I am in the yurt, at least for writing, resting, sleeping, and hanging out.  I have slept "here" for the past three nights.  It is very comfortable and comforting.  I keep a candle going until late, so I can see my way around.  Not much ambient light.  Stars, and the coming of the moon.
I have an inflatable bed, a couple chairs, my computer and a few storage bins.  Electricity comes from a battery charged by the sun.  The bathroom is outside for the moment, shower and kitchen are back at my brothers house.  These things will change, but for now I am in no hurry.
Wabi-sabi is a Japanese philosophy, finding beauty and function in simple objects, clean and uncluttered.  I hope to adhere to that approach in furnishing and decorating this round house/home.
For now I will enjoy it.
Let's see what comes next.
