2/3/15 Tuesday in Clermont, FL (Orlando Preserve-TT)
Brr – 43 degrees this morning. Our heat pump is so ambitious that it overshoots our set temperature of 68 degrees, by about 10 degrees! Our sympathies for what the rest of the country is suffering – below 0 degrees and lots of snow.
Meanwhile, down in sunny Florida, I started my day with line dancing. It’s interesting how, after a cruise, you want to continue the pampered existence, that is, do little but receive. Then you find you have lots of energy (not having expended much) to grab hold of life. C’est la vie.
Speaking of energy, after lunch we each did a project: John installed a retractable clothes line in our shower for items we don’t want to put in the dryer like swim suits and wet rags waiting for the next wash day. We got it through Amazon for only $10.00. My project was to lube (with chain lube) the moving parts on our steps. It’s one of those jobs John doesn’t seem to feel is worthy of his time, so I’m glad to take it on.
On to Walmart for sofa covers and the post office. The sofa covers don’t quite work easily because these RV sofas are attached to the back and side walls, thus you can’t fit the cover over those areas. Not the normal situation in a regular home. I managed to get it to look okay on mine. John isn’t ready to try fitting one on his.
Then we rewarded ourselves with DVR tapes (taped while on our cruise) until supper. John whipped up meatloaf, then we dashed to the presentation on RV Tours, dashing back to finish making mashed potatoes and gravy. He even used our propane stove. We normally only use our induction plate. It was a great meat and potatoes meal, but I had my hands full washing all the mess.
Our evening was all TV.
