There are plans in the works for our big move (6 weeks for me) that I’m getting pretty excited about!
I have 2 possible job options, both seasonal, but would give me until the Fall to find something different. Both sound equally appealing, I will be happy with whomever will hire me. Both would hopefully start in March/April.
My mom has also found us 2 possible homes! Both are owned by her landlord, one a funky downtown apartment (that will probably be rented by someone else) and one a “fixer-upper” two bedroom house! The house came as a bit of a surprise, as Mr. Gaunt and I have major down-sizing plans. However this house offers an entirely different set of perks than anything we have lived in before. Like a huge fenced yard with a nice big shop! The yard even has garden beds already built. It is also in need of repairs, which would give Mr. Gaunt and I the freedom to kind of make it our own. It’s not a for sure thing, but I’m getting all excited at the ideas and plans for the summer.
Here are a few things I would like to do this summer:
-Grow our own Veggies! (and flowers)
-BBQ every night that we could (we have owned a BBQ for 2 years now, never taken it out of the box)
-Go for walks around the neighborhood
-Have parties in the yard (might need to hunt out some patio furniture at Garage Sales)
-Drink more (I know this seems like a very funny goal, but I NEVER drink these days and I miss it)
-Dry my clothes on the line (woop such an eco friendly thing)
-Make sun tea
-Attempt to buy local and organic all summer long
-Eat more fish
-Learn how to use public transportation (I know, Im lame)
-Mow a lawn (not joking, Ive never done this)
-Go to a you pick berry farm
-Float the river
-Finish planning my wedding
Eeek such good feelings about all of this! Come on good stuff! Very Very Pumped! Now if mom would just email me photos!
I love this!! 🙂 My brother in law is moving out of his 2 bedroom house in the county and into his Westfalia van to do some traveling and photography. He’s gonna keep all of his stuff from the house in a storage unit and slowly get rid of it. So if you guys get here and move into the house and need anything let me know. He has a mower, weed eater and furniture.
I can’t wait to see you in just a few very short weeks! Let us know if we can help with the moving process or antyhing!
You just made me miss home.
My favorite: the u pick berry farm.
There aren’t many in soCal.
