Mobile living…

Since I redid the curtains in my ‘Florida room,’ as it’s known here, there is a sliver of window showing above the sheers I have hung up high on the windows.  I love how it looks from the inside, and if I happen to look up and notice the sky in the late afternoon I might see that there is a very pretty sunset going on out there and I’m missing it.  So even though there isn’t a great setting to compose a picture I won’t be able to stand it and I’ll have to go out with the camera anyhow.  I took these pictures a few days ago when the pretty sky out there got me out the door, twice.  The same thing has been known to happen out the front windows in the morning too.  Sometimes I might be sitting here on the computer and thinking there is a torrential rain storm going on, but it’s just the wind rustling the palm fronds.  It sounds just like rain.  When a woodpecker decides to peck on the house it’s pretty darned funny too.  But life is simpler now, and I’m kind of proud of myself for not missing the luxuries, like my dishwasher and garbage disposal.  Of course I haven’t attempted anything fancy cooking-wise, so far at least.  Going to the laundromat isn’t bad either.  And my sleep and wake hours have become more normal.  Early on in living here I was up so early that it was still pitch dark outside when I was ready to take a shower.  It was little horrifying to turn, my hair full of shampoo, and open my eyes, and realize that I was showering in front of a window when it was dark out and the light was blazing inside.  Yikes!  I was thankful I’m not a couple of inches taller.  So living here has probably made me even more ready than ever to take on this ‘mobile’ living thing and really put it into action.  As in heading north and picking up the RV/camper and hitting the road.  I think I’ll be ready.  I’m excited.  I’m the proverbial Little Engine.  I think I can, I think I can…
