Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! 

My computer would not let me do any photos earlier, so I had to leave for dinner at a friends house. 

When I got back, I was able to get the photo done. 

LOVE my new camera! 

On the homefront here, or would that be the steps of an RV front door? Not much going on with me right now. 

Have one more day of therapy coming up on Monday, then that ends the 2nd round of my therapy. Doc isn't happy with my lack of progress (not anyone's fault, my foot just isn't that strong yet), so he's ordered another round. Here we go again! But I am thankful because it could be so much worse. 

I hope all is well with everyone! 

I am grateful for ya'll - your great blogs. Your great knowledge. Your great photos. Your great RV trips. 
And the wonderful kinship that we all share. 
RVers are a very special group of folks!

So again, Happy Thanksgiving!

I am a sicko

Ugh. I'm sick.

I think it's a sinus infection or a weird cold.

No fever, light muscle ache. light headache. Dizzy and my ears are ringing. they might be ringing from me coughing so much and blowing my nose too much.

Who knows.

had to cancel my therapy today and will again tomorrow.

Bummer, that sets me back another week. but I'm sure they would rather I stay back in my tiny little home instead.

I've always said, it's nice to recoup in the motorhome.

I'll check in with ya'll tomorrow.

have my electric blankey on...nite ya'll...

Sleep well.

Redid the color on the Motorhome

OK, this gives the RV more of the tan color I'm looking for. 

And it's not permanent. It can always be peeled back off. 

In fact, I could change the color every year if I wish to do so! 

At least it's not yellow looking anymore. 

And I thank all of you on your input! Blue was the definite winner, but I kind of wanted to try something different. 

Again, I can peel it off & go back to blue if this doesn't work for me once I do the job.

Anything is better than the old, faded, crackled decals! My brother actually thought I did a crackle finish to them -- um...could I use that excuse instead of painting them?? ;-) 

So here was what the photo program did & turned it more yellow than tan. I actually got one vote on the yellow from a friend! She thought it was bright & cheery. 

Below is the tan I'm thinking of:

Or............I could go crazy. Leave the decals blue & go for a gray body!! haha! 
Thought this was kind of cool looking, but it also looks like winter doesn't it?

Now all I need is some time for this project! Won't be happening this week. All I have to do to prepare her is wash her & tape off the areas to protect the paint from getting on. Even if the paint does get on the other areas, it's still fine because I can peel it off. 

It will be interesting to see how it holds out too. So far, it looks  good on my friends hub caps! He did his about a month ago. 

~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~

Opinions wanted on Painting Ellie's Decals

Hi Everyone, 

As you know, Ellie, my motorhome is getting up there in years, but not in mileage since we sit so much!

Ever since I bought her, her decals were cracked, faded & well, not attractive. 

I heard about spray paint that is rubberized. You spray it on & it sticks well. If you don't like it, you can simply peel it off. 

I heard of this from a guy that did his hubcaps & that paint looks great on them! 

So I thought this could be an easy solution for Ellie! 

I did a mock up photo. I really want to paint in tan, but I could not get the color right on my color chart, so it looks yellow. 

But I plan on doing tan, with a little bit of red accent. The black striping oddly has not faded, so it can stay as is. 

Let me know what ya'll think please. 

Before & current photo:

Repainted image - it turned yellow, but I want tan. 

So what do ya'll think? I think the tan will brighten her up a little & the red is subtle, yet a bit of an accent.
