7:21 am - PST - Monday - 50º F, humidity 96% (yup, it's raining), wind 4 mph out of the west. Heavy cloud cover from horizon to horizon.....we woke up this morning to rain about 6 am.
On Sunday we woke up to wind.....again.....sigh.....we did have plans to take a tandem ride to explore a few more of the steel sculptures we didn't see the first time around, but I don't like riding in the wind, and TLE really does not like riding in the wind.....I mean really! Sooooo, as is sometimes the case whether you live in a sticks and bricks home, or in a 220 square foot motorcoach as we do, we adjusted our expectations, and plans.....we moved on to 'Plan B' and stayed home. There are always small and large projects to occupy one's time, there are always books to be read, and there are most certainly always naps to be taken, eh?
Personally a really good day for me here on Rockhouse Road is sitting inside, or outside enjoying the view.....as the sun moves across the sky the lighting on the local mountains changes often creating, in effect, a brand new view. I get this sense of well being, and serenity and find myself sitting there for 10-15 minutes at a time just staring at the big view with not a care in the world filtering into my consciousness......it is wonderful!
Around 12:30 pm I turned on the inverter and the TV in the trailer to watch the end of the Honda Classic Golf Tournament......just because I could......there was plenty of sun being absorbed by our solar panels and being converted to 12 volt engergy, and the batteries had been at 100% since 11 am......as I watched/listened to the tournament I fixed one of my solar lights by replacing the 'AA' lithium battery with a spare, I organized my sockets for my socket wrenches, swept out the trailer......you know, just kind of busy stuff.....stuff that makes me happy when it is done.
The only thing on TV Sunday evening was the annual Academy Awards, which we have not watched in 20 years mostly because too many of the Hollywood elites believe we care about their political and moral opinions, which we do not. No one appreciates a good acting job more than I, and these folks get paid a lot of money for their talent, with which I have no problem......more power to them. What I do have a problem with is their inflated sense of worth to the world.......they are just actors pretending to be someone they are not.....their opinions have no more value than mine, and in some cases less, because in many cases due to the insular world in which they live, they really don't know what they are talking about. At any rate, it is no longer a show done with style and class, and has not been such for some time now......it actually tends to celebrate the lowest common denominators in life. To me movies should elevate us, not debase us.
I read until almost 11 pm before closing a chapter on another day lived well on Rockhouse Road.
Thanks for stopping by!

Nothing quite like the views out there on Rockhouse road, and puttering around just doing stuff is rewarding as well.ReplyDelete
Inside days are good, you have permission to be lazy in front of the tv or with a good book.ReplyDelete
