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
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.
