 Storms moved through the area last evening, drowning plans for outside activity. They also portend increased humidity today and for much of the next week. It is beginning to feel like summer in Maryland. 

Downsizing while also preparing the house for marketing continues unabated. Yesterday the "stager" visited and gave us some tips for improving the pictures that will be taken next week for the listing advertisement. It was very interesting to work with her and understand what prospective buyers are looking for when reviewing pictures before actually visiting a house. Chris did a spectacular job preparing the house and most of the suggestions were tweaks to what she had already accomplished. We both remarked that the house is beginning to resemble our Florida condo in terms of simplicity and lack of clutter.

Downsizing would be easier if we were moving into a new or vacant home, but we are relocating to our fully furnished condo in Florida and so we need almost nothing from our Maryland home which means that we must be ruthless in our efforts. It is hard to be ruthless when dealing with treasures accumulated over a lifetime.

The evening rains caused baseball practice to be canceled last evening. There is a game tonight which hopefully we will be able to play as the Severn Seminoles 14U prepare for the season ending playoffs and need to get one more league game played to qualify.

It certainly feels like summer outside!
