Feeling like fall

Heartland Campground
Campbellsville, KY

It's definitely fall trending to winter here in Kentucky.
We've been running the fireplace at night, and the electric heater
in the bedroom cycles on and off during our sleep.
This morning we woke to 33 degrees, so George even turned
on our furnace to get it toasty.
We still walk to work in shorts and hoodies,
because it's very warm in the plant!

This past week of 5 days (one overtime day) was pretty busy.
We're starting to pick items like toys, Christmas sweaters (ugly and regular!),
People are starting their Christmas shopping for sure.
This FC is approximately 75% apparel now,
and we seem to pick a lot of socks, underwear, and tee shirts.

Amazon very graciously provides a Thanksgiving meal every year,
and actually to make sure all shifts are covered,
they serve it twice in the week.
Ours was on Monday, but since our overtime day was yesterday,
we got another one :-)

The food is pretty good, with a slice of ham & turkey,
mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans,
stuffing casserole, a roll, and a piece of pecan or pumpkin pie.
Of course with a bigger lunch than usual,
we're all a bit sleepy for the second half of the day :-)

George and I are still doing a lot of walking.
We've averaged daily miles of around 12.
This week's total for me was 58.62 miles!

Today is laundry day and getting a much needed pedicure with friends!
We're starting to research our summer plans,
possibly a gig in South Dakota, we'll see.

We're ready to move on!


  1. I might be able to lose some weight if I worked there! :) Glad to hear y'all are doing well!

  2. Wow girl, that's a lot of miles! Sure is nice of Amazon to feed their employees, I bet you all feel appreciated!

  3. It will be 35 here tomorrow, so it is definitely cold for FL:(

  4. 5 weeks! We can do week until Black Friday!

  5. At 12 miles a day you could be a long distance hiker. Seems like clothing would be more boring than a full gamut of things people buy. I always thought I'd find that part of Amazon interesting, seeing what people buy. 12 miles a day on my feet 5 or 6 days in a row, not so much.

  6. Stay warm. Hopefully the weeks will go fast. We will be in Custer again for Aug & Sept next year.

  7. With all that walking, you could eat a Thanksgiving dinner every meal! ;c)

    Good thing you're looking at South Dakota in the summer, they just got a 17" snowfall! :cO
