Packing up Quinta de la Luz ...

Hello my Lovelies.  Hope you are making yourselves a wonderful day.

One moment at a time.  I keep reminding myself, however for whatever reason I am truly stressed.  Packing began today, along with some unexpected complications with the closing.  Closing now will probably be about three days late.

Had no choice but to go out this morning and when I got home, the bodegas were packed and most of the main floor.  A few complications there as well -- however I simply can't concern myself with them.  What is is, and that's the end of it.

So my beautiful little house is beginning to look like this:

To decompress, Pat and I went out for dinner.  I adore this photo.  Suddenly she had no idea why she ordered a beer and a milk shake at the same time.  It hit her very funny.

Tomorrow morning, I will be moving to the house across the street, then returning home to supervise the packing of the upstairs.  Off to have a shower and allow the hot water to totally relax me.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the moment.  Love your comments .. thank you so much.

“If there's happiness tucked away in my tragedies, I'll find it no matter what. If the blind can find joy in music, and the deaf can discover it with colors, I will do my best to always find the sun in the darkness because my life isn't one sad ending - it's a series of endless happy beginnings.”

  1. Sorry you have hit a stressful time, but it will pass, remember what Lady Julian said, 'All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well'. Hope the rest goes without hitches! Loved the idea of ordering Milkshake and beer at the same time, what a combination. Glad you had an evening out and a good laugh! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Remember that this will all be a memory and in the past soon Donna. Not easy at the moment to think that way but happiness will soon return I'm sure. Hope you have a better day today

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. I hope the rest is done quickly and without troubles!
    Enjoy your weekend Donna - relax!

  4. Well it's a beer and a milkshake kind of task ahead of you. Maybe you should order the same! Things will proceed, and the work will get done, and all will continue to unfold. All the best.

  5. Hi Donna. Moving is stressful and one of the hardest jobs there is. Sorry to hear the closing was postponed adding more stress. Relax and breathe deeply. I was pleased you could laugh at Pat. Laughing makes everything better. Hope you get to enjoy the weekend with a couple of warm days.


  6. My thoughts and prayers are with you during these stressful days....this too will pass. So glad you have help with all that needs to be done. Wishing you good days ahead my friend.
