A GREAT BLUE HERON LIFTS OFF FROM THE GOOSE POND THIS AFTERNOON
We spent more time buzzing about like a couple little bees in the Winnie Wagon this morning. Slide out, dining room table up, a few more things moved in, overhead cab bed re-configured, hooks installed to hang things on, & a re-shuffling of bin articles…..again. And by golly I even washed Winnie’s wheels & cab. Not usually something I expend a lot of energy on anymore but when the spirit moves me to do something like that I had better go with it while that wily spirit is in the process of moving me. Had to slip up to Goderich this afternoon for a few things & be darned if I didn’t even head over to the car wash & do the Jeep too. Heavens to Murgatroyds!!
THAT BUNK LADDER TAKES A LITTLE GETTING USED TO
THAT’S OUR LITTLE EASY TO ASSEMBLE DINING ROOM TABLE
Its turning out to be quite a challenge re-thinking our packing habits with the Winnebago. Coming from a Class A with a full basement holding about 10 spacious bins down to a Class C with about a quarter the storage space is proving to be quite a feat. We always did travel with too much stuff of course but I think that's the way it is with most RV folks. If one has lots of space one has a tendency to fill it. And then there is the smaller interior with fewer cabinets, drawers, & closets. We are having to do a lot of creative re-thinking. But how nice to have a mind occupying challenge going on again.
PHEEBS REMINDED ME TONIGHT THAT I HAD FORGOT TO PUT HER PICTURE IN THURSDAY NIGHT’S POST
HOOKED UP IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE THURSDAY
Kelly spotted a house on an acre of property while browsing a local real estate site this morning. Wasn’t far from us, price seemed reasonable for the location, & the few photos looked nice. Hopped in the Jeep & off we went to a little place about 20 minutes away called Ben Miller. Really nice scenic area near the banks of the Maitland River. Great piece of property with house & barn & we got ourselves a little excited about it after walking around looking at everything. House was vacant so could only peer through the windows. With a few outside landscape renovations (mainly some fencing) we could easily see ourselves living there. Back home we went & Kelly phoned the Realtor with some additional questions. Oooooooops, a misprint in the on-line price had listed it a full $100,0000 less than it’s asking price. A typing error had priced it at $129,000 when in fact it should have read $229,000. Awwwww nuts!!!! That sure took care of all the excitement we had built up right quick. The fella told Kelly, “no wonder we were getting so many calls about that house & property today”. Positive side to today’s real estate mis-print was the simple fact we were both invigorated & energized by simply getting out again & looking at a house & property for sale. I like when that happens……………………..:))
WOULD HAVE BEEN OUR KINDA PLACE ALRIGHT
WE COULD SEE THROUGH THE WINDOWS A NICE RENOVATION JOB ON THE INTERIOR HAD BEEN DONE & THAT SECOND STORY IS A COMPLETE GRANNY FLAT
INTERIOR OF THE BARN HAD BEEN RENOVATED NICELY TOO
YEP, THIS HOUSE & OLD BARN SITTING ON AN ACRE OF PROPERTY IN BEN MILLER SURE HAD US EXCITED FOR ABOUT AN HOUR TODAY
Last week I mentioned we were thinking about doing some renovations with our 2 bedrooms here at home. After mulling that around for awhile we have decided to put those renovations on hold. Maybe next Spring after we return from the South-West. There was a positive outcome to our renovation thinking though. We did go ahead & get rid of some junk & came up with some new ideas on how to deal with some other stuff. My digitalizing of slides project grew out of those renovation thoughts.
