greetings from amityville

The flies are (mostly) gone. The leaks plugged. The septic fixed. The ghosts are quiet. The chickens kept to their side of the window today. Hey, I even have most of my unpacking done.

Things are beginning to settle in, down on the farm.

And it’s about time, right? Of course, right about the time things settle into normal is when change comes up to tap on your glass.

I don’t mind the change, mind you. I find it exciting. Then again, sometimes change means reverting back to how things were. Especially when the baby birds who flew the coop decide to fly back to the nest after all.

Yep. I have kids moving in again. Funny thing is, I’m looking forward to it. And not just so I have someone else to do the dishes (but don’t think I’m not pleased about that). I’m looking forward to having family around again.

Oh, I may change my mind…give me a month or so and check in again. Lucky for me, things will probably change again by then…like they always do.

Until the next time…I’ll be waiting for the next thing to change.
