Settling in

We can see parts of the floor! We have internet again! We have a functional kitchen! And..... (drum roll please).... I have an almost finished studio.

Do I feel guilty that the room that is most settled is my work space? A little. The DM's studio is still in disarray, but it has come to the forefront of our attention now. Some furnishings are needed before much more progress can be made there, so we'll be focusing on that during our Trip to the Big City tomorrow.

As for the world outside the walls of the new house... (IS there a world outside the walls of this house? We haven't seen it much.) We've been enjoying much-needed and long-overdue rain the last couple of days, hoorah! So far the house seems to be holding back water (a new roof is due some time before the end of the month).

I haven't been able to pay much attention to what our yard list might be looking like... but I am well aware that we are infested with pine siskins and house finches. They never shut up! The last two days we've had a yellow warbler working the trees out front... delightful! And there are a couple of fat squirrels about... we've been giving each other the evil eye through the studio window.

It's back to work for me this morning... a conference call is on the schedule within the hour. I am twitchy to pick up a pencil for something other than list-making or shelf-marking. Soon.... soon....
