Lots of planning and dreaming this past week. We've decided to go forward and put our home on the market. I've mentioned that there is someone interested in a trade of properties but whether that will prove wise is yet to be seen. His property is just up our road and quite primitive - but very beautiful. The well there is spring fed and all our inquiries so far seem to be favorable in that it has never gone dry. The septic is not adequate and would need work. And we would need to build a small home to replace the single wide trailer which is literally falling apart. Not to mention the bear-clawed window screens in the kitchen.
So all this week I have looked at our place with the "critical eye" of a potential buyer. I'm just such a collector, ya know? And with the idea of moving to a 1000 sqare foot home there's a lot that will need to be sold, tossed, given away. What about my small shrine to the pottery and ancient glass gods?
There are so many things to think of in these times of transtioning from one living space to another. I've gotten a good start by thoroughly cleaning the floors
and by trying to de-clutter my kitchen.
I'm undecided about how much to take out of here - look at all the old utensils hanging and the tea pots and baskets above the cabinets. If you were a buyer, what do you want to see? (ooh - check out that fog outside - it comes and goes all weekend)
