Possibilities and Crossroads...



Love this! ~ Highland Ridge RVs have "wallpaper" stamped with mini "chandeliers!"


~ Possibilities ~
Yesterday sparked a new adventure
for my family and today
I'd like to share a little of that adventure...





Murrieta Hot Springs and Hancock ~ looking towards the coastal mountains


Crossroads... Like this photograph above
Do I turn left?
Do I turn right?
I can't continue going blindly forward;
I need a plan...



A little wilderness area down at one of Murrieta's parks, early fall 2014



Part of the New Plan
involves
My hubby and I 
looking at larger living quarters
and
the possibilities are good that sometime
within a year
we should have a larger RV to live in
until life changes again with job changes and such.




This is our current trailer ~ all 27'4" of it! We have squeezed into it as best as we can. ;)



I personally need a bigger living space!
Living in 50 square feet of space, if that, 
inside our current
"tiny house"
just. isn't. enough.
 ... for me.

Hubby is happy living anywhere at all
and doesn't mind 
this transition or lack of square footage 
at all.

Me?

When I've taken time off from writing 
here in this here little ole blog,
{which is supposed to be about decorating 
and 
living in a beautiful home}...
When I'm really, really silent
for a long time...
it's. because. I. can't. write.


Like putting periods at the end 
of each word for emphasis.
Those same periods are blocking me from
Inspiration
Imagination
Getting work and photography done.


Life isn't
all roses and rosey...
I do get depressed about what has happened
and
make no bones about it,
some days are just
NOT GOOD.

But
most of the time I'm alright.
:)


The Future ~ 
We are really hoping to be able to purchase 
"bigger tiny house"
over this next year.

We are looking...



Beautiful bathrooms come standard with sinks where one can bend down to wash~up and
brush one's teeth, residential taps on all faucets making an RV a "home away from home."



I've personally lived in 34 different 
houses and apartments over the years first as a military brat, 
during college, then later as a military wife,
and 
now for the past 9 months in this trailer.
We are making it work
though
cooking is quite a challenge!
It's just another change
and mostly... I'm okay with change.

I still get to talk with birds and put out birdseed,
{our transient neighbors might think me a little weird},
I'm trying to make "a go" of this little garden
even with 
squirrels, rabbits and other rodents
munching away on every tasty, soft morsel
and leaf!
;)

It's important to 
Know Oneself
and 
I know what I need to keep me sane and feeling whole.
:)


So, Hubby and
are 
actively looking at fifth-wheels
and have found some great options!


This one I'm sharing today is from
Highland Ridge.

Always check out the overhead lighting in the sleeping area! So important when
one person wants to sleep and the other likes reading in bed.
;)


I like the bedrooms that are more like a "real bedroom" 
with
space around the bed to actually make it.
{one of my pet peeves here!}
If that's important to you like it is to me,
then
you'll agree that it's a
"must have."


Our shelving unit now in the "Tiny Home" is just visible to the left of the sewing table.



My other "must have"
More Closet Space!
You would laugh if you saw my old craft room
rack as our current "closet."
It works, it is functional
and
it is a light oak that is open and airy~feeling
but
you'd still laugh
that to make the bed takes over a half~hour each time
and
wears one out with the making of it.
I laugh over this ~
Our craft room was bigger than inside our "tiny home..."
;)



We are liking the t.v./fireplace areas available in mid-range fifth-wheel RVs.

We are shopping used and new
and
comparing brands, price~points, and
"what our absolute needs are"
~ vs~
"what can we live without."


Good cupboard space and a pots and pans drawer under the range.

I'm loving the china cabinet so I could bring some real dishes!


So the New Plan
is in the works! 
The Next Part
goes with my whole wanting to take
French Ethereal
to the next level...

But more about that next time!
Blessings to you,
Barb :)
