Moving On

The lemon tree is blooming.  It's a wet little lemon tree.

Yesterday we went down to the Cat Mountain Station to look for an oil cloth tablecloth that would go with our newly reupholstered chairs.  There was no joy there, they're all extremely cheerful with vibrant patterns.  This is a prickly pear foreground with fruit.  This looks like a very happy cactus.

This is what it looks like when a thunderstorm is trying to form.  It reminds me of a mushroom cloud in the distance.

We received an offer on the house - we accepted it.  It looks pretty good, they're pre-qualified for a loan, and they've waived the appraisal contingency.  I feel fairly confident about it; I think it's unlikely that the inspection will turn up anything insurmountable, so hopefully this will proceed without drama.  So, there you go.  We're going north.

  4. Congrats on the Sale, it sounds solid. We moved last February, what an Ordeal, glad it's behind me now, I'd forgotten how much work and expense was involved in Buying and Selling Real Estate and then moving everything again. It would help if we still traveled Light, but we grew Old and got a lot of stuff now. How far North are you intending to travel?

  7. Great - moving is difficult in the best of times without the addition of all sorts of drama with selling your house.

  10. I followed your house on Redfin so got a notification this morning that it was Contingent. Congratulations! Hope all goes smoothly with the closing and your move. Your house there is so nice and so well-located right by the national park, I knew it would sell quickly, especially in this hot seller's market. Good for you!
