A New Year ~ A New Home

The first cool Saturday morning we had in September, I set out to bake some of my banana chocolate chip muffins!



A new year for
French Ethereal~


Of course as you know we are no longer living in our
lovely home in the town of Murrieta, California...


Our new home is a travel trailer approximately 27' in length
and about 8' wide ~ one tenth the size (basically!)
of the home we just vacated as the sale 
 finally went through in August 2015.





Yoda enjoying one of his daily walks at beautiful Lake Skinner!  Yoda thinks all 14000 acres belong to him and her barks at
every new dog that comes out to camp.
{And also at the dogs who belong to other camp hosts who live here! Lol!}





Life full-time in a 27' trailer has its challenges, cooking being one of them! The extra-large cutting board provides some
much needed counter space (of which in this trailer... There is NONE.)
We use the stove to dry dishes set into the stovetop's wrought iron
grates propped up on their sides, and ALL dishes have to be washed after every meal.
;)


We ended up moving our trailer several times already
for various reasons.
One of which is... We have become "camp hosts" which means we are here to help folks who are camping
if they have a need or there is a problem
after hours.

So far, so good!
:)

Where one door closes... God opens another ~
I spent a lot of this year really stressed knowing that we would have to leave our home of 12 1/2 years.
We put EVERYTHING and I do mean everything
into two 10' x 25' storage units.

There were many tears, fits of anger, depression,

the works...

But 
we are on the other side now and I think God was
very loving, very gracious and very sure that He knew 
we would love being here in a beautiful area with
many species of birds,
raccoons, skunks, mule deer, 
bobcat, and coyotes
(Yoda loves sniffing for all of the new animals!).



I'll share the photos of the inside of our home

in another post soon,
but for now this will be all.
:)


I'll share some of the craziness of trying to make

good meals
while having to pull up every seat cushion
to get at the right pots and pans!
But, truly, this is a lovely place to be
and since 
French Ethereal rolls with the punches,
and I was once called
"RESILIENT"...


French Ethereal 
will be evolving with the changes...


Just a quick post on this Tuesday evening

to let you know I miss visiting with you
and
I will be trying to post more
and share 
The New French Ethereal!!!





Blessings to you, always,
