So nice to be home.......

I am home. We've been camping for the last 3 weeks and fishing. Hubby is fishing twice a day. Five a.m. and then he goes out again at around 3 or 4 in the afternoon and comes in around 8 or 9. A little much for me. Thankfully we have friends there so the guys go fishing and we stay in camp. I brought my quilting with me to work on in the RV but I reached a point where I needed more room so I packed it all up and gathered the laundry as well as the lists of things I needed at the store and from home and Chloe and I came home for a few days respite. So nice to be home. So quiet too without the TV going all the time. I love my husband dearly, but what he likes to watch on TV and what I like to watch are totally different. I got a lot accomplished yesterday. I went to the store and bought some paint and started painting the trim on the windows in our living room and dining room. It really needed it. I looks great. I will do the second coat today. We hadn't painted them since the windows were framed in because our cats are always walking on the sills. Since the cats are in the motor home with my hubby I figured, now is the time.

I am getting ready to go in and work on the quilt now. I made another table topper for a friend of mine for her birthday next month. I am in the process of quilting it now. It's about 1/3 done then I need to put the binding on and it's finished. I really am loving quilting.

I haven't been eating very well the last few weeks. Too much snacking. And I haven't been getting my exercise in either. So this morning I am going to the gym for a much needed workout. I just thought............I am taking a vacation from my vacation. Hmmmmmm!

It does feel so good to be home! I especially enjoy being home alone, I can get so much done!

I do that every week...camp and then home. It's great to have the best of both worlds. That is the glory of a camper. I get the laundry done and things at home then go back again. Glad your hubby has his fishing to enjoy and that you have your quilting. I hope your summer continues to be a good one.

I am glad you enjoyed being away but as you say, it is nice to be home. Hubby and I like the same things on t.v. so no problems there.

Welcome back Kathy!
Missed you! Love your new profile pix....you look so YOUNG (not that you aren't!). Good for you for taking a vacation from your vacation and for doing what you want to do...afterall, it's YOUR vacation!
And, yes, when my daughter and I travel together, we have one suitcase for shoes! It always causes quite a ruckus with DH and DS!!
Enjoy your time!
Onward!

It sounds like you're having a good time, having the best of both worlds... and with the cats out camping, what a perfect time to do the window sills!

I seriously miss fishing, but my other half always turns it into such a production that I avoid going unless I have a good book with me.
