pixiesmagic ...after 4 in the afternoon
I am just about ready for a little break or breather or whatever it may be called when you've overdone it and you just have to crash! Hello dear reader; from one end of the day to the other; I've just finished prep'ing a batch of fresh vegetables, and coincidently my 3rd load (laundry) today. Don't ask me where it all comes from; I just don't know! Whatever or where ever it comes from; it has been routed and handled. I almost ran out of space to hang stuff but with a couple of make-shift changes with the airers that already decorate certain spaces; I managed to get it all placed out in such a way as to ensure eventual drying.

Rambler The Quest for the New Home
At first I was really nervous about the idea of moving out from a house and finding an rv or motor home to stay in while we look for property and finish school. I was to the point of having anxiety attacks mainly because we have had many roommates before that have screwed us which messed up our rental history. Plus the fact that most rentals wouldn't accept a renter who has 3 Siberian huskies, 2 cats, 2 turtles, and fish.
I really prayed about it, and was thinking back to when my husband and I were homeless living in our car in San Diego, Ca. Granted, it was during the summer, but still. It was pretty scary at first, and we got our fair share of parking tickets, but after getting used to it, we were pretty comfortable. We did end up renting a room from co-workers but those were horrible experiences, we should have stayed homeless.
I thought back to those times in the car and I smiled, a lot. This is what started to bring back the hope that things would be okay. So I started... (more)
