Temperature 63 Degrees

A Chilly, Windy, Overcast Day

We have definitely done a flip flop again in terms of weather. A few days ago we were pushing 90 degrees, as of today we can’t even get above 60 degrees. The wind coming from the North also made it feel even colder. OK, yes it is a far sight better than what some are suffering through in the Northeast. I’m not complaining, just saying when you’re used to the 80’s and 90’s days like this are a wee bit uncomfortable.

But this is not going to last long. For a fact, by midweek our temperatures should be back up there to what we’re used to. Bottom line, it has been a really funny year in terms of the weather.

Since it was definitely not an outside day we decided to make it a playback day. We had any number of shows that we’ve recorded during the last week so what better time to watch them then today.

We watched a number of Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. Some NCIS and FBI. Even a couple of cooking shows. It was a great way to just pass the day and enjoy being together.

I also began to let myself dream again of where we might go next year once we get back to traveling.

As of now our big trip will be a cruise to Alaska. Of course that is if the cruise ships are actually sailing next year. Our trip is planned for May so we have our fingers crossed that it will actually happen.

After that who knows. I have some ideas of things we’d like to see. For instance, here are some things we are thinking of:

Sauder Village

The Henry Ford Museum

Sleeping Bears Dunes Lakeshore

Michigan’s UP

The Spam Museum

The Jolly Green Giant Museum

Wall Drugstore

Mt Rushmore

That’s just for starters. I’m still in the early stages of putting our list of sights to see together. Then, once it is done I’ll start making a route plan, and finally I’ll begin looking for RV parks and making reservations.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We sat back and just enjoyed the day. And we began to dream again of places and attractions we’d like to see.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!


  1. Those are some good plans! I have already started wondering if I should be making reservations for 2022. I’m not even sure what our plans would be. I do know we plan to watch “When Calls the Heart” on Hallmark tonight. We love that show! Enjoy your travel planning and your Sunday!


    1. That is one show we just cannot miss! As for making reservations, my experience has been “the sooner the better”. I’ve thrown 2021 sort of out the window but I’ve already begun to plan for 2022. I know by this June, which is the month we’ll hit the road in 2022, I know I’ll need to make reservations if I want to be able to get some decent sites.

  2. Enjoy planning your future trips. Hoping your weather improves.. We’re to be in the 60s this week which will be wonderful.. We made a few reservations for this year beginning with a local trip in April. May – 10 days to Margaritaville RV Resort, Lake Lanier, GA. June – 9 days at the Beach and 6 days Ohio. July- 6 days at Gettysburg. Looking forward to getting away but still be close enough for Mom to feel comfortable. Have a great week.
