There's still plenty of settling in left to do, but we are no longer wondering where the clean socks are or consulting The Spreadsheet to find extension cords and batteries. Last week I repeated a dinner (Greek salad), and the other night I made popcorn (a failed batch--boo!), and not long before that I baked banana bread on the hottest day of the year (worth it). We've had dinner guests and houseguests. I have a library card, a dump sticker, and a Massachusetts drivers license. We've re-learned leaving the house in July without a sweater and resisting the urge to scratch mosquito bites. So I guess you could say we live here now. So far so good.
Between the adorable rabbits and the handsome tall trees, will we manage a kitchen garden? That's the big question.
