After spending the past couple of weeks exploring caretaking opportunities all over the States, Paul and I have accepted a position in Cape Cod, MA. This is a long term house and pet sit (1-2 years). We are packing up the 4Runner and heading out on Monday October 5th, at the latest. These last few days in Evergreen will be hectic as we have much to do before we leave!
Paul will most likely be coming back to CO in a few weeks to tie up all loose ends with the house sale. In the meantime, we will be having our final estate sale on Saturday October 3rd (check Craigslist on Thursday or just follow the signs from Little Cub on Saturday). We are getting rid of almost all earthly posessions so there will be all sorts of random stuff.
Thank you to all who came out to the Ice House last night. It was my final bartending shift and the place was packed, thanks to the music of Joe Bye and friends. We sure will miss all of the great live music Evergreen has to offer. There are so many things we will miss about Colorado. I am from the East Coast, so I know what cold winters mean; I know there will be times when we long for Colorado Blue Skies!
For those of you who are wondering what is to become of Mountain Girl Organics…the answer is I don’t know yet. A friend is interested in buying the business, which would keep it all local. Otherwise, I will put production on hold after my Holiday orders are in and revisit MGO once we are settled in. Late winter/Early spring is a good time for this as retail is typically much slower.
As for Paul, he will continue on with his job (he works remotely) while we are in Cape Cod. We are both looking forward to taking care of two retired greyhounds, being closer to my CT friends and family, living on the water, etc. etc. Thanks to technology (when I can figure out how to use it) we can keep in touch with each other so easily these days. We have met some great people out here that we will miss dearly. Lucky for me, I probably won’t have time to think about that too much until we are all nestled in to our new dwelling…
