The new house
Here are a couple of photos of our new, suburban house in a golf course community.The size of the house and the small lot is perfect for our time in life and the fact that it is time for us to play and not tax these ailing bodies.
Since the entire backyard is pool and concrete I will be embarking on the world of container gardening.
Just when I thought that other than the very last minute things to pack, I only had a few boxes to close up, I realized I still have the remaining gallery pots to pack. Many have been given away to family and friends and I have to keep some out for Jim's sister and husband who are coming this weekend. So this morning I'll number, catalog and close up the last of the studio boxes after I top them off with some small pots. Then I need put a couple that I think Jim's sister and brother in law might like.
Yesterday, the last of the household and most of the studio things I was giving away left, so now I can concentrate on packing the remainder. Even though I've been giving a lot of food away, throwing some out every day, here's still a lot to go through but most of that my friend Betty is going to clean out after we leave, take what she wants and throw out the rest.
Doing all this without Jim's help, and even with the amazing amount of help our son and daughter have given me, has been monumental;but when the moving truck arrives Monday morning I think I will be ready for them - pretty wiped out, but ready!
