Finally...Curtains...& Unfortunate Findings!

Hey All!

  I hope you are doing good! It's been a while since I've been a around! As an owner of an antique store, right now is my peak season so life has been keeping me busy! In between all of that we've been trying to work on Rosie, although it is one day a week...Sundays.

  With the heat rising well over triple digits every day and no air conditioning in her, it's been making it real tough and severely limited on what we can do. A bit ago, we did discover by accident water leaks within the line that goes to the kitchen sink, which we replaced along with cutting out the water tank under the seat for storage. The tank would never be used as we take several gallons of distilled water wherever we go to use, so it was just better if we cut it out to have it for storage space.

  We've finally got curtains! YAY!!!  For me to sit down to make them took an act of Congress although it got done in 2 Sundays! Whooohooo! I made sheers to go under the curtains that are hour glassed. Does anyone realize how much fabric is now-a-days? I'm in the wrong business!!! LOL!

  Still have things to do inside like adding decorations to the walls, change out the kitchen faucet and hang up some hooks in the kitchen area. After that, we will slow down on that and seriously concentrate on the outside..the best we can!

  For the past few weekends we've been working on the outside and this feels like it's going slower than molasses on a cold Winter's day in Alaska! Ughgh! I feel like we will never, ever get done! So much, so little time....*sigh!*

  Last weekend, we worked on getting some of that nasty goop off of the windows and around and it seems as though we did worse than good. Ughgh. Worked on it a bit yesterday and I think it just needs patience is all! Sanded down the tongue and got some surface rust off, cut off the outside copper tubing that goes inside to the fridge that isn't being used, and sanded rough spots on her outside to get ready for painting!

  Didn't get much done yesterday in 105° heat at 9am in the morning, but we accomplished something...which is good! Now, the big debate is air conditioning and how we are going to take care of this issue and malfunction!

  Well, the air co saga belongs for another blog entry, so I will check out for now...but still hanging around...hope to hear from ya'll out there...

Happy Glamping!

Hi Cravin,

  Thanks for the kudos and moral! I feel so bad as she sits on the side of the house...every time I go outside my heart sinks as honestly I'm not sure if she will go out this year...just not enough time...and if I took her out with the outside looking like it is, I'd be highly embarrassed. Just wish the heat would relent. It truly makes life tough...although we're trying...cuz we are happy glampers! *GRINS!*
