Here is my stack of books awaiting reading this winter. Many I got from library book sales. I imagined myself just tucking in for the winter here beside the gas fire with my mug of hot chocolate and the cats beside me, waiting for next spring when I could look for houses again. I hoped to "give it a rest."
Here is my stack of books recently read. Yikes. However, some changes have happened that I do not like yielding to and which necessitate my finding a house of my own before Christmas. Now, please note I CAN yield to these changes of course, swallow my pride etc. But I am going to give it another try with the house search. I am changing my area of search. I'd like to live in Amherst. There are three colleges there and lots of books stores.
However, Amherst prices are high and the property taxes quite high too. Thus I am looking right now in Northfield. Quite a country feel, lower prices and about half an hour to Amherst. No bookstores, I don't know if there is a yoga class. There is a pizza place. I feel quite sick to my stomach again. Ah well.
