We’re homeowners. All the paperwork has been completed. Early this afternoon Helaine and I were handed keys to a home in what was an avocado grove a few years ago.
Am I allowed to say anticlimactic? Of all the benchmarks we’ve passed this was the easiest!
So, here we are in a house without furniture or furnishings. We don’t even have a refrigerator yet.
Until then we will stay down the road in our hotel. There’s a story there too. We’re staying in a former lima bean silo!
We still have lots to accomplish, so we headed out to dinner and some Home Depot shopping.
We have a logistical problem. Doppler!
We don’t want to leave her in a hotel room, so we’ve been finding places where we can eat outside. That’s how the fountain photo found its way here. It’s at the local shopping center, a few minutes from the house.
The three of us sat on comfy chairs out in the golden sunshine that precedes sunset. Helaine and I munched from Panera. Doppler patiently watched.
It’s been very hot in parts of the Southwest. Where we live temperatures rose into the 80s with low (for Connecticut, but high for here) humidity. No kvetching from me.
I could get used to this outdoor oriented life. In fact, I will.
I miss my friends, but looked at the Connecticut radar plots today and didn’t miss that.
