For the past ten years, I called this little place home. For awhile I had second thoughts about taking the next big step but early this morning I was woken at 6 A.M. by the loud “singing” of a mating cardinal, the carpenter bees that take up residence in the roof of my front porch emerged from their winter slumber, and a couple of other creepy crawlies made their way inside this evening.
Tomorrow, I’m moving the items I’m keeping into a 5′ x 5′ storage unit; on Wednesday the good folks at Habitat for Humanity come to take much of my larger stuff; on Thursday the trash haulers come to take everything else; and on Friday I turn over the keys.
I will have future postings of the entire process I went through to pare down and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. As expected, it was hardest parting with all my little travel goodies. If there was anything specific you want me to discuss, leave a comment.
I appreciate everyone being patient and understanding that my mind has been elsewhere during all this change. Starting next week you’ll see more frequent postings as there is much I have read on the internet and want to discuss.
