It’s hard to believe that it has only been a week since I gave up my badge and email address at the Oregon Humane Society. To be truthful, I am sleeping so much better but perhaps that is because we have just been petal to the metal in closing the house down.
We are down to 2 borrowed chairs, two beds on box spring, a chair, a dresser and a teak outdoor bistro table and chairs in the house.
We made a trip up north to Anacortes to put what’s left of our possession into storage and close up the Beach House for the winter. There was just not much that went into our 5×10 storage space and it will be fascinating to see what else might go in there after our six month trip in the Road House.
There is still a laundry list of things to do before we leave for our post retirement/closing the house decompression trip to Hawaii next week. The Road House took a trip today to Peterson Caterpillar for pre-trip engine diagnostic and preventive maintenance. More furniture went to consignment and the chest freezer was defrosted and cleaned out so it can be sold this weekend. The garage still looks like a bomb went off in it but I am feeling like it will all just come together.
In between all that today, we managed to have lunch at an old favorite haunt – The Buffalo Gap and I got in a three mile walk with Mr. Bentley. All in all, a great day and a productive week.
