I now have my blog set  up on 2 different sites to see if I can determine whether I have a preference. So far I am experiencing mostly frustration about blogging. I hope to actually get the hang of it soon so I will keep trying.

The recovery from surgery is continuing to go well but due to recovering there hasn't been much of interest happening lately. So no adventures to report today. With any luck, after Mike has finished with his errands we will have a small adventure cleaning out part of the garage.

The weather yesterday felt more like the middle of winter rather than the end of May. This has been a crazy spring. It will be interesting to see what the summer is like after all of this cold stormy weather. I have managed to get a few flowers planted in the pots on the front porch but will need to visit a nursery again soon.

Additional Name Change

As I was checking back through some of my previous posts I saw that another name change needs to be noted. We tried several names for our new kitten the one being used at the time I posted her picture was Gidget. That turned out to not suit her as well as we thought it might. We kept coming back to Molly which is now her permanent name. It often gets expanded to Molly Mischief because of her antics.

If you have been following my travel blog you should have noticed the name change. Since we will be home for quite a while I decided that "On The Road Again" probably wasn't an appropriate title any more. Hopefully the same blog with a new title will cover all of the bases.

We limped home from our trip to New Mexico on May 1st. I say "limped" because of the wear and tear on the trailer that had occurred over the 4 weeks. Some were minor such as the cabinet hinges working loose but the big one was the duel in the used car lot between the back end of the trailer and a parked pickup truck. The trailer lost. The end cap was pulled loose which caused some tearing in the fiber glass, a damaged tail light and loss of the vent covering for the refrigerator. With the help of a roll of heavy duty duct tape and some window screen we were able to get things temporarily patched up for the rest of the trip. The trailer is now at a local RV place awaiting repairs.

Returning home of course involved unloading and putting away most of what we had taken along on the trip and doing lots of laundry. We also had to get Malachi back into the school routine. Eleven days after we returned I had surgery and have spent the past week recovering from that.

My next big adventure will be a sale to get rid of many of my craft supplies. I'm hoping to be ready for that by June 25. There will be lots of fabric, yarn, scrapbooking supplies and other miscellaneous craft things to be sold. I haven't decided yet what to do with the proceeds of the sale. I have been promising myself that it won't be used to purchase any more craft supplies. Oh dear! Hopefully once my crafting areas have been cleared out a bit I will be able to get some actual crafting done.
