There were more people coming to look at the house yesterday afternoon. Vince was sitting on the porch and he called me. He told me he had sent Jeremy pictures . . the solar powered well, the greenhouse, the big front porch, the shop . . Vince was outside walking around while the people were looking at the house and just taking pictures and sending them. He said Jeremy said something like “You have everything there!” and I could tell Vince was feeling bad about leaving the place.
I told him later that I’m feeling bad because I know this was all my idea and not something he wanted to do. He assured me that it was time to leave . . as we get older, it’s harder to keep up a place like that, and he sees that we need to be closer to Chad.
It still makes me sad but as a long time reader, Susan, commented yesterday . . We lived there and worked our tails off (not exactly her words) and it it wouldn’t be human not to feel some sadness at leaving.
I had said I wouldn’t have a garden here and I won’t but I will have something growing. I planted four pieces of elephant garlic from the farmers’ market and it’s growing nicely. I doubt we’ll eat it because I stuck it in a flower bed and I know there’s been an abundant use of Roundup here. Whatever we’re going to eat will go in raised beds with new soil.
Nothing as far as building anything can happen til Vince gets here though!
