I still haven't found the camera. Otherwise there would be pictures of the newly moved houseplants looking confused with their leaves pointing the wrong way.

The forecast for mixed sleet, snow, and freezing rain kept me busy yesterday and today making sure everything I might need was at the new house--suddenly I remembered all the batteries and my favorite flashlight and the kerosene lamps were still at the old house. I cancelled my father's already rescheduled doctor's appointment in case the freezing rain arrived on schedule (it didn't) and I brought in enough wood for a day for both stoves yesterday before the rain started. I did seven loads of laundry today, instead of my usual pre-storm cooking frenzy, because I'd already cooked a lot, and there were a lot of sheets and blankets that had been moved dirty. Now I'm sitting here listening to the sleet on the windows. It sounds like insects bumping against a lamp.
