More Christmas Decorations
Alternatives for Home Base
Gooooooood Morning World!
Oh what a beautiful day to wake up to. Thank you Lord for the warm morning sun and the clear blue sky. Thank you for a warm cup of coffee and a muffin. Thank you for the promise of a day full of wonder and delight. In spite of all it is still a great day to be alive.
Today the Wood Shop opened up. We had a meeting of all those who had joined the club. They have an impressive array of equipment to say the least. They started asking what each would like to do. Some said I make salad bowls and candle holders. Others said cutting boards and end tables. I didn’t have the heart to tell them the reason I joined was just so I could make two bottoms for our kitchen chairs!
I discovered a few more Christmas decorations.
Lately, probably due to COVID-19, we’ve been talking a lot about establishing a home base. We’ve considered Arizona but now Florida is back in the running. There is a lot to like about Arizona but I have to admit there is even more to like about Florida. Ms Barbara has established relationships with doctors that she likes. The VA is closer here than in Arizona. I’ve found shops in the area that I’m comfortable with in terms of service and repair for Elvira. Then, too, all our family is here on the east coast.
So today we did a little dreaming. They are building a park model section in the back that consists of modular homes and we decided to investigate what they had to offer. We both liked what we saw.
This was a two bedroom, two bath model.
It also had a carport and a storage shed. While we were there two more units were sold leaving only two more lots available in the current development. The question of course is, will they open up another section behind this one?
Well, we’re not ready to settle down quite yet but what they have to offer right now is very appealing. Time, and a lot more miles under our wheels, is in store for us before we do anything like this.
Yet, one thing has been sort of decided already. We’ll probably be back out here the end of 2021.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We spent it together our way hand in hand, traveling along, sing our song.
Thanks again for stopping by today. We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.
These are the voyages of Elvira and her 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!
