Friday, we left for Kentucky to pick up our Tiffin motorhome! How could such a short ride turn into such a looooong ride? Anticipation?
Saturday morning, we pulled into the dealer's lot and was greeted by our new home on wheels. All the basement doors were open showing a spic and span basement. Ohhhh that storage. When we walked inside, I said to John "welcome home!" What a blessing!
We love the extra room, but were surprised with the task of making everything fit. Having slides changes the storage space in some of the cabinets. We made a few adjustments and gave a bit more away to make everything fit.
Early Monday morning we were awakened to the thrump, thrump, thrump of a helicopter. John said that he thought he had heard the sounds of a crash earlier. Sure enough, at the end of the drive to the dealers lot there was a head-on crash involving a pickup truck and a smaller compact car.

I called the dealer yesterday and they reported that he is improving - slowly. Another blessing.
It took us a total of four long, hard days to move and arrange everything. In those four days, John totally abused his body and has paid the price since then. Each day his condition improves. But we learned a big lesson. John cannot do the things that he used to do.
|The Colts plate will come later|
He was so tired that he could only put the plate on the back of the Tiffin and he left our Indianapolis Colts plate that rides on the front of the motorhome in the place of honor for a later time.

As you can see, Olivia likes riding in her new home.
Both dogs are a bit miffed though. In the Winnebago, they rode on the Dashboard. No more dangerous traveling.
Oliver says since he is the elder, he should ride on Mom's legs as she knits.
Occasionally, both ride on my lap and the knitting is put aside.
Since we have been back in the Indianapolis area, we have rested and awaited the outcome of the biopsy. Today, we were given the diagnosis of...... NO CANCER! Another blessing.
On a lighter note, you can see that Oliver's younger sister, Olivia is not
a beggar. She just sits behind John with her chin on his shoulder and waits to see if he sneaks a treat to her when mom is not looking.
As you can see in this photo, there is still much arranging to be done. Much of it is fiber that is waiting to be spun. But this will wait for a few days. We are delivering pounds and pounds of llama fleece to a processing mill in Wisconsin that will wash, card and spin all the fiber into yarn to be sold on the internet.
From Wisconsin, we will head to South Dakota to establish residency, title our motorhome, and get our South Dakota driver's license.
We will probably spend Thanksgiving in South Dakota. For the first time, we will not have any family to share our Thanksgiving dinner. That is going to be strange.
Our prayer of thankfulness will be long this year. From John coming from death's door to his recovery and our full time living in our new motorhome. What else could we be blessed with! Absolutely nothing.
It is time that we share our abundant blessings with others.
Oh! by the way, we closed on the sale of our condo Tuesday.
Until next time....
Abundant blessings to you.... God is so good!
