Whew! It has been a crazy month! An old friend kicked me out of my depression over yet another year just making ends meet in Brookings. So, to make a long story short - I moved to Whidbey Island, WA a week ago! It was a humbling, tiring experience. I received so much love and good wishes that I was overwhelmed. It is hard leaving a place where I know someone virtually ANYWHERE I go in town, to a place where I am, once again, a total stranger. But opportunities are limited in Brookings and I also want to see more of this incredible Northwest!
I hired a gentleman to tow my house since I do not own a truck. We made the trip in two days with no mishaps! Hooray! I decided to live in a mobile home park for now, because it is cheaper than an RV park. I do miss life in the RV park, though. My house looks like a tiny foot in a big shoe in the mobile home lot!
Rosie is an old hand at modeling. Those are ducklings in the top photo - makes me think of that story "Make Way for Ducklings!" which was part of our reading book in the third grade and I always enjoyed reading it. It's a bit hard to see the mermaid behind Rosie in the bottom photo. I put his leash on her hand and someone had put a bandana on her earlier in the day.
More about the move later...
