What an exciting week it has been. The American election process is almost over, and we have a President Elect Biden, and the first WOMAN Vice President Elect, Kamala Harris! I’m proud to be an American, again.

My news pales in comparison. The gypsy’s are on the move once again. After an interesting series of events, we’ve put our house up for sale and are moving to Michigan. I grew up in Wisconsin, so for me this will be like going home. The real estate market is hot here in Arizona and in Michigan. It just made little sense to wait until spring and maybe miss out on the interest rates. We have several friends in Michigan, so it will be fun to know some folks for a change. As usual with us, things move fast. I’ll keep you all in the loop. It will be interesting driving cross-country with kitty-girl, Freyja. ❤

  1. Hi Kat exciting news all round, good luck with the move and I am sure once safely in a cat basket Fraya will be fine.
    Also great news on the election front all you have to do is get Donald out of the White House and then you will all be laughing! I think you might soon have a woman president! 💜

  2. Saturday was an exciting day for all of us, and you have you own excitement going on! Congratulations. That is quite a move–quite a change in climate and scenery you’re going to have!

  3. Very cool, though you did hint at it, so I am not surprised. That is quite the move! What part of Michigan are you moving to? I have been all over the state (well, I was 4 or 5 when I visited UP…) so am familiar with most of it. Hope Freyja isn’t too stressed by the lengthy travel.

    1. It’s near East Lansing. There are lots of small towns. The best part is to be in the same town as our good friend. I’ll find out more today on the house. It’s exhausting and exciting all at the same time. 😍

          1. Cindy’s cat is very wild, so it will calm her down. Ours are not used to traveling. They yowled all the way to and from the vet’s when they got the vaccinations and their chip implants. But they are totally good to go. 🙂

  4. Great news, Colleen! I am happy you are moving away from the constant heat. We moved from FL to GA with our cat and she was fine. We put her in a kitty condo with her toys and blankie. She meowed for a while and then settled down. We also had one of those portable litter boxes on the floor of the car just in case. Take care and don’t let moving be too stressful. ❤️

    1. It’s been so difficult with the heat and expense at trying to keep cool. We were 97 degrees on Friday. This morning it was 42 degrees. You have two temperatures… hotter than Hades, and cold! I prefer my four seasons. It’s actually warmer in Michigan right now than it is here in AZ! LOL! It will be an adventure for sure!

      1. I love 4 seasons and when we got the chance to leave FL, I was thrilled! Where we live, (north GA) there are 4 seasons and the weather is pretty mild. I wouldn’t mind moving further north though.

  5. Best to you on your move. It’s always an adventure -moving. With my family in my area it is unlikely that we will be moving for quite a while. Our last move brought us here and I think this is it, until our children select our nursing home! I get the love of four seasons!

    Wishing you a quick sale and a safe move! Cheers, Jules

  7. Exciting, indeed! I’m so happy with the election results. I could have done cartwheels when I found out that the Biden/Harris team had won. You’re going from hot to cold, Sis! It’s always exciting to move, especially to another state. There can also be some stress involved, so I hope the move goes smoothly and as stress free as possible. I wish you all the best! ❤ xo

  8. Hi Colleen, Congratulations and sorrow! I’m so sad you are leaving AZ just when I’m coming there. It seems like your move is going even faster than ours, and it speeds along. I wish you the best. I did not get my Tanka Tuesday done until last night, so I posted this morning. https://tchistorygal.net/2020/11/09/97077/. You will love it. It’s all about moving. 🙂


  9. You’re on the move again!?! Young lady, you’ve got a gypsy in your soul, lol! How exciting, love it!! Sounds like my childhood, we were always on the move. Back to changing seasons. As far as I’m concerned hot spots are for visiting. I can’t take the constant heat. Another great adventure, coming up😊😊😊♥️♥️♥️
