Share the Joy: New Opportunities

Image
It's out of the old house and into the new.
Bye bye home that sheltered me so well for 16 years. You did a great job, and I'm ready to let you go to be loved by someone new.

There is abundant joy in opening to new opportunities to make my home perfectly comfy and serene -- so all who enter feel safe and loved.

Share the Joy: Almost There

Image
Closing on the house I'm selling was delayed a couple of days (until tomorrow) but I'm almost there.
The furniture got moved yesterday. I have a TON of artwork and art supplies still to move, plus lots of odds and ends. It feels never-ending, this packing up a load and driving to the new house and wondering where to put things, but it has to be finished by Saturday when I turn over the keys to the new owners.
I'm totally exhausted but full of joy that I'm turning the page on a new chapter in my very rich, friend-filled, beautiful life.

Share the Joy: Big News

Image
I'm excited to announce that closing on the sale of my house will be early next week, either Tuesday or Wednesday.
Yippee!
I'm beginning to focus on the new house while packing up dishes and pots and pans, books, towels, mops and brooms, and lots of art and art supplies from the old house.
It's time to 

of my deep sense of "home" with the old house and make the new digs my home, both physically and emotionally.
It's also time to get serious about paring down the stuff, as there's not room to hang on to things like there was in the old house,  which was almost twice the size of the new, more modest home. What I don't have room for will find new homes,  so I'm happy about that.

Share the Joy: Crisp Autumn Days

Image
I'm enjoying crisp autumn days when the morning fog burns off and the sun shines down on me.


It's pretty clear to me that I'm solar powered because a sunny day perks me right up, while a grey, rainy day makes me want to curl up under a blanket with a good novel and a steaming cup of chai.
Did you watch the lunar eclipse last night, or were you sound asleep?

Share the Joy: I'm Back

Image
Last week it was hopeless to post --- my internet connection was just gone. Turns out the ethernet adapter was blown, but for right now, at least, I can get on blogger.
Now there's a reason for joy.
What else?
Passing through the tunnel on the Bridge of Glass always makes me pause and smile.


The majesty of sunsets over the Olympic Mountains makes me sigh and shiver in delight that I live in such a beautiful place.


Fall colors give me joy, even though I know the rainy days are coming.

How pretty is this little maple tree, all blazed out in oranges and reds? After all, it's the first day of October and time to wear a coat of many colors.
