Last Day House Sitting

Well tomorrow l pack up what little l've unpacked and move back into the van.

I have been house sitting for two weeks and it was a busy two weeks.  I've built the home owner a pond, and l renovated my van, and worked my regular shifts at my job.

And of course, all the regular stuff that comes with owning a home, l've cut the grass twice, water the gardens daily, put out the garbage and recycling on the appropriate days, gathered the mail, perused the newspapers that have been delivered (a rare treat since l don't get newspapers delivered to the van <grin>), did laundry and hung it on the line (only my laundry, so no biggy), fixed the recycle bin for the homeowner, and watched a total of 3 hours of mind numbing TV.

I also won't miss this........

Summer construction on the 401 Highway in Toronto.  Who wants to sit in bumper to bumper traffic at 11 pm at night?  Not me!!!!

I don't miss home ownership.  Living in my van l don't have to cut grass, water plants or wait for garbage day since any ol'garbage can will do (Wal-mart, Ikea, gas stations).

Oh, did l's three months Rent Free today!!!  Whoot Whoot!!!!!


  1. Sounds wonderful Tammy. Nice to have a break from life to confirm wonderful life is :)

  2. Variety is spicy, isn't it? It's good to get back to home, whatever "home" is to us. Especially when it doesn't have a yard.


    1. Variety is a spice best served 'fresh'. I'm liking the freedom from the yard.

  3. Now you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Home sweet home.

  4. Great job!!!!! I have the same van and have been pondering changes. Painting was out of the question (at least in my mind). I like the way yours turned out so well I think I've been converted.

    Thanks for sharing,
