Day 44 - South Llano River State Park, TX
I spent much of the day reading. I got a Kindle earlier this year and it has almost 300 books on it. I should always have something that will interest me.
Camping days are also the days that I can do a little bit of cooking ahead. I've got cooked chicken and a big pot of lentils all ready to be included in future meals. Last night I made pizza. I made the dough earlier and then cooked it on my electric griddle (thanks again for the griddle Michelle). Then I put on the toppings and melted the cheese in the microwave. I know this is the way that Daniel Boone did it!
Brett has a bee in his bonnet about clean windows for some reason. The urge to putter just overcame him and the dirty windows probably looked too tempting. But now we will be able to see the neighbors if any come in for the weekend. Brett is standing on our two step ladder which we keep inside mainly so that I can reach into the upper cabinets. He has noted that most motor homes travel with a regulation ladder of some sort and thinks that we should have one. I told him if everybody else has one then he could borrow one if he needed it. That was me saving him from himself.
And we were finally able to put out the yard art. I am amazed at the decorations that some people travel with. But it doesn't make for a quick getaway in the morning if you have to pack up all the knick knacks first. We also brought some awning lights along but have not put those out yet.
Brett is enjoying a campfire this evening. Contrary to most of them, this one lit with one match and a piece of newspaper as opposed the the entire New York Times and a can of napalm which is the norm. He is sitting outside in the dark basking in the glow of his handy work. Now that is camping!
