Well we just moved into the small city of Grants Pass,Oregon from way out in the country not to far from here!I am much more of a country person than a city person but Hubby's health comes first and that is why we moved into town.The hospital is only five min.away and although he seems fairly healthy right now he is 80yrs.old and his health could change anytime.He wants to be prepared.Our rental is a nice one only 8yrs.old and we have a nice heat pump for heating and cooling.It works great!!I am now 70yrs.old but still consider myself a potter even though all the tools of my trade are in storage or will be soon for about a year.Our house has a very large garage but now it is almost full of other stuff that we brought from the country.Doubt the owner will let me upgrade the electrical system for my kiln so may have to move one more time next year.I also don't have a working studio anymore so that slows down my claywork considerably.I am still in two gallerys but nothing is selling right now so Hubby would love to see me sell my pottery equiptment but to replace it would cost a lot of money and I just am not ready to sell my studio equiptment yet!!
Right now we are still moving in and trying to make this house a home,bought a new large very pretty rolled carpet for our living room and that helps considerably.The house has laminated wood floors through out as it was built for a rental but apparently the last people who lived here for four years really did a number on it the last year they were here and the owners had to repaint a lot of the rooms and do some damage control.I wondered why the owner asked ME if I had children and I told her NO and she was relieved because the last tenents had a whole bunch of kids living here and they were really loud.
Friday nights here are somewhat noisy but we expected that but most of the time it is pretty quiet.Not a bad neighborhood for a couple of old folks who just aren't ready for a senior retirement home yet.There are a lot of children on one side of our house that scream and carry on a lot during the eve.hours but the neighbor on the other side said to me "it is summertime and they will quiet down in the fall"but meanwhile I have to put up with a lot of noise from them,guess it could be worse so I try to grin and bear it.Hubby can sleep right through the noise,he loves kids and thinks they are good neighbors.We hope to go to Jamiaca soon but need to finish getting moved.Well hope all of you are having a fine Sunday,Best to you, CLinOregon
