A Quiet Day

The last month has been so chaotic that it seems like we were always on the go, pushing deadlines, or dealing with one problem after another. Yesterday, we had a much needed quiet day, and it did wonders to rejuvenate both of us!

We slept in, then just stayed warm and cozy snuggling under the covers, talking, and putting off starting our day as long as possible. The temperature had dropped down to 29 degrees overnight, and the day’s high was only in the mid-50s, with a gloomy gray sky. Except for a quick walk down to the dumpster, we never even stepped outside all day long.

The day passed peacefully, watching TV, browsing the internet, and I even laid down on the couch for a quick nap late in the afternoon. In short, it was a lazy day! We all need those now and then.

I mentioned the many deer that live here at the Thousand Trails preserve in yesterday’s blog. They provided quite a bit of entertainment as we watched them cavorting around our campsite. Some of the yearlings chased each other around like so many children playing tag, and it was obvious that they were having a lot of fun. We had fun just enjoying the show!

After close to a month without television, I sure am enjoying having the new automatic Winegard rooftop dish. We watched several holiday movies on the Hallmark channel, and caught up on the news broadcasts, to see who we’re at war with this week.

I spent an hour or two catching up on paperwork, and logging in several new reservations for our Arizona Gypsy Gathering rally. For some reason, people who use Firefox as their internet web browser are having problems registering online, but if they use Internet Explorer or another browser, everything works fine.

We have almost 80 registrations already, and we already have over 20 vendors registered who will be selling everything from tire pressure monitoring systems to jewelry, RV cleaning supplies, Fantastic vents, computer accessories, RV insurance, windshield repair, and more. I think this is going to be a big one, folks!

Miss Terry made us a delicious dinner, and we spent the evening doing what we had done all day long, which was not much of anything. Some people would call a day like this wasted, and back in my old workaholic days, I’d have felt guilty for not doing anything productive all day long. But it sure was nice not to have to do anything we didn’t want to do. I just may do the same thing again today!

  1. Your day was productive – it was a mental health and regenerative day for the two of you!

  2. I used to tell Dave I hadn’t done a thing all day then I’d say, “Except…” and mention one thing then another until I discovered I’d actually done quite a bit. Those little things add up if you pay attention. Like registering Gypsy Gathering attendees, tallying vendors, taking out the garbage, cooking and cleaning up a meal, taking time to talk to one another and enjoy the sights around you, etc.

  3. It’s good to have time to keep in touch with each other. Always, you are each other’s best friend!

  4. Sometimes you just need a relaxing day or 2 or 3 or 4… LOL I missed your post on the TT Park and was wondering where exactly it is and is it nice? We are going to be hitting a few of the ones in Texas in January… Hopefully… I may be looking at minor surgery on my knee in a week or so. You know with us full timers stuff happens that changes our plans… Have a wonderful day and travel safely…

    Happy New Year Nick & Miss Terry

  5. Rescue Tape.


    I sure hope one of your vendors sells rescue tape. So far I have not found it at any RV store and the S&H costs to by on the internet are ridiculous.

    We are really looking forward to your rally and making new friends.
