Brrrrrr, it has been cold here at night. We have been spending a few nights up at the river in the fiver and it is cold. I'm nice and cozy in the fiver, but when it comes time to walk the dogs------I have actually had to break down and wear shoes and socks. I can't tell you how unhappy that makes me. Anyway, here are some photos of our neighbor's garage. As much as I hate to see "progress" encroaching on our "wilderness", I do like the design and they are very nice. They have included a "loft" bedroom over the garage area. They have also put in a small kitchen and full bath downstairs. Their plan is to be able to spend time there on the weekends till they retire and build the house. As much as I enjoy our time on the river, it is just to darn cold to be there year round.

I spent most of yesterday brushing, clipping, and bathing the furballs. They both sure did need it, especially after our trip to Turkey Run. I get such a kick out of watching them run thru the house after their baths. I know they feel better!

As most of you know, we are currently staying in our stick house trying to complete projects and get it ready to sell. We have; however, made the decision not to sell this year. Although the economy did play a role in our decision we also wanted to make sure our son had a roof over his head for the winter. He is currently a Purdue student and would love to live on campus, but that is just not do-able right now. Hopefully, he can work things out for next term.

We will be heading up to the river to our fiver today. The temps are dipping, so we need to make sure it is ready for the frosty temps forecast for tonight and tomorrow. I am so ready to move back into our fiver. It just so cozy and relaxing. It's home.

I received a note from a fellow rv-dreamer that some of you will be getting together this March in Texas. I wish we could be there, but our plans are to leave Texas by the end of December. We want to spend some time in New Mexico and than on to Arizona. We will start our journey back to Indiana sometime in the late spring. Hopefully, the market will have improved or at least stablized and we can put the house on the market at that time.

I sure do hope the temps here in Indiana improve----I've actually had to break out my "winter" flip flops!!

I'm back! I'm not going to promise to blog every day, but I will post a few times each week. The countdown has begun---we hope to be leaving and heading to Texas after Thanksgiving if not before.

Yesterday was my B-day! Happy Birthday to me! I'm 51 years young. It was also little Belle's B-day, she turned 8. Belle and I decided we wanted to spend our birthdays hiking at Turkey Run State Park. So, of course, we took Cosmo and Bill along for the day. It was a beautiful fall day and the furballs so enjoyed bouncing through the water and the mud! A grand day was had by all!
