    It's been six weeks since we moved back into our house, and it flew by. So many little things to fix/adjust. I'm putting up the wardrobe shelving today, ordering plants for the yard and still trying to find stuff in the bags and boxes from the move.

    The weather is getting pleasant so we shut down the geo-thermal yesterday and just let the breezes flow through the windows. (Haven't had windows that opened for almost 7 years.) The smell of clean air is fantastic.

    This is Fall in New Orleans, and next year at this time there will be the scent of many different flowers drifting around the house. I can't wait.

    Just starting to get back to normal in New Orleans after the storm. Our "Green" home is fine and running up to par.

    Looking at hurricane Gustav and wondering if our fortress can  handle the storm. (yes on the fortress, but I doubt the area can take it... we've been too screwed by the Feds and their local enablers)

    We are coming up on the 3rd anniversary of the Federal Flood of New Orleans, and we are still waiting to move back into our real home. Got the final approval last Friday, but City Hall moves like a snail on sending notices to the electric company.

    Alas, we happen to be some of the lucky folks here that have managed to get the repair work and elevation done. The house is better than it ever had been in it's 70 years. From the 9 foot deck in the rear I can look out at the city and the lights. It's in the safest neighborhood and the town. It's like living in the country and being a mile or so from the French Quarter. It's not a fancy or rich area- just little folks living their lives.

    Three years of living without a stove has driven us crazy. Hopefully next week we can fire up the new one at the huose. And a bath tub that doesn't turn the water orange. And our Geo-thermal system that going to save us $$$ on the power bill.
    Luck.
