And we have begun

Jack is taking a break from packing and is trapped in his chair by bubble wrap.  I would have to say we made a dent albeit a small one. And tomorrow is another day. 

The house has been listed and my realtor has a mover who will help transport the larger items to the storage unit as we stage the house for attracting buyers. I guess the idea is have it look spacious (empty?) so a prospective buyer can visualize the space.

The coffee table is covered again. I have packed 8 boxes so far and will do more tomorrow.

The dining room table is covered. The rug is covered.

Sleep, my little pretties. Christmas is coming. 

So, we shall continue with vigor. I don't have room for one of my pine cupboards so it will live with some friends. The sofa will go on that wall which will open up the living area.

This packing has not been too bad yet but the nightmare will be my sewing room and studio. I don't even think I can take pictures of that....

Summer Changes

We are saying farewell to Querencia, the little red cabin on the lake, where I went to stay after my Rich died and where I slowly put my life in order. The cabin was a special place for me where I could heal my heart. A while later Jack entered the picture and a new life began for both of us. Now 12 years later, this chapter will close.

When Jack came to pick me up for our first "date", he too fell in love with this little cabin on the lake.  However, 2 miles up the road he had a lovely home. Over the past few years he has made some wonderful improvements and I have become more needing of the comforts he has added. We would commute back and forth and it has become too much. We will spend summer in his home and winters in Florida. We will miss the little cabin and our landlords who have been good friends as well.

Now, in Florida we will start a new chapter. We are moving. We are building a new home right up the road and it should be ready by Thanksgiving. I am overwhelmed with all that has to be done but we shall start the sorting and packing when we go back next week. Think bubble wrap - lots of bubble wrap.

The motivation for the move is to be on one floor in a smaller community of homes. And I no longer want the pool. The wonderful features of the home are just a bonus.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and I am sure I will have something to say when I am in the midst of the packing! Until then.....
