It has been almost two months since my last post. Numerous trips between the Shire East and the Shire West have occurred.
I have been at the Shire West since December 8. There were meetings - a wonderful celebration (including a fair imitation of lembas) led by my colleagues in the Peacemaking Program (Tricia and I made the run to Costco to buy many of the other supplies) - a great dinner at Havana Rumba with good friends - a football game won and a football game lost.
Mostly there has been transition - pretty relentless transition - working to prepare the Shire West to go on the market. Home repair is no where near the top of my list of either things I enjoy or things I do well - even when my primary role (well, pretty much my only role) is writing checks or making runs to Home Depot.
It is made more than a tad bittersweet because this marks the end of an era.
Tonight's movie - 3 Godfathers - John Wayne does Christmas.
Tomorrow - Cleveland.
