We drove to Lake of the Ozarks before daylight, Saturday morning. We were on a mission; a furniture moving mission.
We’ve decided to list our lake condo for sale. We will sell most of the furnishings with the condo. There are a few pieces we want to keep and the kiddo’s asked for a couple of pieces of furniture before it is listed.
I packed up a few of my good dishes to bring back this trip, also. After we give the condo a good cleaning, we are contacting someone who was referred to us, by friends and hope to have the condo for sale by the end of April or first week of May.
As much as we love our place at the lake and as much as we both love the Ozarks, keeping two homes is not as easy as it once was. We thought we might be reluctant to give up the condo. In the end, we are relieved to not have the worry and work.
We are resting, this Sunday afternoon, after working on the back porch this morning.
J bought a new lawnmower last week. He has been working in the yard. After having the yard taken care of by someone else the last couple of Summers, J is very happy at the prospect of getting back to yard work. He is in his glory!
One of the pieces of furniture we brought home is this tall cabinet that sat in the family room at the lake. I am giving it a try on the back porch.
I added the bird houses and iron rabbit to the mantel, this morning. For now, there are two ferns on the hearth and the begonia I had on the kitchen island for Easter. When the weather is warmer I hope to bring geraniums and other flowering plants to the back porch. I am still planning the planter of cascading flowers for the mantel.
I chose accessories that will be easily kept clean with the garden hose, when pollen sets to work in earnest, a week or three from now.
When we had our home on the market last year, we approached the experience with a what will be will be attitude. That is how we are approaching marketing the condo.
Que sera sera…what will be will be.
