Happy Thanksgiving Day

To all the Canadian readers. Enjoy your turkey with all the trimmings, and family and friends.

I'm going to be busy today with trying to clean the rest of my carpet. I did about 1/3 of the living area yesterday (or more like 1/4) and after drying it looks ok. Not all the spots came out, but at least I know the rug is fairly clean for now. I may have it steam cleaned in a month or so and see what they can do with the stubborn remnants of Lassen volcanic soil. The total area is so small (compared to a regular house or apartment), so it's difficult moving things around. I have some dining chairs lined up in the bedroom, and the kitchen floor is filled to capacity. Yesterday I wiped the wood surfaces with wood polish, but now I notice the little spaces around the windows that have collected Lassen dirt as well. It will never end. I have never been an obsessive house cleaner, and this is not my idea of a good time!

I knew it was cold last night when the heat came on several times. I have the setting at the lowest possible, which is 50F, I believe. The sun is shining this morning so it has probably warmed up already. I'm off soon to find a place to leave my recycling - I've been carrying it around since I left California. I can't believe that RV parks don't have recycling bins, but believe it or not they don't, even in Oregon. By now I have a good collection of Miller bottles and cans, and will probably see a smirk or a raised eyebrow when I take them to be turned in. For a nickel a bottle and can they can smirk all they want.

I've procrastinated long enough this morning - back to work for me.
