This past week was spent setting up the house.
Since everything was dirty from storage, each item had to be cleaned before entering the house. Miraculously, there was very little damage from storage and shipping.
Opening each box was a voyage of discovery. Slowly, all the things personal to our lives revealed themselves: pictures, souvenirs, ceramics, books, tools, etc. Even the Lava Lamp. It was all there and slowly wrapped us with familiarity. Our new house is beginning to feel like home.
There is no point in writing about setting up the household; every reader of this triplog knows the drill.
However, this is the end of the Excellent Adventure.
In a little over two years, we have seen more of the country the most folks see in a lifetime. Some places are prettier than others, some more interesting than others, but all have something unique if you look for it. This really is a big, beautiful country and hopefully, someday, you will have the opportunity to enjoy it as we have.
We learned that the country is full of people going about their daily business, each making a contribution in his or her own way. We met lots of interesting and talented people and hope they enjoyed sharing a few moments with us as we enjoyed sharing time with them.
So, dear triplog readers, this is the end. Thank you for traveling along with us; we hope you enjoyed it as much as we have.
It is now time for us to move on with the rest of our lives.
