This image says it all! As much of the country is gripped in cold, rain and snow, I hope most of you are where it’s warm and sunny! We are still in the Seattle area so for the most part it is cloudy and rainy however we had about 3 inches of snow earlier in the week. Not excited about being in this weather in the winter but love being here to spend the holidays with our kids and grandkids! What a wonderful life it is. Last year we stayed in southern California and two of our three kids we able to come down for Christmas which was something different and fun. Certainly one of the great things about living in an RV is following the warm weather in the winter and cool weather in the summer.
Can you believe there are only 14 days until Christmas? I hope you are all ready for whatever celebrating Christmas means to you. In most places you can find lots of activities to create new memories if you are not with your family. Check out bazaars, concerts, church and school programs, lighting ceremonies and neighborhoods that are lit for the season, visiting folks in Assisted Living facilities, etc. We have been doing lots of those kinds of things with our dear friends Marilu and John who are also spending the winter in Seattle. Marilu and I made a bunch of these “Sock Snowmen” and delivered them to “forgotten seniors” in an Assisted Living facility in the area. We spent a fun afternoon together making and delivering them. Here are the directions. http://sumo.ly/3Q5Z.
Great Tip: When we were in southern California last year I found a couple of sites where you can put in the area you are staying in and find Christmas light displays. We found some gorgeous neighborhoods in the area last year and I also found some up here this year. http://www.christmaslightfinder.com/ and http://find.mapmuse.com/interest/xmas-displays.
Great Tip from Marilu: Simple Sock Trick to stop your windows from fogging up. We have trouble with our windows in the RV fogging up and sure will try this tip. http://theheartysoul.com/fix-foggy-window-cat-litter/?t=SNJV. Do any of you have this problem and what do you do to keep the moisture at bay? We have fans going and a small dehumidifer and we really have to manage it carefully. This winter we have added a couple of the DampRid containers of little moisture pellets so we’ll see if they help. We also watch the window sills to make sure there is no mold building up. Would love to hear from you on what you do to control this issue.
Do you decorate your RV for Christmas? If so do you decorate both inside and out? We only decorate the front of the MH as we have one of those little tables that fits over the steering wheel. All our decorations are flat and easy to store. We’d love to share your photos if you send them to us at email@example.com.
A Tip from a Customer and Jillee. Use a cutting board on top of your burners (make sure they are turned off and cool) as additional counter space. This came to me from a customer who found a beautiful wooden cutting board the same size as the cooktop in her RV. She had her husband install handles on either endso she can also use it as a serving tray. I had totally forgotten this wonderful tip from Peggy (thanks Peggy) until this came the other day from Jillee. This is a great idea also and you could certainly modify a larger board with feet. http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/how-to-modify-a-cutting-board-for-more-counter-space?
