Not exactly sure what I have been doing but I do something everyday.
The other Friday, I throw out supper. I had put a chicken breast in the new slow cooker in the morning with a cream soup (I did this previously in the bigger cooker). But it never got up to temperature of 165 F, according to the internet. I heated up frozen vegetables, fried some potatoes and put that together. I checked the chicken, it still didn't look right, so I added chicken chunks to the fry pan. I attempted to eat what I made, but I didn't trust the chicken, so in the garbage it went. Hate throwing out food, but I wasn't taking the chance on food poisoning. Not sure if it was the slow cooker or the chicken, since the soup was current. That was my first disaster in making a meal. I've been really good at cooking my own meals without using Skip The Dishes. A hot dog was then what I could do quickly.
We had an accumulation of snow the last weekend in February. I had planned for this and got what I needed regarding groceries so I didn't have to travel. I took a couple of pictures of the result. I thought it was rather cool as we had a west wind and looking closely, the drivers side had an area that reminded me of someone surfing, with the way the curve of the snow was. When it stopped, I cleaned the car off. I wanted to avoid having to scrape the windows and the sun did melt the snow remaining on the car.
This past Monday, I planned on putting ties in the duvet cover. When I bought the cover back in October, the cover did not come with ties. The ties help to keep the duvet in place. Over the last couple of weeks I found material (an apron that George used in the restaurant) and cut it up to use for ties. My sister-in-law brought me a portable sewing machine. I started the process of getting the ties sewed into the cover, except the bobbin ran out of thread. Now, I haven't sewn in years and it was a machine I wasn't familiar with. So, to fix this, I packed up the sewing machine, duvet and duvet cover and went to my sister-in-laws. Success, ties sewn in the duvet cover and tied.
I have been working on a list of repairs done on the RV since 2006, sorting through manuals etc to go with the RV and listing some things I know that I will sell. Yes, the RV will be sold. I just need now to take a look at what is in it and decide from there. George knew that I won't keep the RV. Hooking up the car to the RV is beyond my capabilities. He also knew that I would have to create a new life for myself. What a smart man. My brother made a comment a while ago that he thought the RV was empty. Fat chance. I told him, only the top half is empty. He was a tad surprised at that.
I purchased Command hooks that are meant to be used to hang brooms etc. They have been in the corner of the front closet and often times fall, which is a nuisance. Therefore, the hooks. Now, they stay in place and are easily removed.
The other day I saw the garbage truck pick up the garbage. I have seen them before but I was able to take pictures of the process. When we first moved here, I wondered how the garbage and recycle was picked up. What a cool process.

|Near the front of truck, an arm of sorts was raised|
|The arm lifted the bag out and into the truck|
|The arm putting the bag back in container.|
During the process, the operator loosened the ties, then when the bag was over the truck, pulled and the bag opened. The garbage was now in the truck. I found the process very cool.
Today was a Spring like day (50 F, 10 C). The forecast for the next 14 days, we will have above freezing temperatures. Wonderful. Will see if that happens. Hopefully it does, because I would like to get out to the RV and take a good look at the compartments. See what to keep and what to sell. Of course making a note of everything.
Going forward, day by day.
