Busy, busy, busy!

I have spent more time in stores in the past two and a half weeks than I have in the rest of my life combined! You cannot imagine how many things you have to buy for a new house. This past weekend, Ash helped me lay out soak hoses in the garden, so at least I can stop worrying about all my plants dying. I may still lose one or two (they look pretty stressed), but hopefully they'll recover.

This morning on the way to work, it was very foggy (well, smoggy, I suppose). It makes for beautiful sunrises. The sun was hanging there like a huge peach. And there was a little dark spot on it, which stayed there and didn't move. I think I was seeing a sunspot! Crazy, huh?

On the radio this morning, I heard about the new president of Haiti, who, listening to the radio from his retirement home in Florida, learned that he had been elected president, and flew back to Haiti post haste! He sounded like a very nice man.

Well, that's it for now. I need to get back to work, so I can leave early and be home when the washer and dryer are (finally, hopefully) to be delivered.


Well, I am the proud owner of a new house. It is beautiful, and I am very happy with it. I am thankful to God, and amazed at his kindness. Tonight I will attend the neighbourhood association meeting (first Thursday of the month) and sleep in East Point for the first time, in a sleeping bag. Tomorrow morning I will fight traffic to get to work for the first time. Tomorrow night and Saturday I will probably do some moving.

Consider this a public invitation to come visit.

I live about five minutes from the Atlanta airport. I have three bedrooms, and need only one. I grew up with all sorts of people visiting us, and I miss it. If you or any of your friends is traveling through Atlanta, you are welcome to stay at Hotel East Point for the night. I want my home to be open to anyone to visit. Just give me a few weeks' notice so I can buy some furniture!
