A lot has happened ...

  • Pages Written Today: Netted about 6, but I think I deleted about 5.
  • Where did I walk/ride? To Fresh 'n' Easy--about a mile either way.
I've been without phone or Internet for two weeks.  That's my excuse for why I haven't blogged, and I'm sticking to it.

I've moved into my new (old) house (see below.)  It's primitive right now.  Holes in the walls, not much kitchen, floors half-refinished.  But we now have a brand-new fridge and stove, a new washer and dryer, and plumbing that works.  (You are lucky I was unable to blog the day we had the massive sewer back-up.  I probably would have gone into the gory details, but by now, I've blocked them from my mind.)  I have a hot shower every morning, coffee, a computer, and a comfy bed to sleep in at night.  We aren't doing much fancy cooking, but we have peanut butter and tuna and cheese and crackers, Clementines and cold cereal.

I'm quickly discovering you don't need much else to be pretty comfortable.

I was concerned about the neighborhood, that it might be too noisy, since we are on a major thoroughfare and we have an apartment building on one side and a preschool on the other.  But the apartment dwellers are extremely quiet (except for the one who has about a hundred parakeets living on her balcony, but even that is a tolerable noise).  The kiddos at the school only come out for two or three playtimes per day, and they seem well-mannered.  At any rate, the sound of children playing is kind of nice.

Traffic noise is a constant, but by the second day here, I'd tuned it out.

I've put bird feeders out, but so far, no takers.  (Every day, I put out a slice of Clementine, and every day it disappears, but I never see who takes it.  It might be the tame squirrel.)  We do have a mockingbird that sings at the top of a tree right outside our office.  I put Da Vinci's cage in the window so he can see and hear it.  We are hoping he will attract a nice lady mockingbird and they'll build a nest in that tree.  I also often see hummingbirds at that tree, and yellow-rumped warblers.

It's been a challenging move, but I don't regret it for a moment.  When I hear that it is 15 degrees in Dallas, I know I made the right choice.  (It's in the '70s here most afternoons this time of year.)  I am getting into my writing again.  Life is good.

Ask me again tomorrow, though, and I might change my mind.
