E is for Enjoying Everyday

Honey, I think I hear the Welcome Wagon people greeting us!
It's good to be at Winterset RV Park.  Everybody has been so friendly and helpful, I just know we'll enjoy our month here.

We always remember the big things that happen in our life, but it's the little everyday things that really make an impact.  Sometimes we forget to appreciate the awe in a sunset but can remember when the other half forgets to put the cap on the toothpaste...again.

Living in a canned ham really brings both the simples pleasures and irritations to the forefront. It's like having a magnifying glass on them.  I've never really paid a lot of attention to my everyday routine, but living very simply has brought it to light.
Living closely together is like performing an elaborate dance and requires each  partner to know his and her steps.  The day goes something like this:

Rise from bed and rub head from whacking it on the ceiling. Use the shoilet, make up the beds and transfer items from bench to bed.  Fix She Devil her breakfast and give the first shot of insulin. Then he gets up and follows the same routine and we have breakfast and do dishes.

Breakfast is usually a bowl of dry cheerios for me and a can of coke zero. Not on the cereal, just as a beverage.  He prefers milk on his cereal, as does She Devil.

Activities during the day are dependent on the weather and involve either hiking, photographing, reading Kindle or working on computer stuff.  If we have internet connections I check in on Facebook to play scrabble with friends, see what’s happening and post my blog.  One of my goals on this trip is to clean up the computer, going through it and deleting crap, organizing folders and that kind of boring stuff, but it hasn't happened yet.

I've been working my way through a couple of books on Photoshop Elements to improve those skills and hope to post some funny phots that I want to create.

Okay, this has nothing to do with today's topic, but she's so excited she wants it in right NOW. She Devil has a new admirer named Bill from Waupun and she actually blushed when reading the comments to her blog a couple of days ago.  He's a big guy, weighing in at 22 pounds and she's VERY intrigued and hopes he writes to her again and perhaps send a photo. Oh, she just explained that it does fit the E theme as he might be her "everything".

The day progresses with lunch (or not), more lazy activities and then supper followed by some cribbage.  So far I'm still up one game over Left Brain.  Now that we're in Palmetto we're scouting out all the wonderful hiking trails and photo ops to be had and food to indulge in.

Well, I'm going to sign off now and go let the park office know we're here.  They were closed on Sunday and the sign said to just find your lot and set up and come in the next day.  This is when we realized it's actually Jan 31 today and we're not scheduled to be here until February 1st.  Oops.  Not to mention we were here last night on Jan 30th.  It's so hard to keep track of the calendar when you're enjoying all the everyday things.


  1. Sounds like a lovely day to me. Good thing the Ham isn't big enough for good hiding places... You might have had a stow-away. :)


  2. Dear She Devil,
    When I read your name I see SHE DEVINE--
    I have to ask you: will you be mine?
    Tuna Breath Bill =^,.^=
