Still Packing, and Going Strong

When folks hear that I own my city home free and clear and can take my time packing, they comment on how nice that is, but I now wish I'd done more pre-packing and had a deadline so I could be done already.  :)  We probably have about 2/3 of our worldly goods over at the city house now, but as any software developer knows, 90% of the effort usually goes into the last 10% of the details.  There's the desks, the file cabinets, the kitchen, and the cleaning...  Then we've got to try to sell the place.

The winds up on the ridge have been pretty impressive on colder days.  I wore two hats some days, and fleece was definitely better than knitted articles for cutting wind.  I'll have to do more felting and get a full set of matching wind resistant winter gear together by next year.  Things are more reasonable this week, the temps are up into the 20s and the wind is mild.  We got a lot done this weekend.

But the amazing thing is that on my day or rest, I'm not taking any pain meds, I'm not taking any muscle relaxants, and I'm not trying to sleep off the pain.  I have a little stiffness in my right shoulder, but frequent range of motion exercise and massage seems to keep it in check and keep me working.  Hallelujah!

I'll probably cheat a bit on this day of rest, the poor fishie is in his "trailer home" and could use the better climate control system in his full sized tank, and the shrimp also would rather be in the tank with more surface area for oxygen exchange.
