It provides much-needed storage in a 165-year-old house with one makeshift closet!

I must apologize, dear readers, (if any of you are still out there) for the severe lapse.  In the midst of all the crazy stress of life(particularly acute in the past year), we MOVED!  That’s right.  We are in a different “Town Mouse House.”  It’s an apartment, actually.  It cuts our travel time to “Country Mouse House” literally in half!  We did not plan this – this is the kind of thing we only heard could happen to other people – not us!  A friend of a friend asked if we’d consider selling our house because it was in the right location/school district.  We said we would.  They came and looked, liked what they saw, made an offer, and we accepted.  It happened so fast, I have to admit, I believe I’m still in shock.  Things have a way of working out.  If asked this time last year if we’d have moved, I would have said “definitely NOT!”  But the stars aligned, and we are that much closer to our dream of living in the country full-time.  What lies ahead?  Several projects, including, but not limited to, a kitchen renovation.  Oh boy!  Here we go!

Blessings to all!  We are currently trying to stay warm and dry amidst this Winter Weather.
