I am not quite there, but I expect to be soon.
Those who read here know that I have been in the process of buying a house. It is in a northern suburb of Austin Texas. I do not yet truly feel I am a Texan, but I am realizing the innocent misunderstandings of youth about what it is to be one. I am in the process of getting to know my neighbors, making places within my home to hold stuff and placing my stuff in them. I am buying shelves for the garage, investigating the attic, replacing lights and fans, painting walls, buying rugs, and wondering what in HELL I am going to do with my back yard. I don’t even have a lawn mower and I have trees to trim.
But I am meeting kind and generous people. discussing the ins and outs of a new neighborhood, getting help from neighbors and giving help to them. In other words, I am finding my community. It is a good thing.
But it takes time, important time, but time, and I am only now getting back to previous tasks which are also important to me. But so I do and soon I will begin on my next project. I have the design and the colors are in mind. I have the frame and base and will begin the drilling once the garage is in order. Hopefully before Thanksgiving.
See you then.
