Home is always shifting

My parents have made it official — the family home in Saskatchewan is up for sale.  I’m sad and happy at the same time.  I’m sad that this means a chapter of my life is over — I never will be able to return to the home I left.  But I’m happy for my parents as well, now both retired and ready to move to warmer climates closer to their grandchild.

Curious where I grew up?  Here is the listing complete with many interior and exterior photos.  Taken in winter, there is a stillness there that remains part of what I recall even now.  In summer, the flower beds bloom and the back garden and lawn grow a beautiful green.  See for yourself right here.
