In some respects, it was nice to have lots of time to move out and move in – but since I had so much time, I didn’t rush and it feels like this interim period will never end now. I still have 3 weeks to pay both mortgage (and related expenses) and rent and I still have stuff to get out of the house.
I sold a few items at the start that I knew would sell, but everything since then has been given away. I had 2 charities come and load their trucks up with whatever they wanted. Unfortunately they mostly wanted items in new condition. If it was new condition, I could have sold it. So, they left a lot.
I advertised the rest on Kijiji for free and a lot of it went, but not the big heavy stuff. I have just put another ad on Freeshare in the hopes that it will go. Before much more time, I will be looking for a truck with a couple of able bodied people to haul everything to the dump.
Meanwhile – my Clematis is now flowering.
I decided to explore the area just past where I had walked before – but this time I walked alone the sidewalks to get there. It has been raining and I knew mosquitos would be thick in the bush. So, I walked to the bridge and found a path on the other side of the river that continues. I don’t know how far it continues, since as soon as I entered the bush, the mosquitos found me.
This path is gravel for a very short distance and then turns to dirt. I did get a few pictures though.
I found another trail that I will be walking soon. It runs all the way from St. Anne’s Road to St. Marys Road and is 2.9 km one way – so that would be a nice stroll. It looks like it goes through some parks and is always in a green area so should be very nice.
In 3 more weeks I will only have 1 residence to worry about!
Oh – I have booked for Kruger National Park so I’ll tell you more about that soon. 🙂
