I don’t know if it is the weather ( I suspect it is) but it seems the past couple of days have been spent doing just about nothing. Even the dogs seem a bit on the “leave me alone, I just want to sleep” side. It isn’t necessarily the temperature but the humidity that zaps your energy.
We did venture to Columbus yesterday to pick up my new glasses. I have been so excited anticipating their arrival. It has been a little over three years since I changed them and needed that fix. To give you the short version….the lens were not correct. They didn’t use the lens I had been used to and it appears the difference is HUGE. My vision was terrible….all fuzzy and blurry. Not good. So we didn’t accept them and will start over again next week.
We have several good RV friends that have taken their rigs and made them a little less RV looking. The first that comes to mind is Doug and JoAnn Dubrouillet who painted the inside of their fifth wheel. They used the southwestern colors and décor…very nice! JoAnn then linked me to The Bayfield Bunch who have not only painted their motorhome but removed all the RV furniture and added items from places like IKEA NOT an RV manufacturer. Again, very nice! Then there is Fred and Jo Wishnie who removed all of their RV furniture and replaced it with very nice high end furniture, Howard and Linda Payne who removed their RV sofa and now have two very comfortable recliners. Randy and Pam Warner removed one of their nice leather sofas and replaced it with an even more comfortable recliner and a handmade computer desk. And I am very sure there are tons of others. Now if those guys have the courage to personalize the rubber stamp look of an RV so do I. We had already added two Lazy Boy recliners but with the sofa it was a little crowded. The RV sofa is not too comfortable and through the years was getting a little on the worn side. So last night Mike and I took it apart and removed it from the living area. We now have the two very comfortable Lazy Boy recliners, the two leather pilot and co-pilot chairs turned to make a nice “conversation” area. We plan to purchase a piece of furniture from Pier 1 to place under the window. We have the desk/credenza and table with two upholstered chairs. There is so much more room and it looks very nice. Our dogs have not made the transition yet; they are still looking for the sofa to jump up on.
That about wraps up another beautiful weekend. Next weekend will be busy in the campground with Memorial Day weekend. Mike will also be busy helping out a few hours here and there during the 51st Masters Water Ski Tournament held annually at Callaway Gardens. He’s not sure what he will be doing but he sure is excited about being back at Callaway even for a short time. One thing for sure….it won’t be food service.
