Hope you have had a lovely couple of weeks.
We are celebrating!
My house has sold!
It sold after a day but we had to wait for the i's to be dotted and t's crossed for the sold sign to go up. We were able to cancel the open house for the Easter weekend, however, and have an egg hunt instead.
Sadly, I'd packed away most of the decorations and we had to settle for Dollarama chicks in the staged mums.
Thankfully, the bunny came in spite of the lack of decorations.
We had Easter brunch at the club since I thought there might be potential home buyers sitting at the table with us when we made our plans.
I love Easter brunch. It allows me to gussy up a bit. And yes, even though it's a sports club, they still provided lots of chocolate eggs.
We have had terrible weather: icy rain and snow. After a winter of mild, now there would be good skiing!
We've had to import spring this year.
Since the house has been for sale, I've been refusing to cook. This is my new form of sustenance.
I've been too distracted to write but I've been reading. I read Jessica Knoll's terrific Luckiest Girl Alive. I thought it would be triggering but it was quite healing, particularly when the author revealed her own story. I also read Jane Green's Saving Grace. I love Jane Green. Next up on the docket is Caroline Leavitt's Cruel Beautiful World. I adore the cover.
Mr. Selfridge and Nashville are back on the air. Love both of those series. They will keep me distracted while I finish the last of the packing. Once my house is packed, we can turn our attention to Mr. Dwell's house. Thankfully, we are keeping that one for a while while we figure out whether to sell, reno, or rent it out. Maybe one of those design shows could help us with that. We have a very telegenic dog!
(Speaking of which, Serena is looking forward to reporting for duty as a therapy dog. She starts tomorrow so please wish us luck...)
Last evening, the Mr. and I embarked on something that tears many couples apart: we went to the mattress shop to buy a new bed. We ended up splashing out on a Tempurpedic with some kind of high-tech platform thingy that guarantees us excellent sleep for the rest of our lives. Oh, how I love the promise of purchased happiness!
We move next week so I'll be offline for a bit but will be catching up with all of you via the blogworld and instagram.
