Hello everyone....This past year has been surreal !! It's been quite a while since I posted on CW, so I figured I'd better check in. Hope you and yours are all safe and well as we finally begin to emerge from this nightmare. I'm just now past the two week interval since my second dose of the vaccine so I'm good to go. My parents went into assisted living last March just before the lockdown. So I finally got to see them for the first time last week face to face.
Now I have to deal with clearing their home and getting it ready to sell. Then, hopefully I will be ready to move out to my sisters farm that I've been working on over the past 3 years with my nephew (for the muscle). I'll officially be the resident caretaker. As the pictures show its a beautiful 10 acre property with a pond plus out buildings near the college of Oberlin in Ohio. My sister lives in New Jersey and we were sharing a booth at the local antique mall. She would visit once a month and bring new treasures. Sadly we decided to pack up and leave after 4 years last May. The pandemic was really hard on all businesses as you know. So now we have a whole barns worth of treasures. Way too much for the little farm house. It's been hard to pick and choose but I think it's shaping up nicely. Between the two of us we had no problem furnishing all the rooms in the house. The only new piece was the sofa. My sister hasn't visited or seen the house in over a year. While I've sent her pictures it doesn't compare to actually being there. Can't wait to see her again !
Here's to a fresh start for everyone and a return to some sense of normalcy.
All the best my CW friends. -Mike-
