I haven't been on here for a long time. Lots has happened in my life since I was last on. Some of it good and some of it not so good. All in all I am pretty content but right now I am trying to sell our house so that I can move closer to family. Namely my youngest son and his family. You put so much into a home and think it is worth something. Then you try to sell it and buyers find so much they do not like or else it is not big enough or something they think they need is missing. I think as I cleaned out my house getting it ready for selling I discovered I had accumulated so much "stuff" and that is a problem with buyers. They too have too much stuff and so they require a larger place to put it. In my case we are going to a smaller home because we have realized we don't need "stuff." So that is my rant for this blog. I want my house to sell so I can move on!

This is what warm weather means. It means my hubby uncovers his little car after being under wraps for the winter. He only drives this around in weather that is warm and no worries about getting stuck in snow. It is an older car. It doesn't look like it but it is 24 years old. It still runs well too. Now he didn't get it new, he bought it from someone selling it before moving to California. It had some problems but he fixed it up a bit with a new top and a few small things. We like to ride around with the top down and enjoy the freedom of it all. I personally only like to ride on back roads and around close by areas. The thought of being on an expressway with Big trucks and lots of traffic scares me. I am alright with our normal sized car but one that could fit under a tractor trailer does not thrill me. So for the summer we will be enjoying rides in our little car for fun times. The other car for trips to the grocery and places far from home.

It is finally getting warm outside. I am finally getting over a fall I took way back in November. Life is good! I have some Spring tulips coming up. Soon I will have a new glider sitting on my porch. We are still in the process of assembling it. I actually bought it used on Amazon and I think it was used because who ever bought it before couldn't get it put together. It is a bit of a challenge but the hubby can do it. He said the average person who doesn't have a lot of tools and know how on doing these things probably would give up. Maybe that is why it was sent back and now I have it. Good for me because the price was right. I haven't blogged for a long long time. I really just haven't felt like doing anything. This past Winter has been a rough one. I was beginning to think it would never end. I am thinking now that it seems to be gone I might get back to this. Blogspot doesn't make it easy though, sigh. So just saying I am still here and wishing everyone a pleasant day. Watch out for the potholes when out driving. Like I said it was a BAD Winter.
