End of Another Month

It’s the end of another month. And not just any month – but the end of August 2012! Tomorrow is September 1st. The month that our house will go on sale. Over the past couple of weeks, even with the cleanup and arranging, I have been enjoying the fact that we don’t have any major projects that have to be done, and taking a big sigh of satisfaction. I don’t even know that it has completely sunk in yet. After all, these projects have been going on for quite a while. They started back in July of 2008 when we had the siding and windows replaced, and we have been working on this house ever since. Four years!

The days have been beautiful – nice warm days, highs in the mid 80s, and then getting down to the 60s when the sun goes down. I love this weather. Autumn actually used to be my favorite season, only in recent years I haven’t enjoyed it too much, because the coolness reminds me that winter is coming. But hopefully this is the last year I will have to spend any of the winter season up here, so I will be able to enjoy the colors and changing seasons once again.

Next Wednesday we are taking the fiver to Diederich’s RV in Coxsackie. They are going to install a washer/dryer – one of the combination types. When I rented an apartment, I used to have to cart my laundry to laundromats, and I hated it. So there’s never been any question in my mind that we would have one added to our future home. And since we are down to the last few months before we hit the road, we’ve decided it’s time.

The countdown to our house sale has now moved into the final stretch – NINE DAYS left.


  1. Woohoo!! I'm with you on not wanting to be here for winter. The longer it stays warm or even mild, the happier I am :)

  2. I love my combo Splendide washer/dryer. Just be sure to get the kind that is vented to the outside. Dries much faster.

    1. That is good to know - we are getting the vented one.

  3. we are all counting down with you!..I am sure you will love having the onboard washer dryer combo!!
