Wordless Wednesday: Sunday Afternoon; Tuesday Morning


We're fine here. Opened escrow on another house. Completely in love, like the best rebound love affair for an aching heart. This one has the most amazing potential for working out. We're happy. When we feel more secure we'll post more photos. Now you see this: a spring day on Sunday; a winter day on Tuesday.

Oh, winter, will you ever let us go?
Yes, winter answers, yes I always do.


PS: Roger trimmed his beard, but has not cut his hair. The cautious optimism of true love.

  1. Oh, bless you my friends! I do so hope this one works out just the way you want it to! And again, I'm keeping everything crossed for the perfect outcome!

  2. I'm crossing my fingers, crossing my toes, crossing my eyes, even crossing the streams!

  3. Following along on your housing saga and always hoping you will find a just right nest soon. In the meantime, the illustrations to your story continue to delight!

  4. Can't wait to see photos of this rebound house. Sometimes we have to swim thru sludge to get to the clear water. Toes crossed.

  5. That rainbow was an omen, wasn't it? It took you months to find the last property, and about a week to find this one. The land is definitely choosing you to be its caretaker, nudging you this way, then making you wait so you don't turn in the wrong direction, then beckoning you on again.

  8. Hey Robin-
    Nice little love story about your possible new home. I've just returned from Santa Cruz. I planned to look up Michael and Kim, but came back early. I did see Thea who loved hearing about you both and told me she had arranged your first "date."
    Love, M.E.

  9. Thanks for all the wonderful supportive comments. We are so excited about this new property: five acres, ponds, cattails, beautiful home. Even more than we ever dreamed.

    M.E.-- that's so funny that you saw Thea. We lost track of her a few years back. It's true, she set up our first date. It was like being teenagers again back then: Pssst, hey roger, I know someone who wants to go out with you...
    And that was the beginning.

  15. I knew the right place would find you! And what a fortunate piece of property it is. It could have no better caretakers. So happy!

    P.S. Just read C. Corax's comment and saw how very similar our thoughts are. My first impulse was to erase the redundancy. But maybe it's not that. Maybe it's a confirmation...

  18. can't believe i am so late to this party...I got used to stopping by and finding you not at home.

    is that pond on the property? OMG. I can't wait to come up and experience it!

  19. That's good news. I hope it quickly becomes your house. I'll do as Pablo, crossing everything, for luck.

  21. Well, time's a-wastin'! What's going on down there?
    We got windblown tree junk all over our other place, and too many weeds everywhere...

  22. I hope everything checks out with the new place and that you'll soon have a new home. By the look of that snow, I guess you aren't missing out on putting in your garden just yet!

  23. I got distracted for a little while, and missed your good news until just now. Oh yaay (if yaay it is). With a pond you'll have lots of birds...

    My New Mexico friends are having snow and snow and snow again, snow still, and more snow.

    But there will be spring. Really.
