June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors

If you ask anyone what motivates them, the top two responses would most likely be love or money. Personally, I am chasing the almighty dollar at the moment. I cannot remember the last time I worked so hard in my life! But in the end, if we get the results we’re hoping for (a substantialContinue reading “June 20, 2021 – Motivating Factors”

How I’m going to miss all of the birds that regularly visit our backyard! The other day, there were so many, it was like being at a bird sanctuary. Between the flickers and sparrows, the doves and pigeons, the quail and robins, the starlings and nuthatches, and the hummingbirds, it was quite the sight toContinue reading “June 19, 2021 – Photo”

June 18, 2021 – The list keeps growing!

Sigh. It’s not as if the ‘list’ isn’t long enough already, but I keep finding more stuff to add. I just keep thinking that whoever walks through our front door as a prospective buyer, I want to knock their socks off! I still have yet to finish painting most of the interior doors (in ourContinue reading “June 18, 2021 – The list keeps growing!”

My friends, how I am going to miss my garden! We filled it with easy-to-maintain perennials and it’s a joy each year to watch as each one grows and blooms. The plant (pictured) was already in our garden when we purchased our home several years ago. It is actually called ‘Elephant Garlic’, believe it orContinue reading “June 17, 2021 – Photo”

June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye

I am not ready to say goodbye, not just yet. My husband keeps telling me to call my brother and break the news but I can’t seem to do it. The last few times we’ve communicated, he’s told me how much he’s struggling (with depression). Knowing this, I don’t feel good about dropping a bombContinue reading “June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye”

During my recent trip to visit family and friends, I got an opportunity to visit the Botanic Gardens. In one of the exhibits, there was a really beautiful (massive) glass sculpture. The sculpture was designed and created by the world-renowned glass artist, Dale Chihuly, along with several members of ‘his team’. It has been onContinue reading “June 15, 2021 – Photo”

June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed

Let me tell you, I knew that once we made up our minds to move, the momentum would pick up, but this is ridiculous! In the last two days, I have completed more tasks around my house than I have in the last two years. Why the hurry? Oh my gosh, we had the firstContinue reading “June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed”

As I was eating dinner the other day, I looked out towards the backyard and spotted the most beautiful blooms on our Elephant Garlic plants. I grabbed my camera, went outside, took several photos, and then continued to meander through the yard. When I reached the shed, I noticed all of the delicious berries onContinue reading “June 13, 2021 – Photo”

June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.

Well, there’s nothing like the concept of ‘moving’ to light a fire under my butt. I actually managed to ‘tick one of the boxes’ on my list today and finally got around to staining our cedar gate and fence. And that isn’t all. The one job that I have resisted tackling because it’s so vast,Continue reading “June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.”
