We are back in Georgia. Well, actually we’ve been here since the first of April but we haven’t been blogging much. Honestly, there’s not much to say.
While we’re happy to be back for awhile to see friends and our daughter, it kind of feels like we’re just doing our time until the next adventure.
I’ve been working and traveling, as usual, but it just feels strange to be back. I guess it’s because of being in such a familiar place. For the last 16 months we’ve been living in unfamiliar places, meeting new people, and exploring.
We are staying in a cute little cabin on Lake Allatoona in Acworth, GA. As you can see, the area is beautiful. This is the view from our back deck.
Daisy has learned a new game. She can drop her ball off the deck and it rolls all the way down the hill into the water. The first time, I let her go get it. Yuck! Won’t do that again. The difference in the amount of traffic, in the short time we’ve been gone, is astonishing! Maybe it’s just because we’ve been living in more laid back, smaller communities. I’m not sure but I would swear that everyone moved to Georgia as soon as we left.
In 10 days, we head to Ocean Springs, MS. Until then, we have a few more favorite places to eat and some friends to see. I’m sure we’ll have more adventures to share very soon.
It’s been a few days since our last post. It’s been kind of a whirlwind since we got here to Acworth, GA. We’re staying in a small cabin on Lake Allatoona in Acworth, Georgia at a place called Holiday Marina Harbor. It’s kind of nice back here. Quiet and nobody has knocked on the door to let us know of all the rules we’re breaking. It’s not a 5 star resort back here, but it’s clean, comfortable and peaceful. The rear of the cabin overlooks Lake Allatoona.
Unfortunately, we haven’t been outside much. The weather has turned very cold, so staying inside is a much better experience. Jodi has had the time and convenient location to see several of her customers and I’ve been busy getting things ready for the next trip down to Florida. Part of that preparation included four new tires on the jeep. I would have rather not spent that money, but we have been saving for auto related repairs in the budget. So all is well.
We’re ready to find some warmer weather for a while. But, I’m sure we’ll be complaining about the heat and humidity soon enough. We’ve also dumped a few things from our load that we found we didn’t need with us. I made the trip to our storage unit that is nearby today to put those items on standby for now. Maybe we’ll need them later. If not they’ll probably be donated at some point in the future.
