Time and Timing

We’re off — we’re out — we’re on our way!

In my entire life, I have never seen such a perfect set of examples of manifestation at completely the last minute — but the way things unfolded during our last week at our former home in country Victoria in Australia was fairly magical. There are far too many episodes to cite, but a handful include…

1. Every single item of furniture that we had for sale actually sold. (hooray!)
2. Almost every small item sold at the garage sale and the rest went out the door to the local junk shop fellow.
3. Some dear friends in the village allowed us to store a set of chairs and tables until January at their place when the frazzled buyer of those items had a flakey courier company who wanted to tack on a $900 ‘Christmas surcharge’ to do what they had already been contracted to do.
4. Car #1 and tractor sold easily.
5. Car #2 did not sell, but we learned from people that we trust that a very reputable mechanic in the village could take care of getting the roadworthy certificate for us, would sell it for us, and would just deposit the funds electronically into our account. And apparently he has done this for a number of people who were moving overseas in the last few years. Whew!!!

The ‘odd and awful’ aspects of our TIMING with a capital T were that (1) we completely ran out of time and didn’t get to say a proper goodbye to quite a few people, (2) we just about killed ourselves with the packing, moving, cleaning, and (3) I ended up in the hospital with pneumonia.

I am very blessed right NOW though in spite of the amount of medication I’m taking. We are staying with friends in Sydney, the sun is shining brightly, the sea outside the window is sparkling, and I can just relax and get healthy again before we fly to Amsterdam in 2 weeks.

I’ll discuss a few of our plans and where we will be country-wise in the next post.

Life feels better and better. Big old world — here we come!
