Up sticks

I lamented at dinner tonight, with friends and family, this upping sticks business has kept me from keeping up with blogs. I should just post the for sale sign, I sighed, and my son in law heartily seconded. Back shortly, I hope, with stories.

  5. I'm sad to think of you leaving the garden and all the work you put into it; then I'm happy that you'll find a lovely new place that is perfect for you and the girls.

  14. Hi. I am glad to see that you posted; was beginning to be concerned. I think this is about your good friend who is moving? You told us awhile back about a dear friend who was finally able to do something she wanted to do---move. You were not happy about it. What with Laura in her new room, I see no way YOU would be going anywhere. I have not heard the term "upping sticks". A novel way to say "moving on up"! I do look forward to your stories. Thanks for the update!

    1. My BFF of nearly forty years is moving to South Carolina. But, my house is for sale and I'm moving, too. I may need to bury St. Joseph in the front yard. Upsidedown, is it?

    2. Yes, and facing the direction you intend to move. It works. Wish I had one to loan you.

    3. I did that too and the house sold, but I didn't know of the direction thing.

  19. well from reading the comment section (often the best part of the blog) I've learned you are moving. I wish you all the best and that everything settles down in the best way for you.

  20. You gave us no warning! But, our time has come as well, since we are also moving, end of July. I feel like part of us is staying here, after 27 years.

    Write when you can. You are a friend.

  22. I thought I had missed a blog post until I saw everyone else is asking the same question. Good luck with it all. I know it can be very stressful.

  23. Had to come back and re-read your post. So sudden? We are moving as well, at the end of July. It's time.

  24. Been thinking of "upping sticks". Never heard it before. I am used to "pulling up stakes". Know you got it correct, just new to me.

  25. You're moving. I go away for a few weeks and when I get back everything has changed. Re-plant those sticks soon and let us know the news.
