At various points in our lives, or on a quest, and for reasons that often remain obscure, we are driven to make decisions which prove with hindsight to be loaded with meaning.

This week’s The Daily Post @ WordPress.com photo challenge is A Day in My Life. I was going to participate by photographing my day and then realized all I had to do was take five minutes to walk around the house and snap a few photos because A Day in My Life looks a lot like this:
You get the idea. But for those who like this sort of thing, I’ll continue showing you the chaos that is currently my home.
When I began my Great Spring Cleaning Project back in January, I had no idea we would be moving. I was sorting through closets and cabinets, drawers and shelves, with no clue that soon all of those closets and cabinets and drawers and shelves would be exploding all over my house.
See what I mean?
Thank goodness I got rid of so much extra baggage before we started packing!
We will have about half the space in what we hope will be our new home as we have now. The mess you see in these photos is still being pared down, and will probably be pared down even more once we get another good look at the house we’re trying to buy. We saw it once. For about an hour. And made an offer on it a few days later. We’re crazy that way.
Let’s leave the mess, and head outside to see what spring is up to.
It occurs to me that I was supposed to break the big news about the move either today or tomorrow. I jumped the gun a bit by announcing it yesterday. For those who missed it, M and I are leaving the Bogs and moving to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The Eastern Shore is a pretty good size, divided into different regions. M and I will be living in Somerset County, not far from the crab capital of the world (and about 37 minutes from Chincoteague Island). I guess I better learn to like crab, eh?
Actually, I do like crab. Sort of. Sometimes. It has to be fresh. I don’t think that will be a problem.
I’d better move back indoors and get back to the sorting and packing. I don’t expect things to be neat and tidy for a while, but perhaps I can get a little better organized so I can try to clean up the place a bit.
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to stay outside and enjoy the day. It’s been sunny and in the 50’s. A very good day for a hike around the pond and into the woods. I had to make it a quick walk, but you’re welcome to take your time and linger by the pond where the light and reflections have been wonderful lately.
Have a delightful day, evening, night… whenever and wherever you are on the spectrum of time. 🙂
Coincidences link us to the unknown and weave us into it.
