Today was a very nice fall day. Cool morning, high in mid 60’s and sunny. No complaints.
After a hearty breakfast omelet, today was set aside to unload FRED and get re-organized. When we return to Alabama after being gone for awhile it always takes one or two days of re-organizing the house and FRED. Today started with cleaning out the house refrigerator and then transferring the food from FRED to the house. Still have to wipe down FRED’s fridge and we always leave a few things in FRED like extra soft drinks and water. It took a little reorganizing the house deep freezer before transferring all the frozen food we got at Murphy Harpst. Then we transferred the food from Fred’s pantry to the house pantry. We knew we took too many clothes with us on this journey but really knew it when we had to carry them all back inside the house. Today was also the day to empty and clean the holding tanks. That project always takes a little longer when we return home since we want everything to be really clean. Maybe the biggest project of the day was to go through all the mail that has arrived. It was a huge amount this time. A lot more junk mail since one of us is approaching Medicare age and everyone seems to want our business. Seems we received four and five Medicare ads some days. For those of you that also travel, the USPS now has a free service where you can receive a daily email with scanned images of the mail that will be delivered that day. It helps to know when we need to have things mailed to us or opened for us. You can check it out – USPS Informed Delivery. Finally made it through all the mail, but still have some of the real mail to handle and file away. All the junk filled up the kitchen waste basket. Too bad we don’t have paper recycling anymore. That was our day. Should have worn the step counter today. We walked a couple of miles late this afternoon but don’t know what we did just going from house to FRED and back.
