The rig is back in the driveway, the fridge unloaded, the bedding and dirty clothes are taken out and the dogs pouted all the while we were unloading. They hate to come home.
Then, using up some of the water in the motorhome freshwater holding tank, I start up the outside shower faucet and gave each dog a good sudsy bath right on the lawn next to the motorhome. It's so easy to spray them off right there instead of struggling with a bathtub. Each had so much tick spray on their fur from the weekend, they needed a bath to remove it all. It was almost like hair spray! Popped them up on the deck to dry in the sunshine while we did a few more tasks around the house.
We have a Hopkins Tire Pressure Monitoring system on our rig. We noticed on our way up to the campground, we kept getting one sensor that would lose connection, and finally it would not work at all. Steve checked the tire pressure and it was fine, just the sensor was going whonky. Steve removed it and it had a bulge on one side of it. He just put on a regular valve cap on the stem and we continuted on our way.
This happened once before just a few months after we first got the system, so I know the new sensors will come by UPS in a day or two and all will be fine before we go again. The peace of mind having a tire pressure monitoring system is nice, but Steve checks all the tires regularly too.
This evening, I was thinking of getting the power washer out (set on gentle to use the soap feature) and do our awnings on the rig. I wanted Stevieo to help, but Steveio decided he wanted to work on our riding lawn mower, and he said we can wash them another day. They have not been done yet this spring and could use a good washing, as well as the rig. The weatherman said it's not too promising the rest of the week. If I am gonna get all wet, I want it on a warm day where it's kinda fun to do it!
As for catching up part in my title, today I finished up six pairs of socks by closing the toes up and steaming them into shape ... it helps the yarn to *bloom* into a set shape and makes em softer and fuzzier. I had knit up these 6 pairs on the weekend (actually I knit 8 pairs but left two in the camper) Here they are, 4 pairs for one customer, 2 pairs for another customer and the rug in the background is for a third customer who bought it from my Etsy store. All will get packed up and shipped out in the morning.
Now for the shameless granmuddah photos.. haha
I take SO many pics and I just HAVE to share them!
Here is Jameson----- 22 months old
Next comes Allegra --- she is 6 months old tomorrow
And last, (but not least) is little Chelsea, who is almost 5 months old
Oh , I can hear the Steveio got the lawnmower going... so I guess washing the awnings are up to me now.
