If you’ve noticed that I haven’t been posting very often lately, it’s because I’ve been busy painting the house and getting it ready to sell. Well, I put an ad up on Craigslist last Saturday, and there’s already someone extremely interested in buying it. No paperwork yet, so I still have time to change my mind if I need to. I really thought I’d have a bit more time to figure out where I’m going next. Oops.
My daughter says I should find somewhere to move to before selling this house. (She’s so reasonable!) But I do tend to throw caution to the wind, and I’m in the mood for an adventure. I think…
So, here’s what I’m looking for – if you have any suggestions about where I can find it, please let me know:
I would like a very small house (600 square feet or less) with a yard that’s big enough for a shed that I can use for my studio. I also want room for a veggie garden and lots of flowers and fruit trees and bushes. And a spot for a few ducks (maybe – still dithering about the ducks). There doesn’t need to be a garden and fruit trees now, but space to plant them would be nice. I would like the summers to be pleasantly warm but not muggy, and the winters to be cool but not Arctic. I hate driving in the snow. I want to be in a smallish town or city, where I can walk to the library and grocery store. And all this must be really cheap, and be within easy driving distance to an airport so I can occasionally visit family in the NW and Midwest.
Not asking for much, am I? (Hey, one can dream…) Anyone have any idea where I can find all this?
On another note, the site has been crashing a lot lately, and the image upload plugin may be causing it. I may need to disable the plugin soon, (if I can figure out how to do that without completely erasing all the comments. Sigh…) If the plugin goes away we’ll need to find another way to share our projects with each other. If you have any suggestions about that, too, I’m all ears.
