As promised, here are some views of what’s been going on at Casa Deluxe. At first it was manageable, but as the boxes kept coming in we had to make quick decisions about storing and donating some large items. We gave the movers a very large desk to do with as they wished, as well as an ugly chandelier one of them liked. One half of the loft is my writing cubbyhole, with a drop-leaf desk behind Tech Central, where I’m setting up and networking the three computers and TV. The other side of the loft is my wife’s more traditional writing area. The back yard is temporarily full o’ boxes, but I’m taking them to the recycling center one carload at a time. I also put ads in craigslist and a freecycle site, and people came and took away some of them. One morning as my wife was getting coffee, she watched as a very young deer grazed around the back and settled into a sunny spot for a nap. I’m trying to live in peace with the other animals, but not all of them are as polite as the birds and deer. Pretty soon I’m going to have to deal with a gopher who thinks because he was here first, he gets to tear up our back yard.
