She captured this magnificent sunset on her camera...last night..
A lot has happened over the last year. The footing was poured on her country home about a year ago. 7 months of building - not a day was missed. Making the trip from the city to the country, many days a week. Dreaming of spending her last years, on her rural wooded acreage, gardening, writing, and her camera in hand.
In the beginning she planned a simpler cottage, but after much thought it turned into a small home for her and family to enjoy.
All went well. Her mind and some of her children would echo "is this wise"? She just followed her heart. All she really knows - is she has a deep peace on this land.
Six months ago - she started spending nights in the country. Moving gradually and final move of furnishings before the holidays.
An emotional week with being snowed in (still snowed in) another reduction in price on city home, and a prospective buyer (one of the dealing kind - One Woman usually makes quick decisions).
She accepted a price and is moving on with her life. She could go through Spring and Summer with a hope of a higher price. Expenses continue and that is a gamble she is not going to take.
Long story of why she moved to the city - a lot has been shared on my journal. Being closer to family, investment strategy, recession, a deep desire to return to her country property, building, and this selling experience - which is nothing like she has experienced in the past.
There will be inspections this week and a closing February 19th. So this is in her favor.
If all goes forward - she knows in her heart it is not what she desired - but she will accept and continue on day by day.
Bottom line - She has a Thankful Heart for All.........
All that have followed a portion of her journey and encouraged her - are very special to her.
Will see how the week turns out.
