Road Trip!

January 12th, 2019 Sears Homes 6 comments

I’m thinking about hitting the road, and taking a long trip.

In the last few weeks, I’ve met so many wonderful people (all of whom are history lovers) and each and every one of those people have brought me such a blessing. Each encounter has lifted me up a bit, and helped speed my progress.

These days, I crave beauty and light.

Maybe I need to go looking for beauty and light, and see what I find. It might be great fun to go meet new people and see new sights and look at old kit homes, and just see what happens along the way.

Someone even mentioned, it might make for an interesting series of blogs: Seeking Sears Homes and Finding Peace.

I’ll be leaving my home in Suffolk, Virginia in a few weeks and heading south and then west. If you’ve got a beautiful old soul, a passion for history, a heart full of love for the weary wanderer, and an appreciation for us creative types and you’d like to meet The Author Formerly Known As Rose, please leave a comment below.



Boo asks, will you come to my party? Maybe the question is, Can I come to YOUR party?


Perhaps its time to take my love of houses on the road.

My father

My father thought he was posing me for a picture, but I was actually assessing the thermal efficiency of these original wood windows. If only I'd been able to talk, I could have given them an ear full.


These days, I crave beauty and light. Intensely.

Happy New Years’ Day!

It’s a holiday for everyone, even “Boo” (the cutest dog in the world). Boo, a Christmas present from my eldest daughter, is quite the companion. Today, I found him sitting quietly in a back room, reading one of my favorite books!

Mr. Ringer, Boo and I wish you all a Happy New Year!


Boo pauses from his reading to say, "Happy New Year!"
