It has been almost two months since my last post. Numerous trips between the Shire East and the Shire West have occurred.
I have been at the Shire since December 8. There were meetings – a wonderful celebration (including a fair imitation of lembas) led by my colleagues in the Peacemaking Program (Tricia and I made the run to Costco to buy many of the other supplies) – a great dinner at Havana Rumba with good friends – a football game won and a football game lost.
Mostly there has been transition – pretty relentless transition – working to prepare the Shire to go on the market. Home repair is no where near the top of my list of either things I enjoy or things I do well – even when my primary role (well, pretty much my only role) is writing checks or making runs to Home Depot.
It is made more than a tad bittersweet because this marks the end of an era.
Tonight’s movie – 3 Godfathers – John Wayne does Christmas.
Tomorrow – Cleveland.
See you along the Trail.
