Monday, December 23, 2019 I met Nathan out at River Song at 10:00 a.m. It had been a hard morning for me. Yesterday’s work really wore me out, making it difficult to sleep. I’d been really grumpy when I got up and yelled at my cat, Pepper Dog, to quit…View More Meeting with the Tree Trimmer
Sunday, December 22, 2019 For the past couple of weeks, we’ve pretty much had non-stop rain, including a record rainfall on Friday. It had finally stopped raining Saturday afternoon, and I took the opportunity to head out to River Song on Sunday. I didn’t really fell like it because I…View More A Record Rainfall
Saturday, November 30, 2019 It was a beautiful, but cold, day today. FH and I had planned to go camping, but I chickened out. The temps are well below freezing, and the pipes in my tiny home almost froze last night. It was also really foggy. I really wasn’t prepared…View More Down by the River
Saturday, November 16, 2019 FH was bored, so I invited him to come out and spend the day at River Song. I had found the perfect spot to build a “shed” the previous weekend, and I wanted to get back out there again and clear out more deadfall. This was…View More The Hippie and the Engineer

Friday, June 21, 2019 It’s been almost a month since I first saw that little piece of property overlooking the river, and I’ve been thinking about it every day. Every time I compare the positives with the negatives, the positives win. Every. Single. Time. Negatives: It’s on a busy highway.…View More I Did It!
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 RV and I finally met up! It had taken several weeks, but we finally got together to look at the property on the river. I hadn’t been able to get this little place off my mind, and I was eager to see it again. I had…View More A Second Look
Saturday, May 25, 2019 I’ve always wanted my own place on the water. Ideally, it would be a house built on the edge of a rocky cliff overlooking the ocean, with my own private little sandy beach down below. I’d have the best of both worlds: a front-row view of…View More A River Runs Through It
