The blogging world is still relatively new to me. I read a blog one year ago, Casita Escapes, and found the power of an immediate connection with someone far away, a person that I knew our paths would cross. Then the winter trip to Arizona became a reality and I needed a way to communicate our travels with loved ones and stay off of Facebook (for security reasons).
The writing and posting pictures was such a pleasure when I could do it. We kept finding ourselves in remote areas without internet and cell connections. I never learned how to write off line, so the posts were few and far between.
Then it was over and we were back to ordinary life....life in between trips. We left again in April and June but the July trek to the mountains motivated me to write again. (Maybe it was the misery?) By adding Casita in the Mountains to Casita in the Desert, I was able to use the same URL.
Now I am reading other blogs, trying to learn how to do what others do. A how-to blog disturbed me by stating that one should know what they are going to write about before they begin. Don't know about that! I don't know what I am about to say. That is one of the reasons I write, to know what I am thinking!
It's early morning and a full day stretches in front of us. The window installer should appear at the duplex this morning and I must impress on him that we are LEAVING town and he MUST get through this week. Everything else is just about finished and we will lock up, leave, and worry about renting the place when we return.
Casita Enterprises came through and our new front door locks were waiting on the porch yesterday. It looks like they will fit with some minor adjustments. I like the idea of being able to lock the door from the inside.
No brake adjustments were needed according to our Trucks and Trailer. So with the new locks and the new tires, all we need to do is start packing. Heading west!
