Winter is fast approaching so yesterday we made the move into our friend Bev’s apartment here in Penticton.   We are just a couple corners away from Karen’s and looking out the window I can see her big trees.  I think we’ll actually be able to see the motor home from our window when we park it along her driveway.

Our motor home made no claims to be warm in the winter and since we can’t go to Arizona this year, we had to move inside.  So nice to have such great friends!  We will have to go soon and dump the tanks for the last time then figure out how to winterize the motor home.  This will be our eleventh year with the motorhome and we’ve never had to winterize it.

It was pretty amazing how much stuff we removed from the motor home that we deemed necessary to have in the apartment.  I made quite a few trips with the car and not quite done yet.  I managed to wrestle my big printer down from its home in the TV cabinet in the motorhome but I will need some help to get it out the door.  Not only is it heavy, it’s large and awkward to get through the narrow door and down the steps.  It can’t stay in the motorhome and get frozen either.

Our house plans are progressing at a snail’s pace.  The plan gets sent back to the drafts person and takes two weeks to come back.  Then all the specified changes weren’t made so back it goes again.  Grrr!  I think we are pretty close to giving the go sign if they could get the changes made.

I think these are Sandhill Cranes.  Flock after flock went by one morning.

I happened to go in the house one evening when Karen and Bev were having sushi and noticed that Sydney cat had joined them.

I've been in gathering mode lately.  Walnuts on the left are from Karen's trees and the filberts are from around the neighbourhood.

The begonias in Karen's hanging pots are still looking fine

We were up to Salmon Arm the other day for Aileen's dentist appointment and I wandered down to the waterfront.
