This wasn’t where I meant to be this weekend. I meant to be at home dusting off my workbench in order to begin working on some new jewelry designs for my Etsy shop. But rather, sweet friends of ours phoned us up and invited us to come and visit with them at their cozy cabin in the woods near Crystal Mountain. Needless to say, a trip to the cabin propelled the idea of silversmithing to the curb-and I was very okay with that. I was, as a matter of fact, in need of a snow fix and boy, did Miss Mother Nature deliver ♥
After a long walk through the snowy woods, I tucked Oliver into a cozy blanket on the sofa to help warm him up while I pondered what to prepare for dinner. I’m not sure if you feel the same, but I take great pleasure from cooking a wholesome meal in a new kitchen — a new space. It’s one of my favorite things to do in any new place we visit.
. . . and after a day spent outdoors and supper in the oven, Oliver and I sat down to ponder over a few things while we waited for the boys to return back down from the mountain.
First and foremost, I could absolutely, no question at all — happily live in this cute little cabin, forever. These thoughts come to me when I find peaceful places I visit — that I just want to stay in that moment and be there forever. For example, I absolutely wouldn’t mind living in the Airstream forever, and living on the boat forever and living in the San Juan Islands forever and living in my Suncadia condo forever, or my other cabin in the woods, forever. One extreme to another I say, but roll it all up in a nutshell and I have a glorious life with all of these options just waiting for me. For us. For my little family and let me say just one thing, options like these are wonderful (and make no mistake, this girl is grateful, deeply grateful right down to her core).
Speaking of my Airstream: I MISS MY HER. Terribly. Even though she sits in our driveway at home, I miss hitching her up and towing her all over this glorious country of ours. But thankfully we have a trip coming up in a short while that will cure this dreadful aluminum fever I have been suffering from.
Blogging. Hard to believe I have been blogging here on J5MM for seven years now and with Go RVing going into my third year!
I was wondering, if you wouldn’t mind, helping me out? Here is my question for YOU! ::
“What would you like to see me blog about in 2017 (for GoRVing and even here on J5MM)?”
Go RVing has asked me to deliver up some recipe ideas as well as blog topics–four recipes and four blog posts.
Can you help me?
Because, quite frankly, I’m stuck and have run out of ideas. I need some INSPIRATION ♥ and who better than to ask but YOU!
Oh and before I forget, if you didn’t know that I blog for GoRVing you can see all my posts I have ever done for them here:
Thank you for being here,
