I spent the night there, drove the rest of the way supplied with Pat's amazingly yummy tiny tomatoes for road food, and got to camp around lunchtime.

A mountain of mail to go through. Trips to the mechanic . Visits with friends. Summer clothes to take out of the rig, fall clothes & warm fuzzies & Mr. Heater to put in. Preparations to make for the Eastern Rendezvous.
I worked near home last week and will again this week, commuting by car. This is good: I can prepare for the Rendezvous without missing work, and take the time AFTER, to recover. The jet lag from fast-forwarding 200 years is - well, it's hard to go directly back to work.
Saturday: crisp but still pleasantly warm. The first hint of fall, the seeds of October. Riding weather.

I actually had to wait an hour for enough light to take this picture. We had a nice dinner & campfire last night. After my folks left for their climate controlled, wheelless homes, I put everything away, washed dishes, watched the fire dwindle in the peace of the night.
Saturday dawns clear and bright. The peace of the woods meets the anticipation of a wond'rous array of things to do. Music to play, Spanish to learn, trails to hike both literally and otherwise, Later today, friends & family to visit, new people to meet, lampwork beads to learn to make. Cats to cuddle.
Life is good!

My new leveling blocks are neatly stowed in the compartment and on the scooter rack. I need to find a temporary spot for the old broken ones which will become firewood at my next campground.
My stove area got a good scrubbing, right down to the spice jar lids and the burners that never get used: the ones in back.
That slightly battered Revere Ware whistling teapot was the very first piece of kitchen stuff I bought for my very first motor home back in 1995. It has served me well despite numerous unplanned trips to the floor.
Yes, two of the stove knobs are missing. They were carefully put away one day after I turned a back burner on by mistake and cooked the nonslip mat on the stove cover and whatever was sitting on it. I don't ever want to do that again, and with the knobs hidden away no one ever will.
OK Gypsy, enough blogging, go back to cleaning.
