We've had no action on the house since we lowered the price a week ago. I'm starting to wonder if it was wise to put our house up for sale during the summer. Maybe we should have waited to sell it after we move into Beacon Hill in December. At that time the house would have been emptied of all our stuff and we could have all the wallpaper removed and the old carpet taken up. Then the original oak floors would be revealed and the walls would be ready for the buyers to paint.
Today, however, is another beautiful summer day. The peaches that we picked yesterday are ripening on the kitchen counter and the cicadas are buzzing. It's time to get outside.
