while everyone sleeps. I am on the deck. I love my backyard and this deck. I guess, I better enjoy it while I can. I bought a new house. Well, it is an older home full of character and warmth and soon to be filled with LOVE....my favorite thing. The only thing I will really miss about this house is this deck and this setting. My new house is in town. It's a good thing to move to town. I will be able to manage the smaller place so much better.....and my boys will be able to run amuk with their friends through the streets without having to have me drive them. I am planning on purging all my overflow of things. The gluttony of belongings. I am truly looking forward to that. I have plans for simplicity and minimalist living and order. It's a shame I feel I have to physically move to achieve that but I do. This place is overwhelming to me as you know. I wonder if my new place will be all I think it will be. I'm excited to find out. For now, I will just enjoy this coffee and open my eyes and look around and enjoy this scenery. I love it..... and I will miss this deck....very much. Funny. I haven't listened to my George Strait playlist since I told you I wasn't going to listen to it anymore. And just now, I turned it on. I made it through 2 songs and I am crying....which makes me laugh. Good grief.
