Glorified camping

When the husband was still working, we were in "park housing".  It was one of the perks of the job

and it was great.  Well....since retiring and moving to the farm....we've been "homeless of sorts".  When

we  built the  shop building, we enclosed a corner of it to include the pressure tank for the well, a

shower, stool, shop sink and the washing machine.  We also have a classic 1972 Winnebago motor home.

frugal....I don't know that I want to pay the electric bill to keep it cool all day long.   It's not the most

 energy efficient thing!  And I'd feel kind of guilty sitting in the cool while the husband is out

working in the 100 + temps we've been having. 

When we have decent tempertures we "live" in the shop building where we've got a queen sized bed,

recliners and a decent sized television as well as the fridge, stove, microwave and freezers.  Life is

pretty good then!  I just have to keep I swat flies and sweat....that this is just a part

of the journey.  We lovingly refer to our current lifestyle as "glorified camping"!!

The good news is that the builder thinks that he can get started on our foundation next week!

  Yippee!!!   If we could just see some progress on the sure would make things a little
