We are trying to organize our lives…which means downsizing. We have sold the farm. By the end of September, we will be residents of British Columbia, living near our daughter’s family, watching the grandchildren grow.
This may be hard for you to believe, but even harder for us to imagine. We are busy throwing away more that 17 years worth of stuff, and the major and minor decisions are sometimes painful. But we are keeping in mind that life isn’t about stagnation, but meeting new opportunities. So off we go!
There may be new gardens, but even that isn’t certain. I’ll be back to painting and fixing the inside of the new place, and I imagine having little ones spend time with us too. There will be space for guests…that’s for sure. We will be closer to the grocery store, but will need to take the ferry for major purchases and things like vet visits.
Living in the computer age means we will never be far from friends and family, even though the distances in miles will change.
I like Bonnie Raitt’s take on things: “Life gets mighty precious when there’s less of it to waste.”
If I appear here very seldom, know that I am busy doing things I love!
Goodbye to the farm…
But hello family!!!
