All the leaves are brown

brown

… and the sky is gray. Did you sing that? Dave and I were on our way home from an appointment this morning and that song popped into my mind – it was a very fitting description of the scenery on this sometimes-rainy day.

We’ve enjoyed some really beautiful and unseasonably warm weather recently. But looks like the party is about over and cooler temps are on the way. I’m actually looking forward to those cooler temps – this apartment has a SW exposure and the afternoon sun beating on the huge windows keeps it rather toasty in here. We have this lovely gas fireplace and it sure would be nice to use it! I suspect we’ll have ample opportunity over the next several months though.

Loveseat order has been delayed once again. No timeframe provided, just an email advising of further delays. Dave has already decided his ankle surgery will not be scheduled until sometime after the holidays, but soon enough so that he’s recovered before camping season begins again up here.  Not doing much walking, so no pain at the moment.

COVID19 is becoming more widespread up here, as is the case pretty much everywhere these days. The # of positive cases is rising quickly and hospitals are becoming overwhelmed.  Field hospitals are projected to open within the next 2 weeks. We’ll be staying home a lot more going forward, and will have to keep our visits with family limited to Facetime chats for a while.  Thanksgiving will be just us two – but at least we have each other, and we actually kind of like each other! LOL  Our hearts go out to those, like Paul, who are single and will be alone. – At least he has Samson to keep him company.

My friends and family, I know that some of you do not believe that COVID19 is for real and/or that the government should do its best to protect its citizens. I can’t honestly say that I understand your view, but I do ask that you please do your best to protect ME, and others – wear a mask! I just do not understand why that is too much to ask! I do not understand why that is deemed a political statement. I see it as a sign of respect and caring. It’s not about YOU! It is about doing what you can do protect everyone around you. And, yes – I know the verdict is still out on exactly how this virus spreads, etc. – but over all, wearing a mask has been seen as a major way to stop the spread. I thank all of you who follow the “wear a mask” advisements.

Please wear a mask!

I struggle with the name of this blog. We no longer live in our Reflection, but I do still reflect on our life. And our Reflection will provide a summer getaway come mid-May.  Perhaps I just need to update the blog description. Have to think on that. 

Peace be with you all.

Dave and I have been living full time in our Grand Design Reflection 27RL since December 3, 2017. We share our space with our cat, Audrey, and grand dog, Samson. UPDATE: So much has changed in our lives during Autumn 2020! Samson is very happy to be back living with Paul, Audrey crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and we moved into an apartment. We plan to use the camper as a summer getaway going forward. . . no more traveling (with the camper, anyway!) As always, looking forward to new adventures!

  1. Miss you both! Please stay safe and healthy, with you 150% on the mask issue. It’s going to be a very different holiday season this year.

    I think the name of your blog still is very appropriate. Reflection on your life, from your point of view is beautiful and I am thankful you share!

  2. Crazy, I never knew that “Reflection” was the name of your travel mode! I’m with you on the mask thing, and even have made it a requirement of my passengers. They are not very happy about it. The virus is raging here too. All of Ohio’s counties are now “red” and Holmes County, home to the Amish, is one of the hardest hit in the state. My brother has gone from 12-14 drivers down to 8. Of the 8, 4 have contracted covid. Two are still very ill, and one’s wife just died….I was planning on visiting Jay & Annie, but will probably change that idea. As much as I want to see them, the thought of being in the car all those hours and unable to hug or get close once I get there really bothers me. I’ve started decorating for the holidays to try to cheer myself up, but I’m pretty miserable anyway. Snuggling with a loved one in front of a fireplace sounds like heaven. Enjoy!
