The first month is over.

I can't believe that it has been over a month since we left Pa. We moved out of a 5 bedroom 2500 sq foot home to a 5th wheel.  The strangest thing is that we hardly notice the difference.  I guess we really didn't use that much of the big house we lived in. 

It has been strange to know we don't have a stick and brick house anymore and that everything is here.  It is wonderful to know each day as we get up we are free to say "what are we going to do today?" but it is also scary to not have the structure of a day to day routine.  It is relaxing to know that if we just want to do nothing we can and not feel as if we are "wasting" our days off.  When we were working we always felt as if we had to cram as much into the days off as we could and we just wouldn't dream of wasting them by doing nothing at all.  I am sure eventually we will get used to the routine of no routine. 

We are still camping in St John at my sisters place.  It has been wonderful to just spend time with her.  It seems that we really haven't had a lot of time together since we grew up. For the past 2 weeks my parents have also been parked in their back yard.  We have been building 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in their basement.  What a lot of work.  It has been a lot of laughs also, especially dealing with the plumbing part of things. 

Last week we went up Moncton to take my daughter out to dinner for her birthday.  We went to a vegetarian restaurant (the name escapes me at the moment) but the food was great.  Didn't miss meat at all. 

We have taken a day trip into Nova Scotia and went to Peggy's Cove on a picture taking excursion.  It was foggy and rainy but the pictures came out great.  As soon as I get them from my net book to my laptop I will post some of them. 

We have been enjoying ourselves just living one day at a time.  I have had time to take up embroidery again and have dug out my sewing machine.

We are having fun planning future destinations and then discarding them to plan something else.  The best part is knowing we can do what we want when we want.  

Right now we are getting hitch itch and it is time to lift the jacks and move on.  I think that is going to happen tomorrow. 

Here we are camped in her back yard. 

Before heading out on a ride Deb works Spirit to use up some of her energy.  They still have more work to do on the ring but they are getting a good setup here for the horses.

Even the dogs are getting to run off their energy. Troy and Shayla with their "country cousin" L. E.  There is a small pond just out of sight and they often run up for a quick swim.  At least LE and Shayla do.  Troy is a big chicken and won't get in. 

It is getting late and time for bed.  Nite everyone and see you soon somewhere down the road.
