Is it real?

The transition is (sigh) ongoing.  We have created increasing pockets of sanity in our apartment. The kitchen is coming together now that I found the silverware and we have more that two place settings. The bedroom is still getting there too. The clothes are hung and we've been sleeping in the bed since day one. Ahh bed you feel so good after a long day of moving things from here to there. 

I'm starting to get to know the neighborhood. I've been to three different grocery stores and sadly none of them have a decent stock of scone mixes. We found an acceptable one but nothing to write home about. I don't think I will be making any special trips for it.

The farmer's market is just a few blocks away! The fruit is amazing. I didn't think I liked blackberries till D had to get some. I may have tried to steal them away till he distracted me with peaches. That was after we had some great tacos, beans and rice. Yep they have lunch vendors too. I think most of them do, but next week I am trying Ethiopian food. I may just have to sneak down to the English baker and get some scones before church. Oh the choices I face...

I stopped into the LYS under the guise of needing the yarn D bought me wound. What? I can't make my swift work right now. I'm trying to figure out how to fix it so it will attach to a table again. We all know how urgently I needed that yarn wound up?!

I've got a library card and have checked out some books. That always makes me feel better. We also did a library tour because why not, it is my home away from home.

D is pretty happy to be getting home cooked meals again. The zucchini was just too good to pass up too. I cooked it up with some other veggies, poured it over some rice and threw on some mozzarella and called it dinner. I think it was so good that he called it lunch too.

I have found the camera and the cord that connects it to the computer but I hate doing it that way. I am hoping to talk hubby into a new laptop soon. I really need to pull out the old brick and find out if she is really dead. She was a fine computer and served me well for many, many years.

Tomorrow I have to take the car in for some service and look at that it just happens to be down the road from a cat rescue organization. Wow it is almost like I planned it that way. We went to Petsmart last weekend and chatted up some people. I think once the house is set to rights I will need to hear some delicate feline feet running around. 

Well I guess I should go unpack a few more boxes, either that or I could knit a few rows...

  2. 🤗 I'm so happy you are finding your way. Yarn always good and purring even better. You'll both get to know your new surroundings together.
