I have been in Colchester for the past week busy with Mom, my family and my friends. I was able to go out birding with Dawn Fine as well as on my own. While I was down there I knew the possibility existed that we might be moving back to Tucson and sure enough, while I was there Gus called to tell me that he had been offered a job back where he worked before.
What did you say?
Yes, that’s right, we are moving back to Tucson. When we moved here two years ago we had always hoped we would be moving back in a year. In fact, that was almost the plan. But, when that didn’t work out Gus kept looking for jobs everywhere, even Australia! Finally the opportunity presented itself and he took it! Many of you wonder if we will be moving back to Sycamore Canyon and our old house. The answer is “No.” That house belongs to someone else now. So, in many ways, moving back to Tucson will be a fresh start for us. However, I am so glad we have lived here in Massachusetts for the past two years. No only did I get to go birding in so many new and wonderful places but, I was also here when my Mom and my family really needed me as Mom went through breast cancer surgery and chemo therapy. Of course, it will be hard to leave her and the rest of my family, but I do have a son and a grandson who still live there and my only daughter lives near Denver. Gus has decided that he wants to retire there in the Tucson area, so perhaps this will finally be the last move for us. The trouble is, we always like a new adventure!
Here are just a few of the things or places I look forward to seeing again:
I will be posting photos from my visit with Dawn Fine soon. She already has her photos up at Dawn’s Bloggy Blog if you want to check them out!
