Papas World – do we or don’t we – 21 years here – blessed

Well – we shall see how this all works out –

WE ARE LISTING OUR HOME – another BIG event in our life!

And yes – at least once a day – ” Please call my phone” ! LOL

It always gets laid down somewhere only not to be found!

Going to miss this – a view out the back door – to the East sunrise.

We decided that maybe it was time – we have gone through one down turn

and after almost 13 years – our market here has recovered

to the point we just may break even on the sale of the house!

Being 71 years old – we just do not have the time left to rebound

if the market once again turns down.

With the pandemic – and our area is still strong in sales

we decided to cut our ties here – and wait and rent –

We love it here – will we be sorry and regret it?

NOTE: Hair is much longer now – going back to my HIPPIE DAYS!

Or will we treat it as a new adventure – a new start –

where ever we want to go!

This could become our new norm!

For the time being – we will stay with the kids –

either in Leesburg or Winchester

and after Christmas – head South for the winter.

Storage will contain whatever we do not sell

and we have sold a lot already!

We have made five trips to Salvation Army –

We have given the kids different items

What they can use or want – we have gone through STUFF

and donated it or thrown away!

Being retired has made it all the easier to do this.

Once you make up your mind –

throwing things away becomes less stressful

and looking ahead to a new beginning

a new start somewhere – we have ideas

but for the time being – we will just relax

( I do not how we had time to work – before retirement)

I will miss my yard – my flowers – everything I created

but I have done this before – leaving my mark on the land

Someday we will return and ride around

just to see the changes and how it looks.

My neighbors have said they will miss us –

They wonder if the next ones will keep it as nice as we have.

Only time will tell –

I told the lady selling our house –

everything you see – comes back each Spring

There are four trees I did not plant – every other tree and bush

I planted – most times on my knees by hand

for you see Northern Va. is full of rocks! LOL

Blooming in the Spring
Growing our own produce
The Tower Garden
Everything is for sale
We will take at least one with us
http://www.sfjuiceplus.com
Its a big house
almost 3100 sf.
a 500 sf patio
strawberry patch
I am going to miss this the most
mowing – trimming
green grass – shade trees
flowers – Gods beauty
Sitting on our front porch
I like this better than the patio
I get to see people walking
saying hello
waving from across the street
Saying good bye to the path we walked
the sidewalks – the lakes
the forests
The playgrounds and the buildings to come
Sheltering has been good for us
as we have places to walk
going to miss this after 14 years

By the time you have read this – we will have listed the house

We will have had a storage unit

and cleaned out the house and stored what we can

made it presentable to those who are interested

downsizing – clearing out –

And maybe even sold it!

Who knows where our next adventure will be

I will keep blogging where ever we are

LIFE BEGINS AT 71 FOR US!

Together through thick and thin

living life one day at a time

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
