Last week felt like it was a month and like I spent more time at the hardware store than I did in my new house. I know this isn't actually the case but damn. Thomas is back at work today so it's time to settle into our summer routine. I'm looking forward to getting back to some semblance of normal even though our normal now is going to be a completely different thing than it was. I still feel like a traitor for moving to the 'burbs. It was a difficult choice but I think it was the right one.

Thomas seems to really be enjoying doing stuff around the house. I don't think he expected that. The man is incredibly smart when dealing with anything computer related but following instructions meant for normal humans is a challenge for him. He replaced our bathroom sink faucets last night and I had to explain to him that one should not have leftover parts at the end. They're both leaky. He's going to try and figure that one out tonight.

I ran out of coffee beans on Saturday so we drove the three miles over to the square in Marietta and checked out the farmer's market there before locating our new coffee bean source. Both were great. The market is a good bit larger than the one in Grant Park and runs on Saturday and Sundays. The coffee shop roasts beans twice a week and is fully staffed by OTP hipsters. There's a great comic store nearby and also a solid gaming shop. We found a small chain movie theater that is cheap and has free refills on cokes and popcorn and caught up on our Marvel movie watching. Totally enjoyed both XMen and Cap. America.

Finally got to do some work in the yard on Saturday, cleared up some dead bushes, took out some unwanted volunteer trees, pruned my rose and rearranged flower bed borders. Also got my herb plants potted and set an heirloom tomato in a big pot on the patio. I didn't think it was a good idea to try and plant a full on veggie garden this year but I want some 'maters. Hopefully the bunnies that are everywhere won't eat them.

Sounds like you are settling in quite nicely. Enjoy.
