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.

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.

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,
