Being Exactly Who We Are Meant To Be

Life always gives us reminders of why we do what we do and the other morning was no different.  

We replaced our microwave a few years ago with a lower voltage since we were boondocking a lot more often but our keen senses caught it before it went up in flames while using it the other day.  We became aware of the smell and then the strange noise coming from it so we immediately stopped it, unplugged it and removed it before it began to smolder.  


We replaced it and are just grateful that as bad as things get, they are not as bad as they could have been if we were not open and aware of our surroundings.

We are still recuperating from the long days of work, not just from the pumpkins but remember we worked the Kansas State Fair, then drove like truckers for 5 days and then straight to work at the pumpkins so this has truly been nice for us.  Especially since I am finding so much work online that we may continue doing this until January, life is truly so good once we stop fighting it and allow it to just flourish for us.

I feel at home just the way things are currently, feeling connected to the Universe and allowing it all to just engulf us is such a relaxing feeling.

We are hanging out at several resorts located in the Desert Hot Springs.




Just enjoying soaking in the hot springs, writing and living in a better state of mind then we have for so many months now.  Life is Grand once again!

We had our tires rotated... (Maggie with no shoes...SCARY!)



And, ran a few errands in between a few of the resorts thus far and have another move planned in a few days where we will pick up our Thanksgiving meal and other needed items since we are scheduled to be at our next location through the holiday.  After that move we will be heading to Vegas for the NASCAR Champion Event.  We have been wanting to attend it for so many years but we had always been working and since we are off at this time it is a perfect opportunity. 

We had an eventful weekend with the weather.  On Saturday they were predicting some heavy winds for Sunday early morning, around 4am but the winds continued to get stronger all day Saturday and we thought they had the timing messed up but oh we were so wrong.  Even though the winds were quite strong all day Saturday and into the night it was NOTHING like what we felt at 4am on Sunday morning.  It literally bounced us up and out of bed, it felt as if somebody had hit our motorhome and then we continued to rock and roll at a high speed for the next few hours.  Daybreak finally came and the wind settled down a bit and for the first time in a very long time the weather forecasters were spot on.  I suppose even out west we still have some weather situations where I lose sleep but we will take this over all the weather they are having all over the country now.
