Where have I been?


Some of you may have noticed that there is a rather large hole in my postings since April.

I'll try to get you caught up...

Sometime around the end of May, I turned 40. As much as I had expected that this day would herald in a new era of my life, that I would somehow feel transformed, it was another day just like the rest. The party was great, even if the weather wasn't. Oh well...

We moved house.

We found a duplex in a village about 5km away from our apartment. 4 bedrooms, garden, lots of space, 3 rooms in the cellar, etc. Really nice. Quiet. Just what we wanted.

This was a major undertaking, involving huge amounts of equipment and time. It is still amazing to me how much stuff we had accumulated as a couple in a short five years. Even more amazing is how we were able to fit all of this shit in our tiny apartment!

Another exciting event was moving our 180 liter (50 gallon) aquarium. 5 people, technical support, and countless buckets filled with fish and plants. We did it though, with only one loss - one poor fish got sucked into the filter. :( Amazing that everything lived.

As you, dear Reader, can imagine, we are still in the process of unpacking and organizing the house. It seems like every time we empty a box, two more appear in it's place. There's still so much left to do...

So, all in all, the only excuse that I can give is that I've been lazy. It's not like I haven't been grilling or cooking great stuff - things have been going great. I've still got tons of ideas, thoughts, etc. I just haven't expressed them.

More coming in the near future.

I bid you Peace,
