Here it is:
Sunday we received our first overnight visitors at the new house: Dave's sister Carol and her husband Dan, who drove in from Chicago to stay a few days. We have such a great time with them and talk and laugh all day and most of the night and walk the dogs and eat and drink, and drink some more.
On Monday we got a call from our real estate broker that we got a bid on the country house! Brother in law Dan happens to be our lawyer and he advised us and we countered the offer and now we have until 5pm today to see if they will agree to our terms. This may be the day the house sells...or not. SO how's that for a momentous beginning to their visit?
We still have a little bit of stuff to move out of this house, like more of my art stuff, and that will have to happen very soon. Mostly I am looking forward to moving my big blue ceramic flower pots and getting something started in them as it is already Spring in the Valley where we now live.
My sister in law Carol is so clever at decorating and we have been looking at my beige walls, which she likes and she is
To say we are on pins and needles about this sale is an exaggeration. I feel that it is early days and when things begin to bloom on the mountain and the weather warms, more lookers and potential buyer will appear, so even if these people can't agree to our counter, someone else will, soon. I am confident.
In the meantime, I am thinking about buying dirt, and six packs of pansies and getting my hands dirty. Spring does that 'thing' to me.
Thanks to all of you who follow this blog and my adventures. I so appreciate your kind attentions.
PS! OMG I didn't realize that the pics from the post yesterday didn't show up! So much going on and not enough paying attention, so sorry. Here they are:
