Yep, that sums up our week. This last week we have been busy with a lot of painting. In previous weeks, Rick has been pressure washing and sanding 3 picnic tables and 2 benches. Well this week we primed and painted them red. Why red? Well they pop and they match the bath house door we replaced and painted a couple weeks ago, that they sit near. You can see before they had a brown, gritty paint on them that was chipping and the benches were unpainted. Now, several coats later, they are a beautiful red! By the way, in the before picture, that is the tractor and mower used to mow the airfield.
We also painted a fuel trailer white and the trim black. It really looks sharp now!
We then did a little interior decorating in the RV. Since our house is a rolling earthquake and is not suitable for framed pictures, I found WallPops, which are stick on vinyl frames that you can put your pictures in. They are really cool, in that you can move them and reuse them and you can switch out and update pictures. I also ordered a name vinyl that I think really completes the grouping.
Since it is fall, which you wouldn’t know it here with temps in the high 80’s and 90’s, we got out our fall decorations. Being that space and weight is at a premium, all our fall decorations fit in a small box. Now Christmas decorations are another story. They are in two bins, but that may whittle down after we have our first Christmas in the RV. We will see. It can’t get bigger because we follow the 1 in, 1 out rule to make sure we get rid of something to bring something new in, be it clothes, dishes, decorations, etc. We are currently getting a bunch of things together to drop off at Goodwill before we leave Southern Indiana.
It has been a bit slow in the plane sighting category but a night landing by a Blackhawk made up for it. As you can see in the picture, it was pretty dark out and they landed just a short way from the camper and we sat outside while they were here. Wish we could have seen what they were doing out there because they were there for about 20 minutes.
This week was also busy with a lot of baseball watching. Our beloved Brewers are in the post season chase to the World Series and playing some pretty stellar baseball. The issue we have, is that the games are on cable channels and we get spotty cell reception to even get a hot spot going to stream anything, so we have been going into town to watch at local sports bars. We have really taken a liking to Off Broadway, a sports bar in quaint, downtown Madison. They have really good food and a wide range of beers for Rick. With many TV’s, they have been more than accommodating to change channels for us to enjoy the games.
We have started planning our travels for when we leave here at the end of the month. The hitch itch is getting stronger and we are excited to see where our travels take us next.
