Back in the Stick House?

This past weekend I moved back into our stick house......oh, don't worry it was just a temporary thing.  My son lives in our stick house at present....he and Mesha.  Remember Mesha is the Siberian Husky he adopted from our local shelter.  Sam was out of town for the weekend and I volunteered to take care of Mesha while he was gone.  
I had a sewing project I needed to work on so I set up one of the spare bedrooms as my workspace.  I'm reupholstering our dining chairs for the fifth wheel.  I'll share some before and after photos next time.  I had a heck of a time with that project.....guess I'm a little rusty...been a while since I have even had my sewing machine out!
Mesha was her usual "puppy'"self.....and sweet as ever.  She is such the cuddle puppy....every night at bedtime she comes up on the bed and snuggles and cuddles with many goodnite kisses.  She loves to lay her head right on your chest and bat those big blue eyes.....I melt everytime!
So, darling husband Billy was on his own.  Just him and the furballs.  I think he kinda missed me....although he'll never admit to it. 
How did it feel being back in that "stick" house?  It was strange....I mean it still feels like my house, but not my home if you know what I mean.  I'm still very content to live in our fifthwheel, our little home on wheels.  I don't feel cramped or crowed....I love my recliner and oh, how I missed our airbed.  I'll never go back to a regular mattress....that I can promise you.  I love my kitchen too......plenty of counter space and when I bake or cook all my ingredients and tools are right at my fingertips.  My only complaint is the "rv stove"....the industry really does need to do some upgrading in that department.  Our shower in the fifthwheel is pretty roomy too, but I'll admit it was nice being in a bathroom where the toilet handle doesn't reside on the floor and the shower head was a good foot above my head!  That being said.....yes, I would do it all over a heartbeat.  I love the fact that wherever I go my little home on wheels follows behind.....I love exploring....seeing what's around that next curve in the road or just over the hill.  I love meeting new people...sharing our stories.  This is just such a special time in our I know we will cherish and always look back upon with a smile and a "remember when".....


  1. I know exactly how you feel about "your" home. Our son and his fiance rents ours from us (hopefully to buy it pretty soon)and when we come back to visit, I usually cook in the house and we take our showers in the house after they go to work. But my RV is home. I love living in the RV and hope it's many years before we have to give it up.

  2. Isn't is great when some of the decisions we've made in life still make us happy? :)

  3. glad you feel like you have still made the right decision!..happy sewing!

  4. I feel exactly the same way.. Good luck with the project!

  5. I enjoyed reading your post and hearing your thoughts about your "home." Looking forward to seeing photos of your sewing project.

  6. Yep, everthing you said just verifies what I think & how I feel. Give that pooch an extra big smooch for the Bayfield Bunch too:))
