Our New Crew Member

Well our new crew member has finally arrived into the world.

Warren August Potts came into this world on January 28, 2017 at 3:22 pm, weighing 6.1 amd 18 inches. And he is Gorgeous!

Both beautiful Mother and handsome Baby did great and doing wonderful..and let me tell you how great my son is being a Daddy.. makes a mother so proud.

Let see well that is the huge news lately and I am sure for the year..

We have been keeping our heads down trying to not cry too much of being away from our sweet Saga Sea..

Steve is being great working at the office.. oh yeah he is now working in an office at a big company and all that goes along with that.. he notices how much he has changed in the last 5-8 years.

We both feel like we dont have very much in common with people living the traditional lifestyle any more.. we are aliens here.. ... basically everywhere I suppose..

For now he will continue to work and I will try to not spend too much on the new baby.  I will try to keep my mind busy with crocheting and keeping schooner entertained by taking her on walks and bike rides..

Until next time my friends. Be good to yourself and others

Well we are still working on filling up the cruising account... well mostly Steve..he is steadily scolding me on spending his earnings. Lol. What can I say... I am what I am... hehehe He tells me January is the stop spending date..

Life in Texas

Well our life has changed drastically from life on Saga Sea.. We found a new dinghy... car.. and Steve is working away.  I am crocheting for the new grandchild that is expected in February.  I have also been pet sitting for friends.

Steve is able to work from home for now which is Awesome!  This allows him to travel with me to friends' homes to pet sit for them..  We were wondering how we were going to handle being away from each other, so for now we dont.

We are also enjoying being on a farm... Steve's mother lives in a house on her Son In law and youngest  Daughter's property.  It is farm land her Son In Law's family has had for many decades..  the town has literally grown up around them. It is nice to have the farm animals around us as we enjoy the outside atmosphere from lovely porches..  we get to watch little new born cows grow and hear lambs and goats call out ...

These are the things we are enjoying. We wont discuss the things we arent enjoying..such as politics, insurance, and consumerist adds everywhere... aww and the news.. breading fear in the world. Its really sad..

America is the land of plenty.. which is really nice and convenient... but it all comes at a very high coast and it isnt just financial..  im so glad I have had the opportunity to leave and to return with a different perspective on things. It helps me appreciate America but I use morn the loss of my nieveness. It seems with age comes fear...  It will become very interesting what we will think in a year..

Its our New Year

October seems to be our January... we left the states in October of 2014 and we have returned a few weeks before in 2016 but it is only temporary. 

We left our beloved Saga Sea in the Rio Dulce Guatemala.. she gets to rest.. she is being well taken care of by Oscar at Tijax Marina..

We had a great trip back to Texas.. we left Tijax on Wednesday morning for a 5 hour drive to Guatemala City where we stayed in an Airbnb home again... Mi Casa Too Casa.. this will probably be our place to stay each time we are flying out of GC..

So we left Thursday morning and flew to Costa Rica on Avianca Airline and had no problem with Schooner .. and she was perfect..

Our layover was quick and easy and then off to Texas on United.. once again no problems with Schooner... she held her potty until we were all the way through all the check in stuff... and we remembered to get them to stamp our passports...

And Customs was very impressed by Schooner's behavior..
They never seen a more alert and behaved "service" dog. Lol. That is interesting

So we got to Mother Boyd's home and but she is in Michigan... this allowed us to get settled in and organized... we got phones activated and work clothes for Steve..  

He left this morning for his first day... he is at Exxon in the Woodlands.  Hahah. All the safety rules really put him back quickly... they actually have a rule to hold onto the railing when on the stairways. Hahaha.

While Steve is working I will help Mother Boyd with the house and gardening.  As well as changing up my nutrition... if you havent known me for long then you dont know how I really am a health continuous person..  but I have been in a very long funk...

Back in 2009 my life changed completely... I was laid off, cared for my dying father, who was only 61., a year later he died, I went back to school and changes direction in life, then my mother dropped dead at 64.  She was my best friend.. kids grew up and we left to fullfill long time life goal.. 

I really thought things would work themselves out inside me.. but it just hasnt happen.. so this year is a reset year.. im working on balance.. balancing life while enjoying it..

So even though our sailing has been put on hold for a little bit our life havent. So I will continue this blog.. it is for us more than anything.  It is our virtual photo album.
