Winds of change

So much has happened in the past week. The same day that we lost our dear Maggie, the listing for the house became active and we had to rush home and finish sorting out boxes in the basement suite.

There were three showings that day and even more arranged for the next day.  In the night a huge windstorm blew branches down from all the trees in the front yard. So Thursday morning we spent a couple of early hours raking it all up.

By Thursday night we'd had three offers on the house and we accepted the best one.

So the house is sold--in just two days!

This was what we wanted but it's all happening very fast.  We need to take some time to adjust.  So this weekend we're slowing down and trying to absorb the changes that blew through our lives last week. We still have nine weeks to sort things out and prepare for the move to our smaller place.


  1. Best news ever ! Congratulations !

    My home in Laguna Beach sold fast too. Not as fast as yours it took 2 weeks but I took it and ran. It was right before the bubble burst and it was good it sold that quick.
    Your very lucky that you will be living in the same area with all your family and friends. Plus you have a wonderful home to move to plus the time to absorb it all. (and pack !)
    Congratulations again ! I am so happy for you.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. Thanks Parsnip. We are indeed lucky to be able to be in the same area.
