Welcome to our daily journal. Share it with a friend. www.TomAndEllaJournal.comAudio journal https://www.spreaker.com/user/12220003ach morning has been slightly warmer than the preceding day. This has been a good thing. However, as all good things go, it can be carried too far. Once it reaches the mid sixties, as far as I’m concerned, it can cease becoming warmer each day.hese power poles are a distraction. However, they also add some visual context. Whereas, if I crop them out of the photograph, the image of the sun becomes less interesting. And, considering how boring it was before, less is not more in this photograph..he groundskeepers were out and working early this morning.

That padding made a world of difference as I crawled in and out of the topper today.installed some LED lights which will be essential for nighttime use.ext I hung screening, just in case we do use it for short term camping. Got to keep mosquitos and other buzzing pests out.

The water was brought to a near boil, then carefully carried down the deck steps and poured into the ice chests which we are using for laundry tubs.

Not as much as my bride, it’s true, but some..The clothes were all washed and hung in the sun and breeze to dry. It was approaching one thirty and I hadn’t started any lunch. Previously, it had been decided to venture to the local grocery for milk and eggs. With a trip to town already decided, a drive through Golden Chick seemed to settle the question of lunch.pon returning home, it was time to recline and let the breezes flow across our weary bodies.
