Chores today....



Our Location: Oakdale Campground, Quincy, Ohio
 
I always seem to be lagging behind these days with my postings. I need to stop that. This is yet again, yesterday's post. 
 
We had a cool overnight but not too bad. We are used to cooler overnights of course, the winter is full of them. I guess our minds think that because we are getting further north the air should be cooler at night but I wonder if the river here is tempering the temperatures? We are in a small hollow between much higher river banks and it almost seems as if it's a little climate of it's own. The nights are warmer than we expect and the days are cooler than when we go out of the campground. 
 
The original. There is a campground on the other side of the river too.

 I have only two photos today, both of the same thing. One is a cropped photo and one is the original. It was taken with my phone. It gives one an idea of how far away the phone can be and still take a decent picture. 

 
It was a busy sort of morning. I defrosted and cleaned both fridge and freezer before breakfast. After that I headed out for a walk and again managed to get in just over 2.5 miles in an hour. I journeyed to the office to pay for one more night, we will be leaving here Friday morning but not crossing until Saturday. Back home I tidied up a number of cabinets and drawers inside and out, wiping them completely down to remove all the desert dust and accumulated debris.  I'm always amazed at how dusty things get. We'll finish our spring cleaning over the couple of weeks we are at Buttercup Ridge in Roseneath, ON. 

Riley also was busy while I was out, she hauled out the vacuum and did a very nice job, she also cleaned up her own room/bathroom. After lunch she decided to go for a walk and managed to put in about 2.5 miles as well. 
 
A bit blurry but not bad for the distance.

 By the time I was finished doing those few housekeeping chores I thought I'd sit outside, we had the big door open and it seemed coolish but nice. Of course the sun went behind the clouds and the wind turned even colder in the shadows of the clouds. I moved back inside within 15 minutes even though I had my hoodie on. I don't think gloves would be appropriate for reading outside. 


From that point on we had a quiet relaxing day doing a whole lot of nothing else. So a nice day, a productive day and a good day to be busy outside but not sitting. Still it's April in the northern USA, so not a complaint just a statement. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a fantastic day. 

Until next time... take care, be safe, 

Deb

  1. Didn't you just want to climb in the boat with that guy and go fishing?! It really is lovely where you are! It would be nice if it was warmer, but you did get some things done inside. Living here in the sandy desert it's amazing how much sand is tracked in on a daily basis and the dust!! Keep enjoying! :)

    1. Nope, not a fisher person but I could ask for you next time. Haha.
      Always something to clean if we are ambitious enough to clean it, isn't there?

  2. It always feel good after doing such thorough cleaning. I think the dust just drifts through our window screens without us even knowing it. Enjoy your day today.

    1. It's the same in the summer location as well. The dust just seems to settle on things that only show when company comes along. Haha.

  3. The weather is nice but cooler there, much colder here in Ontario today even had some snow fluffies. I have some gloves with the fingers tips exposed works for me reading out side when a little chilly. Enjoy Your last day there and travel safely.

    1. Those are called Beggars Gloves and I have a pair around here somewhere but if I have to wear gloves to read outside then it's too cold and I'll pay later. Easier to just move it inside. It'll warm up soon, we hooked the warmer to the bumper and we had a tail wind so it couldn't escape. Haha

    2. LOL I wear them some mostly when the arthritis in my knuckles flairs up, sometimes not even that cold.

    3. I find a pair of light gloves works well even in the early mornings during my walk. Keeps the wind and cold from getting at my hands.

    1. The rain didn't amount to much and the wind wasn't too bad, or at least we didn't find it too bad. Safe travels homeward.

      Take care, be safe,

    1. I'm starting to have to play catch up as well for some reason. Not sure why but oh well, it happens. It is a good place to rest and recharge, quiet is the word of the day. Not many folks around when we are there as the park wasn't open to 'seasonal' folks until the 8th, which was a weekday. They could come clean up and set up on the weekend but couldn't stay. Being transient we were okay.
      Had a wonderful visit with George & Suzie. Very nice folks!!

      Take care, be safe,
