This and That and Immortal Words

We have finally come home to our motor home. Actually, we did that on Monday and then spent most of yesterday trying to put things away and get ourselves comfortable. We are still at that today. I replaced the usual couch cover with a plain white fitted sheet and felt the temperature drop instantly. A couple of colorful pillows at either end dress it up.

The problem was that the really hot weather did not hit until just after Jim got sick. So we had not striped our living area down to the bare essentials before moving into Sage and Chica's air conditioned house. Normally we are traveling or working during the summer and the RV doesn't have such a "lived in" look. There was so much clutter we couldn't find places to put stuff away. I even took four bags of whatever-possessed-me-to-buy-thats to the thrift shop.

Hint: If you are going to get yourself stranded in Southern Arizona for the summer, DO NOT pile afghans and extra fabric on the couch or chairs! Nor should you hang all of the crocheted scarves you are making for fall and winter sales, from all the cupboard handles!

So, as you may have noticed, I missed yesterday's blog. I am not all broken up over it. No matter how often these crazy people in Arizona tell me , "but it's a dry heat". It's still a HOT HEAT!!

I missed a blog? Guess what? In the immortal words of Rhett Butler, "Frankly, my dear I don't give a $%#@!"

Today, we both goofed off and I spent a little while by the fan catching up with other people's blogs. I also went to check out my new followers and was pleased to discover a few surprises.

Aimee Lee is a young mom who knows the alure of yard sales and thrift shops. But she doesn't stop with buying neat stuff . She uses it to make even neater stuff!

At first sight, Bianca Jolicour's blog seemed an odd mix with mine until I remembered when I dumped on all of you last week. I suspect she picked up on my depressed mood and linked from that. But here's the thing: Bianca is a student and I suspect one of Clinical Psychology. She has some very important things to say in her blog and if any of you have teenagers or teen aged grand kids, I urge you to read her blog now.

And so that's how I spent my day. Oh where's my blog?

Well, folks, as Scarlet O'Hara would say;
" I'll think about that tomorrow.

Tomorrow is another day."

See ya down the road,

I think it will be a gradual process this time. I'm working on my area. Or will tomorrow.

Word for the day...osech: A colloquial expression used to denote strong feelings on an issue. eg. "Osech a big lie deserves a kick in the shins!"

I'll bet it feels good to be back home, barring all the "winter" stuff. Tomorrow is definitely another day, Scarlett aka Yarntangler.

BTE, Geezerbuy, here's my interesting word for the day that I had to use for the verification tonight: "punketat." Bet you can find a great definition for it.

P.S. My computer can't spell.

It's good to hear you're back home to your RV, though you can have southern Arizona's heat. Although I have never been there, my husband says it can get unbelievably hot, but not humid as here in the midwest. Even so, I would love to see it sometime. Hope your husband is feeling better. "That which is missed, is not forgotten."

I'm sure it feels great to be home! Good opportunity to go through "stuff" and offload some. :-) Now that's a never ending process.
