March 28, 2010: So it has been one month since I moved from CA to NH and so far, so good. I truly do miss some of my close friends back on the West Coast (hi Matt, Chris, Matte, Ben, Eric, Thomas, Brian, Kai, Kevin, Noam, Tim, David, Chris-Mimi-Jon-Liz, Ashish & Jill & Crew, Rob and Susan and the rest of ya!), but this change continues to feel right. It's certainly good to be closer to Tim, Gini, Paul & Kara, Tab, Alex, Johnson, and I'm looking forward to catching up w/other friends in the area as well as making new ones. Certainly been an easier transition than when I moved to CA 11 years ago.
Hahah, I don't think I'll ever be bored again, as there always seems to be a project that needs work, once you own a new house. Heheh, I like that a lot, hehehe well for now I do :)
Work was a bear this past week and I had no time to do anything until Sunday. On that day, I was up early and outside by 9 AM working on the yard. With the excpetion of a small break to run to Home Depot with Paul, I worked until about 4. OMG, I was exhausted by the end of the day, but I got a lot of brush cleared out, raking, and pruning done. I could use a crew of landscapers to help out, but I just need to break down what needs to be done and do a little bit at at time :)
More updates to follow. Just wanted to get a quick update in here and say hi :)
March 15, 2010: Heheh, so my Koi Pond is a Koi Lake :) Gonna have some fun figuring out a good draining situation. Either going to involve a shovel or per my brother, a sump pump! The nice thing is that I have power out there, so it's an option. Happily, the water is slowly draining away from the house (top left in the picture).
March 12, 2010: OK, a few pictures of the project known as my house. Here we go:
Lets zoom in on the gazebo (yes, there is power up there). Koi pond is fenced in (more picts of that soon)
and that's it for now! I love this place!!! A video tour will be posted soon :)
March 8, 2010: This is to confirm that on March 1, 2010 I purchased my first home!!! I'm now living in Dover, NH :)
Tons of updates to follow w/in the next few days, along with pictures. Suffice to say, Clarice and I are doing well :)
