Share the Joy: Holidaze



It's once again time to share your joy.
I feel a little jolt of joy each time I empty a box
and put things in place in the new house.

And when I look forward with anticipation
to having a big family Thanksgiving next week. . . 
and decorating for Christmas soon after.

Share the Joy: Brrrr!



It's cold enough here that I'm checking the hummingbird feeders
to make sure they aren't frozen. . . . .
because the hummingbirds are frequent visitors.

And I'm a little late in posting today
because my son and I went to a movie
while my Volvo was getting a new headlight
and its electrical system checked for a short.

Here's what we saw ---


and we both loved and enJOYed it enormously.


I just love, love, love going to movies,
especially at our local non-profit movie theater
that showing indie films.


It's a total treasure and always brings me joy when I visit.
The free popcorn for members is always great, too.

Share the Joy: November Joy



It's cool-ish and rainy here,
a great time for cuddling up under a quilt
and having a good read.


Reading always gives me joy.
I love wandering through a thicket of words,
wondering at the beauty of language,
its ability to capture emotion,
build suspense,
and tell a good yarn.

Share the Joy: New Opportunities





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



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



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.
