Our in between life



We continue to adjust to a life away from  full time RV travel that we enjoyed so much.  That is not to say that we are not enjoying our new normal, for we are.  Never the less, there is still some adjustments that need to be made.  Since our last RV trip we have engaged in any number of activities for our new normal.

First and foremost, we have had lots of time to enjoy our granddaughter, Victoria.  I suppose there is some downside to spending time with these small and energetic creatures, for me that is mostly realizing that I am getting old and it is hard to keep up with her!  For the rest , there is lots of fun, like introducing her to Santa Claus, Halloween outings, getting her to wash my car.  Perhaps the best of all is just hanging out with someone who finds everything new and interesting.











Then there is the true reminders that I am living in a sticks and bricks.  Nothing says permanent more than having to put together a big grill that has a 25 year guarantee. If only, I could get the same warranty for myself.  Another new project is making our own doggie treats without any additives, luckily Halley seems to enjoy them. 



Part of our duties for the RV club we have recently  joined, was  to find an RV park for our monthly campout. We found a nice,  new place in Freeport. It is close to the town of Seaside, which was one of the first towns built in the style of New Urbanism. Every home is colorful and there is a varied style to be seen from many different ages of design.  What makes it most notable is the fact that the movie "The Truman Show" was set in the village.  You can still recognize scenes from the movie from just walking around the town. 







I have no intention of getting into politics, but being in one place allowed us to plan to attend the Romney/Ryan rally in Pensacola, FL yesterday.  I will only say that this is the first political rally I have attended in 65 years!



Tomorrow we pull the RV out of storage for a week trip including the Good Sam rally at the Daytona Speedway.

Your granddaughter is a really beauty.

Never have and never will attend a political rally no matter what party.

Hmm, granddaughter washing your car. You've given me an idea. I've got six grandkids, if I get them all together maybe they'll wash my motorhome...

Looks like you're settling in nicely to your new stix-n-brix while having a good balance with your RV travels.

Life is good, especially with an new grill...

Good that you are training Victoria early to wash your car. :)

Phyllis said...

What a nice area you've settled in. We would have attended those Rally's with you. Both the political AND the Good Sams.

I remember when the kids were little and loved to help wash the car. By the time they were old enough to actually do a decent job, they no longer had any interest! Take advantage of Victoria now. It'll be short-lived :)

Wouldn't it be great if we could harvest some of the energy the youngsters have and use it when we are in need of a boost?

Elaine said...

Judy and I went to the Ryan event in Ocala recently. This may just be the most important election in of the last 65 yrs or longer. I am looking forward to voting next week.

Enjoy the "New Normal"!

Your granddaughter is a real cutie, she will probably be traveling with you sooner than you think.

transitions can be hard! But it looks like you have it well in hand.
