This day had to be my laziest day in some time. It’s been overcast, cloudy and cold all day today. Tonight, as I look out my office window the sky is dark, and traffic on the highway is a steady stream of headlights and tail lights as people head for home up or down the mountain.
I didn’t accomplish a whole lot today — no sewing, that’s for sure, which is disappointing considering how much I have yet to do on my big project. I’ve even felt a bit guilty for wasting the day away. When you’re running on the short end of your life, you feel a bit more pressure to not waste the time you have left on this side of the veil.
I did call the management for Roadhaven to let them know we were going to be putting our home on the market, and that I was going to be coming in on the 11th to clear out personal effects so the place could be listed for sale. I also called Salt River Project to have the electricity turned on effective the 10th. It’s never truly been shut off except at the back power post, but I’ve always been an honest person and want to be billed for any usage. I’ve arranged to meet with the realtor the morning of the 12th and she will have the place thoroughly cleaned before it’s viewed by any potential buyers. It’s been vacant for three years now, so the dust bunnies have had time to make generations of baby bunnies. LOL
The eldest son will drive me over in his truck, and our youngest son will drive over on his own from San Diego. I asked him to please bring someone with him for company. He said he’d see if one of their boys wanted to tag along. It would make me feel more comfortable rather than thinking of him making the long drive all alone. That said, I have to think about the older son driving long distances by himself to and from his work sites and I never seem to worry about him. Maybe because he’s been doing it for so many years. I don’t know… It’s a long trip and far too much for Robert to withstand at this point in time, but it’s something that needs to be done.
I’ve done a lot of sewing for the Depot gift shop lately and have told the gift shop manager that I needed to switch gears for a while to get my other personal sewing done. She said that personal sewing took precedence and thanked me for the things I’d made. They’ve been selling almost as fast as I can get them made and put up for sale in the shop. I told Robert just this morning that I had always doubted the quality of my work, but either my work is decent enough for people to want or they can’t resist the prices being set for the items. One way or the other, the Depot is benefiting and that was my goal.
May you all be blessed. Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Life is precious — enjoy yours! Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
