Here's a birds-eye view of our route:
(Are those really buzzards?) Back and forth we go, from our old place (near the right edge of the photo, three-quarters down from the top), to the new one (near left edge of photo). The photo was taken from the top of this hill. It's only a few miles, but the move seems...huge.
We're rummaging through years of piled-up stuff, pondering: keep or toss? Yarn stash, insect collection, art supplies: keep. Frying pan collection: do we really need so many? Awhile back, we were on a quest for the "perfect" pan. Maybe some of the runners-up could go. Some things are baffling: did I have to buy every painting-instruction book in existence?
Friends are arriving to help - hello, thanks so much! We need some music for moving. Any suggestions? Here's the playlist, so far:
