Every day we make progress in the settling in process. Some days more than others.
Counters, especially large ones like ours, tend to become work tables or dumping areas. Sundays are a good time for a fresh clean start.
The clay cobbler-man still sits on the counter waiting for some of his pieces to be glued back on. He is originally from our travels in Peru, a survivor of multiple breaks.
Later that evening Mike assembled my bookshelves while I worked on connecting all the cables between the computer and the power source. He thought that would be easy and that I couldn't go wrong. I wasn't so sure.
It was fun to take my neighbor-friend to Monday Meal. Mike can't go during robot build season. They meet every evening except Fridays, although that may change toward the end of the six weeks.

Tuesday two family members stopped by to see the progress: Karen, after an interview at the high school; and Kayla after her last class.

Thursday Sam delivered our beautiful new dining room table. Two inserts allow for a 9 foot extension.
I moved the small table we had been using to the solarium. I've been told it was the first one my parents had. I need to learn more about its history.
Friday, I took a couple packets to Muncie to be delivered to my friends in Xocenpich. At the church I met a couple ladies who've traveled with the team for more than twenty years now.
In the evening my friend Jane and I went to a ladies' weekend at a nearby retreat center.
We awoke the next morning to a snow scene, lovely while it lasted.
The fellowship with women of all ages was rich. A weekend not soon to be forgotten. :-)
However, I missed out on grandson Elijah's 7th birthday party. :-(
And now, back home, I'm trying to catch up.
