Writing from Iceland

What cold weather!

We woke up this morning to see snow outside–it is March right, and this is the Pacific Northwest, right? It’s not supposed to be SNOWING. Anyway, today the northeaster wind is whistling around the house giving Deeder, Carly and I the opportunity to discover which windows in NewHouse are drafty.

It’s great to have a house to live in and a thermostat to control (in VT our land lady had that on her half of the building so we were often left feeling winter indoors). It’s also great to have a phone, and the Internet. Unfortunately wireless isn’t working for my laptop so I am downstairs in the basement to write, layered up in a sweatshirt and coat with my warm clogs on. Ah the coldness of basements.

Anyway, we are enjoying our new place–we did get a refridgerator before moving in (thankfully) and shortly after a washer and dryer, because, as Darren says, a house isn’t a home until you can do your own clothing.

I’ve taken tons of pictures, and do have a lot of blog posts in my mind…
Missing my USB plug in cord though, so that’s on the list of Things Yet to Be Found.

I was happy to find a finger nail trimmer, and am still hunting for other life necessities. I frequently find myself saying, “Well it’s got to be here somewhere.”

Over this time of silence on my part I’ve been positive that at least half of you would drop away and give up on me. Thanks for checking in–I so appreciate that. :)

And of course, wonderful GrammaMomma for writing in to say that I am not dead. She is also to be thanked for babysitting my babies on Saturday so that I could hang out in Seattle with my brother! That was way cool–entirely a blog post of it’s own.

    Hi, Sweetie. You’re welcome for the babysitting. I hope you will blog about what all you did on your day (and evening) away.

    Accuweather says it’s supposed to stay quite cold a couple more days. Brrr!!!

    Glad you are starting to settle in. We have lived in our house for 5 months now and I am still not completely unpacked. Sigh.

    Good luck finding the USB cord!
