End of Summer?
Hello Again! Here it is, another Thursday and I have a busy day planned. I've already driven in from the lake, picked up two prescriptions at Walgreens, washed two loads of laundry and now I'm trying to catch up on computer "stuff". I'm having my yearly mammogram this morning, "joy"! Then I have an eye appointment this afternoon. I'm also trying to get a bit organized in case my daughter calls and tells us our new granddaughter is on the way. We want to be able to pretty much "drop" everything and go to Portland when that happens. Since I'll be there several weeks, I need to take more things with me than I usually do. There has been a definite nip in the air lately here in the Inland Northwest. It was in the 30's this morning at the lake and we didn't have the heat on. I had a very difficult time getting out of bed. Last weekend we turned the furnace on in the camper for the first time. At about 12:45 a.m. we were rudely awakened by the carbon monoxide detector. We opened all the windows and hubby waved a rug in front of the sensor for awhile until it shut off. We were afraid we would wake up everyone in the campground! Hubby decided the problem was probably that the furnace had never been on before and the paint, etc. needed to burn off and it gave off fumes. So, Saturday evening when it started cooling off again, we opened all the windows and both doors and turned the furnace on at 85 degrees! It ran and ran but I think it's better now. We were able to sleep on Saturday with the furnace on and we didn't get awakened again. A few pictures of the beauty around me at Loon Lake.
