SOLD!



 TRIPPIN' THURSDAY

In everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose...in our latest season, with only a vague plan and a touch of creativity, we're off on another adventure. Half of this twosome is retired; my half will probably never know what that means. I promise to share.
Sold the first day

What a whirlwind these last few weeks have been. Bittersweet. With only half of us here, the farm isn't a farm, and selling it just seems right. As for the whirlwind...Frank and I have been trippin’ through fields, painting, cleaning, and completing all the repairs we should’ve tackled
All spruced up
long before now. We met with two realtors and chose Karen Riley, a delightful woman who was born and raised in Prescott, but has lived in Paulden for years.

We must’ve chosen correctly because in the first 48 hours she listed the farm, we had three offers. We weren’t ready for that! Thinking it would take at least a couple of months to sell, we really had no plan on
Lizards are fat this year
where we would move. And we still don’t know. We’ve been too busy to look.

We still need to sell the tractor.

Today we have the home inspection and the well inspection. Next

week will be the termite inspection and the following week the septic gets pumped. July 7th is the expected closing date. Looks like it will be quite a fourth of July for us!

Really big tomato plant the first year
Sharing some pictures from now and then. I’ll have to let you know just where we’ll be trippin’ to next…when we know!
