LOCATION: In our “tiny house” in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Delightfully cool. High 75
We spent the day busily unpacking and unloading Joy. I cleaned all the shelves in the house before re-stocking them.
George did some work on Joy, our Airstream. She performed well on this 5-month road trip!
Our yard has turned into a jungle! Everything needs to be weeded and trimmed back. While I was working on the vines on the fence in our backyard, I felt some bites. Yikes! My feet were covered with fire ants. I had stepped right on top of one of their hills. Ouch!!!
George was weeding the front area, and suddenly he came running into the house to get an ice cube. A big wasp had taken a chunk out of his hand when he put his hand in to pull some weeds.
A few residents chatted with us from afar. We are doing a self-quarantine for 1-2 weeks to make sure we have not brought Covid 19 with us, and to protect residents here. We are certain we are Covid-free, as I had a test during our trip, and we have no symptoms. We have been away from people most of the time, only interacting with others outdoors, and social distancing. So, I won’t be swimming or doing yoga for awhile. Darn!
We were full-timer RVers for about 5 years, then built this “tiny house” in south Texas in 2018. We live here a few months each year when we are not traveling in Joy or not housesitting. Texas is a BIG state, and we are about as far south as you can get. The WALL is about 1/2 mile from our house.
DINNER: I am trying to use up all the frozen goods we have in the trailer’s freezer, and will start fresh. So, tonight was a bit boring…..frozen tuna burgers in a pita with tzatziki. Side was steamed mixed vegetables.
