We did a “study” this winter -- just low key and personal, that is. A few of our questions are at least partially answered. Do we want to continue our RVing now that we have another home in Indianapolis? Is the lifestyle still as attractive? Or are we ready to hang up Ferd’s keys?
How did we feel about taking to the road again? Did the traveling still have its attraction?
Honestly, after the 18 months break in 2011-2012, we easily readjusted to our life in the motorhome last Fall. Seeing some old friends and traveling to a few new places was very enjoyable. And missing the ice and snow in the Midwest was a no-brainer! We had a great time out on the road over the past five months. Ferd continues to make a nice home for us and is comfortable for traveling. Leaving the condo seems to have worked out without problems…at least for this winter.
Results of the study are: We are still feeling fortunate to be able to move around in Ferd at our leisure. We’ll continue to maintain this two-sided way of living for now.
So anyway, we are resettled into our little place here in Indianapolis for a while. Unpacking Ferd was not fun, but we survived. There are many projects on the to-do list for our condo. One aspect we were considering was a new TV satellite or cable service. Whether we wanted to put the Dish Network TV satellite “on vacation” and get something different for home. Check that one off! We investigated, evaluated, arranged and overcame the headaches of the process. We not only have a new Uverse modem and DVR, we are enjoying new selections on our Amazon account. Thanks friends for the input we received this winter from those of you who were way ahead of us on these options. It’s great!
We’re also busy remembering where everything might be and finding those things that we left undone or developed over the winter. For instance, the weeds went crazy with all the rain. I’m pulling weeds and planting. Jerry’s fixing indoor lights and planning a workbench in the garage. No hurry though. We’re taking it slow.
One of the projects that was on my agenda was to scan, organize and backup computer files, especially the scads of photos that were in storage. I’ll never really finish this little endeavor. But, I always have fun looking back at the oldies.
So now, my brain’s busy coming up with other ways to have fun with these old photos. Some of you know I’ve started using these days-gone-by pics to create cards with a little different wrinkle. Now, I’ve decided to reuse a few as Facebook cover and profile pictures. I started with one of Jerry and me with Ole Yeller from a few years ago. You can see it on my FB page.
But all this scanning has to lead elsewhere, right?
How about we do some time travel to the past here on the blog?! I’ll dig out one or two old photos each week for a post. Who knows what will pop up!
Since this special lady’s birthday is this weekend, I’ll kick off with Krissy.
Thanks for visiting Hurley Travels. Stay safe.
