IN THE FIELD: Busy Busy Busy


Where’s David been ???  Well here goes…we have been getting ready for the “big move.” My wife and have built a new home. It is something we have talked about doing since we first met.

For the last year we have been renting a small house while our home was being built. During the last few weeks of October, we have been busy with settlement on the home, and moving all the stored items (80% of our belongings) to the new house. Additionally, we have been packing the remainder of our stuff, organizing various contractors jobs, shopping for necessities such as window treatments (we do have neighbors), a new refrigerator (have to keep food and beer cold), and new bed coverings (winter is on the way) along with other odds and ends.

I have even managed to free up some time and shoot 4237 photographs of the Autumn foliage all across the northeast part of the country.

Okay, so I didn’t shoot 4237 photographs of Autumn foliage. But I did manage to find a few minutes here and there to document the whole building process of the house and to photograph some classic cars and trucks. It feels odd not being out with my camera, but soon enough I’ll be out exploring our new territory and sharing what I find.

I do miss all of your stories and wonderful photos you include with them. My new office will be the perfect place to catch up and I look forward to seeing what all of you folks have been up to.

I would also like to thank you all for the likes and the follows…they are truly appreciated beyond words.

The final move is soon upon us….then we get to unpack.

    Beautiful image.

    Thanks Meanderer, we are in the home stretch now…just have some clothes to pack and some odds and ends and we will be ready. It has been exciting going through the whole process…and fortunately painless!

    How exciting! Congratulations on the new house!

    • November 12, 2013 at 9:25 am

      Thanks Fergie, this has been a dream of ours for 20 plus years. All those episodes of Hometime and This Old House were a big part of the inspiration.

    You’ve moved! Congratulations! Such a great thing to build your own house 🙂

      Thank you Kristina, it sure has been pretty neat settling in to something we have always wanted! I was at the build site almost everyday, camera in hand, documenting the build process.
