First full day in the schoolhouse. We are opening it for the season. I woke at 6:30, late with less than a month to go before the summer solstice. The sun had already climbed from the horizon. There is very little noise other than the layering of birds, insects, and the occasional car on the highway. We are happy. The next few days will be spent cleaning and finding our bearings. Last nights arrival wasn’t too difficult. The new water pipe we laid last September provided extra water pressure and surprised some of our pipes, but the water was contained to the furnace room. Only a minor hitch.
