The weekend is well begun: email's caught up, I've been for a walk & a scoot ride and the new song is down to the minor tweaking stage. It's a genre I never thought i'd write in, musically, but I don't really create songs. More like I give birth to them. So this 59 year old woman gives birth to a rap tune - what's up with that? Not that any gangsta would rap these lyrics.
30 years ago I was giving birth for real - Today is my younger daughter's birthday. I'm blessed with assignments near her all month so later today I'll go there and we'll celebrate.
Life is good. May there be a road!

Did I mention that last weekend the few boards I had left over were picked up for firewood? I don't know about you, but I wouldn't think of taking wood from an occupied campsite. Probably kids. I should have put it away when I finished leveling.
Anyway, this time the setting up was easy and it's time to kick back and enjoy life... edit the Song In Progress, clean house, grill food, walk the loop, hunt up some small firewood to go with the logs someone left in the site when they left.

Now that work's done for the day, I'm sitting in the doorway sipping SodaStream soda and watching the shoppers - and the medium sized mantid that scooted up the tree a moment ago. Just enjoying the good weather and wishing it were not bad manners to grill in the parking lot.

This was actually the yard for most of the past week, as the store I worked at was only 10 miles from her house. I got to have dinners with her and see my grandson, and even glimpse my son-in-law occasionally - he's working LOTS of hours. I love it when work schedules me to be near kids and friends - I know from experience that I wouldn't see them nearly as often if I had a stationary job somewhere 2-300 miles away.

Gypsy Jane's Rule #1: while coffee is brewing, make the rig drivable - even if you don't plan to drive. You never know when tumbleweed fever will strike.
I'd love to say I always do that! It's a goal, OK?

It's a peaceful spot where I intend to reflect upon a life-changing event in my life 10 years ago today.

When my daughter visited last week she said she couldn't live in such a small space as my motorhome. I told her I don't. I don't live in that small space: mostly I live out here, in the infinite and ever-changing yard.

This morning we broke camp in a steady gentle rain. Cleanup, water chores, dump and drive. Need to be down in NC tonight for work tomorrow. I do love and appreciate my job but it just doesn't compare favorably with a weekend at the lake with friends. And I know I'll not be back here before Labor Day.
Ah but it was fun!
