We had an uneventful travel day back to Georgia yesterday and arrived home about 5pm.
The weeds were not as high as I had imagined and the red clover was just starting to flower. We have a large patch of land that has turned into a clover field. It’s very pretty when it’s all blooming red but if you wait too long to mow it down, it’s very difficult. I was afraid of what I would find, but it was just starting. We usually don’t mow it for a while because it’s so pretty and fragrant. The butterflies love the clover so we’re helping them too.
The Wisteria and Spirea were in full bloom so unfortunately we’ve missed a little of the blooming season.
I can’t wait to get started mowing. We need to get some non-ethanol gas but first we have to empty the back of the truck enough to put some gas tanks :) Yep, we need a bigger motor home!
The golf cart, my Honda Crv and the well pump all started right up, so that was a relief. I had heard that if you turn off your well pump that you may have problems, so we were happy that it appears to be fine.
We were very surprised at how much stuff we had gotten rid of. I guess we had been working harder than we thought! We feel much better after we looked through the house and garage. Of course Al didn’t have the heart to open the shed yet and it was the one area that he had never really gotten to.
Living for three months in the motor home was a very good idea. We found out exactly what we have room for (nothing) and exactly what we need and will use. We now know that we don’t need nearly so many clothes. We learned that coats and jackets take up a lot of room and we don’t need so many. It’s it’s really cold you can layer clothes under your regular jacket. It was a very good thing to do as our trial run. We also seem to have lost some attachment to some of our “stuff” and I think it’ll be easier to get rid of it now. Taking an extended trip in your Rv before fulltiming is something I would highly recommend to others, if it’s possible.
Today, we will get some mower gas, get our mail resumed, rent a storage shed, and put some ads in the paper for garage sales. We’ll also work on getting some things photographed and listed on Craig’s list.
It’s going to be a busy few weeks.
