Sunday, May 2, 2021 – A Lovely Visit with Maggie, Pack Up for Departure

Hi Sweetie!
Not a whisper of a breeze last night, so it was pretty hot for awhile. I’m really sorry I didn’t get further north earlier this year, these 90 degree days are a killer! After chores and breakfast, I did my PT exercises, first time in over a week! I thought that with all the riding and walking I’ve been doing that my knee would be fine, but when I did my exercises today, I had really taken a step backward, so I’m going to have to be more diligent in future! Maggie arrived just before noon, but it was so hot by then we decided just to hang out today, and ended up chatting all afternoon, grilling burgers again, and just having a pleasant day. She left around six, then I got busy packing up everything so that I can get out of here early tomorrow, it’s going to be a long day. I had a little trouble with the generator, it started fine, then petered out a few minutes later. I figured it was the propane so I opened another tank and started it again, and the same thing happened. I remember the low oil default, so I checked the oil and it was low, so I ended up putting about half a quart in, started it again, and the same thing STILL happened, though I think it was probably just because it was too hot. When I opened the cover, there was a big nest in there, so I know I still have mice. And last night, Lola had another barking fit in the middle of the night, so that’s another clue. I’m going to have to get brutal next week and really chase them down. Anyway, I still had two bars of fresh water left, and enough power in the batteries from the solar panel to watch a little TV and keep the fan running in the bedroom till I go to bed, so it was a really good experiment in boondocking this week. Had my shower, now I’m off to bed! Good night, darlin’! Love you!
