How goes it? What is new?
I am sitting looking at tall pine trees and watching the snow gently fall and melt as it hits the grass outside . I can't believe we are here in Oregon.
It all feels very surreal. We had movers come and take all of our stuff from LA and plop it down here in Portland. Just before leaving LA, my dear brother in Maine loaded up a uHaul with all of my stuff that I have been storing at his house for the past ten years, and brought it to LA. The movers moved ALL of our stuff, including our cars. We flew up to meet the truck and now I am knee deep in boxes. It hasn't really sunk in yet for me. I think, not driving up here, is adding to this unreal feeling I seem to have.
Dread has been knee deep at his job since our arrival. The poor man has had no time to do any of the things on his long long list. He did manage to get us some cord wood, and as the temperature drops, I better get a fire going. We have a wonderful wood stove and it sure feels good to be manning the home fires.
I am so happy to be surrounded by trees. I am not, and will never be a city mouse. I am in love with our new home . The people up here are as nice as can be, it is so refreshing after LA. I must also mention, the food here is to die for.
We are still struggling with internet connections. We don't have wifi yet. Comcast is really pissing us off but they seem to have the monopoly on internet service.
