Ingredients of My New Beginning...

Things are getting easier to deal with. I still don't have a job, but continue to look. I acquired a 1966 Airstream Overlander to live in. She (I named her Cher) landed in the side yard of the house I grew up in. My dad, his dog and one older brother still live in it... so I guess you can go home...
Fred (my dog) and I are content in Cher. She needs a good bit of work: some floor repair, then a bamboo click-down floor. Prior to that though... I got tired of only having my bunk to sit on, so I started tearing out the front gaucho (which was missing all of its upholstery).
I had ordered a cute convertable sofa/lounge and bought a rug. Turned out cute I think. I still need to remove the front freshwater tank and pump (Cher will be a stationary live in so I won't need it), so I can push the sofa back further to gain a bit more living room.
Both arms of the sofa fold down, which will come in handy as a second bunk, since I'm going to take out one of the twin bunks so I can have a "studio" space for art. She also needs some new vent covers to stave off some leaks, new appliances and other work. I'll have her gypsied up soon enough.

  1. How fun and creative! A unique place to live for sure!

  2. Dianne, I think Cher is amazing! She is bright and beautiful and bold.

  3. Oh what a wonderful place Cher is already Dianne!
    Very happy that you'll have some art space ... excited for you and hope the job situation goes well for you too.

    Take Care
