"You aren't wealthy until you have something money can't buy"
-Garth Brooks


It's been a busy week getting my sister-in-law, Connie, settled into her independent living apartment in Wenatchee.  The move from Arizona has been a stressful and traumatic time for her.  This morning she called to tell me she feels like the most blessed person in the world.  It was so heartwarming for me. I'm so glad she is getting settled in, making friends, and feeling good about her relocation. 

Here are links to the posts I was able to get published last week:

Art Reveals Reality
Art is not what you see but what you make others see." 

Weekly Round-up: March 24 - 30th, 2019 
"Strive for progress, not perfection."

Terrific Tuesday: SeniorWomenGolfers.com 
"Golf isn't a sport. It's a lifestyle." 

WordWednesday: Reverse Mortgage 
"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

Throwback Thursday: To Buy Or Not To Buy 
Q: When are you going to stop sitting on that fence?
A: I don't know yet. 

Second Chance Saturday: Week 111
"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."

Have a great week everyone!

I wish I could talk my sister into moving closer to me but the only thing she wants to hear is whether she can live with me, and that's just not gonna happen. Same neighborhood is OK but not same house. Need some sanity.

Morning Carol.

As usual didn't miss any.  Love your new photo, with a 60% chance of rain and a high of 57º for Sunday, the game will be postponed another week

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson 
Yes, she's getting settled nicely.  We went shopping yesterday for a new loveseat and found a good buy on clearance. It will be delivered today.  She's excited about that.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Realtor Top 1% 
Yes, Connie hinted at that too but that wasn't going to happen.  She'd spend several months with me in the summer and that wasn't something I wanted to make permanent.  Other than the expense, the independent living facility is a way better option for both of us!

You are one busy lady of late. I'm so happy Connie realizes how lucky she is to have a safe place to thrive as she gets older. What a nice gift to have you nearby to keep her social.
