Do you use Google Reader?

Hi friends. If you’re following Jemimah’s journeys using Google Reader it’s time for a change! You probably already know that Google Reader is going away, so you know that you need to find a new way to follow your favorite blogs. The one I have decided on is Bloglovin’ – it is actually easier and has more features that Google Reader, so I’m very pleased with it.

Don’t lose track of Jemimah! Make sure you keep following when Google Reader goes away!

Jemimah’s getting some work done!

We discovered a leak. Uhoh! I was a bit concerned about what we would find in a 40-year-old, somewhat beaten up trailer when we removed the paneling. I was pretty sure that if we ever opened that Pandora’s box, we were going to discover that we had to replace all the beams and insulation. But…it was necessary to remove paneling to find the source of the leak, so down it came…


After all the paneling came down, Ken found that there were only 2 2x2’s with rotting ends. He replaced those in a jiffy, and sealed up the leaking spots. Whoohoo! Now we just have to get some insulation replaced and put the new paneling up. Yay!

My fabulously handy husband has also replaced the worst of the paneling in the bathroom, and removed the defunct bathtub. The bathroom is so bright now, and so much more roomy for a woman of generous proportions. I love it! We still have some cosmetics to fix – the old wallpaper needs to be completely removed, and we’re going to prime it and paint it all white – but this is such an improvement already!

We have always used the tub for sleeping bag storage, but now when we’re off camping and the sleeping bags are in their tents, there is nothing taking up MY space in the bathroom! If you’d like to take a peek back at what the bathroom looked like before you can click here. You’ll see that the damaged paneling the worst of the wallpaper are gone, as are the horrid curtain and the moss in the window frame (that you couldn’t see in the before picture).

Jemimah is getting ready for another jaunt – this weekend is the church’s second annual campout. We’re looking forward to it! Oh! And we’re eagerly awaiting a response from a Craigslist seller who might have the very refrigerator we need! I can’t wait to hear from him/her! I would so love to have a working fridge in the trailer!

I’m off to fix brunch, take the crew to the nursing home for a church service, then head off to our own church service. I’ll be back soon with more pictures of Jemimah’s redo, and maybe an update on the refrigerator.

We got to go camping!

Yay! We had to wait two extra weeks, but we finally were able to get out to our favorite spot at Charles Waters Campground.

We had a great time with our crew, Jenny and Phil and their 3 kids, Felice and her 2 girls, and our friend Kriss. I can’t wait to get out and do it again!
