Cloudy Day.

Our Location today is Mims, Florida.

After sleeping yet another night with the windows open we felt rested this morning but as we were eating our breakfast things started changing. It wasn’t the way we felt since buying our new mattress we continue to get one good nights sleep after another. What was changing was the weather. After predicting for three days that we’d have rain it finally started but only lasted for an hour.
With the heavy cloud coverage that would remain with us throughout the day we figured we won’t get much exploring done so we set out to do some shopping. Having already eaten lunch we headed out to first Home Depot where I needed to find slightly larger “S” hooks for our Sunshade. The small ones that came with it would become unhooked with heavy gusts of wind. I also was looking to create a tool for opening and closing three of our roof vents without using our stepping stool.
Lucking out on only the “S” hooks we headed across the street to Walmart. We managed to find a few other things that we are hoping will make things more organized in the trailer.
This is a Day?Night quilt on the wall.
This is how this quilt looks at one angle. Pixeled.
From this angle it looks like Lincoln.
Back at the trailer it took me nearly an hour to change out the “S” hooks on the Sunshade, change the support under the drain hose and move things around in the truck. Kathy in the mean time had been online making certain that everything was on the up and up with our bank and credit cards.
Buttered Noodles, Asparagus and Chicken.
Watching the 6:00 pm News they are forecasting that the rain is going to hit us hard tonight and be out over the Atlantic by midnight bringing with it cooler temperatures but clear skies for the next few days. With that kind of forecast there is no telling what we’ll be up to tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

You gave your wife a glue gun for your anniversary.


  1. Depending on the height of your ceilings, I found that those BBQ tongs, the ones with the silicone tips work great for reaching up and opening and closing the vents. They're over 12 inches long. I think dollar stores carry them too.

  2. Hey... better rain than SNOW!

  3. If the vents are really high I have used a dowel rod, it turns the wheel and you can put a pencil eraser on the end so it has better contact with the vent opener. Since Art is 6'6" I yell at him :)

  4. Glad you had a nice, rainy day....

  5. We enjoy rainy days occasionally too, great for a change of pace.
    Our solution to the high ceiling was to get an rv that we could reach the vents. But that is not always and option.
