My Saturday Morning  
This morning I got up early, walked a few blocks to the weekly open air market on the town square, and bought a pound of fresh sausage and a loaf of Amish fresh-baked bread. I walked home and cooked breakfast for ladyat.

I love being Home.

In house sale news, the other house for sale in our Atlanta neighborhood is now under contract. They had lowered their price once more but we don't know how far below that price the actual sale will be - we'll find out after they close, sometime in August. Hopefully, our house will have sold by then.

It'd sure be nice to have sold the house before we go to Japan. Though scrambling to get moved will be a real mess...

Oh! My!

I just arrived recently at LJ -- now I know where you all disappeared to while we gafiated!

I've looked through your and ladyat's archives, but don't find this answer, so pardon my ignorance:

Why are you moving (I got the whereto part?) I mean, none of my business, but, I hope it's for good reasons, not sad? I read about your dad's pulmonary embolli (pits!) and that ladyat is doing better (thanks be) and I know how also pitsy it is to own two houses, neither and both of which are really Home. Did I miss something? (I know, a lot ...)

I'm so glad I found this place!

Definitely good reasons.

Essentially, it is all just a matter of Destiny - ladyat has always wanted a Victorian house and I've wanted to move back to the Midwest almost since I set foot in Georgia. It all pretty much came together in one of those "primal forces of nature" things.

It has been very nice to be here with Dad while he's in town, though he is pining for Florida and his latest project (managing the rebuild of the neighborhood sea walls) so we may send him off for the winter sooner than usual.

Hmmm. Midwest, hey? Isn't Danville too much South to be midwest? (I remember all the southern drawls when I lived in Evansville, IN.)

Does this put any closer, driving time, to us? See, I'd love to see your Victorian when it's done, and I can't wait to show off our new house.

Besides, I miss you guys!

Glad to hear that Destiny is still taking such good care of you both!

You heard all those drawls because Evansville is infested with Western Kentuckians...

We're definitely closer than we were in Atlanta, though your definition of "close" may vary. My perception of acceptable driving times underwent a change for the longer through those 20 years of being so far away from everything, such that our recent run up to Chicago seemed like a short stretch of the legs (barring getting stuck on 90, that is...)
