Flowers are magical! So are commercial cannabis growers!

The month of July has flown past — the first two weeks I was madly trying to finish some quarterly/monthly/semi-annual financial reports, the second half largely spent hanging out on the deck with Elder Son and Wife. Although the hanging out gave me lots of time for knitting… and it was delightful to have them here for an entire week.
Kym blogged about celebrating her small wins, and I think I need to do that. Big wins take more time. But as I sit here trying to think of some small wins to celebrate, I am coming up empty. That tells me that either 1, I had no small wins (not likely), or B, that I need to work harder to remember them.
On another front, the plan to sell our house in Minneapolis proceeds apace. Good grief, there are a lot of things to be done! The big things — painting inside and out, refinish the hardwood floors, finish the electrical upgrade, new flooring in kitchen, half bath, sun room, and finished basement — were done weeks/months ago. Now Smokey is finishing the little things — install the front door handle and lock, replace a couple light fixtures, install a ceiling fan, etc.,etc., etc. Today was the realtor open house, and our agent will list the house tomorrow. She had the house staged and had a professional photographer come in to take photos for the listing. Keep your fingers crossed for a bidding war!
Yo-yo Ma in the gale… spectacular! And public libraries… my favorite places on earth!
Would you consider posting those photos of your house that is for sale? I loved the library decision, and You You Ma playing in concert with birdsong was spectacular. I think that hosting your son and his wife was a BIG win. It also allowed for quality time spent together, story telling, sharing, laughter, all of which does not happen so intensely once a child becomes an adult and moves out with his own career and family. Kudos! Bonus, more knitting done!
Yes! Yo Yo Ma in the gale is so beautiful. And flowers along the road in Long Newnton–what a brilliant idea. Anti-rant Tuesdays for the win and lower blood pressure!
I’m going to cross my fingers for a bidding war for you, and ALSO cross them for NO bidding war for me. We’re waiting to hear back if an offer we made on a house is accepted or not, and it’s nerve-wracking. Even though we don’t *have* to move, it’s a lot more stressful than I had properly anticipated.
Yo-Yo Ma is one of the few people on the planet who makes me smile even when I hear his name.
