Entry 3: Opening Weekend, A Clean Sweep.


  So this is the first weekend of our season in Maine, time to open the redneck estate, take down the wall braces, clean up after the winter and spring storms, clean up the French trash better known to you as debris.

 After we open up the next task for us will be sorting things in the camp so that we can live there full time, some stuff is going to have to go to make room for our regular clothing and the like..

 The camp we have was never meant to be occupied full time it was designed as a weekend getaway and a vacation spot, it is rough, in fact you have heard of the magazine Better Homes and Gardens, well this place got the centerfold layout in the sister magazine called Better Homes and Hovels, but we will soon be calling it home for the next 4 months.

With clean up going well and damage repairs under way our next move is to get to the closets town open a P.O. Box at the post office so we have a place for our mail

. . . And Then . . .

to find a bank and open up an account as a resident of Maine. Things are getting real folks. I can almost hear the dueling banjos.

That is it for this exciting entry tune in next time, y’all come back now y’hear

I appreciate the kind words Andi Make no bones about it it is scary and completely out of my comfort zone, but life has a finny way of zigging when you expect a zag. I have lost so many friend this past year, that I am rolling with it. As far as you go, even the smallest change can improve life, that little tid-bit I am learning myself...You go Girl!
