We have a large aluminum lawn ornament in front of our house after I moved it yesterday from its storage place downtown.
Many thanks for our friends Shawn and Helen for loaning us some flat space beside their big rig while we waited a couple of weeks for the snowbanks to melt and the driveway to firm up.
We must have made a half-dozen trips to pick up items we’d left back at the Airstream and needed. The worst was Saturday when I was baking bread — well, I wasn’t really baking because I had the dough through the three rises, the oven up to temp, and realized that the bread tins were eight miles away in the rig. (Good preflight, as I love to say to others!)
I have a long list of items to fix, including the replacement of the refrigerator. I’m starting with a leaky shower hose and a leaky faucet unit in the kitchen sink. I picked up the parts today and will tackle the work in the morning. Much of this can wait but it will be nice to tweak things in case we want to do some early summer camping.
We’ll move the unit down to the only flat space on our property once we get completely unloaded and some of the major work finished. Nice to have it home safely.
