The traveling bug is what I'm referring to. I don't want to go far, but I want to go camping, maybe in a National Forest campground. If I go midweek I should miss all the drama and hopefully most of the RV's, although that's doubtful. I don't think they should ever mix tent camping with RV spots, but they all seem to do it. I'm not talking about the big RV's, but the smaller trailers. They seem to be the worst for stringing up lights, security cameras, etc. I hate to be pissy about it because if I could afford, and have the time to use, a small trailer such as a teardrop or runabout, I'd love to have one.
So how did I digress to this point? Back to camping, I'd like to stay fairly close to home, although there are some terrific campgrounds in the middle of the country too. What I really would like is an area where I can see the stars in the night sky, and have a bit of privacy and quiet. Finding a suitable place which is easy to get to without driving on a major road or interstate will be the challenge. It's probably not going to happen, but I'm going to dream about it.
I woke up in the middle of the night to a strange sound for May 31 - RAIN! It sounded like a soft, gentle rain that went on for some time, and when I woke up a couple hours later it was still raining softly. You'd have to live in California to understand my amazement - many or most of the states get rain year around, but we normally only get it during the winter months, if at all.
I just cleaned up the kitchen from breakfast and looked at the clock - my goodness, it's already Noon! It will be at least another hour or two before I'm ready for another meal. The days and weeks just fly by too fast for me to keep up any more.
The last two days I tried to cut back on the bacon & eggs, or eat something else, but I have been so lethargic I went back to 2 slices of bacon and 2 eggs this morning and I feel so much better! The bread is pretty bad though - it doesn't taste bad but it crumbles and falls apart. I think I will try toasting it and maybe get better results. It seems like a waste of time to get the toaster down from the cupboard for one slice of bread.
Still no hummingbirds. I cleaned the feeder and put new nectar out - a little more this time. I'll just have to be patient. It is possible that there are a lot of flowers this year due to the rains we've been having, so maybe the birds will be visiting my feeder a little later in the season.
My son needs to borrow my car this afternoon so that takes care of the ToDo list I made. I don't feel like rushing out to get things done, and nothing is that important anyway. I discovered I have another week before the library book is due.
