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!
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
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
