Ambassador PLQ, Old Diary

A Day Above Days

Every once in a while a day comes along that’s just perfect.  Friday was one of those days!2014101706262825

From the whispy clouds at sunrise all the way through the day it was just perfect.  We got a whole lot done — as well as having time to get a whole lot of nothing done.

We started the day off at the Visitor’s Center; it’s time to get some mail from home so we checked with the receptionist to see whether they would accept a package for us; once we had approval we passed the info on to our daughter and voila — we can get caught up with the world.

This location also has a really nice (though 10 years old and a little outdated) video about the Great Flood of 1927.  This area — at Grenada MS — is at the heart of the legislation that resulted in the Corps of Engineers entire flood protection campaign and it was interesting to hear some of the details.  Some day when I have more inclination to write a LONG post I’ll see about sharing some of that with you.  But for the time we achieved our purpose at the visitors’ center and returned to our site.

Then the long process of sorting and resorting the basement storage bays.  I know that’s not exciting, but I’ve been putting it off for so long and struggling to get everything INTO the bays even though we have more storage in Serendipity  than we ever had in the Journey.

We began, looking like this:

and when we were done,

After finishing up with that I had time to sit out under our awning and just chill.  To enjoy the view, listen to the birds, watch the grasshoppers; to chill.  To be honest, we have been so busy since leaving Springfield that I haven’t really spent time sitting outside enjoying life like this.  It felt wonderful.  And I’m looking forward to a lot more of this.  Even if the temps aren’t this warm (79º as I write this late on Friday afternoon)  it’s a great place to chill.

I think I’ll even get at some of the indoor organization projects we have in mind.

Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
