That somewhere in this region, someone thought it would be a good idea to send the street sweeper down my street at 11:20pm. Now, at the old house, this wouldn't have bothered me one bit, the house was further back from the road. New house, closer to road, older windows. More noise coming in those windows. And now, at 11:25pm, it's coming back to do the other side. Fun times. Good thing -- the street will be cleaner tomorrow. Maybe I stayed up too late ... if I was tucked in bed at the back of the house, I wouldn't have heard a thing.

You'll forgive yet another long absence from my blog ... we've been moving. One thing we're trying to do as we unpack is to put all our books in one room. At the old house we had books in every room on smaller shelves. Now, we think we'd like to have them all together. However, we don't have bookcases yet -- I think they'll be here tomorrow. Until then, a friend unpacked the books for us, and they are piled in the den/TV room/library. I must confess, most of these are mine. I read a lot though ... and many of these are full series of books. It's nice to go back and read a series from beginning to end, without having to wait for them all to appear at the local library.
