Getting ready for second floor - Érik a második emelet :)

It's been a while since I wrote anything here, but the life hasn't stopped...only for a couple of days at Thanksgiving:) How interesting it is that "big things" always happen when we are about to go somewhere (summer vacation, trip to San Diego and now our traditional Thanksgiving family get-together). Before we headed out to Half Moon Bay the last Tuesday morning, the big crane arrived and all the big beams were put up on top of the first floor. So now the workers can start working up there...The house is getting higher and higher...I'm afraid we're going to block the view from the neighbors :) But we'll have the best view in the neighborhood. I can picture myself sitting on the balcony and enjoying the great panoramic view of the mountains...But we're not there yet...:) 

Egy ideje nem irtam a blogra, de az élet nem állt meg azóta sem...csak egy pár napra, Hálaadáskor. Milyen érdekes, hogy a "nagy dolgok" (értsd: látványos:-) mindig akkor történnek, amikor éppen útrakelünk valahova (nyári vakáció, San Diego-i kirándulás, vagy most a Hálaadás napi családi összejövetel). Mielőtt múlt kedd reggel elindultunk volna Half Moon Bay-be, megérkezett a nagy daru, ami beemelte az összes gerendát, ami a második emelethez kell, igy a munkások el tudnak kezdeni dolgozni fent. A ház kezd egyre magasabb lenni...Attól tartok el fogjuk takarni a kilátást a szomszédok elől:) Viszont nekünk lesz a legklasszabb kilátásunk. El tudom magam képzelni, ahogy ülök az erkélyen, és elvezem a hegyek panorámáját....Na de még nem tartunk ott...:)

We've moved in!! Beköltöztünk! :)

I can hardly believe that - even if it's still not official - we're in the house! I am way behind with posts, but here I am:) So I left off with some photos of the kitchen and master bedroom. As soon as we put a bed in the master bedroom around early September 2014, we could finally move in. It felt like being newly weds, with just a bed and a chest of drawers there, but we were happy campers to sleep in a king size bed! :)
Along with that I could also start using a bigger bathroom. Wayne figured it out that the propane tank could actually be hooked up on the gas line, so we had hot water in the bathroom.
Since then we've finished the railings on both balconies, and some touch-up work in the kids' bathroom.
My happiest moment, however, was when I could move in the kitchen! It happened in early January 2015. Oh boy, how long I had been waiting for that moment!
Now I'm a happy owner of a nice, big kitchen. Some touch-up work still has to be done, but there's n…

What is it like to live in a motorhome? Milyen is egy lakókocsiban lakni?

Since it takes a few days for the concrete to dry, I thought to "take a brake" and show you around in our little, cozy motor home :) Though Wayne is an expert when it comes to living or traveling in a motorhome, I had no idea what it was like, until we first were "introduced" to this guy. It's a 1985 36' Titan, and still running. Of course a lot of stuff have been replaced or changed in it. Until about 3 years ago, my parents-in-law used it, and as far as I heard, they had had some adventurous trips, as far as Alaska, British Columbia etc. Well, seems that after 20 years it was time for a change, so they bought a nice new Rexhall push-out giant, and we "inherited" the old one. As a new "homeowner" I had to learn how everything worked. By now I've been familiar with most of them...air conditioning, gas stove and oven, ceiling fans, shower and bathroom (well, that's kind of an exaggeration, since there's only a sink and a toile…
