Saying Goodbye to the Shack

Tomorrow morning we leave the Little Shack bound for Vancouver Island and our family. We'll be away for, til June!  Well, actually Trev and I will probably be back in about 10 days. He has an appointment with his surgeon then and we will make the trip back for that.  Whether we'll actually be able to get to the Shack is another matter.  As winter is now closing in on us here, with the ground already frozen solid and the lakes iced over, snow is not far behind.  We've had a few flurries in the past couple of days. Threats, but nothing substantial. In the next week or so it could suddenly dump a load and that'll be it till April! If it snows, we'd have to park at the bottom of the driveway and hike up to the Shack. Not fun, but 'been there, done that'.  We'll have to see how the weather goes before we can plan on coming back to the Shack then.
So, we are leaving tomorrow with everything we 'have to have' in case we can't get back. We will be living full time in our Little Shack on Wheels.  It's actually not a Shack, it's a travel trailer, and as trailers go, it's not that little.  32 feet of wonderful, simple living space. We purchased it in the spring after an extensive search for just the right one. We are thrilled with it! I've been looking forward to going full-time in it for months and now that it's here, it's great....but I am going to miss my Little Shack on the Hill.  I think I have appreciated living here more in the last few weeks than ever before.  The peace and quiet, the birds and squirrels that visit the deck each day, the view of the valley, the sunrises and sunsets.  It is such a lovely spot to be.  I am going to miss it.

On the other hand,  I am going to enjoy being close to our kids, and our grandkids!  I've been eagerly awaiting the time when we can all be together more often.  Christmas will be spent with all our kids and grandkids together. Can't wait!
So, for the next several months, I'll be blogging away from the Shack.  Look for posts on cooking and living in an RV with 3 people, 2 dogs, 2 cats and a Bearded Dragon lizard!  It's sure to be an adventure!  Stay tuned!

    Hi Connie! Thanks for the good wishes and the follow! I'll try not to let you down in the travel department. At the moment we are busy settling into the RV park we decided on for our first month in the trailer. Fantastic view of Georgia Strait from our space....can't beat that! It's been extremely cold here so had all our plug-in heaters and the furnace on since we parked to get things warmed up. Thanks for stopping by...Sue
