WE ARE HERE!  However it has been a few days in limbo – without phone or internet – and only a foam pad on the floor and this and that to make the merest semblance of a home.  An odd feeling.  Neither this nor that.  I believe it will be all right,  but there is much to consider before the moving van arrives, maybe in a week,  and what looks like a long process of settling in and getting it just right.  But that is Robert’s “good thing”.  He is the master of transformation. And speaking of him – he requested a favorite picture – one that makes him very happy to finally be here.

North Dakota Freeway

After a long, straight drive across the plains of North Dakota, we entered Minnesota on Day Six and finally – We saw the house on Mt. Faith for about ten fast and confusing minutes about 10 months ago.   And frankly, we have been asking ourselves things like – “do you remember what room is at the top of the stairs?” and “were there wood floors or carpet?” and “is there a window in the bathroom?” – so one can see that I was justifiably and truly “excited and scared”.

The garden was unbelievably better than I had remembered.

The town is splendid.

The work ahead, I suspect, will be challenging, frustrating, thrilling and rewarding in the end.  Tomorrow it begins.
