Four days and counting…

.. until I move to Vegas. Funny how it was only 12 days ago since I was planning my fall garden, and stayed busy propagating citrus trees! The very same day my daughter told me on the phone (she was visiting her dad,) that she wanted to start school with her step sister, in her dads city. It feels like in another lifetime.

I bought a car, and sold my truck today. The two last big things on my to do list. Not the Pontiac I was planning on buying, but a reliable Chevy Impala. Now I am ready as can be. All the question marks are transformed into exclamation points. Now when I don’t have to stress about little things (like finding homes for horses, buying a car, selling a truck etc…) that needs to come together, I’m actually happy that I am working four more days. It gives me just the right amount of time, to spend time with some special NorCal people this weekend. (Maybe even get a haircut?) I feel like I had help getting everything come together in less than two weeks.

I purposely planned my new adventure to start on a Monday. I like traveling in the beginning of a new week, somehow it feels more adult. I don’t know why.  Right now I’m just happy. I spent a couple hours with a dear friend today, that I haven’t seen nearly as much as I should of lately. I’m sure that contributes to my overall happy feeling as well. Life is pretty darn good, and I’m excited to head towards new adventures. Sometimes I just need to get things done. Yesterday I was slightly frustrated to not get anywhere. Now I’m exactly where I should be at the moment. 

I’m very much looking forward to be able to spend time outdoors again. To get away from the smoke. To be able to breath, and to take pictures of amazing things again. Get my life back in a way. Still, nothing compares to be able to give my little, big girl, a big hug…four more days..

I hope you’re having an awesome day today 🙂

    • Thank you for your support John 🙂 I’ve been looking at your photos from Las Vegas. It makes the move more real to me (I haven’t been there in several years, and I’ve never spend a whole lot of time there.) Thank you for sharing them.


  1. How exciting! Who ever will live where you are leaving will get an awesome garden! Amazing what you’ve accomplished in a short amount of time, but you did it all!! That’s satisfying, just 4 more days. ❤️

  2. Thank you for asking!! My garden is okay. My tomatoes are doing GREAT, thankful they are in a container. I’m only getting one small pumpkin, will be pulling out dead stuff this weekend.

    I bought and planted seeds in 2 other containers I have. One container I’m starting green beans, the other container I planted spinach and corn salad plants. We will see what pops up! It’s fun and my granddaughter helped me plant the seeds! She’s enjoying the garden and loves being outside when it’s not too hot!! ❤️ I know you’ll have another garden soon, can’t wait till you move and get settled in…. Safe travels next week! 😎

    • That’s wonderful! What great experience for your granddaughter 🙂 Gardening is pure magic, I mean even for adults, but especially for kids. I saw the coolest time-lapse video this morning, about different kind of seeds growing. It is magic 🙂

  3. My first car was a ’74 Chevy Impala 🙂 They were a LOT bigger in those days.
    Glad you got everything sorted out in quick order (VERY impressive)! Like the song ‘Blue Skies’ “everything is going your way.” Please keep us updated on this new chapter, okay?
    Curious me …Question: What happened to the food from your garden that you preserved for winter? If you canned it, are you taking it?
