Feeling marvelous; spending my first night in my Portuguese house

I’m feeling on top of the world right now as I look forward to spending my first night in the house I’ve bought in Central Portugal.

My shipment of furniture and personal effects arrived on Monday. It was picked up at my home in Albuquerque on April 12. I’ve been living out of two suitcases ever since. The two guys who delivered it worked incredibly hard. They went out of their way to drag the wooden shipping crate into my yard so I can use it as a shed for my bikes and tools instead of having to buy one.

I’ve been busy all week unpacking and setting up everything, but I have a long way to go and lots of essentials to buy.

My living room is almost set up. I will use the wood burning stove for heat in the winter.

One of the main things that persuaded me to buy this house was the view from the kitchen and dining room area across a valley.

View from the kitchen window. Obviously the yard is going to take a lot of work. That’s my next project.
