#WeekendCoffeeShare Real Estate Contract

minimalism and joy

If we were having coffee this weekend in Tucson I would invite you to relax with some iced tea and chocolate covered dates stuffed with walnuts. I scored yet another 20 pound box of Medjool dates at my produce pick up this morning.  I have been giving dates away for weeks, and now I have about 30 pounds.  They are perfect for winter, and will last a long time.  I am looking for new date recipes.  Sit down and tell me how your week has been.  I hope all of those who have been hit by the storms are safe and dry.  Our national recovery will take a long time. My heart goes out to those who have been displaced.

The week went quickly for me, with not much writing.  I worked last weekend to make up for the day had to miss for grand jury.  I was excused.  The people who manage the process, from the registration staff, to the bailiff who guides you and tracks you by your badge number, to the judge, are all extremely professional.  The judge was very clear in all his explanations, and the entire mega situation, with people reporting all day long, is handled super efficiently. We all had bar codes to track us, which I suppose enables a smooth and accurate accounting of all that happens.  I was impressed with this little corner of government function.  It works really well for all involved.

I am extremely glad not to have to dedicate 2 days a week to the court until the middle December. This morning I got the good news that I have an offer on the lot I have for sale across the street from my home.  I accepted the offer and now have until October 19th to clear out my possessions from the lot and the barn.  I had begun the job, but now there is a solid deadline to finish organizing and decluttering.  I hoped to sell it before I had to pay taxes on it again, and it looks like I will meet that goal. I can’t wait to be finished downsizing.  It is liberating to jettison unneeded stuff.

I wrote a short piece of fiction this week that was related to getting rid of family heirlooms.  I am sure this came from my effort to relieve myself of the silly burden of files and papers from my dead parents finances, etc.  This is the theme in my life at the moment.  Marie Kondo has worked her magic into my very soul.  I believe that tidiness is true happiness.  I am out to prove it. By 19 October I will be a much lighter being.  I think it will inspire my writing to be free. Stay tuned, and we shall see. This deadline is the best gift for me now.

It’s so freeing to downsize! I’m still working through it. I look at it as making room for what I want..
