I signed the papers so we're 'in contract' with the buyers. For over 7 hundred thou. Yeah! I can pay off the old mortgage, pay down the new mortgage to a miniscule amount and have $$ for the remodel, yeah!!! Can't wait to begin the tear-off, replace the sinks, redo the kitchen, rid the bathroom of some red tile and horrid floor.

Next year if I can hold out, in comes the new garden, o joy, my favorite part. Dirt under my nails, dirt in my hair and a home for the hummingbird I saw in the treetops.

It will be worth it.

Congratulations. May it be a happy home and a gorgeous lush garden.

Congratulations! Woo Hoo! Your hard work paid off and now you will get to do some more hard work and leave your stamp on another piece of earth! Enjoy.
I saw a hummingbird yesterday and immediately filled feaders. Made me so happy. Hope you are happy too.

I'm not going to lie to you - I have had a browser tab open to your house listing since you posted it. I look at it every day and marvel that you accomplishes that and ponder how any person could garden so hard and so well. I daydream in those pictures and get lost in the simple beauty of each room. Then I get up and try to clear a corner of my counter! Thanks for the inspiration and the diversion :)

Sabine-I do have a green thumb, as they say.

Mel-Thank you so much for the compliment. There is nothing like the creation of a garden. And I'm always fussing, pulling weeds, pruning, mulching. Stanley Kunitz, the poet, had a most beautiful garden as did May Sarton. The vigor of growing plants...

Everything that you've hoped for has come true. Congratulations! Now you can pay off your old mortgage much easier, and also pay a good amount on your new one. I’m glad that everything turned out okay. And hopefully it will continue to when you begin the renovation of your new house. Cheers!
