Clicking pics is good for hand and eye coordination.
Purple flower starting to show some ware from a hot summer, and nibbling bugs.
It's starting to feel more like Fall around here, which means it still has high temperatures in the 90s some days, but that temperature doesn't last as long as before. So the mornings are getting a little more chilly and staying that way a little longer. The afternoons are Cooling-off quicker, so all in all, the days are getting more comfortable. That means a lot to me because I'm not plugged in and living without air conditioning.
Now that I've got a mini-vacation coming up within the next two weeks. That sets the wheels in motion for me to get busy and start getting ready for what lies ahead. Of course, as you full-timers already know, the first step to getting prepared for any kind of travel is sitting in your easy chair with a cup of coffee and making plans. But since I don't make plans, I get ready by sitting in my easy chair and relaxing while drinking a cup of coffee to keep me awake.
This planning stage can go on for quite some time, depending on your travel plans' length and difficulty. And there again, since I don't make any plans, I use that week to rest up and get mentally and physically prepared for all the travel challenges ahead.
The next step is to make sure your RV is ready for safe and trouble-free travel. This is very important because the enjoyment of your entire trip is based on the proper functioning of your RV, so time spent checking out the RV will be paid back with a trip that goes safely, smoothly, and with no unwanted surprises.
To make sure the job is done correctly, it's best to develop a routine of RV preparation; that way, nothing important is left out. The method that I've used over the years is to sit in my easy chair, lean back, close my eyes, and meditate about all the things that could go wrong with the Arctic Fox while I'm on the road. And then I mentally tie all those problems up into a bundle and throw them away, so they're gone forever, and I never worry about them again. This may not work for everyone, so if you're afflicted with ambition, energy, or enthusiasm, you may have to develop your own routine.
Now that you and your RV are adequately prepared for the journey ahead, there's nothing left to do but throw a sixpack of beer in the refrigerator, climb aboard, and put the pedal to the metal. Knowing you're ready to face every challenge, both large and small, that being on vacation can throw at you.
I paid this professional Bee model a lot of money to hover over the flower like this. I spare no expense to take these pictures.
These do kind of look like snowballs, but we'll be seeing the real ones soon enough.
