Settling in

The plumber came yesterday and put in new faucets at the kitchen and bathroom sinks and the cleaning is almost done, so it's starting to feel like a functional home here. I've been promising you some photos and I finally installed the unit to upload them so here's a few to start with. The quality is not that great because it's not the best lighting conditions, but we've had so many afternoon storms that I thought I'd just grab a few shots while I had some sun.

This first one was actually before I moved in. I took it from the hotel on the day I decided to take this place.

I wish I had a better camera and could have taken a wide angle of this rainbow. It was a perfect double arc from horizon to horizon. This next one is the view from my front door. I live on a very busy street but the house is set back and this tree provides enough screening so it feels private even when the door is wide open.

And this is a lousy shot of my giant beech tree. It's hard to get a good shot of this one because it's so thick and you can't really capture how very present it feels. It has a strong spirit.

And here's a close up of the beech nuts. The tree is covered with them. Unhappily though, I see all this rain is not good for it. The leaves didn't have that blight on them last week. Still it seems healthy so I guess it will be all right.

If you click on the photos to embiggen them, they look marginally better.
