Life got a bit hectic this past week. Somehow a little fire got lit under us and we made contact with a realtor and started visiting some properties in search of our next home.
We've been saying for years that we need to downsize, but in our heart of hearts it's not downsizing we're needing as much as leveling our living space. In other words, we feel we should look for a home we can grow old in and the tri-level we live in is not that. Anyway, with a bit of a flame lit, we made some steps in the direction of beginning to think about buying and selling homes. Knowing us, this will take a while, but then again... if the perfect house (for us) presented itself, who knows?!? It's with some excitement and trepidation we dipped our toes in that water.
And this weekend, we enjoyed having visitors (the daughter of a much older, deceased half-brother - who lost her mother recently, and her husband). Amongst discussion of the losses we've both had, there was lots of catching up on our families and family history. Heartaches were shared, as well as laughter. It was very good to connect after many years, even if I am finding myself emotionally whipped here on Sunday evening.
All that, and other activities, kept me from actually accomplishing much that was tangible last week. But that's okay. Another week's a comin'.
My probably-not-so-mysterious amigurumi gained an arm and about three quarters of a head, but ahead lies the scary part - the face. Meaning, the whole thing could be crocheted, stuffed and sewn together, but its success hinges on me being able to give it a cute face. 😟
Fearlessly, I will plug away on it. Trusting that all will end well.
And that's all, folks. Thanks for stopping by!
