"Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating." ~ Carl von Clausewitz

My oh my. I am happy to say that we have been able to catch our breaths a bit. Our first few days post house closing were honestly a bit of a fog. A couple of good examples for you of how pooped out we were: The first night at our friends' home, Bruce snored quite loudly, which is usually a sign that he is exhausted. I knew that I had brought earplugs with me, so I went to get them and decided to grab a drink of water on my way back to bed. Earplugs in my left hand, glass of water in my right - middle of the night and exhausted. I popped those earplugs right into my mouth as if they were my morning medications! I realized immediately what I had done, and had to work hard to not wake Bruce up with my laughter! 

Not to be outdone, the next morning Bruce took a shower in his socks! I think that you get the picture! Happily, we are somewhat past our initial fogginess. We have a family event this upcoming weekend, and will then begin to figure out just what in the heck we are going to do!

It's all good though. The friends that we are currently staying with live in a beautiful spot with wonderful walking areas out back. On Mother's Day, I took my camera and headed out in the sunshine. It has been quite some time since I've had a relaxing walk with my camera, and I must say that it did me a world of good.


  1. Beautiful pictures, Tracy! Summer is coming!

    Oh, my earplugs in the mouth and socks in the shower - I get the picture ;) But these will be the stories that stay with you and which you'll be laughing about - or rather are already laughing about! :) Enjoy your weekend and I hope it will all sort out soon! <3

    1. Thanks you so much Nancy! I do feel like I'm living a bit of an alternate life - it's a bit odd, but I know that things will settle down!
