That would mean it's time to head South!

I will be glad when it's this time next year. We will be in warmer climes... somewhere.

Re: What colour to paint rims?

We may be completely crazy...

We haven't quite finished our bedroom in the bus and we have already decided to "remodel" it!

We will be turning our bed 1/4 turn and placing it up against the driver's side wall.

Cutting a few inches off the bed frame to allow for 14" at the foot of the bed (so I can squeeze around the foot of the bed to "my" side of the bed.

Pulling two windows and swapping them (a regular window into an emergency window space) then skinning over the emergency window frames after removing the glass.

Pulling the existing wall covering and replacing it with full height planks.

We decided it would be easier to climb over the cedar chest (placing it in front of the rear emergency door) than climbing over the headboard of the bed. Better now than later!

Keeeeeeeeeeeeeeith, are you one of those people that comments on articles before you read them?

*Squints* My morbid curiosity wants to know what the censored T word is but my sense of self-preservation is screaming like a little girl.

You're crazy, mum. Totally nuts. Yup. Please don't repaint the bus, Gypsy Rose is the red aspect to your blue.

Couldn't stand looking at David's empty chair. It would start me up crying. So I replaced both of the chairs with a mini daybed and rearranged things a little. It hangs over the wheelwell about 11-12 inches so I added a few decorative/structural brackets under it as well.

Got the shelving in what I thought would be my "linen" closet. Turns out, after stuffing the Club packs of toilet paper (30 rolls) and paper towels (12 fat rolls) in, I have just enough room above the vacuum cleaner (Bucket Head on a 5 gallon bucket) to slide a soda can crate in. Oh well, I got a 4 ft wire shelf that runs the length of the closet (that will not get cedar lined today) that I can put the extra bath sheets on. Looks like it's going to start raining out there and the temps are starting to drop. Time to clean up the mess. Nice that I got a place to put the paper stuff. I've only been grocery shopping once a month lately. So the bulk packs are a time/money saver. Also means I won't need to store paper towels in the galley. More room to store food!
