Trying Times

I never would have dreamed it would be so hard to buy a couple of acres of land. We have been looking and looking and looking, to no avail.
Every time we find a spot that looks perfect, turns out there is a problem, too much land, not enough land, floods in spring, to close to water, to far away from water, and on and on and on.
We have decided on a builder ( I think ) and a floor plan. 

This is my favorite floorplan, you have garage for the car and rv and cozy living space.

Thinking of adding a loft, since the ceiling will be so high, great place for storage.
We are thinking we would be outside most of the time anyway, so I would want to expand the patio area.
If we could find the two acres we need!  I just don't see it happening this year. The summer is almost over.
The only thing we can do is keep looking.

43 years, oh my

We celebrated our forty third wedding anniversary last week.  We decided to have a night on the town.
 I don't understand why buy we never go into the city (Chicago) when we are home.  When we travel we are always out and about visiting different restaurants, museums and shows. But here at home hardly ever.
We went to the Apollo Theatre  to see The Million Dollar Quartet. 

It was a sweet little theatre in the Lincoln Park district of the city.  We had great seats and enjoyed it so much. 
Before the show we went to a great Italian restaurant nearby Sapori Trattoria.

It was a great evening and I hope we don't wait another year to do it again.

Rain,rain go away......

I swear it has been raining ever since we got home.  Thunderstorms, humidity, yuck, yuck, yucky weather.  Where was our spring? We went straight to hot, humid summer.  
I thought about doing a recap of some of the places we spent time this past winter, but I think I will start fresh with what's going on now. And I promise I will try to be a better blogger going forward.  
FYI I did update the other blogs with resorts we stayed at and restaurants we visited.

I do have something to get excited about. Our niece is getting married in PA. on July 13. After that we are going to Traverse City , MI for two weeks.  It will be good to get on the road again.  I love living in the motor-coach!   The wedding is going to be so much fun, my sisters and their families are also going. We have rented an entire B&B for two nights and everyone (except Jay and I ) are going to stay there.
I think it will be like one big pajama party!  

We only get to see my two nieces and their babies once a year at best. Both of them have boys, two and one, and they are adorable.  I hate that they live so far away. They post lots of pictures and videos on facebook, which is great, but it is not enough, they are growing up so fast. 

We are looking for land, but so far no luck. It will happen, I know it will. God will lead us to a place and it will happen when it is supposed to.  I have told J I will be willing to stay at one of the yucky places around here while we look if he just wanst to go ahead and sell the house now. 

There are lots of things we have to figure out, one being a mail forwarding service. I have to do some research, I don't have it figured out yet. 

But let's face it, of all the problems we could be facing at this point in our life, mail forwarding is a very small thing.

Hope you have a good week, hope it stops raining.
