Well, Friday was the big day!
We signed our paperwork and paid for the Mountain Farmlet. We were so excited that we wore ourselves out with it all. We had planned to take ourselves out to dinner, but then didn’t have the energy to go! But dinner at home was good.
Tucker is getting better! It is painfully slow progress, but we don’t have to let him out every hour on the hour now. In fact, we found out on Friday that he can hold it for over three hours now, and that is a milestone. However, we will be waiting a lot longer for his fur to grow back.
Now begins the hopefully not too long process of prepping this house and selling it. We considered renting, but in the end we decided we just don’t want the hassle that goes along with being rental owners.
ANYBODY WANT TO BUY A NICE FARMLET IN HAZEL GREEN?
As for the Mountain Farmlet, well we still have one more week to go. The Octogenarian is having her estate sale and then will be moved out by the 10th. I was feeling sad for her to have to go, but then she told us she has plans to go traveling over the next year! I think this is wonderful, and I hope she has a wonderful journey wherever she goes!
In the meantime I have been busy making cuttings, and potting up plants I want to take with me to the Mountain Farmlet. Roses, herbs, bulbs and more. I started the roses by air layering and it is working FAST and FABULOUSLY! I already have big, fat root callouses growing in under all that sphagnum moss and tinfoil! I am taking more than one of each item to ensure that I get at least ONE OF EACH ITEM!
Oh yes, and when I am not puttering and such in the gardens, I have been quietly packing and sorting for the moving sale.
So much to do!
And so, back to work I go!
And today is Bob’s Birthday!
So you simply must wish him a Happy Birthday!
