What a unique year to celebrate. I have had a lot of fun most of the year, but have started working at the state hospital in Glenwood, near Omaha. I am working with mentally challenged individuals, which offers a wide spectrum of personalities. Bumpy Rhodes is holding down my house in Ottumwa, I can’t have pets in my new apartment, so she has even more added responsibilities.
Many of you who read my blog know that I worked hard all summer catching lots of very large fish and camping through the summer. It is hard to get up and not go out to enjoy nature as freely as I have done for the last three years. I still am writing a lot and stay busy around the new town finding lots of hidden beauty. It is fun to have some closeness to some culture, having a large town twenty minutes away. My new town is only a few thousand, so a very different place to be part of in the lovely Loess Hills.
I am taking my time, but hope to have a new house soon. Moving is not very fun, and I have bought a lot of new things to make my life comfortable here. I hope you are having a good year and celebrate with all you know and love.
