Working on the road...

On January 1st, my husband, Bill, and I left Colorado for a year long journey around the country. 

Our original plan was to leave in the middle of November.  But, there were problems installing our new solar system, delays in having our towing system set up, snow and below freezing temperatures to contend with, and an unexpected surgery (everything is okay now).  So, after much shaking of fists and gnashing of teeth, we decided that we were as ready as we were going to be.  And January 1st seemed like sort of a poetic day to start a new adventure. 

My dad installed this IKEA desk for me and built shelves to go underneath.  And the new curtains are courtesy of my mom.  (Thanks Mom and Dad!)  Now we're just outside of Austin, Texas and I've been enjoying watching the cardinals and deer pass by my window while I work.  I wonder what other kinds of things I'll see during the coming year...?

We'll have our travel blog up soon in case you'd like to follow our trip.  :)
