Long day (yesterday) but the most downtime for a long time while someone else works. 😁

Great moving crew

Van finally loaded and we’re off to overnight with friends.

Lovely dinner and friend time!

Cleaning up tomorrow and and heading for Arizona.


The adventure begins.

P. S. Anyone else getting forever-dry, cracked hands from all the hand-washing??

…it’s moving day and I need some bright beauty! 🤪😊

For many weeks, I’ve been doing a morning walk with Jo, but she’s taking a break and we’re getting ready to move, so we’re not having an official walk.

In this time of social distancing/isolation/quarantining , the internet provides us with the opportunity of social interaction without fear of sickness. Today even more than ever, this is a true blessing.

I’ve also seen children out playing in their yards, shooting baskets in the drive way, or walking with their parents. I’ve seen couples walking hand in hand. I’ve not seen phones. This too is a small series of blessings in a time when we would do well to remember the good.
