Every day I check the mail, expecting nothing more than the usual junk and bills and the odd newsletter for KD. But I always hope there will be something interesting for me. I love getting mail, but I rarely do. Today--surprise!--I got a card from my dear friend ebbyanne. Somehow the timing of her letters is always perfect and give me the encouragement I need. Someday soon I need to brew a cup of the white tea she sent, and sit down to write her a letter. Our written correspondence has become even more sporadic since the advent of Facebook...and Ebby's move across oceans. We had a showing of our house on Tuesday, and we haven't heard yet what the people thought of it. For the other showings we always found out the next day that they thought it was "clean and nice" but they weren't interested, so maybe this delay is a good thing. In the meantime, the duplex we want to buy is still on the market, and I doubt they'll sell any faster than we do if they don't lower the price. The marke is getting dramatically softer around here. One reason I really want this house stuff to be over with is so that I can do house-stuff again and decorate for the holidays! We had our first on-the-ground snowfall on Tuesday, and I am itching for Christmas.
