This week in New England.

I had trouble sleeping all week, I couldn't get to sleep and I'd wake up early. Today, Saturday, I slept for 10 hours and it was awesome.

My sauer-kraut finished this week. It's really salty. I try to have some every day. It's been a long time since I've fermented anything, and I'm glad it was a success.

We had dinner with some friends last night in their garden. We ordered sushi take-away and ate with gentle music, home made mojitos, and good friends. It was a fantastic night.

I've been in New England for about 1.5 yrs now. I'm finally settling into a community. I found hackerspace to do projects, I have a few great friends, I'm successful at work. We don't like the apartment we're in but that's a fairly easy change.

Jessie is about to graduate and I don't know what that will mean for where we will be. She's really enjoying her time at the VA in Northampton and would love to be hired full time but they may not be hiring additional OT's right now.

The future, as always, remains uncertain.

Also, there was a tornado this week. It touched down in Springfield about 1 mile from our house. Everything in its path was devastated. Everything outside of it's path got a little wet. It's such a stark difference, there's almost no middle ground. Some areas were without power for a day or two but that was about it. I recorded a few clips of the rain with my fancy iDevice
