we found ourselves on some mountain roads we’d never been on before.  It seemed like a long time since we’d been out for a drive, just for the sake of driving, and this was a very pleasant break in the routine.

What struck us most was the number of houses in what felt like a remote area.  But apparently being remote isn’t enough for most of these folks, because their driveways were almost all closed off with big gates like this:

We could only speculate, but possibly being remote isn’t enough to keep explorers from wandering onto their properties.

Today we met friends at the Humdinger RV Show

This is a good time to pick up a few RV necessities for a good price, and look at what’s new if you’re in the market (as some of our friends are).  We even won a little door-prize, for the first time ever (a bottle of awning cleaner).

Ramping up for summer includes making plans for camping trips – and some of those are planned.  Before we know it, camping season will be here – and all of God’s wonderful world is just out there for us to visit and enjoy.  Some plans are made definitively, some just very tentative – but I’m looking forward to sharing with you all as we get out there.

I’m so happy to be into spring – and so looking forward to more outdoors and travel.

Happy first day of spring!   Oh, no, I guess that also means spring cleaning!                Blessings, Peg
