The trailer!

Well, a bunch of people have been asking to see more pictures of the trailer, so this morning I made a little video to show you where we are and how we are living. When we were at St. Malo the other day, Marc said that we could go camping in the campground there, to which I replied, “Isn’t that what we’re doing in Otterburne?!” I was kidding, of course. The place really is great. I’d forgotten how convenient it is to eat in your kitchen. You don’t have toย carry dishes so far and constantly leave the room every time someone forgets a fork or needs juice. In the winter we may wish for (more heat in the kitchen — apparently it’s pretty cold in there) a bit more space, but I have lots of ideas for diversions. And, of course, within a couple hours of doing this video Marc went through the piles of stuff and the boxes by the computer, making it look a lot more finished. Now if we could finish up in the entry way and clear off the cedar chest, we’d be good to go. Almost… Enjoy! (Sorry for the two inside videos. I got it all uploaded before I realized that we had to combine two videos. Grrrr!!!)

Olivia was watching that last clip with me and when we got to the master bedroom she said, “Mommy, that’s your room. That’s not den of love.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    aw, the first and third video are marked as “private” videos, so I can’t watch them! but the middle one was good. holy that IS small! even by my standards! I still like the idea though ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. There, Collette, I fixed the other two. Now you can see the rest!

    I grew up in a trailer just like this till I was 7 yrs old and there were three children and my parents and many many many mice!

    I think it looks cozy and the kids seem to be adjusting well.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Thanks for the tour! Looks great with lots of Dixie touches!

  7. I avoided trailer living, my folks spent the last years of their lives in a single wide parked on a high school campus where they provided a security presence. I loved your videos, and I guess am most surprised with how very rural it looks, how can you not enjoy such peace and quiet and to be in a stimulating learning
    environment.

    I need to learn how to use You tube embedding. O, and by the way, the issue of preaching too long came up today and I joked that it was not the main points but my meanderings that got me in trouble. I thought of you guys.

    Blessings, Don ps. have not stopped by the office to check the book yet, do you need a hebrew lexicon eventually.

  8. Lisa says:

    Thanks Dix! I appreciated seeing your new place. Remember small homes means there’s less to clean and more time to get cozy (like in the den of love!!:)) In 5 years or so you guys can look back on these days and appreciate all the things you’ll have then.

    And if you ever get bored, remember there’s always road trips!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Dixie says:

    Yes, this place seems like it will lend itself nicely to many roadtrips. I think we’ve only stayed home without leaving Otterburne for 1 maybe 2 days in the 15 days we’ve been here. So much to explore. I’ve decided we’re going to go to Kenora, On for a night or two once the leaves change, and we’re so close to the US border, once we get the kids’ passports, we can see lots of things in the States too. I’m very excited.

    Thanks for the tour Dixie.

  11. Lauralea says:

    Ah, yes. Welcome to life in The Field. Looks good.
    : )

  12. Toni says:

    Thanks for the videos, Dixie – you’ve fitted things in really well.

  13. Jyl says:

    Yay! I’m so happy to have had a peek into your new home! Thanks for posting these!

    If you want a great place to stay year round(not quite as far as Kenora), check out Falcon Trails resort in the Whiteshell (not Falcon Lake Resort Hotel). Mark and I have stayed in a few cabins there in summer, fall and winter and just love it! I think we may even take the kids there for Christmas this year…nothing like snow gently falling on the trees while you are snug in your pine cabin, lighting a fire and making hot chocolate! ahhh…
