Much o’ Nuttin and Paddle Ski

Driveway
Clayton,NC

Ok, so I’ve been lazy about posting.  I apologize but we really haven’t been doing anything blog worthy.  The house and yard are in great shape thanks to the neighbors.  Mark and his son Jordan spread pine straw here to give it that curb appeal.  Jordan is keeping our grass cut too.  We’ve enjoyed reconnecting with them all while we’ve been here.  We relaxed on the back porch and listened to the bullfrogs in the pond one warm afternoon.

We’ve enjoyed fresh asparagus from the garden area and we’ve had a rose or two in the MH.

These are all things that we otherwise would have missed out on if the house were already sold.  Still, I wish we had our freedom.  I keep telling myself that it will happen soon.  We lowered the price now hopefully that will spark some interest.

The Sea Eagle Paddle Ski 435 came in yesterday so we unwrapped it today and got familiar with it.  We hope to take it out on Falls Lake in a few days.  We’re excited about that!  Step 1, 2, and 3.
Paddle Ski is here! Almost there!
Paddle Ski is ready to go!

My last scheduled dental appointment is coming Tuesday so we plan to go somewhere soon after that. We need to act like full time rvers instead of displaced home owners.

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

GREAT pictures of your frogs and roses. Folks go full timing just hear and see those things you have in your backyard. You are still full timers if you are living in your rig and will never live in the house again so just think of it as a great camp site!!

Yippee! We are back from the no-internet world! Can't wait to test that new Sea Eagle! See you guys soon!

That paddle ski looks like just the ticket for you to have some great new adventures. And to think you don't have to carry it on the roof of your car.

Now are you going to debate over who gets to paddle from the back?
;c)

How nice of your neighbors to help out with the yard work!

Your roses are beautiful.

Good luck with your last dental appointment.

Glad to see the paddleski is all ready to go:o)) Have a great time breaking it in. I really think you two are going to love it.

There are much worse places than that beautiful back yard to camp. It will be sold soon!!!

I enjoy reading your blog and appreciate the patience you have in waiting for your home to sell. I'll be interested in the review of your new Sea Eagle too.

Hopefully spring will be bringing out the home buyers. Nice new Sea Eagle!

At least your campground is free!

I'm anxious to hear how the new boat works out. We sure like our Sea Eagles.

Love the flower pictures..hate the frog pics. :)

Gee that Paddle ski looks familiar :) I haven't seen ours in months. I think it's lost in the bowels of Lucy! :) It's been way too breezy here in TX to take it out. We're not so good paddling against white caps...and we don't have that cute little motor setup that Dan & Tricia have, but it is on our list :) Have fun on Falls Lake. That's where we took our maiden voyage too.

All things will happen in due time. I bet you guys are going to love the Sea Eagle. Can't wait to read of your "maiden voyage".
