I took a lot of photos in the studio today, hoping they will help me orient my equipment and help me create a new studio in the new house. I won't have any more space than here, just different.
We have gone from no action to craziness. I invited our buyers, Jennifer and Travis, to come out to the farmers market in our valley and they did just that this past Sunday. I noticed a Blue Heeler mix on leash and commented on it when the woman said - actually, I think we're your buyer. They took me completely off guard and I was so happy to see them, and I introduced them to as many people as I could. They had to leave early but Jennifer said she is going to be out for the inspection this Friday so I told we'd talk more then. I'm so happy to pass on the information I wish that someone had shared with us when we moved in. She had no clue that none of the utilities come from Nevada - power is from a California cooperative and phone/DSL are out of Idaho.
Yesterday was my last book group meeting. I have facilitated this group since the library opened in 2005, first as an employee and then after I retired, as a volunteer. Friendships have grown through the books we've read and the conversations about them. I am at a loss of words to express how much I will miss this group of ladies. They make me see books in a different way and they make me laugh. They gave me a wonderful send-off and a generous Kindle gift card!
Meanwhile, while I was in town for book club, both our Oregon mortgage banker Mike and real estate broker Ken called. Mike is working to get us a 4.25% or less interest rate and Ken said our inspection is Monday, can one of the boys come by near the end. I texted them and they've got it covered.
I should be packing my studio but instead I put a warp on today because I really need weaving to help me settle down. The back beam has to come off to move it so I'll weave as far as I get and then cut the rest off. The movers will be here two weeks from tomorrow to pack up the house. The dogs will be fine but our kitty will not, so I'm going to drive up to Bend with her on the 22nd and put her in a kennel that Ian and I saw when we picked up cats with DIL Missy during our July visit - that is the first available date. That's what I mean - craziness. Moving in not for sissies!!
