30 days to go...

It's hard to believe that we'll be living in a house in only a month. We haven't been in the condo very long, but we've gotten to know the neighbours a bit, just enough to be a little sad to leave them. However, I'm not unaccustomed to moving: this house will be my 14th home. I've gotten used to the security of being on the third floor of an apartment building. I'll really miss the view we have from here when we go. It's such an open vista & really beautiful at the moment, with a dusting of snow on the North Shore peaks.

I have been thinking about some of the surprises that we'll find once we've moved into the house. We've never seen it on a clear day, so we only have the word of the listing realtor that it has a mountain view. I thought of another surprise this morning: there's a rhododendron in the front yard, but we have no idea what colour the blooms will be. Hopefully our home inspector has forewarned us of all the other issues with the house, so there won't be any nasty surprises to discover. He was very thorough, but we're keeping our fingers crossed.
