For the third time in as many weeks, we are once again delayed in going camping in the RV. Tonight’s delay was due to yet another wind and dust storm ahead of an advancing cold front. We knew there was a chance of it tonight, but we were still prepared to leave, just in case the weather forecasters missed it. Unfortunately, they were right once again. Have I mentioned how totally sick I am of dust right now? It. Is. Everywhere! Ugh. So far this year, we’ve had a whopping .17″ of rain. Yes, the drought continues. 😦
We attempted to go camping the previous two weekends, but different issues kept us from going. This consecutive three-month period is the longest period of time that we have not been camping in the RV, and I am having some serious camping withdrawals. Hopefully, the wind will subside by morning and we will be able to hit the road for a couple of nights once again, since the hubby already has tomorrow off from work.
One of the reasons for making a quick weekend trip right now is to take Little Red camping for the first time, along with Girly Girl, who is now a camping pro. It should prove to be pretty interesting to actually have two younger dogs along on our trips now, instead of a younger dog and an older dog, but we are looking forward to it, for sure. Something tells me that there will be few dull moments in the RV now, too. Little Red is full of himself these days, but gosh, is he ever cute! He now weighs almost 40 pounds, so he really doesn’t look much like a puppy, even thought he totally acts like one.
Since hubby and I had nothing to do this evening after dinner because we were planning to already be on the road, we ended up visiting a few stores instead. I bought a small bird feeder for our new tree in the backyard because I really liked it, and since there is usually a breeze here, the little swing will often be a swingin’ in the wind, hopefully with some pretty birds along for the ride.
Our backyard birds literally have it “made in the shade” now, since they now have two feeders and a nice bird bath out there.
I’ve taken so many fun pictures of the backyard birds over the years, and I’ve won two different awards at the fair for pictures I have taken of them at different times. One picture was taken in the winter after a snow storm (Post: My First Blue Ribbons), and another picture was taken in the springtime (Photo: Tiny Bird Winner). I posted about winning those awards a few years ago, as it was a lot of fun for me at the time.
Hopefully we will be away from phones and internet (and dust) in about twelve hours after a good night’s rest. I’m ready.
