Catching Up

I spent yesterday afternoon catching up on the blogs I follow. Because I’m so far behind I didn’t leave any comments, which I’ll do now.

For Levonne at A Camp Host Housewife’s Meanderings: An RV Adventure…I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your friend Victor.  I imagine there’s a huge void that he once filled and it’ll take awhile for it heal.  

About the small houses you and your husband looked at at Ocean Dunes.  I know them as Park Models and I lived in one for about three months in Tucson.  They do have all that is needed, space wise.  I like the ones with the loft, even if they aren’t tall enough to stand up in.  I think that the loft gives the perception that it’s larger than it actually is and that's ok.  I also love the front porch.  I would love to have a house with a front porch.  Cavco is the manufacturer that I’m drawn to. I might have to check that place out, but I seem to recall something about street noise.  I have that now and don’t want it anymore. 

For Barbara at Me and My Dog:  Congratulations on your 100th post!  I really enjoy your blog and I look forward to the next 100 posts.  The pictures of your grandson’s birthday cake and the Christmas fudge made my mouth water.  Unfortunately, I have to avoid sugar so I’m not eating any Christmas goodies.  While I sometimes feel deprived, to eat sugar would lead me back down the road to weight gain and I’m not going there.  One bite of sugar and I’m off…kind of like an alcoholic...only with sugar. 

Your post on the “Magic Carpet Ride” compels me to show this sculpture in one of my favorites parks on Lake Washington.  It, too, gets dressed up for various occasions and I enjoy seeing how they're dressed.  This was around Christmas last year.  FYI...the large buildings in the back are part of the Boeing Renton plant.  The buildings I used to work in are gone now and part of a shopping area called The Landing.

For Kimbopolo at The Travels of Kimbopolo:  I went online to my library and put a hold on the book A Journey of One’s Own, by Thalia Zapatos, that you recommended.  There aren’t any other holds on it so I hope to be able to pick it up soon.  Hopefully, before Christmas.  I’ll report back after I read it and let you what I thought of it.

To the rest of you…I enjoyed all your posts and I’m glad to be back where it feels right.  I hadn’t realized how much I was missing reading about your adventures…in other words…I was feeling lost and directionless. 

I agree with all the comments that were left on yesterday's post and I thank you for your comments.  I don't know what the rush is because there really isn't one.  I would like to get started on something though because I kind of feel like I'm just vegging now and I'm not liking that.  Until I have an RV and want to go somewhere I think I need to go somewhere other than Tucson for awhile.  I know Tucson inside and out and it's probably time to expand my horizons.  Hmmm, I think that's what RVing is about.  I would like to go to Hawaii and enjoy the tropics for awhile so maybe that will be my next trip.  

More sunshine please,



  1. You could also rent an RV in Hawaii. Lots of people rent RV's and travel the islands.

  2. Hey Jeana,

    I always consider it the ultimate compliment when someone actually reads a book I recommend. I predict that particular one may be of service to you at this time of Big Decisions. I hope so ...


  3. We rented an RV n New Zealand. It was hard to drive on the wrong side of the road, drive a stick shift diesel, and have to make the bed out of the table each night, but the adventure was great. The only way to go!

    Rent one in Hawaii by all means.

  4. go where you heart takes you! day you will figure it all out!
