It has been a hectic few days getting settled into our RV site again. The RV itself was easy: park it, hook up the utilities. The rest has been work.
We went to the UPS store to pick up our mail. There were three months worth of bank statements and a bag full of other assorted mail to go through. That took hours. The laundry hamper was overflowing. In the tiny RV washer/dryer, that meant one and a half days of washing and drying. Then I started reconciling financial statements. Sometimes I really wish that I was not a Quicken junkie.
Andy has been doing the hard stuff outside. We have a small shed for the patio furniture and grill. He set up a small table and chairs out back by the mangroves so we would have a place to eat outside. Then he struggled to get the propane tank hooked up. He swept up a lot of debris from our “little slab of paradise”. He had to repair the push-broom to finish the job. I saw him messing with the bicycles too. All that only took three Band-Aids. He keeps Johnson & Johnson in business.
Finally, in the late afternoon, we took a walk to the ocean to sit and relax. I had not realized how beautiful a day it was, inside, with my face in the computer screen, most of the day.
Here’s another picture of the little lighthouse.
I noticed that the Century Plant is in bloom.
Here is a closeup look at the bloom.
There were at least a dozen more buds above the blooms. They are almost as cool as the bloom itself.
Yes, it is good to be back home.
