Murdo Girl…Washing clothes without quarters

I was exchanging comments with a friend yesterday and she said, “You just as well take some pictures of the last 150 miles of your travels.” I’ve become fascinated with taking pictures from SeeYa’s window, and then looking through them to find some that intrigue me.

The morning went from rainy to sunny and then it clouded up again.

We were curious about what the animals would do after being away from home for six weeks.

The cat went outside as soon as we opened the doggie door. It was the first time she was allowed outdoors since we left. She was so good about not trying to get out of the RV. She loves to be outside.

The dogs didn’t want out. They were stressed and didn’t want Kip to get out of their sight.

Sammie even howled once. That is Cyndie looking stressed. No more new yards to sniff out.

The house actually looked neat and clean when we got here. That changed quickly when we unloaded the motor home. We’re slowly getting everything put away. In the RV, you have to lift up on the drawers and maneuver them to pull them out. That’s so they don’t open when your traveling down bumpy roads. You have to shut the cabinet doors hard, too. It takes me a few days not to do that when I get home. Kip winces when he hears me slamming everything shut. I’m on the third load of laundry and I’m still trying to find where to put the quarters in the machines.

It was nice not to have to call ahead for a place to stay and I’m sure Kip enjoyed not having to hook up the water, sewer and electricity… though we have gotten pretty proficient at all of that plus hooking up the tow car. We unhooked in the Brookshire’s parking lot.

No one wanted to go to the store so we ate the only thing we could scrounge up for dinner…two chicken pot pies. Kip had one of the two remaining bear claws, still in the RV freezer, for dessert.

It’s good to be home. I will say this…Our tiny house feels like a HUGH mansion!

    Why did you unhook in the Brookshire’s parking lot? Great title for your post….

      It’s pretty flat and has more room to maneuver than in the neighborhood.

        But surely you couldn’t leave it there? How did you get it to its storage spot?

        But if you unhitch it in a parking lot away from home, how do you get it to your RV garage?

        We tow the jeep behind the RV so we have something else to drive. Kip drove the RV home and I drove the jeep.

        Okay. All is clear now. Of course, the R.V. has it’s own engine. Sheesh. I was thinking it was a trailer, but I should have known better.

    Such a trip. Welcome home. Bet your lovely little home looked great! I always need a vacation from my vacation to rest up from the unpacking and reality of laundry, cooking, cleaning and trips to the grocery store hitting me. What’s a Berkshire’s?

      It’s a super market. We didn’t go in. It’s easier to unhook there than in our drive. I have s lot of catching up to do. But no rush. I’m volunteering at the library tomorrow. Head start. Do you know what that is?
