Our house has been on the market for two weeks now. The first weekend it was for sale we got two offers. We've received four now in total. I've gone into this with no expectations but I also know how the Universe works its magic for us all the time so I'm not too surprised. We've accepted an offer and the house should be going into contract in the next couple of days. We've also fallen in love with a house in Cornwall-on-Hudson that would be perfect for our family and our needs right now. Again, I have no expectations. I learned my lesson when I fell in love with that big old house last year before we were ready to buy anything new. Once our house goes into contract we can take the next step toward officially moving. Yes, it's still bittersweet but now we're feeling excited as well.
One of the things I'm going to miss the most is taking photos of the wildlife that visits our current backyard. In particular, the birds and squirrels that come to feed at our little pear tree all year 'round.
I've taken countless photos from my dining room window these last few years since discovering my love for photography. I've captured so many different kinds of birds feasting from the suet dispenser that hangs in our little tree. My favorites are probably the cardinals in the winter time when they are pretty much the only bright color out there. But in the summer when the pears are ready to be picked, my favorites are the squirrels. I had just remarked to my husband that I was a little worried that I hadn't seen any squirrels around for most of the summer and, lo and behold, this little guy was up on our pool deck munching away yesterday.
He was definitely camera shy and only let me take this one photo thru a foggy window before he ran away with the pear still in his mouth. : )
We're definitely going to miss this little pear tree of ours. The family that we hope will be buying our house was very impressed with it so my hope is that their family will love it as much as ours has.
Now we're off to celebrate my middle guy's 19th birthday with king crab legs and cheddar biscuits. Can you guess where we're going?? : )
Many blessings for a beautiful Thursday evening ~ Wendy
