Zephyrhills, Florida (high 70 , low 61)
Yesterday we went to Outback and had a late lunch. Of course we went to the gym first, so we felt we “deserved” it!
It was a beautiful sunny day with lower temps and no humidity. It was wonderful.
Today it’s cool, cloudy and it rained for about 2 minutes. No problem….it can’t be perfect every day.
We have someone coming over later to give us an estimate for replacing the carpet in the motor home. I expect his price to be way too expensive, but we thought we’d check it out, just to see. I really want the carpet done, but I really don’t want us to have to do it!
Another possible upgrade for sometime in the future is MCD Shades. Our motor home came with the old day/night shades. We haven’t had any problems with broken strings yet (knock on wood), but they get dusty, attract cat hair and don’t give as much privacy as the MCD shades. I think we can install them ourselves, which would save a lot of money. Anyway, it’s something to think about. It looks like it would cost about $270 each for the main living/kitchen windows and a little less for the bedroom windows. I estimated about $1250 for the main windows. That doesn’t include the front windshield or the front door.
The only think I don’t like about the MCD shades is the black “day shade.” I think a nice beige would look nicer inside. I’m not so sure how the beige would look from outside, but it doesn’t matter because they only make the day shades in black fabric.
So….something more to think about.
It’s only a little over 3 weeks until we leave here and head back down to the Keys. We’re hoping my Mom and Brother won’t have any other health issues, and we’ll be able to go. We are both getting a good case of hitch-itch, and we’ve only been here about 6 weeks.
How about all you other snowbirds? When do you head north? It seems like most people around here wait until the first of April. It will be nice to be able to travel around this state and have nice empty campgrounds!
