It's been great hanging around here the last day or two. Definitely a consequence of having time, not travelling, and spring. By "great," I mean challenging, stretching myself to be responsive, compassionate, and creative.
. . .are afoot. Last night, with some anxiety, I gave my four tenants six-months notice. (My ex let me keep our previous domicile - a big house in another city away from him. (flagamuffin has visited). I moved here when ex told me he "needed space" in 2015. The tenants, four working women, age 24-29, have been okay and the $$ has helped me keep the house going for sure. My grievances are relatively minor -- but it's time to leap into an unknown future.
West coast bf is moving in with me. I will fly out west in August and we will drive across the country together.
Planted annuals all around the house. Here's Hydrangea, Stump, and Squirrel.
