We're in!

Oy, but where IS everything. Even more than the stupid packing, I hate the subsequent constant search for the basic necessities of life. Okay, found the cast iron skillets. Found the roasting pans. Found the good knives. We can eat off the bare table with our fingers, no? And clothes might be kind of nice one of these days too....

It rained a lot on the day of the move. So we have lots of nice mud in the house. Don't know where the vacuum is though. That's odd, really, since it's not something that fits into a nice generic box. Maybe it's still at the old house. That's where I suspect the good olive oil is too. Luckily we still have a couple of weeks to go on the lease there. We'll be able to retrieve the various things still there. Like the chickens.

The landlords seem to have missed a bet in cleaning here. Apparently the place was overrun with mice before it went vacant. There seems to be some mouse spoor in the ducts somewhere. We shall be getting that corrected post haste.

Overall though, things are good. Back online, as you see. The cat has not been eaten by any of the wildlife yet. Long may that continue. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.


  1. Clothes are over-rated. You'll be fine. Happy Easter!

  2. In this weather, clothes are not over-rated. Brrr! At least we aren't high enough to have gotten snow, as some of our friends did.
