A brief entry is better than no entry at all, or so I tell myself.
Attila and I have made the decision to move. This is not a simple project, nor is the decision made without some regrets. We love our home, the wildlife and the peace around us. However, we agree that another winter in the wild is not desirable.
What we have been up to is “decluttering” and doing minor repairs and inexpensive upgrades, in order to sell the property.
We have decided to try to locate nearer Luna and Terra, and are actively looking for work in that area. The physical landscape there is not as beautiful as it is here, but the human landscape is much healthier.
Preparing for the move is occupying all of our free time.
We are well into a heat wave at the moment, it was 32C today, in the shade, and very humid to boot. The house was closed up against the sun, so it remained relatively comfortable. However, it is not cooling down a lot at night, so that every morning the temperature is a little higher than the morning before. We are to have two more days of this heat, before the weather breaks and cooler air moves into the area.
I had made arrangements with my Uncle to visit him with my scanner and laptop. He welcomed the visit and I would have been able to create copies of valuable family documents. Alas, when I unpacked the scanner for a test run, it was not functioning. I had to postpone the visit, which was very disappointing.
Between preparing for a move, and the odd day of work, I find myself exhausted most of the time. When Attila and I sit down at the end of the day for a quiet visit and chat, I fall asleep on my chair.
