G'Bye, July

Happy Friday!  Happy Last Day of July!  Happy FRIDAY FAVE FIVES!

1.  Today is my youngest child's birthday.  I prayed for this girl!  She's a treasure, and I will always be thankful for her.

2.  Last weekend, I met my art group friends in a park. We sat in appropriate social distancing chairs we brought and discussed another chapter of Hidden Art by Edith Schaeffer.  We're almost done with the book and it has been a great review for me as I had read in a long time ago.  How I appreciate this group of women--just five of us.  

3.  After that, one friend and I walked up the horse trail by the park.  She wanted to show me the sculptures and animals at one property and the vineyard at another.  I love the terrain of this area.  It reminds me of Italy (as it should since we have the same mediterranean climate.

4.  Yes, things are moving forward and after one small glitch, it looks like the house sale will be finished in less than two weeks.  [insert deer frozen in the headlights look]

5.  A crew of guys from church showed up this morning to move all our boxes from storage and bring them to our home, so they can be packed into the moving truck when it is loaded.  Firefighter guy and his young brother-in-law and one other man.  Besides our being so blessed by their strong arms and willing help, I loved listening to those brothers act like brothers. [Smirk]  Honestly, we couldn't have done it without them!
So much to be thankful for.  All the help and care of people we are leaving.  All the excitement of family who are expecting us next month.  What are you thankful for this week?

Oh my goodness now you start where I just finished or to be honest will finish next week, you start ! It's hard work ! We lived 45 years in our house and there was a lot of rubbish ! I gave a lot away to a charity shop for battered women and other institutions. Now I start (but not immediately) to put everything in place in our rooms ! The landscape of your walk looks beautiful !

Happy birthday to your pretty girl and i LOVE he photos!! They DO look like Italy. The first photo reminds me of when we walked the grounds at Villa Borghese in Rome. A truly magical place.

Happy birthday to your lovely daughter. I'm assuming "closing" is like our "completion" i.e. when you and all your belongings have to be out of the house. Good luck with the move. I know how daunting it can be and we're only going about 5 miles!
