Camping, with toilet and shower.

Austin, TX is fantastic, I just can’t say enough about this Capitol city.  Austin is an island surrounded by Texas.  The Tex Mex food is amazing, lots of wonderful sites to see, and the winter weather is marvelous in the high 60s low 70s.  My big news, I will be working a part-time holiday job at a locally owned Ace hardware store.  Full-filling another retirement dream and bucket list goal — working in a hardware store!

Breed & Company is more than just hardware.  There is an amazing housewares section, which is where I will be.  Every kitchen gadget, a full bridal and fine china section, linens, Christmas stuff, baby stuff, and a garden section; just lots of wonderful stuff.  I’ll be posting pictures as soon as I start.

It isn’t Fragers, my favorite D.C. place to shop.  Breed & Company is much, much more!  Good thing I am living in Scout.  Otherwise I would be tempted to buy kitchen stuff, because my friends know how much I love gadgets!

Stocking Scout and organizing clothes into my very small area is coming along nicely, so I will be posting pictures soon!

After a lovely stay and Thanksgiving meal with friend Ruth. img_3412 Maggie and I are camped out at Emma Long Metropolitan Park, a hill-top campground with a beautiful lake.  Unfortunately, for Maggie there are terrible stickers in the grass.  Tonight I backed-in to our #11 camp site, with the help of a fellow camper.  I will be staying in Austin until after the new year, and then decide on my route.  East or West?

  1. Totally jazzed about the hardware job for you!! Austin is really great….and we almost moved there in 1992. But it is an island in the middle of Texas!

  2. After years of camping inVW Vanagons, that was basically Sally’s statement too. She wanted an indoor potty and shower. Well, she didn’t turn down the Microwave and TV either!
    Sounds like your doing well!!

  3. Sounds like you’re having a wonderful time . Working for a short stretch in home furnishings could be fun! Brian and I are leaving Thursday for a month in Hawaii. Your tiny home experience sounds good. I’m thinking I’d like a tiny home on Harding lake and the getting out of Alaska for the winter.
