It’s been a LONG week. And I’m exhausted but I do want to have a record of what’s happening so here goes.
Friday October 19
We haven’t stayed long enough to hit the height of the color but it is pretty fine as I walk around for one last look.
I look out to the barnyard. Notice the corner of the shop in the yard on
the picture left.
I walk around to the the south east and look back at the walk out to the barnyard. There’s the ‘rest of the shop’.
On around to the front porch, I sit a while in the swing facing the mountains.
Around to the west yard. This is the view of the mountains which carry the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is the view that we see through living room bay window .
Humpback Rocks on the Blue Ridge Parkway is off to the left just beyond the middle of the picture.
Pretty hazy day for the mountains as I walk around to the north west looking toward the pond. It’s that small body mid picture left side. Actually it has become more like a wetland. Cattails abound.
I walk down to the pond and look back
I look up from the pond at the mountains. It’s just beautiful here. I love it with all my heart.
Time to say good bye.
We’re off down the road.
As we curve around the farm lane, I ask myself, why AM I leaving this lovely place at this most beautiful time of the year?
Because I have to.
David has his 3 month post transplant tests in Florida next week.
My 92 year old father moved to Colorado on Wednesday where my sister in law has found an assisted living facility for him. My part of this is to clean out the entire house and sell it.
So right now we are in Largo doing just that. I’m up to my ears in busy. 10 hour days. But I’ll post how we got here tomorrow or maybe a few days from now.
