Small Spaces + Lenny's Margarita
It is pretty quiet around The Manor this week, as DT and I continue our
organizing/purging of a house we occasionally visit. Every time a drawer or
cabinet is approached to organize, I must remind myself that we spend 8 months
of the year in a 45-foot long house. We just don't need/use this stuff. Out it
Speaking of small spaces... have you watched the
House Hunters series on HGTV, where people build super-small houses to
reduce their carbon footprint, or to save money, or live a minimalist lifestyle?
Most of the people on the program want to be able to take their teeny house with them
when they move to a new job, etc.
To live like this, they need to make a lot of compromises. The homes are built
with wood, so the weight is substantial. A recent episode showed the builder
"designing" a booth dining set - with the table lowering between the two benches
to make a bed. Really? Genius! RV's have had tables that convert to beds for 50
years! A travel trailer would be so much cheaper, so much more convenient, so
much lighter and so much easier to tow. And easier for resale: if a young couple
share 200 square feet for a year, they will either get a divorce or have a baby.
Either way, the teeny house will have to go.
But, I suppose a series titled "Young Couples Choose a Travel Trailer" would not
be a big hit. This, Dear Reader, is why I am not a television producer.
If I were, George Clooney would star as the RV salesman.
This is the recipe included in last month's RV Goddess Newsletter. The

This the way I make a margarita for my favorite son-in-law, Lenny:
A little less alcohol and a lot of fresh juice = a great margarita.
2 ounces Patron Silver (or premium white tequila)
1 ounce Patron Citronge (or good quality orange liquor)
2 ounces organic orange juice
1 ounce fresh squeezed organic lime juice
Stir ingredients together and serve over a margarita glass (or an
old-fashioned glass) filled with ice. Salted rim optional. Lime wedge
garnish. Serves one.
Until my next update, I remain, your teeny correspondent.
