Well, my hopes to sell the house in NC to my mother's neighbor were dashed. He called on Tuesday to say that he was retiring at the end of the year, couldn't sell his condo in DC, had just purchased a nearby property, yada, yada, yada.....all of which means that 2 months later I'm back to square one on that issue. It also means there will be less made from the sale once the realtor gets his cut AND I will have to deal with everything in the house SOON! I don't know where to start!
And if that isn't enough, I've just been summoned for district jury duty......in Charleston! Earlier in the week I sent in the info they required and today I faxed a request that my participation be postponed. I explained my situation and told them I didn't think I could take on anything else, especially something requiring focus and clear thinking. I hope they will take my word for it.
On other fronts, I'm slowly but surely getting the house in better shape, though I'm not being fanatical about it! Yesterday I went through loads of recipes, most of which I've never used! They are now pared down to one little file type box. The next job will be to go through the island in the kitchen and then recipe books. So, one small section at a time......
Our weather continues to be nice. We've gotten lots of rain, which makes walking a challenge, but everything is nice and green......and it hasn't gotten really hot yet. The political scene has also heated up and the chat on our local Drinking Liberally site has been active. Here are three of my favorite cartoons from the week.
and my personal favorite.....
This week, the week of July 4th., is shaping up to be a good one, I hope! Sharon and I are having lunch tomorrow. Tuesday night is Drinking Liberally and that should be an animated group with all that has happened over the last few weeks. They've also changed the meeting location and I can almost walk there!! Gayle, one of my younger friends....the freelance writer who moved back to NJ several years ago....is coming down this week and wants to get together. There will be a 4th of July celebration at BG from noon to 2:30 and then I've been invited to an evening gathering at my friend Cheryl's. She and her roommates live right on the May River and one of their neighbors is doing fireworks. There's nothing after that, but that's a very heavy social schedule for me and I'll probably need the end of the week to recover!
Hope it's a great week for everyone.
