Planning & Preparations, Thoughts & Musings

Almost Home

The last several weeks have been filled with a steady stream of physical labor that leaves my body aching and weary, but my heart glad and satisfied. I've posted many pictures so far in a Facebook Album called RV Renovations. If you have any trouble seeing them, please let me know. So far I have… Continue reading Almost Home

Destination

Throughout the month I have been thinking about my chosen word for this year (Apparate) and how I can apply it to each day. This past week, I've chosen to focus solely on the Destination. In the simplest terms, I think about how the things I do each day would be handled in such a… Continue reading Destination

An overdue update

Happy September! I can't believe that it's been so long since I posted anything. Time really has a way of getting away from you, doesn't it? Skipping ahead a little, I'll say this: I'm not living where I thought I'd be, but this place is better in many ways. The first being that I'm actually… Continue reading An overdue update

Planning & Preparations, Thoughts & Musings

Closer and closer

I have nearly all my stuff in the living room now as I prepare for moving day. It feels strange to know that the next place I call "home" will be temporary but, in a way, they always are.

I've gotten a few bins here and there and… Continue reading Hesitations

Conversations & Coffee

Lately, I've been taking a very hard look at how I use the things around my house and realizing that some of them are just not going to work in an RV. My French press, for example. To those who've never used one, you add fresh grounds to the carafe, pour in some boiled water,… Continue reading Conversations & Coffee

Planning & Preparations

Slowly, slowly

As cold temperatures race through the country, I can't help but wonder how I'm going to handle the winters. Oh, I have ideas of adding insulation, possibly the under-floor heating, and lots of wooly rugs, but will that be enough? I know that I could just drive somewhere where the temperatures are a little nicer,… Continue reading Slowly, slowly

Miscellaneous, Planning & Preparations

A Big Step Forward

Yesterday I opened The Raven's Cauldron! I'll admit that I was pretty worried about several things, but I can't exactly figure out why. I've asked myself if it was the fear of not making any sales or maybe that no one would like the shop or that I would just lose the passion for it.… Continue reading A Big Step Forward
