Every room in my house looks like this. Stacked with boxes and things being sorted and wrapped before being placed into boxes.
Only 26 days until closing and moving. I finally have a place to move. Not quite two weeks ago, I found a place that had every thing I wanted. It even has a nice sized patio/garden area that is basically a blank slate. The owners were asking quite a bit more than the property was worth but I made an offer. This past Saturday, after quite a bit of back and forth with offers and counter offers, they accepted my final offer. After a trying and frustrating day it really brightened my spirits.
When I'd walked in and had a thorough look at the property, I turned to my realtor and said, "This is the one." Because of the difficulty in coming to terms, we did spend a few days looking at other property as I needed to have someplace to move. But I realized when I narrowed it down to two others, that just weren't quite right, that I needed to NOT settle for something that wasn't "the one."
So back to bargaining we went, with a little added Work by me and my wishes clearly stated to the Universe and here we are. Not just a place to live but a place I can really love.
Since I am surrounded by cardboard boxes and newspapers, I splurged just a bit at the farmers market yesterday. Not only did I get fresh strawberries and peaches (oh how I love fresh peaches!), I bought a little nosegay from my flower friends. She also gave me a separate slip of larkspur that had developed seed heads. I'm drying those now so I'll have them to plant in my new little garden!
Are you enjoying anything special this week?
ps...so, yeah, I gave up on the gluten free as I could tell not one bit of difference in my headaches and well, I really wanted cake! and not one I'd have to make myself! more on that later...
