with wide eyes we see

The last few days it seems that I’ve been spending a lot of time in my room desperately trying to catch up on emails, blogs, and other computer related endeavors as well as unpacking and setting up a personal space in someone else’s home.  And all I can say is thank goodness for Pandora.  I’ve been stationed into The Weepies & Laura Marling for the perfect aural environment.

My new accommodation includes a view of a golf course and a very nice little patio nook.  I like going to the large sliding glass door in the mornings and just watching… everything.  I forget how green it is in Southeast Texas, year round.  I also forgot just how many bugs and critters that come with living below the mason-dixon line.  Yuck.  (I can do w/o that cultural experience thank-you-very-much.)  I guess we’re all trying to (re)familiarize ourselves with our new surroundings as the kitties are making their own adjustments too.  Dutch saw his first squirrel and Manchester is trying to figure out what to do about being at eye level with neighborhood cats that come up onto the porch.  I didn’t realize just how insulated those two little kitties have been in our 2nd floor home.  And that’s made me think: maybe I too have been a little too insulated in my life…
