We’re continuing to get ourselves established in the new house.  Disposing of unneeded items is a bit of a hurdle but we’re making progress.  We were up to Salmon Arm last Monday and brought home the car full and the trailer loaded.  There is a lot of stuff still in that storage shed that will have to find a new home.  I still have most of my backpacking gear which I won’t ever use again and tools and supplies that we won’t have room for here.  We’re thinking of taking the motor home up there in a while and going through everything and then trying to have a yard sale.  It is a bit of an adventure opening boxes we packed almost thirteen years ago!

We continue to get the bugs worked out here and the other day the electrician came and replaced six faulty breakers in the main electrical panel.   We were getting pretty frustrated with the washing machine and microwave tripping the switch partway through their cycle.  We may be getting close to something done on the floor issue which had a lot of scuff marks and a cut when we took possession.

We had two cabinet beds delivered yesterday.  We got a fairly good deal on two floor models and so far are pleased with them.  Our table and chairs are late July for arrival, last I heard.  No lack of projects to work on with the landscaping going to be a long term project, depending on how hot it gets.  Right now it is fairly cool so I get out and work at it a couple times a day.  Just don’t seem to be able to do what I used to, for some reason.  I bought an electronic keypad for one of the doors so we don’t have to carry keys all the time.  And, I bought a BBQ in the box which will need assembly.

We were pleasantly surprised when the guy in charge of the RV parking came and said he had a spot for the motor home.  I thought we’d be on a waiting list for some time so that was a bonus.  I ordered landscape fabric online this evening so hope it comes soon so we can continue with the project.  There is more prep work we can do while we’re waiting.

Aileen is back to her regular walking schedule.  I join her after supper and sometimes go for a walk after breakfast.  When things slow down a bit we will have to get back to geocaching.  I have a spot in mind to set out a series of caches but it will take some time to get it done.
