Day 2: We moved from Doc’s in Gulf Shores to Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve near Atmore AL.

Magnolia Branch is a lovely campground with large, wooded lots. The campground is bordered by lakes, ponds, and a creek. It is my favorite rural campground.

Day 3
Parked in our new spot.
Day 4
The rotating mess on the dinette table.
Day 5
A nice grilled cheese for supper.
Day 6
Not my most environmentally correct choice.
At least I can recycle the bottles here.
Day 7
With Valentine’s Day coming up, we thought some crafty hearts would be fun to make on a rainy day.

I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments help me feel connected. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE.

1. WHQ looks a lot better without the factory window treatments. Four more to take down. I need to replace those yucky sidelights too.

2. The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo
The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo opened in June 1989 as Zooland Animal Park and has evolved into The Gulf Coast Zoo 2.0 with a new location and facilities. It’s a real gem.

3. Joe Biden is now President of America. I believe he will fix the mess his predecessor left.
Does not mean he wont leave his own mess.

I hope the first month of 2021 was excellent for you. I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments inspire me. May love and oneness be with you. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Vaxx Now

1. An RV Christmas Tree. It is the first one in several years. Things are different, more magical, with a child on board.

2. This is the first time since the initial lock down the first of 2020 that I have lived close enough to a store that delivers or to any delivery service to have groceries delivered. I can truthfully say that I love having groceries brought to the door. That frees up a lot of time and limits risk. I could get spoiled.

3. I’ve been baking banana bread in my slow cooker. It’s easy and works well. My technique is improving with practice.

4. A vaccine in finally available. YAY. Vaxx Now

I hope you had great holiday. Wishing you all the best in 2021. I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments help me feel meaningfuld. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Vaxx Now

The Holidays

13 Comments

Once it was my favorite time of year, now the holidays are difficult for me. From Halloween until the New Year was joyous. Then my world and I changed.
Fifteen or so years ago my ex announced she wanted a divorce. That crushed my heart and my world. I’ve never found another person to share life. For a while I looked. That was a waste of time. I think finding another partner was never in the cards. I have accepted that.
Eleven years ago in late October and early November my parents died two weeks apart. They were the last spark of holiday joy. My mom was the spirit of Christmas in our family.
My children were grown and gone. With my wife and children gone and my parents gone I can’t muster up any holiday cheer though I try.
There is so much grief associated with holidays.

This year I’ve gotten a holiday cheer boost. A child is spending November and December in the rig. He brings his own holiday joy and it’s contagious I need more new good Christmas memories like this.

I read somewhere one should name their holiday grief. Name it and honor it. This year my holiday grief is the memories of good Christmas celebrations in my parent’s home. I’ll light a candle and place it on the not-an-altar.

I feel like I’m rambling so I think I’ll stop.

Thank you for stopping in. Your visits, likes, and comments are greatly appreciated . Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you love and joy.

1. Kudos to Chase Visa. December 1, I purchased $100 of fuel at Speedway. The next morning there was a email from Chase regarding a charge they denied. It was an additional $150 charge at Speedway. Thank you for saving me money Chase. They are sending out a new card.

2. The child on board brought holiday joy when he arrived. It’s been a long time. It goes with my theme during this time of Covid ice-o-lation, “think different thoughts”. I needed this booster shot of joy.

It’s been a few years since the last Christmas tree

3.

The Nativity we saw during our bicycle ride.

4. My 1SE for November. A video of snippets from my November.

Thankful

I thought I would share a thankful list. I am grateful for so much.

1. I did not die a few years back when my heart decided to slow down and stop. Pacemakers, doctors, nurses, techs, hospitals, family and friends saved my life. I am living in the bonus years thanks to all this. I appreciate this time and I am trying to make the most of it.

LIVE LIKE YOU ARE DYING

2. Living the life I picked. Seven years ago I realized I did not want to die sitting in a recliner watching television. I sold, gave away, or trashed most my belongings, sold my house and moved into an RV. I am grateful for the life I have on the road. Location independence is nice.

My rolling home

3. I’m grateful for faith and confidence. The microwave/convection oven in WHQ is failing. I believe I can replace it.
Faith and confidence in a higher power supply me with faith and confidence in myself. Living alone it’s nice knowing God (pick a label you like) has my back.

4. I am grateful for friends who keep tabs on me and come for visits. Sometimes they travel with me.

5. I am thankful for the quarter I found on the ground. Quarters are important for laundry day.
I am thankful for tonight’s campfire and much other stuff.

Thank you for coming by. Your visits, likes, and comments are a delight. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you love and joy.

1. Corporate pollution really annoys me. Trump’s rollback of many environmental protection rules annoys me. This particular coal ash problem in Alabama is ridiculous. There is no excuse. The same company has corrected the same problem in other states.

2. We visited a metaphysical shop today. Great fun. I got a new tarot deck, some candles, incense, a tree of life box, and some other items.
The reader was excellent. She was right on target. The store was well stocked. The owner was knowledgeable and friendly.

Live and Let Live
It’s Smurfy

3.

I immediately thought of mother when I saw her peeking out of the Devil’s Backbone.

1. I found a word I didn’t know about before. One of thousands I’m sure. Lol

And a site that sends me one a day

2. I can’t always get a month long spot near the beach 🏝 for December but I did this year. It’s biking distance. Hopefully I can extent that into 2021.

3. A few years ago one of my close friends died. Today I was looking in one of his old notebooks and found my name. He’d made a note that he made a payment on a car I sold to him. The favorite find here is a sweet memories and feels.

4. The Good Place and The Room

Thank you for stopping in for a visit. Your visits lift my spirits. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Peace, love, and light.
