Yes, folks, barring complications–which are always a possibility–my house in St. Louis will soon belong to someone else. I accepted the second offer within a few days of putting the house on the market. Three years of clutter-clearing, painting and other touch-ups paid off with a fast sale, so the effort was worthwhile. The closing is scheduled for late April (knock wood).
I’m on the East Coast, where the weather is snowy, sleety and blustery. Nonetheless, I hung a small bird feeder outside the sun room window yesterday and spent this morning watching small gray-blue birds–probably juncos–and the occasional cardinal fluttering in for a bite to eat. Not to mention a squirrel that just couldn’t quite figure out how to get to the feeder. But, when I checked again around 5 p.m., the squirrel was hanging upside down by what appeared to be one back leg and snarfing down bird food. Who says squirrels aren’t smart?
