"Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore!"

A neighborhood private school is buying several blocks of houses in order to expand their campus. Many, many decades ago (a hundred years?) they originally owned the land but sold the property, which then turned into blocks of small bungalow-type homes. Because of limited space and increasing enrollment with a corresponding need to expand in the current educational climate, almost all of these houses have now been purchased by the school. The photo shows the tail end of the demolition of one house. The steps lead to blank space on the vacated land.

By the time you read this, my DH and I will have vacated our home (temporarily) to take a much-needed vacation in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It's convenient to have a son who will live in our house and take care of our dog and birds while we're gone. I'll post from SF during our two weeks respite! It is SO GREAT to feel healthier again!! And, I hope it stays that way!!


  1. Enjoy Santa Fe, both of you!

  2. It's always sad when a house is demolished. There's the energy and life that could place in the house - the memories. Still, education is a good thing...

    so glad to hear you are feeling better, and hey, going to Sante Fe. A place I'd love to visit. Have a great time, Kate.

  3. Say "Hello" to Alice for me! ;-) And I'm sure you'll be fine after your sunny vacation.

  4. Hopefully the school will flourish. Glad your feeling better too. Enjoy santa Fe!

  5. Kate -- I'm catching up on your blog. It's too bad they couldn't move those houses or at least salvage something. I'm so glad you are feeling healthier and enjoying a vacation in NM with your DH. Blessings for continued strength and health!
