It's done.

On Thursday we signed the papers that sold our house to another young couple. We drove out to get some final stuff done.

Dug up rhubarb to transplant.

Took pictures of some of the more interesting parts of our property.

Collected owl pellets.


And it's done. We had two competing offers within two weeks of putting our house on the market and a motivated buyer who wanted a fast move-in date and was willing to pay list price. We felt very lucky to have it move that fast in today's market.

Congratulations, Sarah! You are one of the fortunate few currently to actually have your house move. And with a motivated buyer will to pay list, no less! Wow!!
What is that brown building behind the fence - is there a story to that? It's too wide to have been an outhouse, right?
Your rhubarb is still looking very fresh and green...mine was done a while ago.

I know! We were so lucky. My husband said "Imagine how much we'd have gotten for it if we'd been paying tithing!" (10% of your income to the LDS church - most financial windfalls that Mormons get are attributed to tithing.) I reminded him that at 10% of our paycheck, the extra still wouldn't have covered the amount we'd paid in tithing, so there. lol

That rhubarb looks better in the picture than it does in real life. It's done, also. Just putting in the time until next season now. I hope my transplanted rhubarb takes. It's an old variety that has really good flavor.

Wow! You were lucky. It took us over 6 months to sell our house last year. And we didn't get what we were asking.
