Heading down the final hill on the roller coaster and the loading bay is in sight!

Hello travel fans!
Yes, the final week has arrived and the house is sight to behold. Boxes everywhere, large black trash bags full of donations in the launching station at the front door as the car is packed to the gills with things to go to ARC.
Here is picture of what the living room looked like the night I finalized my itinerary on paper.
The tenant/cat sitter is currently still searching for this wonderful opportunity for cat companionship and retreat space. If you have any candidates, please feel free to contact Karen Stickland at 303/716-0146 (the cat's personal friend, secretary and interview agent) or my rental agent Tamara Vander Vliet at 303/832-8312. Both of these ladies know the details of the space and the arrangments and can answer any questions.
I am getting very excited as I am talking to people and can't believe the last 5 weeks have just flown past.
People keep asking if I am traveling by myself and now the answer is NO! Don't get too excited, it is not a human.
Quen (pronounced Kwin), short for Quentin Everest Deverill, will be accompanying me around the world. He is currently packing in the kitchen (see photo) or he would send his own personal message. We have already been planning some of his photos and he is very excited about Peru, NZ and Australia and the possibility of seeing some cousins, etc.
Quen's outlook on life is " Quite Easily Done" and that will be the watch word for the year.
Quen and I would like to say special thank you's to everyone who has helped in the last few weeks to get us out the door, Karen Stickland, Tamara Vander Vliet, Brett at Companion Pet Service, Bill, Sherry and Ryan Scebbi, Ray and Angela Berry, Peter Hughes and Shane Delavan, Diane Ahonen (not a complete list).
Also special thank you's to everyone who contributed little things to take with me such as the fabulous custom made computer bag from MKICOUNTRY.com from Carole Wood, my new boots and socks c/o Meredith, sheets and bug spray c/o Sharon (I am walking in love), good smellies and lovely dangles from Annemarie, Susy and Bonnie Hickey (12 special items muchly appreciated), packable photo album from Paulette, my carry on luggage and Master Quen from Miss Lana, scarf from Mary, and the lovely bracelet from Janis.
I have also been incredibly well fed both bodily and spiritually these last few weeks with dinners, lunches, cups of coffee, send off parties and tons of hugs and kisses. Robbie and David, the champagne was FABU!
I am so blessed with my friends. Thank you.
We are sigining off because Quen is insisting that we turn our attention to the downstairs and start moving all the boxes up the the top for storage.
Peter and I at the party.
