Realities and Wishful Thinking

My bedroom is still too darn small! I don’t know why it seems to shrink every year at about this same time.

Even with my puzzle board doing double duty as grooming table and desk, and my spinning chair foldable (as is my wheel), there’s just no place to truly put enough things away.

Why is it I can fit all my hobbies, along with my bedroom, bathroom, dinette and a kitchen in a 27’ long, 8’ wide motorhome (including the cab!) and everything seems to fit fine without feeling crowded … and yet, finding room in my 22’ x 16’ bedroom at home for just my spinning wheel, laptop, knitting paraphernalia and puzzle board seems so cramped after having them absent from the room most of the summer?

Maybe it’s partly knowing I can’t just open the door and set my spinning wheel up outside in the grass this time of year. Brrrr!

Speaking of my RV; I brought “Roada” home from being winterized this morning. What a beautiful if bitter-sweet drive.

Up here in Alaska, autumn is still much in evidence today with brave clusters of bright yellow and dusky gold holding out against a gray sky.

There are certainly more golden leaves on the ground than in the trees in many places, including my driveway, but those still clinging to the trees dance and swirl in the crisp breeze, enjoying every last bit of life before the inevitable final flight to join their companions on the chilly ground.

As I drove home, I found myself wishing I’d planned a couple more short trips before first snow. Sort of impractical, since I’ve completely emptied out the RV, stripped the bed and turned off the refrigerator, but I couldn’t help being wishful. 🍁

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
