Watching | Old movies
> Our wifi is practically non-existent at the moment, so streaming isn't possible, leaving us with our own library of movies we have on a hard drive. We have over a thousand movies, but they all begin to look the same after a while and we are looking forward to getting to an RV park that has decent wifi.
Reading | Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley.
> I finished Gone with the Wind. It wasn't a quick read but between waiting for Mr. Misadventures for hours while he photographed wildlife in Yellowstone and our first few days of waiting in Red Bay, I had plenty of time to get through this 1000+ page novel. The last time I read it was five years ago. Each time I re-read it, I see something new. Last month I said I didn't love Ruth's Journey, but I actually now really appreciate all the backstory it provided while reading GWTW and even Scarlett. Rhett Butler's People will be up next to complete the series.
Working On | Our route.
> We are planning the upcoming weeks until the end of the year through February when we return to Portland, Oregon.
Feeling | Heartbroken.
> The departure of Jessica has left me distraught. At the moment I am not motivated to do much while I try to heal a little.
Planning | Looking for a job.
> As February approaches and reality sets in, the job search must begin. I will have to dust off the resume and start putting out feelers for a new job.
Loving | Distractions.
> At the moment, I need to keep my mind busy or I will wallow in my sadness. The Presidential election provides adequate fodder for that and Mr. Misadventures and I have CNN on constantly.
My Favorite Photo | Jessica outside.
> It was so cool to let Jessica outside to enjoy the grass and I wish I had tried out her harness leash sooner.
What is CURRENTLY going on with you?

I love this photo of Jessica – she looks so happy. Try not to feel bad that you didn’t do that sooner. She knew you loved her immensely.
@Katie, I keep looking at this picture because it was just a few days before she was gone. She really had a great time in the grass.
Nothing much is going on with me. I’m sure you’ll land a job right away after mentioning this blog in your resume.
So sorry about Jessica- that is one of the hardest things to deal with. I’m sure she knew how much you adored her. Take your time to heal- you deserve that much. xo
@Starla, thank you so much, it’s been tough, but the days are getting better!
My whole family loves watching old movies. We especially love when they come on Turner Classic Movies. My mom introduced me to so many favorites, especially with Katharine Hepburn. I fell in love with Rita Hayworth movies by accident. My dad got me into Abbott and Costello. We all love when they do theme movies for the holidays or by actors.
@Amy, those old movies are simply the best!
Wow..I have great empathy about Jessica, and can’t believe our similarities in books and old movies…I subscribe to TCM just to see some of the oldies again, I never started a library..which I now regret
@Ronald, oldies but goodies!
Sending you and Mr Adventures love and plenty of good karma coming your way on the road.
I am currently reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. And currently writing my novel. I finally came up with an idea that gets me excited enough to keep writing and exploring for NaNoWriMo!
@Murissa, thank you for the karma, I’ll take it. I am so impressed with you, every year you diligently do the NaNoWriMo, it’s so awesome to see!
