Well it sure feels weird and wonderful 
to be without a fixed address for a while!
The house sold today, we are stationed in a small rv park
by a gentle river, and the house search continues 
from here.

The French Canadian family closest to us have 2 boys around
ten and twelve. No mother.
They like Lucy dog and were all wide-eyed
when I told them we’d been hunting frogs by the water.
They didn’t know they were there.
(Reggie cat is living with a friend until we find a house).

I’m working on another free pattern
There will be many shapes around this gray blackbird
but I will stitch all in black—
except for an orange pumpkin.
A very Fall-y look I trust.

Lunch today was garlic scapes cooked in
olive oil with preserved lemon and salt,
served over rice and a side of bacon.
I’m trying to get creative with all the veggie 
CSA boxes we get— 8 per month!!! 
I think we may have to share with the rv park soon.

Our book club is reading Outline by Rachel Cusk.
She is a talented author, no doubt,
but I was more in the mood for an adventure
thank a character/s study.
Any recommendations for our next book?

Nap time in the rv....
There’s rest to catch up with after days of cleaning
and moving and signing papers.
And the 71 degree temps and cool breeze
make it ideal♥️

Cannot wait to see the finish of your stitching. Good luck eating all those veggies. Janice

Will you share the source of your pattern, please.

That looks like the perfect place to relax, too hot and crowded here.
Wondering stitchery and a nice activity in a camper.

Congratulation on selling the house. I hope you find the perfect house that you are looking for. Love the stitching.
I never used garlic scapes or onion scapes. I usually just left them in the garden. I'll be using them next time.
Hugs, Julia

lunch sounds good and your stitching is wonderful. I think it would be find to be in the rv for awhile anyway good for you now you have time to house hunt.

I love all veggies but had never heard of garlic or onion scapes. Did a google search and now know what they are. So now when my garlic starts growing sprouts from the top I know they can be useful.

Your pup is beautiful, what breed is it?

And hope you find your dream home soon. But until then think of travel and some savings in the process. Also this is an adventure which came at a particular time in your life when you wanted a change. So you are driving around in your temporary house until you find the permanent one. said...

Scapes make a great pesto too. Lucy is a Scottish terrier. Getting old and grouchy. And thanks for the well wishes! An additional plus is that New Brunswick is giving 20% rebate for provincial travel! Yay said...

It is good fun. We got a dose of tight quarters with the rain yesterday but it’s mostly good said...

Thanks Julia! Yes houses are getting snatched up too quickly. It’s a weird market said...

It’s quiet and the atmosphere lazy♥️ said...

Hmmm I’m having trouble locating its origin this morning.I took a photo of it to use. If you Send me your email and I’ll attach the pattern. said...

Thanks! We’re starting to share the veggies. My skin is turning orange.

Well, congrats on the sale...and I think your patience in waiting to find the "right" house is truly admirable. Wishing you luck in that respect....and, until then, enjoy the adventure you are living. Looks like a wonderfully serene place to be. I, too, would love to know the source for the pattern....of course it's intriguing to me. I would also be interested in your last one you posted done in blue. I loved that as well!! (Someday I will find my needle again...for now, I am still hooking LOL....) Hope your week is off to a good start! ~Robin~
