So Hemlock House is now owned by some new residents. These folks wanted it less than a month after they made the offer, shortly after labour day weekend (today!). Graham was racing in Quebec, so I went back to empty it out and get it ready for the next folks.
I was really REALLY lucky to have a lot of help and support. Thanks so much to Bernie and Tom, Mom and especially Dad who made 2 trips into the city, Jordan (aho also made two trips to clear out furniture!), Raynn-Beau and Adam who took the bulk of the heavy kitchen items. Biggest thanks to David, who not only packed and cleared out, but also drove the UHAUL moving van Â full of furniture to Victoria for Elizabeth. It actually turned into a pretty fun weekend, all things considered!
Farewell Hemlock House! It was a good little apartment and we had a lot of good times and fun parties there. We’ll be back for X-mas, and have already found airbnb new hemlock house across the street. It even has a pine outside the window (maybe a certainÂ raccoon lives there now?)
Word of the Day
Saudade is a Brazilian Portuguese word for a sad but sweet nostalgia. Â Thievery corporation has a bossa nova song to articulate the feeling. So apt(artment)!
