Sitting in a hotel, about 12 hours from finishing up with the notary on the house purchase. Moving in tomorrow at noon. So happy to be home, and to have a home.

Picture of House (we have the right hand side) and neighborhood.

Still not employed, but moving to Quebec. We’ve purchased a house there, moving in there in two weeks.

I’m not employed at the moment. And its ok. To be honest, a little recovery time is welcome. Just trying to not feel any shame or guilt about myself. Its a bit of a struggle.

I just thought @AspiringLuddite would approve of a picture of gumbo. Turkey, shrimp, and sausage.

I‘ve had a decent month. Started a new job. Very hard work, physical, but I’m enjoying the simplicity. I’ll get back to complicated soon.

Its been a hell of a month. I lost one of my jobs at the beginning of the month - my major employer. Did I deserve it? Hell no. Am I mad? Yes. Did I get severance and an NDA? Yes. But STILL.

So I took a few weeks off to grieve, because it was a job that I really identified with. Now that I no longer need to do that, I’m looking for a way forward in the tech/music field. Any and all suggestions and sympathies welcome.

This link is an interesting story about a recently rediscovered book that belonged to Thomas becket.

I’m struggling to stay on top of the administrative elements that my choir needs me to accomplish. And I’m really fatigued today, hope thats not a sign. Still, the winter is finally arriving and I like the cheery white spread in front of me. Hope you are all taking care of yourselves.

Dayna made some sweet good. Steak simmered into deliciousness with mash. I ate till i hurt.

Sometimes I believe that i read so much that i no longer have thoughts that are remotely my own.

I spend more and more time watching documentaries. ESP Monty Python.

I’m so sick of the news out of the US. So sick.
