Ahhh! Saturday

Another Saturday has rolled around. This time last week we were at the hotel outside of Boston. It is amazing how much has changed in this one week. We have completely revamped our purchasing plans and timeline based on last week’s rv show. Open-mouthed smile We are thinking about making a trip to another show in Syracuse, N.Y. on the first Sunday in March. That will be a one day trip though as Syracuse is close enough to go there and back without staying over. Of course, that will completely depend on whether it is a nice day for traveling – no storms in the outlook etc. Hopefully by then it will be warming up.

The kitchen is really coming along as well. So far the new cupboards are in – we have the fronts on all of the doors and drawers, and the hardware was added yesterday. Our upper cupboards are finished and ready for the replacement of our dishes and food items. So we can start clearing off our dining room table today! We still have quite a bit left to be done next week. Our new dishwasher is out in the garage ready to be installed, the countertop is going to be a granite countertop from the slab that we picked out on our trip to AuSable in December, a tile backsplash will be added, a new sink and new light over the sink. Also the new pullout drawer still needs to be built on the other side of the stove. So there are still a lot of changes to document over the coming days.

This should be a low key weekend. We are working in the kitchen, and we want to do the electronic filing of our taxes. We could have done them before now, but the IRS wasn’t accepting them until Feb. 14th anyway, so this is the weekend to get that done. Oh, and we will probably work on cleaning the frozen ice and snow out of our driveway because we’re actually supposed to start warming up this weekend – it’s going to be in the 30s!!! Next week, there are 40s on the horizon – woohooo!!! I’m so excited! Smile

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!!


  1. Wow, you guys are getting alot done. Makes me feel like I'm not doing enough. I need to paint and do some minor repairs before I can list my house. It is sunny today and getting warmer here also. I hope that the warmer weather will help me to get motivated.

  2. I find reading about what other people are doing to reach the goal of someday full timing, quite motivating. I try to do something every day, with a big project on my list once a month.

    Someday this work will all be a memory.

  3. I can't wait until all this ice & snow are gone. It's driving me crazy!!
