I did some things yesterday that I would put under "house maintenance", that I would not be doing if I were RVing full-time. I am sitting here, almost 9am, feeling the heat building from the outside ... wondering if I can spend another day working on my latest yard project.
Through a suggestion of a friend a few years ago, I laid River Rock in the flower beds in front of my house, with no border. Yesterday I bought what border was left at the local landscaping biz and had enough to do one section in front of my house. Wasn't bad, dug out only dirt, inserted the brick borders and covered with Cypress mulch around my Yews I put in last fall.
Now the work begins. I have 25' x 4' of River Rock bed to take out and move to the back side of the house. Then dig out to put in the brick border, level them and dig out dirt from the bed and level that. Put the black material for preventing weeds (does the stuff ever work) and then cover with more Cypress mulch.
It's going to be 90 today and yesterday 86-88 felt like the end of the world while I worked outside.
At different times of taking breaks, drinking lots of water and even after a 2 hour mid-day nap ... I kept thinking what it would be like if I were boondocking in my Class A RV (not bought yet) and sitting outside with the hounds in a nice mid 70's atmosphere with little humidity. Wondering where I would be this time of year.
Also wondering what I would do when I become bored while RVing.
What do you full-timers do when boredom hits you while you are on the road?
When I am bored here, I usually hit the local college town (25 miles away), for bookstores, camping stores and my favorite watering hole for the 12" Stromboli sandwich and then cruise back home to the spot outside of a small town, with 15 acres of hay behind me.
What would I do if I were bored while RVing full-time? Let me know what you do while traveling and boredom hits.
Well, its shade on the west side (front) of the house, so off I go to start my day of more landscaping.
I wouldn't be doing this if I were full-timing already .... would I? (laughing)
