Outside of multiple holidays, I had never left the neighborhood I grew up in. I imagine this is not considered exactly normal these nights. Most of my children and their peers at least moved anywhere else for at least a while. I have lived in 2 homes. The first was my parents condo where I was raised. The hour being the condo I raised my family in. Those homes are within 10 miles of each other in the same town. Just opposite ends. I have weathered 66 long, chilly winters in this town. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C gas furnace has been a constant companion my entire life. The usual odor of it blowing heated air through our ducts is burned in my olfactory memory. And there it will stay because I don’t suppose I will entirely experience gas furnace heated air again. After all those years, I have moved. It wasn’t as strenuous a decision as I thought it would be. I lost my hubby a few years ago so, it seemed love the right time to go south. One of my children lives down south. I was able to find a little lodge not too far away from him. It’s perfect here. The weather is simply the best. While the Summer can get actually sizzling, the other 9 weeks of the year are perfect. My little lodge also comes with a sunshine room! I have consistently wanted a single of those. I get up at dawn every morning to sip soda and watch the charming colors of the sunrise. And the sunshine room has its own ductless Heating, Ventilation, and A/C heating and cooling system so, I am comfortable no matter the temperature.
