I just noticed my last entry has disappeared from the main page, so I felt compelled to post a short notice letting people know that I haven't disappeared in the middle of the move and will be back on line shortly, at least as soon as I'm able to find the poetry books still stacked in boxes in the garage. We're having a little trouble downsizing from 2,200 square feet to 1,600 square feet and moving from a rather large double garage to a rather small double garage. Boxes crowd otherwise empty rooms, and modular furniture lays around like a discarded erector set, waiting to be reshaped to fit strange new shapes and locations. Though we don't have a phone yet, except for our much-used cell phones, the cable modem was installed late Monday and the computer room is nearly usable, though it desperately needs to be picked up and odds and ends put away. I spent most of yesterday at Sears ordering a storage shed to hold garden tools and buying a portable cart to house at least some of my woodwooking tools. Somehow it doesn't feel quite right spending the day reading poetry and writing blog entries until the house is settled in and I can find all the utensils needed to cook a meal. Eating out's fine, but I think I still prefer home-cooked meals.
