Wet winter sets record
This winter set the record for the most rainfall in the Portland area. Wouldn’t you know it. There was one day it even snowed a bit but not enough to accumulate. All this time I have been staying at the Clackamus River RV Park. I stayed nice and dry while indoors in my Lazy Daze.
Move in day
All the time I am waiting for my new modular home to be built, delivered and set-up. They completed it on February 8 and it was delivered to the site, but I had to wait until the set-up was completed and the deck that was added to the side was built. Then I could move in. It took them longer to build the deck due to the rainy weather.
On March 24th I signed my life away. HA! Then I moved in on March 25. The only funiture I had in there was the bed as they had already delivered and set it up. I received a new couch and chair on Sat. March 26. Then things started to trickle in that I had ordered.
I have been very busy shopping for my new home. I have lived in my RV almost 6 years and didn’t have anything when I moved in. I didn’t want to have to move things back and forth from home to RV and then back to home each time I went on the road. So I have been buying everything new for my new home such as bedding, dishes, cookware, silverware, etc. Here is a pic of my new abode.
I feel like I have been working on an assembly line for the last few weeks. It has been something new each day. I found a nice end table that would go great in my living room at Fred Meyer. It took the better part of a day to assemble it. Trying to figure out the instructions for some of these assemble pieces is a nightmare. But I didn’t do too badly and everything turned out OK. Chica really enjoys this spot. Before I got the table I had the bear lamp on the floor. That bear is almost the same size as Chica. One day I spotted her when she went up and licked the bear on the mouth. HA!
The next item I purchased was a bar stool that I will use for sitting at my bar to eat and check my computer. It was also not an easy assembly however I was able to muster through it.
My next item was an outdoor barbecue. I will never buy another barbecue unless it is assembled and delivered. This thing took all day. It was a hassle just getting it out of the box! With a lot of patience and assembling and reassembling I finally finished it off. Then I got my tank filled and it fired up the first time I tried it. I am really enjoying my barbecue.
Small Table and two chairs
The final item I had to assemble was a small table and two chairs. It is the perfect size for my new bay window. It took most of the day but not as bad as I though it would be. Chica’s table is right next to mine. She is really getting used to her new home and loves to take walks down to the river.
Just because I now have a new home doesn’t mean I will stop RVing. I will be camp hosting for 3 months in the summer starting in May. I will be at Lake Harriet in Oregon where I worked last summer. I was really glad that PGE called me back again. It will help to make the house payments. YUK!!!
I am also planning on traveling to Quartzsite next winter for a month to meet up with all my friends who I haven’t seen in some time.
