Well, we're back home. I use the word reluctantly because, to tell the truth, I'm more comfortable in California.
Of course that could be because California was mostly warm and sunny and New Hampshire is cold! The house, with only isolated heating until tomorrow when our first bottle of propane for the season arrives, is downright frigid. Not enough to freeze the pipes, but enough to make it very hard to get myself moving to get us all ready to return to daily life here. Hard to overcome the jet lag when the temperature inside in the middle of the day is colder than it was outside last night in Burbank.
But we're here and we're safe, if a little blue. A little blue from the frosty air. And a little blue from having to leave the warmth of the West Coast.
