We've been in our new home for over three months, and it feels like notes about it deserve their own 'blog -- so here it is! General home commentary and weather 'reports' will be featured; for camera commentary visit granitix.blogspot.com, while more ethereal musings can be seen at lifenotes-jr.blogspot.com -- that's all the blogsites I have, for now!
Moving to a new place has its many stresses, and some do not end when the moving truck/container leaves. We bought this home in midsummer when trees were green and the sun shone on the deck every morning. Now it's deep autumn, and the leaves are mostly in a large pile on the driveway (the last bunch are now cluttering the yard for a final farewell), and the deck receives a bit of sunshine if you are willing to stand up! No stress at this point, just anticipation - but if snow piles deep or roads fall into creeks? Those weren't issues in the Big City, but here it needs to be considered!
Many items are still seeking a location here, but the garage(s) are less full and a bit more organized. this is a damp location so mildew is a concern, so clothes and paperwork have priority admission into the home, The wood stove has been pretty busy in November, I can imagine that by February the donated woodpile that came with the home will be looking mighty thin. We have a fine electric furnace insead of gas, so winter bills will be fewer but it will look larger to have light and heat on the same page.
Well that's enough for the commencement post. We have many dreams of improvements here, but other expenses must be brought into line first. Many of those dreams are outdoor ones - so for now it's spectator time!
