Yes! We're finally going to be on our way to see family the day after tomorrow. We're driving to Omaha, Nebraska. Dennis is going to try to get off of work an hour or so early so we can get about 5 hours drive time in on Wednesday, stopping for the night around 10:00 p.m. in Whitehall, MT if all goes as planned. Then on to Omaha over the next two days. We'll have to make lots of stops for me to get out and walk around to stretch my back, but it will be worth it to see all of our family and PIPER!! Yes, Mandy and Brad drove 23 1/2 hours straight through on Friday from Maryland to Omaha, so they're already at Grandma's waiting for us. They have already put an offer in on a house and had it accepted over the weekend, so I know they're hoping to move in very soon and begin this new phase of their lives. I'm so excited for them and for us to see them! It's been way too long.
Ellen is staying at our house with Chloe. She loves her almost as much as we do so no worries on that front. She'll take care of the house and our baby! :-)
I have lots and lots and lots of pictures for you today. I promised photos of the curtains we made for the trailer so here you go! This is the dinette area with the curtains open. I've done a bit of redecorating since I took this photo on Thursday. The angel I showed you in my last post is now hanging below the clock and the clock has been moved higher. My Instant Pot has a new home and I have some photos on the drawer unit.
We took a new loveseat to the trailert a few weeks ago and it's been a big hit with all of our visitors. On the wall is a cross stitch that says "The Queen's Corner of the World". I made it about 30 years ago!
Here is the back of the trailer with Dennis' and my Lazyboy recliners.
The hallway. You can see I have angels everywhere. People know I like them and I get them as gifts. That's the refrigerator on the right.
The bedroom with a quilt I made a few years ago from leftover fabric. Please ignore the not very good job of pillow smoothing. It's hard to lean back in there with my back issues.
The kitchen area. We didn't make curtains for this window because it has nice mini-blinds and they would just get dirty quickly.
I hope you enjoyed the little camper tour. I just realized I forgot bathroom photos. Oops. It does have a shower, sink and toilet and it's nice sized as well. We love our little home away from home and the new curtains make it extra cozy at night when they are shut tight. It also seems to keep it cooler inside when the sun is beating down.
This next picture is one I took while taking Chloe for a walk Friday morning. I was awed by how blue the sky is next to the pine trees. That morning the pine smell was so strong. Days like that I remember just how much I love the Pacific Northwest and all of it's beauty.
A few more angels and a flower pot on our doorstep. Dennis made these wonderful stairs for us and several other people at the lake. Much, much better than trailer steps.
We are fighting these brown spots this year because of the voles. They keep digging up the grassy area.
Stairs Lori, Paul and Dennis built to the lower area behind our trailers. We can use that too but have not developed it at all.
We have had some absolutely gorgeous weather. The park and beach looked like the 4th of July yesterday. It was SO busy at the beach.
I've called a time-out on my beaded shawl until we return from our trip. I was off one stitch and had to rip back 6 rows to get back on track. Doesn't sound bad until you realize that there were over 480 stitches in each row. And it was lace. And beads. Enough said.
It is pretty though and I know I'll like it when it's done. I just don't want to be chasing beads around in the truck. So I'll work on baby sweaters, socks and mittens on the drive.
One last photo of my lavender blooming at home this morning. It's grown from a 6 inch plant to over 4 foot in diameter in 4 years! I'm going to have to divide it soon. Any tips?
I'm sure this is way too long. If I still have anyone here, thanks for hanging in there with me! I won't be able to post while were gone, so I'll plan to do that once we're back home. Be prepared for Piper photos! Thank you for the tips on Word Press. I think that will be my next project. Switching over this blog so I can post while away from home.
I hope you are all having a lovely summer, (or winter if that's where you live.) I'm going to see my girls in a few days! I'm SO excited. Can you tell?
"For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations." Psalm 100:5
I'll be back soon!
