Warm and Windy!!

It is January 6th, 4PM, and about 78 degrees. Last night we slept with 2 of our bedroom windows open. We rolled out of bed about 7:45AM, unheard of at home, and the plans for Dennis to cook breakfast outside fell by the wayside as the morning winds picked up. It is impossible to keep our little Roadtrip Grill lit when the winds are high..and they are really high today. There are whitecaps on Canyon Lake all day today. I cooked breakfast inside, which I rarely do and don't want to make it a habit. One of the photos above is Dennis using his electric chainsaw on some gathered wood.."he who gathers his own wood, etc. , etc.....
Taking a little stroll was great cardio going against the wind. Den went into the woods to gather wood for our firepit. We brought some from home, but they allow you to gather wood here, too. Dinner tonight is shrimp on the charcoal grill, and maybe a campfire if the wind dies down. We don't want to set the entire residential section up the hill onfire. Last night the wind calmed at sunset and we sat outside until 7:30 by the fire. Here is a camper trick for fires...take a 7-9" piece of copper pipe, drill holes all over it and stuff a piece of old green garden hose in it..throw it into the campfire and watch the flame change to see how much the little things excite us old people??
Tomorrow is an exciting day..a trip to the local laundromat, one of the more thrilling parts of "on the road" living but sometimes very interesting. Local laundrys bring out some real quirks in people.
We are enjoying having internet access at our fingertips..and so far the dish hasn't tipped over in the wind...Den put a bungee on it and screwed it into the ground. Hope all is well in for us, we are having a ball!! Life is good..more later.
