Putting On Miles

I should have worn a pedometer today—as Michael said when he sat down with a sigh of relief, “I think we put on some miles today.”  Right after our walk this morning we started loading.  The longarm is safely in its box and in the trailer.  Sewing machines, fabric, tools, etc.—all in the motorhome. 

Tomorrow I will load clothes, etc.  We should be close to finished by tomorrow evening with the exception of last minute things.  I over ruled Michael on the Christmas tree—even though it is a very small tree, after the holidays the tree has to have a home.  I suggested buying either a live tree and then planting the tree or buying another small lighted tree then donating it to the RV park clubhouse or something.  So, that is what we are doing. 

Chicken fajitas for lunch—very good.  I season a chicken breast really well and grill it.  In my cast iron skillet I sauté onions and peppers until they are slightly charred.  Homemade salsa and we have a great, good for us lunch.

It has been hard to pack knowing we are going to be gone longer than usual this time—I keep a lot of food on hand—we live in the boonies—some of it will keep until we return, some of it I had to take with us.  I’ve been successful this year in paring down the contents of the freezers and refrigerators—our motorhome refrigerator won’t be as stuffed as usual!  

It is really hard to believe Thanksgiving is this week—where did this year go??? 


It was almost 60 degrees today—a lot of that snow melted! 


  1. Glad you won!! You need a tree. Good luck getting everything in. We have unusually warm temps here in Wis. also.

  2. Sounds like you are just about ready to go on this new adventure. Safe travels!

  3. Gosh I remember when our house sold, I had to use up food from TWO freezers and all the cabinets, and then squish it all into the motorhome. I dropped off some can goods and dried noodles and mixes at the local NEWCAP for food pantry distribution.

    Anxious to see the next part of your journey unfold!

  4. Going for that long would sure present some difficult choices for us that's for sure. Glad to hear you seem to have it under control.
