One Year Today We Bought Our Home on Wheels - Learned a New Craft

(Wauchula, FL) - It's finally warmed up; it got to 75 degrees with a nice breeze. That's the way it's supposed to be here in Florida.  But we hear it's going to be in the 30's again earlier next week. It's good to have the warmth back.

One year ago today we were at the dealer to take delivery of Tumbleweed.  It was fun to go back into the archives to read what we were going through at the time.  (You can go back to any of our blog posts by using the Blog Archive, located at the bottom right of this page.)  It sometimes feels like it's been a lot longer than a year since we bought it, but other times it feels like the time has just flown by.  I'll do a full year recap in March on the anniversary of when we left NC and actually became "full timers."

I noticed on the event calendar that a session of string art was going to be taught at the Clubhouse at 1:00.  I just had to check it out.  This is what string art looks like on a Christmas card.
I really like it, so that may be my new craft instead of the beading that I used to do. There's several books in the park office with string art patterns.  All I need is yarn or embordiery thread, and a needle.

It was such a nice day Jim went walking, then we both played with the shuffleboard group. It was great not freezing.

We have plans for a day trip tomorrow.  So nice in paradise!

I was thinking maybe you could purchase some candy up north and take it south and sell it around the holidays next year. Some maple candy would be good about now. If you found something that there was a market for on each end of your travels you might be able to deduct some travel costs. Think about what you have seen. Is there anything you could mark up or get at a bulk discount?
How about some quilts from Pennsylvania?

I started reading blogs about one year ago. I think I found you in January. You were one of the first I "back read" to get your whole story!
