Rainy Day in Georgia

We're finally getting our very much needed rain and I can see the grass growing as I speak :)  We've had about an inch so far and it's been light for the most part, so it should sink in and do some good.  I think it's supposed to rain most of the day.

Al wanted to go somewhere (anywhere) today but I think the weather is going to keep us home.  I think he wants a day off and he's not one to sit around and be lazy, so he wanted to get away from the house/work.  He feels guilty if he doesn't do something when he is home, so he always gets up and does something.  I, on the other hand, have absolutely no guilt and can be lazy with the best of them.

Yesterday was football day so Al spent some time watching the Bucs play.  They lost, so it wasn't a good day for him.  He worked up in the garage for a while and I worked inside the motor home.  I decided to go through everything and clean out non-essential items.  Some of the things we brought with us while on camping trips, just won't make the cut for full-timing or even longer trips.  I also have begun moving things to better locations.  I surveyed our two small closets, wondering how in the heck would we get all of our clothes and shoes in there?  We have way more shirts, and blouses than we need, but they are scattered between the 3 closets in the house, the rv, and storage boxes in the garage.  We need to get it all together so we can see what we actually have, and need and toss the rest.  That might be a good project for today.  See, that's why Al wants to go somewhere today!  I got all the drawers cleaned out in the bedroom and kitchen.  We had too many things inside that need to be in the basement.  The kitchen drawers had too many non kitchen items.  I plan to start bringing more things to the motor home.  Our trip to Florida for 2 1/2 months will be longer than we've ever stayed in the rv, so I'm going to need a few more kitchen things.

Last night I made home made pizza.  I tried something new, using garlic Alfredo sauce instead of regular pizza sauce.  I used some strips of buffalo chicken, onions, black olives, a few diced tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese.  I liked it for something different, but it wasn't Al's favorite.  Oh well!  I have discovered the type/brand of flour I use for the dough makes a big difference.

I just got a request to work on Al's laptop so that he can use it.  I need to take off a few thousand photos' so that it runs properly. I haven't gotten around to doing it because I'm trying to figure out how to do so with some kind of order.  My photos aren't organized well and I really need to work on both laptops to get some order.


  1. Trying to determine what you want to take with you and what will actually fit into the RV once you go full time must be hard. You are smart to be doing that early so once your home sells you will have most of the work done.

    Good Luck hope it sells soon so you can be on your way.

  2. Alfredo sauce on pizza? That's different, I'd never have thought of that! I don't have any problem with a down, lazy day once in a while either. Just might have one of those today as a matter of fact!

  3. I feel for your clothes situation!!
    Good luck. We have lots of storage in our bedroom in the house on wheels. I find rolling some things up..takes up less room.

    I make my own pizzas also..what flour are you using?

    I am glad you are getting some rain!

  4. I can guarantee you're going to take way too much stuff with you when you start out but within a year you'll start thinning it out and getting rid of stuff. That seems to be the way it works with everybody. Shoes and clothes were a biggie for me - I have gotten rid of at least half the stuff I started out with. Be sure to pay close attention to the weight and the distribution of that weight in your rig.

  5. Alfredo sauce on pizza is delish! We have a pizza joint up in Tumwater that puts that sauce on one of their specialties. They also have one they do with BBQ sauce and chicken. That is good too.

    Lazy is good once in a while! :)

  6. Ohhh let the sorting begin~!

    My poor mom was selling a house in Florida and stocking up a new motorhome too. But then she also had to pack enough stuff along in the motorhome's basement to stock a new house in Michigan. She soon didn't remember what she had where...

    And to top it all off, they got back another house they had sold on land contract in Florida, so she had to re-stock that one too as they decided to keep it afterall!

    So now she has four kitchens worth of stuff, four bathrooms, four bedrooms etc. and she is just totally LOST!
