I should have known! A beautiful day yesterday was the harbinger of a very strange day today.
After bagels at Panera Bread we started off with a walk at Wehr Nature Center. There’s a lot of volunteer work going on out there and some of the volunteers were well older than we — lift that shovel, swing that rake….. Afterwards I picked up my old pruning shears from Kathryn and then we headed home. She took half a day off to do some exterior painting on their place – part of the pre-listing cleanup for them.
I heard from our agent about the buyer/buyers’ agent review of the inspection and to me it sounded as if we were/are in pretty decent shape. Little things have me still wondering whether I’m getting the entire story. There seem to be communication gaffs aplenty. I don’t have time or the inclination to explain all the gorey details right now. Frankly I’m tired of blogging about all the in’s and out’s of real estate — it’s never been my favorite subject and I’m only writing enough to save my own sanity. After all of this is said and done, I may write it up in a single story. It might be fun to see it all in perspective. But for now… I’ll take a pass on explaining.
It was a busy afternoon. Peg managed to get the lawn mowed. I got the wisteria pruned as well as the grapes — I know — wrong time ‘o year to do so, but had to be done. We had people coming and going through the afternoon but by 5 p.m. life had settled down again.
One thing for sure — having too many projects up in the air at any one time is just not my cup-‘o-tea. Too many balls in the air. Too many balls by far.
I can’t be sure Peg had a good birthday. The morning walk was rather balanced out by mowing the lawn. Dinner was lovely — back on our veggie diet
