A beautiful drive all the way, not too much traffic going our way which was nice. A lot of people heading south!
We pulled into the driveway a little before 1230. I spent the rest of the day cleaning the trailer and unloading stuff. Ken did his thing with the truck and trailer too. Once I was done with the water in the trailer, he pulled it over to the dump here and then winterized it. Even though it's only sitting for a week or two, with these temps here, it's got to be done. 16 degrees here this am.
About 1600 our neighbors called and said they had started a fire, so we headed over for Happy Hour or two. We called it quits pretty early, came home and pulled out leftovers for dinner. Watched some Lonesome Dove and called it a night.
Friday was spent taking down Christmas decorations and cleaning house. Loads of laundry were done too! Ken took down the lights on the bunkhouse and outhouse and kept himself busy. Karen had mentioned that she wanted a HUGE fire on Friday night so Ken went over there to split some firewood for them since we were going to be enjoying the fire too. John is able to get telephone poles from his work, so it was cut to length, so Ken just had to split it.
Close to 1700 we headed over for a few hours. Very nice way to spend the evening. Home for a late dinner and then bedtime.
Saturday morning, we got up near 0600 and checked in with our blogging friends. All good there! Watching Pioneer Woman now and her healthyish cooking this am.
Time to get the day going! Today's plan to take down the bunkhouse decorations inside and get clean sheets on the trailer bed. Before you know it, the day is done!!
Have a wonderful day!
UPDATE Later in the day...
Well, I wanted to get this posted this am..didn't happen! Ken got the Money Pit loaded on our trailer so we can take it to CA next weekend (as long as weather cooperates)..OUr friend K.C. is buying it. Bittersweet, but again it is named Money Pit for a reason. He knows the issues and still wants it.

I did some baking after getting the trailer bed made and the stuff traded out in the bunkhouse. All back to normal for 11 months or so. I made some soup/stew for the next few days. We're not really soup people, but because it's so cold salad just doesn't seem to cut it. Banana bread made for Ken's coffee in the am too.
|Ken's soup..fresh veggies, potatoes, low sodium white beans|
(I didn't take time to make fresh)..potatoes and andouille sausage.
Mine had the fresh veggies and a little sausage..I'm not eating
beans or potatoes right now.
