I haven't been blogging too much because it seems every day is just more packing, stowing, storing, donating and disposing. And, we've had an unusually hot couple of weeks, which hasn't been any help at all.
This morning I woke up on Judy and Bob's ranch to these wonderful views from Miss Flair .....
Horses grazing right next to the RV - that's Mindy in the foreground and Pollyanna further back. Bob and Judy are avid horse people and these beautiful quarter are the results of their care and love.
This is one of their five llamas (pronounced ya-mas) eating leaves from the weeping willow tree at the side of one of the ponds on the property. I took this photo at about 6:30AM; the other llamas seemed to all be lying down - still. If I remember correctly, this is 'Geronimo.'
Judy and I drove over to my house early; she drove the ranch truck for more loading of Goodwill and storage stuff. We worked very diligently for about four hours, and got almost everything either to storage, the RV, Goodwill or the dumpster; then we totally wilted because of the heat - only bout 97 degrees while we were working. The house is empty save for some little "stuff" that needs mainly to go in the garbage; and, it certainly needs to be vacuumed and spiffed up.
I am so tired of this project; all this storage of belongings may be for naught; if I truly love the RV lifestyle, I'll never have room for reclaiming the stuff! I've even decided I'm going to gradually whittle down that which I felt I "have to have" in the RV. This is probably the most disenchanted I've ever been with STUFF. Ugh!
Jennifer and Jason, the renters, started moving some things into the house today; they're very excited and I'm happy to have them there. I think this may be a win-win situation. [I've still not received any of the rent owed by the previous renters - I suspect they've forgotten all about owing it!]
I'm exhausted right now, but do want to share some of my "learning experiences with regards to the RV; I'm on a steep learning curve." More about that in the next blog.
