Back to Normal?

September 24th, 2012

Yesterday we took our neighbor to the airport in the early afternoon and started unpacking when we got home. So far, about 10 boxes have been emptied! It will take a long time since a thorough cleaning must precede the emptying of boxes.

Thankfully, our new neighbor brought us all kinds of delicious food. We’ve been feasting on her good cooking for the past couple days, which has allowed us to not worry about unpacking all the kitchen items.

It’s a daunting task to be sure, not just the unpacking, but trying to figure out where to put everything. How our lives will fit into this new space. No doubt, things will be moved several times until they settle into their spots.

The office is the first space that is being put in order. My desk and computer were set up last night so I could download these photos and write this post. Being without my main computer and my photos has been a bit of a challenge. We also need to get back to work.

How long would you last without your computer?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
