Just Chillin’

Ask me what I accomplished yesterday. Go ahead, ask me. Okay, I’ll tell you. Not a darned thing! Smile All I did was take up space and breathe valuable air that productive human beings could have used.

I goofed around on the computer for a while, had lunch, took the trash to the campground dumpster and went to the activity center to drop off a sample bundle of Gypsy Journals. Then I goofed around some more and decided I needed a nap after all of that strenuous nothing.

I was tempted to crawl into this hammock a few sites down from us, but people tend to get upset when they come back from town and find strangers asleep on their stuff.


Hammocks are cool. I’ve had several over the years and there’s no better place for a nap. I keep looking for one that would work for us, be small enough to store in a basement bay and still have its own frame, since a lot of RV parks frown on you tying things to their trees. A fellow I know has this portable hammock and says he carries it in his Dutch Star. Hmm.

While I was being a waste of skin, Miss Terry was busy getting started on her next weaving project, another shawl. It’s a new and more complicated pattern, because she’s always looking for a new challenge.

She’s going to have another challenge to master soon, learning to fly the Revolution EXP Quad Line Stunt Kite I won for her in a drawing on the KiteLife website. This is the second Rev I’ve won in their drawings, as well as a set of kite stakes. I wish I was that lucky with lottery tickets.

Today I have to find a shop to look at the front end of our Explorer. It’s time to buy new tires, but we also need an alignment. At least I hope that’s all we need. The inside of the front tires have worn badly and I want to get whatever needs corrected fixed before I invest in new tires.

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to start a new Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of The Journals of Jacob and Hyde by my friend Randall Morris. To enter, all you have to do is click on the Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening.

  1. How do you know you don’t have any luck with lottery tickets?

    You never buy any.

  2. Nick almost bought A ticket, but, decided to enter the Chinese Buffet next door!!!

  3. You really captured the complexity of Terry’s weaving in that photo.

  4. The more I learn about weaving, the more I know how complex it is. This isn’t your grandma’s potholder!!!

  5. As Dick always says, we have to buy a lottery ticket to have a chance to win. Darn!

    Love Terry’s colors for this shawl and envy her talents!

  6. Sounds like you didn’t finish with “nothing” yesterday. Better do some more today.
