The Transformation Continues – Settling In and Making It Our Home
So my cold lingers on. I’ve got a cough, a sore throat and I feel like, well, suffice to say I feel like crap. I have no energy, no desire to move any further than my recliner. Yet, I continue to push myself and try to accomplish at least something small every day.
From the beginning I’ve had a problem with the hood that gives access to the generator. I’ve finally got it to open on a regular basis. The prop rod, though, that is supposed to hold the hood open got bent and now keeps getting jammed when you try to open the hood. Solution? Get rid of the prop rod! It’s not like I need to get in there every day. When I do I’ll find something to hold the hood open.
The situation was the same with the back engine access cover. I was able, though, to straighten the prop rod on this cover so left it in place.
we’ve started making Elvira our own by putting out our unique signs and
hanging pictures Amanda has painted for us in the past
as well as some she has purchased for us and
we’ve found places for our huge collection of stuffed animals.
Finally we can walk from front to back without tripping over bags of stuff. Barbara has her kitchen set up. I have a place for my computer. We have our recliners in place. It’s beginning to feel like home which is truly a great feeling.
We have two more major projects to complete: installation of our new satellite antenna and the installation of our residential refrigerator. Both are scheduled to be completed within the next two to three weeks.
We’re getting there, project by project anything is a cinch.
So another beautiful day on The Road of Retirement draws to a close. Time now to watch Nick Wallenda walk across an active volcano. Definitely something I would never, ever want to try. Even if I could walk on a tightrope. My prayers are with him and his wife.
These are the voyages of Elvira and it’s two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before
See you on down the road!
