Glenda’s Glimpses On the Road #1
And some of you thought I wouldn’t have anything to do – little did you (or I) know. Let me tell you what I’m doing right now. I am cooking dinner on the side of the road and I decided to bake chicken and potatoes. Well, we have an overactive smoke alarm so as it is baking, I have to take a dish towel every few seconds, or sometimes a couple of minutes, and wave it right under the alarm. Is it smoky in here? No. I think the alarm has ears – it hears the sizzle and thinks there might be smoke. So I have windows, doors open and that seemed to be an invitation for a bee to come in.
Bored? Not on your life. Challenged? Well, maybe. Helps to laugh, or chuckle, or maybe just smile. There have been a few not so funny, novice RV’ers moments. Coming into campgrounds to do hookups late adds to that. It is amazing how many times The Lord provides someone to help us learn the ropes. Hopefully we will get it down soon so our bedtime gets earlier – a must for Jim. You need some down and rest time if you are going to walk 9-10 hours a day.
For the most part, I get my 10,000 steps but it takes some planning. This morning, as I leap frogged Jim (I pass him, he passes me), I parked ahead of him a ways, walk to him, then turn around and walk with him, past the RV, back to the RV, then repeat several times. How exciting can it get!
Pretty soon I’m going to have to take off again because that orange dot (Jim’s wonderful jacket) is getting awfully small. So time to close up, turn off the oven, take the pan out of the oven and put it on a hot pad on the floor and leap that prince of mine. (You know – the outcome of a kissed frog.)
(Actually, there are more exciting things to tell. And by the way, the alarm stopped going off.)
Now, where was that fly swatter? Really!!
