Living the Simple Life

Camping in a trailer travel is the simple life. Simplicity is forced on you, because there isn't that much room to bring a whole lot of stuff. All the work that is associated with the upkeep of a home is tremendously reduced, which sets you free to enjoy other things, like knitting.

And when I'm not knitting, I'm usually outside enjoying nature. We like to put out seed for the song birds and a feeder for the hummers.

Nature hikes are fun too. There is always something to discover.

Then when I've had my fill of the outdoors, it's back to knitting.

  1. What a lovely post. A small home, whether on wheels or not, would be heaven. I saw that because I'm all worked up about cleaning, decluttering my home for guests. Love the socks!

  8. My dh & I will be taking our 5th wheel up to MN (from TX) the last half of September to visit our dd in Minneapolis, and friends in Duluth.

    Dh keeps asking me if I have 'this' or 'that' ready yet for the trailer. WHAT? I'm still working on the most important thing to go in there-my knitting projects! ;-Þ

    I LOVE that Supersocke Cotton yarn. It is so pretty!

  9. Rennagayle,

    The email address linked to your comment isn't working for me anymore.

    I think our next trailer will be a 5th wheel. We were checking out all the ones at the RV park on this trip.

    Have a safe and fun trip!
