Another travel day but, it brought us to our last stop before we get to our winter home (well, through January 7th) in southern Florida. We'll be here a week... we're in the jungle between a lake and the ocean. I got to back into this narrow spot... it was great to have someone here to guide me! It will be lovely to get some painting done today. The rotten weather has kept us on the move... making it difficult to work. It's still a little chilly here for Florida but, it's finally warm enough to wear tank tops, for a little portion of the day anyway.
This location has very sandy ground... and we had a rough time getting set up because of it. But, we finally got it.
This RV life is full of adjustments. From the constant relocations to simply allowing my cats on my bed... change is my life. And it is good!
Change is inevitable. You can embrace the adventure or fight it (you'll be miserable if you try to fight it). I used to be afraid of change. All of this is definitely outside of my comfort zone, but, that's where the magic happens...outside of the comfort zone.
I've dropped my trailer the same way in I don't even know how many locations now. Yesterday, in this sandy ground, that didn't work. I'm very grateful that we were able to solve the problem ourselves (and extremely grateful nothing was damaged).
You see, the plastic block that I've been using under the jack simply sunk in the sand... then, it shifted and the jack went deep in the sand, on nothing. We were able to reconnect it to the truck, thankfully. And I now need to call my mom and apologize.
You see, she and Ray sent me with things that I was like "I don't have room for that"...I was not very grateful. One of those things (a big wooden block to pull up on if I get a flat) is what worked for holding the jack out of the sandy ground. Its larger surface area made it more stable. Today, I'll eat crow and apologize and thank my mom and Ray. ð¤·
Once again, I am reminded to simply show gratitude.
Well, I think it's about time for the sun to rise on this new day. A walk on the beach at sunrise is calling me.
Here's to a productive and wonderful day. Love you all!
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
