Much has happened in my life since the passing of my mother approximately one year ago. My how recent her passing seems! After she passed at the age of 101 and 7 months, I remained in Coos Bay, Oregon for six months and, with the help of a handyman, I upgraded my Oregon home to the level that I thought would sell it when I put it on the real estate market. I either figured that “one” correctly, or I was extremely lucky. For whatever reasons, my house was in escrow three days after listing it. I had been planning a visit to my daughter’s as soon as I felt it would be practical to make the trip so off I went to Idaho just days after listing my property. One of my daughter’s friends, a realtor in North Idaho, had been telling my daughter and son-in-law that she had the perfect house for me. To make a long story short, I have been the owner of that house since October 3, 2011, and I absolutely love living in North Idaho! I’ve been seeing my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter, and grandson and his wife most every week. My “new” home is less than two miles from my daughter’s home which makes me feel very comfortable about moving here as I know I have strong family support “just a holler away.” As those of you who know me are aware, family is the most important thing in my life so…
I have some logistics to figure out regarding my business as the majority of my inventory is at my California home. That is why I am only able to offer unmounted Brownies at the present time. I do plan to eventually move my inventory to Idaho, soon I hope, but I don’t know just when or how. I will notify those on my mailing list when I have the rest of my inventory here in Idaho. To be placed on my mailing list, go to the newsletter link on my site.
