What I Will Miss

I took some pictures on my walk today and thought about the things I will miss once the move is complete.

I will miss my home of the past 22 years.

And I will miss quiet walks in the country.

Land in transition.  The forest is marching its merry way into the meadows.

But there is still meadow.
This is the view of my house from the hill behind it.  The fall colors are unusually muted for this time of year.  I had to look down to see some pretty leaves.



I may be moving into town, but I will still be in Vermont after all.  These scenes are never far away and always easy to find.

But I will miss my house...just not taking care of it by myself.

  2. Most changes have positives and negatives. Leaving will be hard, starting new will be invigorating.

  3. It is a very beautiful home and area. I am sure that you will miss it but there is something to be said for less work, upkeep, and worry. You will do well no matter where you go.

  4. What a lovely, poignant post. I know how you feel! When we moved from our lakeside cottage of 50 years. You embark on a new adventure!

  5. You seem to have a right attitude. There used to be a gypsy in my soul but no more. I hope to stay here as long as humanly possible.

  6. Change is hard both when we initiate it or it happens to us without warning. But you seem to also be eyes wide open for new opportunities and new challenges and that is certainly life!

  7. Your old home is beautiful. I am considering down sizing my home too. Consider it our chance to give a new family a place to grow their family.

  8. It looks too big for one person anyway. Good luck, Olga.

  9. The house is lovely but the surrounding property is just beautiful. You pretty much had the area to yourself. The memories you built there are not part of the sale and will always be with you.

  12. I can imagine how hard it is to leave your beautiful home. However, I know you'll love wherever you move to and it will be easier to upkeep.
