Tested the airbed today. It’s comfy!
I thought I’d better get it out of the box and inflate it to make sure there are no defects, rather than wait until it’s time to drive to Texas for my Casita. I emptied out the Perfect Tow Vehicle and opened all the doors so there’d be enough light to take a photo for you.
The airbed is a Coleman which matches the rechargeable air pump I had already purchased for my inflatable canoe. That’s the canoe in the blue duffel bag. The nozzle fit and the bed and pillow sections inflated nicely. The reviewers said it was difficult to deflate and put back into the attached bag. I didn’t have any trouble at all. Maybe it requires rug-rolling experience — it’s all about the tight roll to start!
I spent some time lying on the airbed in the van, dreaming . . . sigh.
Until the Georgia heat drove me out. It was in the nineties today. On May 22nd! This former New Yorker is still surprised by Georgia weather. Spring goes by so fast you can get a sunburn picking daffodils. Look at the brown grass in the photo! Anyway. I made a mental note to bring my big oscillating fan on the Texas trip. The canine crew members will be breathing hot air in my face all night, no doubt.
I bought some pots and pans today.
Over the past six years I haven’t replaced anything that wore out. My pots and pans were getting old. I gave them to Goodwill. No need to replace them because I wasn’t cooking anymore. I thought it would be fun to wait until the time for leaving on my adventure drew near before buying new stuff.
And fun it is!
I bought a Farberware set for $44.00. It was on sale from $49.00 at Wal-Mart. I know, I know. It’s a cheap set. Well, it is Farberware and I’ll be cooking only for me so it won’t get much wear and tear.
I also picked up some more utensils and a set of flatware. I feel like a young bride setting up house!
Yes, what fun!
