Yes, it’s Friday.
In a few minutes, I’ll send a manuscript to my editor. That always makes me feel good.One down and two to go.
And in case you didn’t notice, I’m playing with the way this site looks. I’m trying to make it better. The problem is I’m so techno-challenged! So you’ll see a few minor changes over the next week or so.
It’s supposed to be warm here today, as in walk outside without a coat or sweater! Yippee! And this weekend is supposed to be beautiful. Open the windows and let the sun shine in! I’ve been waiting for this weather. There’s something wonderful about airing out the house after a long winter.
I’m a happy camper. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll go look at real campers on Saturday. I keep saying I want a teardrop camper. That little one they show being pulled by a Mini Cooper. I’ve been in one and fell in love. They claim I can grab it by that stem thingy that hooks to the back of the car and pull it myself. Hmm, did you know a person can push a railroad car? The problem is getting it started, after that they say you can push with one hand. Yeah, right! I get worn out from steering grocery carts with wiggly wheels.
Anyway, the teardrop I saw is adorable. It’s like a child’s cottage. There’s not a lot of space but it does have a tiny stove, a tiny refrigerator, and a tiny sink. There’s a bathroom, which is hysterical. You practically have to sit on the potty then tuck your knees under the sink and the shower head is directly overhead. It adds meaning to the morning 3-S rituals known by every GI in America. I’ll be polite and say two of the S’s, shower and shave. I guess you don’t take your towel in with you. 🙂 And you don’t want to jump out of bed too quickly or your hit your head That’s the main slope.
They are very inexpensive. And maybe they really are too small. But I want to be able to sneak away once in awhile. I figure I must eat no matter where I am and my only real cost would be gas. I want more than a tent and a whole lot less than some big thing that I have to drag around with me.
I have friends with big RV’s. The big ones are work! When they set up, they have tons to do, and they can’t go on certain roads with them. I want little. I really don’t want to pull into big RV camps. I want to find quiet places. The whole idea is to get away and be able to write. Sometimes it almost seems scary to do something that crazy all by myself, but I’d really like to try it.
Besides I have friends scattered around the USA and I’d like to see them. Most have already told me to come, that they’ve got plenty of space for me to park. Wouldn’t that be fun? Have coffee cup, toothbrush, computer, camera, cellphone, will travel!
I intend to enjoy today. Maybe I’ll poke my nose in the garden. I have such a mess out there. A little here and a little there, and I’ll feel as though I’ve accomplished something.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and chance to actually enjoy it.
