Today I have absolutely nothing to report! No exciting news about the RV world to tell you about, no updates on what we’ve been doing, and no visits with RVing friends to share with you. I guess I’m just boor-ring!

Yesterday started with a call from Dave and Jean Damon, who sell 303 Protectant at RV rallies, and are regular vendors at our events. They are up in Ohio, where they just finished getting some major repair work done following a traffic accident a few weeks ago. They’re looking forward to getting out of the cold Midwest and down here to the Florida sunshine in the next week or so.

I had a bad case of the lazies. I started off slow and tapered off from there. I’ve been spending a lot of time at the keyboard, working on the sequel to Big Lake, and not much else. But yesterday I just couldn’t seem to get motivated. I actually got up, got dressed, checked my e-mail, and then laid down on the couch and took a nap! How sad is that?

Miss Terry spent much of the day preparing a delicious meal of pork carnitas, and was in her element. I stayed out of her way as much as possible, spending an hour or so sitting outside, enjoying the warm weather and reading a book on my Kindle. There were a lot of folks out and about, and I said hello and exchanged pleasantries with those who passed by. This Thousand Trails sure has a lot of friendly people!

Eventually I went back inside and sat down at my desk, and actually managed to knock out another 1800 words on the book. I’ve been averaging 2000 to 2500 words a day, so I guess that wasn’t too bad, given my late start. 

After dinner, my buddy Greg White called to report that they were Wally-docking in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana overnight, and had an easy trip into Houston today, where they will settle in for a few months of family time.

And that was about it for the day. We watched a couple of movies on TV, and Miss Terry was busy with her crocheting, while I poked around on the internet a little bit, then wrote a post for my self-publishing blog titled False Marketing.

Not every day in a fulltime RVer’s life is about traveling and exploring new places, or attending rallies. Sometimes we just have quiet, do nothing days, and have nothing to report.

Thought For The Day – A positive attitude may not solve all of your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

  1. Sounds like a great day to me! Sure glad to hear you’re working on the sequel – now that’s important stuff. I’m anxious to read it.

  2. Sounds like one of our normal days! There have been a few days where the most exciting thing we do all day is read one of your “Bad Nick” articles. lol

  3. I am in shock, Nick taking a day off and just goofing around, that is wonderful now if Terry would join you that would be great, So happy to hear that you are working on the next book, we are excited about it coming out soon we hope. Enjoy the good weather. We are still to warm for this time of year we are still in the 80’s with high winds.

  4. I LOVE your thought of the day… is soooo true!

    And, even you deserve a day off …..

  5. Oh, yes – Terry deserves several days off!

  6. Enjoy those days. . .that next rally will be here before you can blink!


  7. Goofing off is good. I’ve had trouble getting going on my blog lately also. Must be something in the air.

  8. The Nov-Dec issue of the Gypsy Journal was the best yet. What I like best about the GJ is the snippits of history that comes along with unusual places. I can only imagine the time and research it takes to gather that information. The picture “what dreams did this old house hold?” on page 18 stirs the imagination. And last but not least – the article about Larry and myself on page 10 was much appriciated. Note to Terry: I look back on our session on crocheting rugs out of plastic grocery bags with great pleasure. I have completed enough rugs to cover the hallway of our motorhome from end to end so the time watching TV isn’t entirely wasted.
