Four grown kids, six delightful grandchildren, constant, long-time partner. A retired academic, I'm adapting to life in a Vancouver condo after decades in a waterfront home on a very small (Canadian) West Coast island. Keen to discover what new priorities emerge, what interests persist, in this urban life after 60!
This is the day. We have a few more items to deal with before we tape the last box or two closed (quickly run bed linens through washer and dryer and pack them up with the pillows). But I came downstairs this morning to this in the living room
And this in the kitchen
And that action is pretty much happening in every room, so we're just about ready for the truck which arrives by barge about 11.
I took my cuppa out on the back deck and thought a bit about leaving this
And that I won't see my oak-leaf Hydrangea (quercifolia)'s lacy white flower head this year--it's just beginning to bloom
But, you know, perhaps so are we...
At any rate, no more time to sit around contemplating. Another few hours of work and a bit of fussing over handling of fragile objects, and then we're outta here!
