The other day I took the garbage up to the garbage can, what is normally about a two minute walk, and ten minutes later I finally arrived … I had to stop and chat along the way 🙂 When I used to walk around our neighbourhood at home I would never find people to talk to, they just walked by with a greeting or a nod. Now this life isn’t for everyone but I love living in a park where people are out and always up for a quick, and sometimes not so quick, chat. Of course it is even better that this is December and people are outside and not bundled up inside like they would be at home!
Hubby has been busy over the last week working on our Christmas gift to each other, and yes I’m going to reveal what it is before Christmas … shhh don’t tell Santa 😀
Seven years of living full time in Maxx has taken a toll on the furniture. Let’s face it RV furniture isn’t meant to be used 365 days a year (with an extra day for the leap year in 2016) for seven years,. After a lot of trying at home with no success we were pleased (other than the exchange rate) to have finally found a place in Yuma to replace the foam and recover our sofa bed and two chairs … and they will do it while we are home for Christmas!
So for the past week hubby has carefully pulled back the upholstery on the furniture and beefed up everything underneath.
Once he was done he put the upholstery back in place and WOW is our furniture solid.
Yesterday morning we dropped it all off at Active RV Upholstery Centre in the Arizona Marketplace and when we return after Christmas we will pick it up and hopefully be incredibly pleased with the quality of our Christmas present 🙂
We head up to Palm Desert tomorrow … and yup another visit with hubby’s cousin and his wife, they are going to be so sick of us … for our flight home on Tuesday. So last night and tonight we will sit on our outdoor chairs and imagine how our furniture will look when we pick it up after Christmas.
Until next time …
