Draped in Black

Well …. it seems I misjudged the appropriate date for winterizing “Roada”. Because of my miscalculation, or MAYBE just because winter is setting in way earlier than I was prepared to accept, the poor girl is spending a couple of weeks wearing this disgraceful black plastic gown.

Still, better safe than stylish, right? Nighttime temps are expected to be in the mid-20s for the next two weeks, and I really don’t want frozen pipes.

So, until my appointment for winterizing and some regular fall maintenance on October 6th, the heat stays on inside the RV, which, combines with the plastic skirt and a small electric heater under her butt, should keep her safe and sound.

In the meantime; I continue procrastinating. I’m only partway through the unhappy process of unpacking and cleaning the RV.

As I sort through what goes into the pantry and closet in the house, and what goes straight into RV-only crates in the basement, I sigh.

The road, now carpeted with gold, continues to beckon.

I guess it’s time to set my spinning wheel up in the house. Who knows where it will lead me this winter.

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.

One thought on “Draped in Black

  1. Your fall is beautiful, but I agree – summer was waaaay too short. But, there is always day-dreaming and planning for next year, right? ♥
