First of all, I want to thank everyone who left comments and family who sent cards. Smudge will be missed for a long time…
Gin’s mom has been in and out of the hospital since her surgery due to low blood count. If you ever have a chance to donate blood to the American Red Cross, please do it. I’ve donated over a couple of gallons in my life and know that it’s made a difference for others. Their new home still isn’t finished but should be ready by Tuesday. We plan to go there for a few days to help with the move. They’re under a lot of stress I’m sure.
We’ve been at our house for about two weeks and have been busy just about every day. First of all, we ran into our friends Tricia and Dan at a nearby campground by coincidence. They came to our house for a little visit. Gin has done a bit of touch ups around the house and I had a root canal. I’m not sure which was more fun. We did take a few minutes to enjoy the view from our back porch.
On Wednesday, we posted the dining room and bedroom furniture on Craigslist. That night, the bedroom was gone. We had decided to have a yard sale this weekend so we pulled everything that remained in the kitchen, garage, and office into the garage. Our plan was to sell as much furniture as we could too. On Thursday evening, we talked with our neighbors Mark and Kelly and told them they could get first dibs. They got a few pieces of furniture and Mark called his dad Jim to have him check out the couch. Well Jim decided to get it along with everything else we had out for the yard sale. He knew of a family in need through the church he attends and we were glad to get rid of it. On Friday, Jim filled up his truck and trailer. It was nice to get all that stuff gone. The only thing that remained was our dining room stuff so Gin put it on CL again Friday night. First thing Saturday morning, I had an email from someone who wanted it. So now it is gone too. The house is totally empty! We move fast! Now if we can just get that shell sold…
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
