Our days in the Tin Can have come to an end. After nearly 5 adventurous months of RV life we have settled ourselves inside brick and mortar walls once more. It is mid December now, Christmas is almost here and the new year is fast approaching.
A new “user name” has emerged and you will now find us associated with acottagefull as a reflection of where we are now dwelling. Let’s recap shall we? acabinfull, acastlefull, agardenfull and now we fill the cottage. Always evolving, that’s me (us). I will surely miss all the adventure.Our new cottage is very small and very old. We find comfort in these two phases: “It’s cozy” and “It will do”. The cottage is a new adventure in living on less. Although not off the grid, we plan to downsize and minimize our living as much as possible in this new chapter of our lives. It is amazing how stuff creeps in on you and the busy (sometimes very unnecessary) things in life rob you of your peace, time AND money. I am finding myself actually using the “B” word more and more often and that is NOT at all like me. Budget. I have loathed that word for years, but now I am coming to terms.
In the past few of months, two of my grandbabies has completed their year long journey around the sun and growing bigger and cuter everyday!

My firstborn also had a birthday, 28 years, I stand amazed… I don’t feel like the mother of a 28 year old, I don’t feel much like a grandmother either for that matter. My mommy used to tell me that we never change. Our skin wrinkles and we look old but on the inside we are still the same. I believe this now, it has happened to me. My view of the elderly has changes so much since I was 28. I have more admiration, more patience, more empathy and more love. This is what experience give us.
