A New Life -Style demands…….

A new life style demands change, a new mind set, new goals and maybe even a new persona.

So far I have done a few things to help me make the changes despite the odds I’m faced with. My  GIGI experience has helped me see myself from another perective. Yes, I’m an old  lady but relativly well, no major health problems health wise to worry me, I could be in better shape, I need to try to be stronger and walk more but who doesn’t? My income is small but adequate as long as I respect it and don’t spend foolishly, but……..

I need  new pants to go with my new persona, and other stuff too, poco a poco won’t do it because I’ll forget the plan and go back to old ways of seeing myself.  For the past 10-15 years I’ve was who I needed to be then, but this is now and I have a whole new opportunity to express myself in different ways, and red is my new best friend……..

Pants are here and I love them but they are very thin and need to be hand washed, no problem,  I haven’t tried them on yet because I have a huge mess in  the kitchen which leaks over into other spaces leaving little space to try on clothes.

I’m working on my kitchen space and removing  old cault, not an easy project because this is really old cault but I did it, I think it will be okay when I repace the new clean caulk.  I pulled off the paper I’d applied poorly and plan to paint white.  After cleaning this up the reality is that just cleaning it doesn’t look so bad but now I want to update the sink and faucets.  If it wasn’t so windy I would run out to get new sink and faucets, modernize my space a bit.  But it’s really ugly outside very  windy again and showers off and on. I wonder how difficult it is to do this myself  or with my friend  Robert or Becca., and how expensive.  Remove the old and install the new, I’d like to have one large sink instead of two side by side, more practical for doing any art projects where you need the space.

you know what, I think I’ll leave this project as is for now because it will be easier to paint without the sink in, this may be a several days project, that’s okay, now to put back everything I moved.

Soon it will be warm enough to get out of sweats and into  my harem pants  I should buy some fabric and try sewing these myself.  i could do that.

A neighber came by, we were talking about the fact that we don’t have water today, they’re working on the sewer  problem…You don’t want to know, anyway he was telling me about a product to clean and wax the RV.  He probably noticed that GIGI needs care, it’s not a secret, this product washes and waxes in one step, gotta get me some of that to get started on GIGI’s renewal before the big facelift starts.

by the way included in one of the pants packages was a string bracelet I’ve been telling my sister she should make  as all the cool folks wear them. Now I do too, cool a colorful string  tired to my wrist, I like it.

til later….

An ACupuncture RX plus more Red Paint

I’ve given an acupuncture treatment for painful swollen knees for a friend here in the park. I know this will help her because when I treat my own knees I feel better and can climb stairs quickly, sometimes without having to go one stair at a time. Yesterday she couldn’t bear weight, today she can.

Finally the winds have died down this morning so I’m going to town to do my errands before they start up again.

Walmart had Cadbury candies out for Easter, the Easter bunny doesn’t stop here….I don’t think so, I got a little over excited and bought a lot of mini eggs. Yum

I did some painting today in red. I painted Jose’s table, I removed the paper and it looks great, much better the plywood took the paint just fine and I sprayed a gloss finish, I’m happy with it.

I also painted the cabinets above and below the fridge black, instead of red or white or purple all colors that I tried first. I painted them black because the fridge has black edges so I think they fit in better this way, I used craft paints and will give them another coat of my good black paint tomorrow. Red and black are a favorite combination for me, and I’ve used it liberally here in GiGi.

I’ve repurposed a three tired wire basket that fell down in the ‘kitchen to use in my bathroom and spray painted it with teal to match the mirrors in my barely turnaroundable bathroom. Right now my shower is full of my supplies for my various projects which I move from here to there hoping one day I will have used them all up and I’m finished with my projects, that will never happen I know, there will always be something to fix or change and I’m good with that.

loving my red!

My old RV on my small budget doesn’t compare to those I see on the various fb pages, but I still like mine the best because it’s all about me and who I am, and who I am is a really old lady on the road wondering what the heck I’m doing and can I really tow my toad down the road? I’ll need to get a trailer for it I’m told, sounds like another expense I’ll have to plan for.

Yikes!
