Living Minimally


It's the last flight of our snowbird adventure.
A cash offer on our Florida house makes it possible for us to simplify our lives and go home to just one familiar nest, one property tax, house insurance, and set of utility bills.
 
 
 
We're cutting our possessions in half by selling the house furnished and emptying
 cupboards, drawers, and closets of our personal possessions.

I'm reveling in sunshine on clear surfaces,
 the empty closets painted a delicious pistachio green,
and driving un-needed items to Salvation Army,
 ReStore (retail store for Habitat for Humanity) and Goodwill.

Without dishes, pots and pans in the kitchen,
dining comes in convenience forms.
Without clothing in the closet,
I get dressed out of a suitcase.

Inspection happens next week.
Closing on March 7.

It will be sad to leave this all behind but the time has come.
