I’m so proud of the “lamp” I made for our entryway. I love the combination of glass and twinkle lights. It has a remote so I can turn it on and off from the top of the stairs.✨ 🤩✨

Still able to go for a swim. Air is chilly. Yet, pool water is at a comfortable temperature. I adore the way the water feels against my skin. 💙💦 We haven’t used the fire pit yet. Looks pretty!

Clouds swimming through the sky, and Lillian on our after dinner walk on Tuesday.

I tried to capture the amazing view from the swimming pool. I am so deeply grateful that I get to experience this, gratitude so immense it swallows me whole. Had a lovely swim this morning. My Pisces soul is in water heaven.

Thank you to my mom, one half of The Romano Duo, for making these fun pumpkins for us. Made with twigs and sticks I collected for her on walks.

Air quality finally hit moderate levels, I hit the pool. That felt so good. Nearly fresh air + cool, refreshing water = good sensations. 💦💦💦 … If it holds, there will be walking later this afternoon.

Step 2 of Operation Colorado Springs or bust! Haircut for Lillian today, registered Thomas for siblings night out and the zoo outing, searching for a hotel room or Airbnb near Sandy, Utah or Spanish Fork, Utah (making my head spin), one grocery store run, and Lillian asking 55 times if I’ve started packing …. Onward!! Thank you Kathy for cutting Lillian’s hair! She loves it!!
Tomorrow is more packing, another grocery store run, and nailing down the details of the route I’m driving. Just reserved a room for us near Provo. A little less than halfway to Colorado Springs. Thank you to everyone who has supported the efforts and to those who are sharing. Deeply appreciated!
Thank you to everyone who has donated and shared! We have surpassed the goal set and can now comfortably enjoy the conference!! When we return to Reno, we’ll begin packing to move into a new and more affordable place. I’ve increased the goal amount for those who wish to continue supporting us. Any further donations will used to pay for the deposit in our new place, movers, and moving truck. I have been waiting for construction to finish on this new place for around 2 years now. It keeps getting bumped due to delays, but, I think it’s finally nearing completion and we are set to move in September 9th. It is a unique/hybrid high end apartment community with 20 percent of the units set aside for working income families. Meaning the rent will be much more affordable (about half of what it is now). Plus!! We get to move from a one bedroom, one bath into a two bedroom, two bath. This will be such a relief for all of us!

Halfway done with packing. Lovey, our sweet Guinea pig, has been checked into Hotel Perez. Library visit to return books and to check out goodies for the trip. One last grocery store run. Full tank of gas. One very short night swim for Lillian. Painting of the Lillian toenails compete. Hopefully, I’ll get to bed soon! It begins early tomorrow morning!
