That first part of the title says it all.
After two days of working hard -- today we did nothing.
When you can decide to do nothing sometimes -- it makes you love this life style.
We showed 86 degrees today on the thermometer but because the humidity was so low it felt very comfortable.
We are watching a line of thunderstorms to the west of us. They are supposed to arrive tomorrow.
For Kentucky this is an annual event this time of year. The same thing happens. A line of thunderstorms comes out of the west and the only question is how severe they will be.
This looks to be the first of the year so we will just keep an ear to the weather forecasts.
We had to do some doctoring on Banjo (the dog) today. He managed to cut himself on his side.
It is a pretty severe cut and required that we shave some of his hair to get some medicine and a bandage on him.
Banjo is probably the most patient dog I have ever seen. He will let you do most anything to him and never protest.
Today he was no different it was as if he knew we were trying to help him and he stood as still as he could while we fixed him up.
We will keep a close watch on it for any infection but it should heal fine. It will require a few bandage changes over the next couple of days.
Actually I did do one thing -- I grilled out tonight for dinner -- nothing fancy just some burgers but once Nanette added her side dishes it was a great meal -- as always.
Today I was thinking about how interesting it is to see the campground we are at start to wakeup.
We moved in on December 28th of last year and when we got here there were 7 other RVs already here.
It stayed at that number and it was very quiet.
Our own little community.
We got to know all the people that were here and spoke to them when the days were warm enough to get out and about.
A couple of weeks ago we heard the lawnmower start for the first time.
Then the Bobcat then another lawnmower.
Started seeing campfires at night.
The chairs come out under the awnings.
Then last week they opened the back half of the campground. Suddenly there were lights were there had been none.
We began to see RVs come in one at a time as the numbers of people here grew.
We then saw some tent campers show up a couple of days ago. We have seen some other kids show up and them riding their bikes.
We are seeing boats going up and down the river everyday now.
Today they cleaned the pool and turned on all the lights around it.
As I said it has been an interesting transition to watch the campground wake up.
We feel like all the new people are visitors to our community.
Nanette and I took a walk and began to notice the very small first blooms of spring.
The green is starting to come out -- a little more each day.
It is almost like we get up each morning being one step closer to the new season.
We even had the resident Geese show up the other day and they will stay all summer.
The changing of the seasons has always been a time of fascination for us. A renewing of nature playing out right in front of us -- on our own little stage.
It occurred to me that since we have been here I have become so much more aware of the subtle things -- the little things that went unnoticed by me for many years as I ran from one thing to another seldom stopping to notice such little things.
To me this is an element of our new lifestyle that makes everything we went through worth it.
This reprioritization is a center point of why we did all of this.
I just wanted to share with you some thoughts on what we have seen so far.
This is after all -- a big part of our adventure.
To focus on the things that matter -- the things that are out there for the taking to add to the happiness we cherish.
I would say to anyone that is working on going full time to never forget why you are doing it -- and once you are out here -- never forget to take in the things that pulled you out here in the first place.
Thank you for stopping by. I wonder what tomorrow will bring?
Ken and Nanette
