A Blogger I Follow Stopped by to Say Hi

This is what I get for not posting more often…lots and lots to talk about and pictures to post. 

First…guess who stopped by to say hi?   Loree and her dog Luci, from RV blog Life With Luci & Loree... 

It felt like we’d known each other forever and we didn’t have to spend a lot of time getting acquainted.  What a great visit it was!!  They’re on their way to Iowa to visit a friend.  I suggested that she might be a bit crazy to voluntarily go to an area that is hot and humid.  She’s driving her Honda Element and plans on sleeping in it at KOAs along the way.  She left her Bounder at home.  I think what we have in common are RV issues that need to be dealt with.  We’re both aware of them and dealing with them in our own way.  It’s good to know that I’m not the only one out there with issues. 

Second…some more pictures showing the beauty of Twin Falls…

Third…I need to get out of here, or rather, quit going to a particular nursery in Bellevue, ID.  I go for one thing and one thing only and always end up finding something else.  This is going to be a somewhat long story because there’s no way I can shorten it.  It’s crazy enough that you might want to keep reading. 

I’m back to decorating bowling balls for yard art to fill some of the many hours I have to fill.  I know, I know, bowling balls are heavy, but I stopped at four and two of them are fairly light. 

I’m almost embarrassed to say this but it’s the truth so I will.  Back when I first started decorating bowling balls I used a styrofoam base to hold the ball…

Because my styrofoam base is in storage in Tucson I needed to come up with something else but all I could think of was how well the styrofoam base worked.  Lowe’s was having a sale on gazing balls and they’re packed with styrofoam, so I bought one.  

Not just for the sytrofoam but for the gazing ball too, since I really like them.  But I like my bowling balls more. 

Back to the nursery in Bellevue, ID.  I needed to kill time one day so I drove there (over 100 miles round trip).  I love nurseries and they had a wrought iron stand for gazing balls…

I liked the gazing ball stand because my bowling balls would also fit in them…

so I went back another day and bought another wrought iron stand.  But that wasn’t all.  I also bought this plant stand because it was for sale at a price I couldn’t pass up…

I kept decorating bowling balls and needed another wrought iron stand, so guess what.  Yep, I went back to the nursery in Bellevue, ID.  I was hoping for two wrought iron stands but there was only one left.  But, this was on sale for almost $150 off (a steal) so I bought it…


What sold me on it is that it folds up like this and takes up a lot less room..

For some reason, when I get to that nursery I forget my mantra…”I live in a motorhome.  I don’t have any room to buy anything.”  That hasn’t worked too well here in Twin Falls. 

I think there’s a lesson here for me…don’t stay in one place too long!!!  I guess I’m a nester and if I stay in one spot too long I start to nest.  It’s a good thing I have an SUV to put these purchases in because the basement in my RV has managed to get filled this trip!!!

Question:  Is the use of nesting and RVing in the same sentence or  paragraph or RV post an oxymoron?  

I made an RV purchase today…a trailer hitch.  Since I need to tow my car it was a must have purchase since I don’t have one.  There’s a U-Haul facility within walking distance so I’m going to go check on tow dollies and trailers.

One more thing.  I found this gadget at Office Max and its quite handy...

When I put my computer, printer and speakers away I just put the cords in this gadget so that I don't have to climb under my table to find them.  It saves my knees and prevents me from having to contort myself under the table to find them.  

The weather here in Idaho has gotten hot!!!  I think it's time to get out of here.  Hmmm...where am I going next???  Stay tuned.

Ready to go,
