July 23 ~ Monday ~ Rain, partly cloudy, a peek of sun.
Stayed in bed listening to the radio and the rain on the roof until...too late...then cleaned and rearranged things. Have discovered that I, again, have packed too many clothes (after taking less than last year already)...so decided to downsize, packing half away in the trailer black boxes AND bringing in scrapbooking materials in case I get a chance to start on the album while visiting David at Hick’s Creek construction site this week. Cleaned one of the fans in the camper and it is ever so bright and shiny now, letting in light I didn’t know was there. On this one Jack could unscrew the screen, but on the bathroom one I have to just spray with a cleaner then use the shower hose...and then remember to wipe the water that stays on the screen or we get dripped on when we least expect it.
Rained most of the morning, but became sporadic during the afternoon so Mark came over to help Jack set up our 18 foot octagon screened gazebo thingy from Cabela’s we had purchased shortly after buying the land...had left it here, not used...last year. It’s pretty cool! Big enough for getting out of the rain...company...storing things when we leave for a couple days. Might be Diane and Co. will stop in on their day to Denali this week and we’ll be ready for them.
Cleaned out and rearranged the trailer to take with us tomorrow when we go to David’s for the culvert...and the pipe/toilet from a hardware store...for our outhouse.
Have noticed the foliage is not as vibrant anymore...some even turning color. We really need to be here earlier in the spring so experience the first buds...and the longer days!
