I went down to CT for a few days to help
Hannah move into her apartment.
We scrubbed, vacuumed and measured.
We shopped, hauled and lifted.
We sweated, hydrated and took breaks.
We cussed and tried to figure out how to cut a hole in her
stairway without anyone noticing.
A few evenings this week Batman and his toolbox
will be helping with furniture assembly.
I am happy that she has a cute little vintage
firehouse on her block.
And that her neighbor downstairs has lived
there for years.
She can walk to the laundromat and one of the
funkiest, yummiest restaurants in the area.
Work is about a seven minute drive
and she can get to our house in 17.
Back in VT today,
I found a few ripe sungolds,
ready for lunch tomorrow.
The nasturtiums and marigolds are
hitting their stride.
I have fabric from IKEA to sew into curtains
for Hannah's place
and reading to catch up on.
And today is the last day of July.
Time is flying!
