The showing went very well. The prospective buyer and her agent were blown away with how cool the house stays without the air conditioner on. I showed them where the property boundaries are, we chatted briefly, then I went back out to front porch. She loved our house and asked me what I would do if she bought it - was I ready to move? I assured her I certainly was. Her dog loved the yard and she had a hard time getting him back in the car, so she quipped - I have to buy your house for my dog!
I went to lunch first with Alexia and Christina, my beautiful girls. Moving away from them is going to be horrible and the only downside to this this move.
I'm going to have to step it up, although Melissa is coming up the first week of July to help me pack. I have an appointment with Luke O'Brien July 1st for an estimate on moving expenses. It seems things are falling in place - all except for the llamas. I simply cannot find anyone to take them.
We got a call yesterday morning from our realtor's office, asking if it would be okay for our buyers to come out, just them, without their agent. It ended up being a three-hour visit. We seemed to have a lot to talk about and I know they will fit in here just fine. They wanted to walk to the foot of the property, but first to the top of our little pinnacle. They loved the view from there and the dog was having the time of his life.
I'm also thrilled that our buyers have a great yard in town and love the yard that we've created here from nothing. They're both artists and have a large studio now and want to built one here. When I told them there was power and water to the llama shed, they knew exactly where they wanted to put it. I know it's not over until the fat lady sings.
She asked if we have birds and sadly, the birds are quiet in the heat of the afternoon which is when they were here, but the answer is yes we do. I wish they could have heard the quail coming down in the early evening to scratch under the bird feeders. I will miss those silly birds very much and know I'll miss our place very much. I'll be homesick but I also know that moving to Bend is what we need to do at this stage of our lives. To be continued.....
