Tell me more about where you are moving? I know the decision wasn't made lightly, you love your little patch of land like I do. The only thing that would move me would be family. I haven't looked up where you are going, is it the Canadian side of the Methow here? Twisp & Omak? Beautiful country that area but too cold winters & dry. I complain about the rain but don't like to irrigate either! Watered the yard just 1x this summer! Better go pester something before I implode! J
Jody, surely do hope that you went and pestered something, or better yet -- poked something, wouldn't wanna see or hear of ya' imploding now, would we.
Where on earth did you get the idea that I may be moving to the Twisp, Omak, Methow.....I did not have a single clue as to what you were speaking about, so I googled these words. It appears that they are places alongside the Canadian/American border. I didn't delve any deeper because that is not even close to where we may move.
We are moving because of my family. You said that you would not ever move, unless it was because of family. I said that I would never move. We have been here almost 20 years and have created a paradise. I do not brag here, but my place is like an enormous park (maybe just a little bit on the wildside in places, hee, hee, smiling). But I have spent 18 years working hard, developing the land, creating gardens that even the Queen of England would be proud to love, and so on and so on. It has been a work of love....now the last of my children are moving away (along with my Grandsons). I could not bear to be any further distance away from them than one hour's drive. Hence our initiation to move. It is a very difficult decision, as you know, and can imagine. My family means more to me than anything else in this world, and to be close by....I can say no more. I have been very fortunate to have shared my property with my Daughter, her Husband and my two Grandsons for the past 7 years, they were only 20 feet from our home in a beautiful mobile home, which my Husband had built a large addition on, for when they moved to our property. It has been nothing short of a magical moment in time, sharing my life with my beloved progeny. The time has come to move on.
Here I go again....I am off topic, I am ramblin', this may annoy many, but please, do not slight me, forgive me.....as I cannot help myself some of these times to ramble, and so I do. I really mean it, my deepest apology. So, still, have that most wonderful day, life, health, and every other good wish under this sun. Cindi
Oh Jody, right......google this place where we are heading, one hour's drive from this central location (or maybe a little less or more). We are thinking more of an area close to here called Sorrento, but who know's where the wind will take us, smiling
My oldest Daughter has moved to this area, in a small town called
Grindrod, British Columbia
