Slow Down and Hurry Up......

It seems we've been on a treadmill lately. We left home last Wednesday with the motorhome and headed to Miramichi to help friends who purchased a new to them older park model, block up and set up their new guest house. It was suppose to be delivered on Thursday but of course Murphy was involved and it didn't show up until Friday morning. 
Rick spent Thursday wiring in a 30 amp dedicated RV plug just for the camper. Friday morning we were all up around 5:45 am. We had to pack up our rig and move it out of their driveway and into Linda's parent's driveway then be at the sellers place by 7:30am. The camper is a cute as a button. It reminds me of a beach house inside. No dark panel wood in this rig.
How cute is this:

Its an older unit with patio doors, the previous owners updated it with paint and decor..We are so happy for them..and I'm sure their company will enjoy this guest house for years to come.
On Saturday we motored on down to our cottage as our son and a crew of his friends were going there for the weekend. And we just can't miss an opportunity to party with the kids. There were lots of laughs..ohhh to be that age again.

And of course we had the overflow overnight guests in the Lilly and Tucker had to guard the bed till the guests came home...
I made a big breakfast for everyone Sunday morning..then we all started to pack up for the trip back home. We arrived home mid afternoon and received an email that Rick's cousin (whom he had never met) was in town camping not far from us. So we showered quickly and headed over to visit with them.
Serria, Stacia, Brian, Rick and Trinity

I was sure glad to hit the sack last night. Today Rick mowed and puttered around and I cleaned and filled the clothes line. Friday we fly to Vancouver. I'm looking forward to our arrival but not to the flight. I'm a petrified flier. So not sure how I'll make out with that. So now we have to start organizing for the trip. We did mange to get the suitcases out of storage today, and of course I'm making lists so we don't forget anything. We fly back here to the east coast on Monday, load the motorhome and head for Nova Scotia on Wednesday to meet up with Donna and Ralph, then on Thursday we are all heading to Cape Breton.
Ok time to go try catch up on blog reading..take care all and remember, stay safe out there and

'Home is where you park it'


  1. Goodness girl, you sure are a busy little bee. Flying is a breeze, it's the delays that aggravate me. Keep on having fun!

  2. Ahh, Cape Breton. Love that area. One day we'll take the trek to Nova Scotia, and beyond!

  3. Just a gorgeous header photo!
    What a cute idea to have a house guest. So bright and cheerful!

  4. I hope you have rechargable batteries, because with all you've been doing, you might be running out of juice shortly.

    Hopefully you can get some rest on the plane (fingers crossed).

  5. My darlin' wife used to be a petrified flyer, but after having to head off to an airport for nearly 20 years now, she's gotten used to it. Used to be she'd look to see if the captain had a wedding ring on, just so he's make sure to try his best to get home to his wife? Not sure how that logic works.

    You'll be fine.
    Have fun! (but then, you always do)

  6. You two are partying RV jet setters! Why not! You're having fun and taking it all it should be!

  7. Yupper you've been a very busy little girl & fella... Sure wish I could make your flight easier for you but since I can't I pray for you to relax... We are anxiously awaiting your return and meeting up with you for some rootin tootin fun!!!! Travel safe ♥

  8. Sure looked like a great time with the kids. Liked the picture of the furkids guarding the bed. What a fun, busy, summer your having. Have a great Tuesday.

  9. Sure a busy time and always fun to party with the kids and does bring back great memories.

  11. A quick trip to Vancouver huh? I love Cape Breton. Hope you guys have a great time.Gingee sends a hello and tail wag to Tucker and Lilly!

  12. just an FYI, looking at the picture of all your fam/friends hanging out on the porch, isnt that horse show supposed to be hung with bowl at bottom so the luck doesnt run out?

  13. What a LIFE Elaine. So much fun but you must be tired. And now the flight and then a trip to Cape Breton. I sure am glad I'm at least going to get to go there vicariously. If we hadn't been side swiped, we would have been up in that area ourselves right now. The plan was Florida for Jan-March and up the east coast to Maine by July and then August and September in Cape Breton and PEI. Maybe next year???? Can't wait to see about your travels.
