The Adventure

” If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet” – Rachel Wolchon

Today marks 1 year since we moved into our 5th wheel.

July 22,2017 we officially moved out of our house.

It was time to start the final demo on the last 2 rooms in the house.

We are pretty luck, we have 2 amazing and talented kids. They stepped up and helped Myron finish the renovations.

The master bedroom and bathroom were completely gutted and redone.

Our son Randy installed all our flooring, and he did an amazing job!

The only thing left in the kitchen was the completion of the backsplash. Our daughter Courtney picked out the tiles and our son Randy did all the installation.

Now with the inside done, the outside needed a facelift. Again our kids, son in-law Glenn and our friend Gwen stepped up. Without their help we wouldn’t have completed by the deadline as we were both still working full-time. For that we are thankful!!

Renovation now completed and it was finally time to purge our stuff.

We sold, gave away and donated whatever we didn’t want to keep.

With the house emptied, now it came time for Myron’s shop. This was a challenge to say the least. He still planned on doing upholstery when we are back in Canada, so that meant he still needed to keep a lot of his supplies.

Anyone that knows Myron knows if you need it, he will have it!

It took about a week and a half and it was finally done.

And on October 31, we said our final goodbye to the house that we raised our children in and locked the front door for the last time, as the next chapter of our story began.

Conquer

It’s hard to believe it’s already the end of June, and that means graduation parties, Canada day celebrations, and spending time with friends and family. Next week we have 3 graduation functions to attend, so we figured it would be easier to pack up and head to the Battlefords where we would be closer to the festivities!

We have been stationary for the last month at my brothers acreage, and it seems we have unpack a lot of our crap, so today we are busy preparing for transport mode.

We have an antenna that has an attitude problem, so we have to climb up on the roof to secure it, and at the same time the solar panels need a good cleaning.

This is usually Myron’s job, but with a major Meniscus tear and a partial ACL tear in his left knee he is out of commission till after his surgery! That means I need to step up and help with the outside duties.

Yes I know, Myron sit still?! Fortunately one of us is more stubborn than the other. 😉

I seen a quote that said

“Fear has two meanings…

Face everything and run, or Face everything and rise!”

Today I faced my fear of heights and climbed up on our 5th wheel to prep for transport mode!

The older I get, the more things I want to cross off my to do list! Today, I finally conquered my fear heights!

☑️ get over my fear of heights

RV baking!

With all our traveling this past winter, I’ve been slacking in the baking department. I had some ripe bananas staring at me, so I decided since it was a rain day, it would be a perfect day to test out a new gluten-free banana bread recipe.

I wish these pictures had a scratch and sniff, the smell is amazing!
