What I would LIKE to do is more photography. I'm NOT calling this a resolution because I already know I'm going to fall off the wagon, but I AM going to carry these lists around in my phone so you nice folks can see pictures of more than just my puppies.
It's called a 365 Project, although I've already pared it down to 260. You take their suggestion and find something to shoot that day. You will probably still see the puppies because I'm cheating ... number 11 Cozy will be the babies.
I did not find the 365 Project until last night, so here is one for Monday .. Resolutions and Tuesday .... Healthy. I resolve to take MORE images of interesting things. Doesn't this leopard look HEALTHY?? This came from the Rose Parade, although you know I wasn't there. I just wanted to point out how amazing it is.
You can't imagine how hard it is to paint thick glue on all those spots, then press on the seeds, or crushed coffee or whatever they used, by hand and before the glue dries. I imagine they covered the body with the tan color first, then did the spots. A couple of years ago I did this to a map of the world. You end up with glue all over your clothes and your mouth full of seeds and coffee, but you smell nice. If you ever have the time, volunteer for this amazing feat of magic. Take a really warm coat!!
I checked in on the baby a couple of times ... he's doing just fine. It looks like the second egg will not hatch. Actually, it was the first egg laid, which did not get incubated from the get go. That's good for Charley here, as he will get all the attention and all the FOOD!!
It's back to packing for me in the cold, wet rain. It's looking like I'll have rain the first few days of my trip. Rain is good, snow is NOT.
Here's another one of my "so you don't have to" trials. Ever wonder if you could wash your motorhome in the rain and just let it air dry? The answer is NO. The day before I got sick, it was raining pretty good. I put on my Alaska rubber boots and my hooded rubber jacket. I decided against using soap since the forecast didn't look like lots of rinsing rain was headed my direction.
The best part came when all the bugs on the front just slid right off, having been wet for a day already. All the dirt and grime that comes pouring over the edge from the roof was another story. Of course it didn't help that after I was done, even MORE crud came from the roof. All in all, it's better, but not by much.
If I had climbed up on the roof and washed it too, things might have been better in the end, but I do have at least SOME smarts and stayed on the ground. Hopefully while we are in Yuma this year, we will do another round of wash and wax.
The Magic Kingdom of Bingo begins again tonight. That will make a great picture for Thursday .... Magic. It will be fun when I MAGICALLY disappear after a couple of hours saying goodbye!!
So what's YOUR resolution for 2017??
