Our stuff has arrived. The computer and network are up and running. I have sweaters and scarves and wool socks available again. I seem to be the only person who is cold all the time in the whole city, but wearing the Tilted Duster sweater yesterday was heavenly. Wooly goodness.
So far, I haven't found a single broken item from the move. Our box of toothpicks, unsealed, made it all the way from New York to Oregon without losing a single pick to the bottom of the box. But once I got my hands on the larger box, half of the toothpicks were scattered throughout "Kitchen - Misc." I have many boxes in my life labeled "Misc." It has been like Christmas, a little. It's certainly chilly. (Yes, enough with the talk about being cold. I could turn up the heat, and all would be well.)
The weekend is looking good: a baroque concert, haircuts, farmers' markets, and theater. And the delivery of our books and wine. Bliss!
