We left there Wednesday morning, encountering some fairly serious (20-25 mph) winds while driving through Kansas. We stopped to visit some treasured friends in Champaign, Illinois, and spent Friday night at their house. Back on the road Saturday morning, we traveled about 10 miles in 30-40 mph winds that ripped off our awning. After a 2-hour wait for roadside service, I helped a service tech cut the awning loose and remove the remaining awning arm from the motorhome while we fought the wind. Five hours later we reached the park.
While we were in Arizona, we took another step toward my resuming my writing career. For 5 years Susie had wanted to replace our dining table and booth seats with a writing desk. We discovered that some friends in Mesa wanted to replace their dining table and chairs with a table and booth seats, so we gave them ours and bought a desk. Below are photos of before and after.
My plan for this summer is to get up at 5:00 so I can write for an hour before Susie begins her day. I have also set some quarterly, monthly, and weekly writing goals. I'll keep you posted as I achieve my goals.
