What a great sleep I had, even with my late afternoon nap yesterday, by 11 pm last night I was out and didn't hear a thing all night until 6:30 am. If mother nature hadn't called I may have slept longer. As it is I'm still sitting in bed reading blogs and starting this post, the clock reads 8:07 am. I can see the sun shining outside my window and so I know it's time to roll out and start the day.
We have no plans for today but I'm sure something will come along, if not, we have some great reading available. Maybe another lazy day might be in order. After all lunch is already made so I can spend some time doing nothing today, except for a couple of indoor projects I have in mind. Little things that will take less than an hour but hopefully make our lives a bit easier.
I hear Miss Riley moving about, I think it's time to get out of bed and start opening shades, putting on water, etc. You get the idea.
Up and at 'em, we had our hot cuppa and chatted about plans or in our case, the lack of plans. Neither of us felt much like doing anything and with the cool breeze and temperatures we didn't plan on venturing too far from home.
We tidied up a bit and before long I had pulled out a few things to work on a couple of little projects indoors. Didn't take long for me to get them accomplished. Nothing fancy just a few little things to make boon docking a bit easier for us. We're always scrambling to plug stuff in and will this fit with that, does this cord reach, etc. Today I solved that little problem. Not as neat and pretty as some but it works for us, that's what counts.
I installed a short 10' extension cord that runs from the table to the end of the inverter cord behind the chairs. The plugs at the table will allow both the tv and the crock pot to be plugged on without having to worry about connections reaching. Behind our chairs I installed a power bar with six outlets for us to plug our electronics into without any hassle. I had a small 3 plug receptacle at the end of the inverter cord but we couldn't always use all of the outlets because not all plugs for electronics are created equal. Some have to be turned sideways and can only be plugged in covering up another plug, others are too thick to plug another in beside, etc. So with 6 spots we will have no issues plugging in our few items at the same time. Since we use very little power we plug in 3 or 4 at a time. Always during the afternoon when we're usually draining off extra charge anyway. They may not be perfect but at least there is no duct tape visible.
After that little job we decided we'd take a walk to settle into the new hiking boots. We both laced 'em up and headed out to walk the roadway and just get used to them a bit before we actually use for anything like a hike.
We chatted with Vicky (from Oregon), and her friendly black lab Chase. Her hubby was off riding his bike somewhere. They are here to take in spring training, I never asked which team she follows, it didn't cross my mind at the time. I'm not a baseball fan.
Back on the road we walked almost to Courthouse Road before heading out a bit off the path just to check out the boots. They fit nice but I think I'll need some heavier socks to make mine feel as snug as I'd like them to. However they can't be wool socks so I'll be looking out for some thicker cotton socks. Riley really liked her boots and is very pleased with her purchase. We were back home about a half hour later. Pleased with the boots.
I sat outside for a bit looking at this mountain I want to climb but common sense prevailed and I'll leave it for another time. I spent the rest of the day reading my book. I finished two J.A. Jance books earlier this week and am reading my 3rd in the series. I like her style, and always enjoy her books, or at least I haven't found one I didn't like yet.
Riley heated up a couple of bowls of sausage soup, it was wonderful. Hit the spot, tasted pretty good and we have enough for another day or maybe two. How lucky is that? I like those kinds of lunches, just heat 'em up.
I did manage to stumble outside and catch some sunset pictures which I've decided will be the only ones on the post tonight. I managed to make it back home just about dark and slipped inside falling into my chair once again. Patsy was right, they are addictive. I think tomorrow I'll turn mine over and put in the proper bolts to make it non swivel. Or maybe I won't, we'll have to see what tomorrow brings.
So there you have it, our quiet day where a few minor things were accomplished but nothing much. It's good to sit and rest for a bit, and who knows maybe tomorrow we'll actually get out and about. Time will tell, won't it?
Thanks for stopping by, hope you had an excellent day!! Feel free to comment.
Until next time.... take care, be safe,
