Well, hello there, friends!
Pull up a pillow and some refreshments and let’s catch up!
So… yes! The last time we spoke, I was getting ready to head to Readerfest! That was a crazy time….. For anyone who DID go to Readerfest and who did not see on social media that I was NOT going to make it, I apologize for not being there.
There were some personal issues, unrelated to me, and, as a result, I was no longer desired to attend Readerfest and asked not to come after all (though I was already 17 hours into my trip). As it so happened, I was spending the night at a friend’s house in Fresno at the time, and it all worked out very well!
In fact, my hunny and I were in the middle of trying to decide where in California we wanted to move to, and I was able to see for myself that Fresno ticked all of our boxes – his, hers, and ours!
So, exactly a month later, we packed ourselves and our kitties into a rental car and drove to California to find a new home to live in! We’ve been here for about a week now and are still looking for a place (the place we were told was a sure bet turned out to not rent to non-California residents). But, it is absolutely gorgeous now! And while my hunny is crazy stressed, things are actually pretty lovely!
The most AMAZING thing so far that both my hunny and I are somewhat fixated on is not the cooler weather, the bigger city, the excessive resources, the crazy number of people, the ridiculous cost of everything, but, instead… the TREES! Y’all won’t be surprised to hear that (see Grandmother Tree), but my friends in California are.
The lack of trees in the desert does not immediately strike one, but after several years, it becomes this “splinter in your mind” – and it makes you a little crazy after awhile.
If you’re around abouts near Fresno, keep your eyes out for me or shoot me a message and lets hang out – and keep your ears open because things are about to get very fun!
