It’s 51 degrees this morning…the coolest morning yet. Our night time temps are about 15 degrees below normal and the daytime temps are about 5-7 degrees below normal. Gotta enjoy it while we can, as the temps will be back in the 80’s by the end of the week.
We spent Saturday at the rental house trying to finish things up.
Al installed the new range hood with a little help from me. Things never are as easy as you think they will be, and it took longer than expected.
We did some more raking, and damned it I didn’t end up trimming another Crape Myrtle tree. We had dozens of them in Georgia and I thought I had trimmed my last Myrtle. Unfortunately the one at the rental house was in need of a trim, so…..
Our new tenant came by again to show her children the house. I was very impressed with those kids. They were clean-cut and very well mannered. They were so excited about their new home and their new rooms. Most kids that age would be complaining about leaving all their friends. They went through a tough time during her divorce and I think this house will be good for them. The little girl was so excited about having a yard where she could garden. I feel very good about our new tenant. I think she will take care of our house and treat it with love. She was thrilled with the new appliances and kept thanking me for letting her rent the house. We have a property management company that handles the rent and takes care of any repairs that are needed. I think we will be a little more involved in the repairs this time, now that we are back in Florida.
We intended to get the motor home ready for travel last night when we left the rental house, but we were both so tired, we kind of fizzled out.
So, we’re leaving today, but still haven’t exactly decided where we’ll be parking tonight. Somewhere up the road a few miles north, I guess. We’ll be driving on interstate 75. This would be a perfect time for me to practice driving the motorhome. I could drive from one rest area to the other. Will I do it? Maybe…if I’m brave enough! Or if Al is brave enough! I have only driven it in a deserted campground, never on a highway or in traffic. Traffic should be minimal today. We’ll see.
