It's been one of those days....
It was 19 degrees this morning, and of course there has been a lot of rain, so I found all the doors frozen shut when I went to put Lily outside first thing.
I could not
get the cargo door open until the sun had been up a couple of hours...nor could I get the antennae down....did finally get the drivers side door open and went out with Lily that way....me still in pj's and robe, of course.
Bless her little heart, Lily jumped out, took care of business, and leapt back in, landing directly onto the drivers seat. What a girl
The faucet in the kitchen was acting badly, so I took the aerator thingy off, the inner workings which fell apart as I tried to clean it....sand, of course. Found a friendly hardware store that sold me the new thingy, I installed it all by myself, and I now have proper water flow.
Still cleaning winterization and bleach water out of my fresh water system, I was not interested in dumping tanks at 20 degrees, so waited til I got to the new campground. Could not
get the sewer hose attached, struggling with it for several minutes....then, once attached, I found I was not quite close enough to dump.
I remember Doug cursing that attachment process more than once. You have to reach up underneath the Interstate to access the tanks, and some days it is just plain difficult to get the sewer hose attached.
Thinking I could safely just back up a little, hose attached, rather than take it off and struggle to get it back on....I could not, in fact, running the hose over and smashing it nearly flat.
I dumped anyway, holding the end in and rinsing thoroughly when I was done. It wasn't too bad.
On the upside, it was a pretty drive a bit farther south....across the Tennessee River, past the Chickamauga Battlefield....where my Confederate Army Chaplain great-grandfather...ministering to the dead and dying... found, and saved the life of, his Captain, who had been left for dead....and on into the beautiful state of Georgia.
A lovely site on a lake, we are settled in for the rest of the week, and I will have a glass of wine tonight.
