Quick update because I realized I'd never posted after the move. We're here, we're settling in and getting organized, and I'm finding that I can survive with the nearest civilization (and by civilization, I mean anything bigger than a gas station) being half an hour away by car. It's actually been far easier than I expected to plan so that I only have to grocery shop once a week. Last week I spent a day making curtains for the kitchen, and we've got a lovely banana bread in the kitchen that's the result of my ongoing domestic mood.

The best part, though, is that half the time when I hear a noise outside and look out the window? I see deer wandering through my yard. Deer! I'm a city girl, people; in my lifetime I've seen the odd raccoon or fox or—on one occasion that traumatized my then-four-year-old brother beyond words—bull snake, but deer? And apparently there are bears and bobcats and coyote out here, too, but I haven't seen them.

It's a fabulous place to live, and a great work environment, too. Very peaceful.

Speaking of work.... I'm currently in the middle of a story for an anthology to be released by Dancing Fools Press later this year, so I'm going to be pretty busy over the next month or so.

Now, off to meet my new doctor and get several pints of blood taken for various tests to make sure I'm healthy—or at least that I was healthy before they started the vampire routine. *g* Since the doctor's office is nearly an hour away, we're going to make a day of it and have lunch at Outback, do some shopping, and go see the new Harry Potter movie.
