We are having such beautiful springtime weather and I’ve been enjoying sitting in my rocker outside under our RV’s awning reading in the evenings and weekends. Even though we are parked in our driveway, the view is beautiful and very peaceful. All of our azalea bushes are blooming in varying shades of pink and white. I sometimes imagine what it will feel like when we’re at different RV locations, sitting out under the awning in our rockers. I picture looking out over a body of water, or sitting in a forest and wonder how it will compare with our little driveway spot! When we’re finally on the road, wherever Roy and I are together will be our home.
I didn’t realize how many books I owned until I started selling them. A few years ago I thought I downsized my book collection but it seems to have multiplied while on the bookshelves and when transferred to boxes, one box became two and then three and then four. Of course we cannot take all those with us so I sold them and am now increasing my Kindle library of books. What a space saver and it fits in my purse and for many more reasons I love it! Even my Bible is on my Kindle, in three translations! Gotta love technology in cases like this.
I went to Sam’s Club after work today(Friday) and bought lots of fresh fruit. Madisyn and I are feasting out on nectarines and plums. She’s never had them before and is loving their wonderful flavors. Best way to describe her eating them is that she actually gobbled them! She’s spending the night tonight so all’s well in Grannie and Paw Paw’s world!!
We just had a visit from our nephew Greg and his precious daughter Sally. They haven’t seen Dora before and Sally was quite curious about the little house where Rosie and Roy are living. With the computer he dropped off for Roy to work on, Roy officially has a full week of computers to keep him busy and out of trouble. There are computers all over this place!
Roy’s made great progress on clearing out the computer room. Madisyn and I chipped in some help and it’s now completely empty! His computer sale is set for April 6th. Some of the things he’ll be selling are: 10 computers with monitors and keyboards, hard drives, CD drives, some Linksys wireless products, document scanners, a printer, some ink cartridges, computer fans, lots of little computer parts, cables, dozens of computer programs, PrintMaster software and lots more including desks, bookshelf and salt water fishing rods/reels. My own personal computer is for sale with two 19″ monitors and super dupper UPS, keyboard and lots of great programs, video card and more! It’s a Roy Chauvin built computer which only has the best! At that point we’ll be 100 percent finished clearing out the entire house and selling everything we’re going to sell! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since the house’s computer room has been disassembled and Roy is still repairing computers he seems to have expanded his allotted computer space in Dora. In the middle of Dora’s kitchen floor is a folding table with computer “stuff” all over it. Here’s a picture of him repairing someone’s computer in the middle of the kitchen. What a weird life we now live!
The housing market in our area is about as down as it gets. There are so many houses for sale and so very few buyers. Of those few buyers only a few of them have the down payment and good credit to make it happen. Of course we pick now to try to sell our house! It’s believed that the market should be better in a year or two or three, just not now. Having realized this and gotten some good advice from realtors we’ve decided to rent our house for the next year or two or three. When and if the housing market gets better we’ll try again to sell the house and hopefully then not lose money on the sale. Now, we just to find some really good renters! Otherwise we’ll have to start a blog about how to live in an RV in your driveway for FOREVER!
As always we sang some beautiful songs in church this morning. And as always, they were about God, go figure yes in a church we do sing about God. If you haven’t been lately you should try it! Even though said jokingly, I’m quite serious about that. This Sunday was Palm Sunday which in the Christian faith is the observance of the day Christ rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. The people, recognizing his significance, placed palm leaves in the streets ahead of him. This coming Friday is our day of observance of when Christ as killed on the cross to save Christians from our sins. Those who have accepted Christ as their Savior and Lord have had our sins washed away by the very act of Christ dying in agony and pain. He chose to do that for us and we, mostly me, are so unworthy of that. My absolute favorite part of Easter is Resurrection Sunday when those at Calvary realized that “He is Risen”. Jesus’ death, without his resurrection, would have meant nothing. Yet, because of the Resurrection, it means everything!
This is not the time of year where you need to be inside on your computer, so now that you know what the Chauvin’s have been up to, get outside, enjoy the sunshine and beauty of God’s world! Have a blessed Easter and ya’ll come back now ya’ hear!
