We all make plans in our lives for the future
and as we age we start to think about
direction, downsizing and
what things we learn we can manage
and not manage as the case may be!)
when we advertised our beautiful home and property
(to test the water so to speak)
we were not expecting our hearts would have to change so quickly
when it sold almost immediately!
How could we ever leave all of this -
the trees we have planted, the plants, flowers and roses
we have nurtured,
the birds we have watched,
and the precious pets we connect with daily
is taking us in a new downsized direction
all of our beloved pets can stay with their
new owners thankfully
we are happy for them for that!
So consequently it is a time for sorting and packing up our
possessions as well as casting off which has its
own sense of freedom
after much searching we feel we have been very blessed
in taking the next step forward to
a very small manageable property in our near by seaside town
which affords the most incredible beauty at our back door
without all of the labour on our own shoulders!
Nature has provided us with this:
Another gorgeous garden which is very simple
with the rest provided by nature on a lake
with vistas and magnificent aged tea trees
amazing bird life, kangaroos and ducks.
This is just a glimpse of what is to come!
(a glimpse of the lake to the left!)
So onward with the packing we go now in my studio
in the boxes they go!
as they wait in line to arrive at their next
stage of the my creative journey!
Empty shelves now as I count the days before
I say goodbye to this morning kitchen view!!!
All of this my dear friends is the reason I have been unable
to be at my table creating as well as visiting you all!!!
The task has been and is still huge!!!
I hope to be able to share
more with you in the coming weeks.
I am linking today to Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 18
with Wendy Sylvestre.
Thank you so much for your support and patience
as we make this transition!
With Love and Hugs,
