View From My Window

Monday, January 16, 2022 — Yesterday was one busy day–I actually slept in until 11:00 a.m. and then the phone rang and it was our realtor, saying she had two showings that day and I needed to get myself up and together because the first showing was on their way to our house! Aaack! My day kind of got away from me and I didn’t do my morning meds or nebulizer or even have my coffee until afternoon. But, then we had the second showing, which was just a ‘looky-loo’ by the daughter of a good friend who told her daughter, “You’ve GOT to go see this house while you have the chance. It’s gorgeous!” And the daughter had a gentleman with her who volunteered at the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum!! So cool. And they were upfront with our realtor about buying the house. I didn’t mind them being a looky-loo at all. It was a nice visit.

On Saturday, I went through my jewelry box and the bank bags in my bureau drawer that had some of the more valuable pieces of jewelry that I never wear (and most likely won’t ever wear at this point in time). Happily, I found numerous pieces that my realtor’s daughters could use as play jewelry, or real jewelry as they got older. Such fun going through and finding long colorful strands of Mardi Gras necklaces, hummingbird earrings, parrot earrings and rings–all of the rings that you could ever want with itty-bitty diamonds in them. Every girl should have diamonds! I had to laugh when L said she went to pick her girls up the other day and they asked her if she’d been to Carol’s house. LOL I make sure L has something for the girls every time she comes over. That time, I had ready to bake sugar cookies and a fresh half gallon of vanilla ice cream plus veggies and things for a good dinner. Gots to take care of my real estate guru! LOL She is the best thing to happen to me in quite a while.

Our rain finally quit and everything is so green it’s not to be believed. Just love it…

I’m more than a bit tired tonight, so will close this with blessings and happiness for all. Please be safe, take care of yourself and be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

    I hope you find a buyer soon. I need to go through all my jewelry with my granddaughters and let them take what they want.

      It was such fun to go through all of my ‘junque’ jewelry–I found so many things that a little girl would love to own. Never realized I’d acquired so much ‘kid-level’ jewelry. LOL

    It sounds like you had a lovely day. I’m glad you enjoyed the visits.


  3. We don’t have children… therefore no grandchildren, but I love the idea of passing on jewelry pieces to someone who would appreciate them. I don’t have anything fancy, but often costume pieces are more fun.

    Good luck on your home sale!

      Me too… I’ve been thinking of you a lot these past few days–no real reason comes to mind other than seeing your face and thinking ‘wonder what she’s doing right now?’ LOL Missing you for some reason… Hugs me
