At Last, Home

I finally completed the move I started back in January.  I caught a red-eye flight to the continental U.S. last Thursday (for those keeping track, the state of Oregon, to be specific) and spent the weekend playing with my daughter, relaxing, and catching up on my sleep.

I’m now in my new home and reunited with my family on a full-time basis—yeah!  The new house is fantastic, even if my office has a ways to go (my desk and other odds-n-ends will be delivered Friday).  The weather has turned nice (mostly), and I spent Sunday in the garden planting tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, raspberries, blueberries, peppers, and watermelons, to go along with stuff already there, including kale, lettuce, snow peas, bush beans, and more herbs than I knew existed—mmmmm….  All this is very different from my previous home, where gardening was difficult and limited for a variety of reasons.

I didn’t get much writing done over the weekend, but I’m settling back in and working on a new short story.  I’m also finishing up a story revision that I hope to have finished before the end of the month.  I’m trying to get back into writing routine, and I expect that will take a few days while my life adjusts to all the new things.
