I'm finally back online! A few of you may have noticed some comments on your blogs -- I'm really trying to catch up with everyone. It's going to take a while, though: I have over 200 unread items on my Google Reader. So please be patient with me, and don't think I've abandoned you!
Our new apartment is excellent. It's a huge mess right now, a maze of boxes and displaced furniture, but excellent all the same. We live right next to a cemetery, a grocery store, a delicious Thai food place and a thrift shop - I could probably stay within a 1 mile radius of this apartment for years and never get bored. And if I wanted to go outside of that 1 mile bubble, we're now about 15 miles south of Nashville ::: I can't tell you how happy I am to be in a small town without all that traffic! It's lovely.
My new favorite place is our balcony. It faces a bunch of trees, so it's very private and I imagine I will be taking a lot of photos out there! I also have a dream to one day sleep on the balcony, under the stars, but that will have to wait until we take care of a little wasp problem.
I even like the spider webs. Maybe I can train the spiders to help me get rid of the wasps. It's been raining all morning here and I'm just having the loveliest day. Since we live close to Robert's new job, he was able to come home for lunch. We spent most of that hour hunting for the SD card reader so I could upload these pictures from my camera. I've really been wanting to update here.
And this post wouldn't be complete without a donut picture. Even though we spent all day Saturday moving heavy furniture and getting overheated, Robert and I woke up around 5:30 on Sunday morning. We decided to have an adventure, so we made an early morning trip to our old apartment for a few more things and got donuts at Fox's Donut Den! Quite predictably, we became exhausted very early on Sunday. I think today is the first time in a while that I've felt well-rested and like my brain is back to normal!
I've just reopened my Etsy shop, but I probably won't be adding anything until I'm a bit more settled in. However, I suspect that soon enough I'll be finding treasures all over the place... I'm really excited about the vintage clothes I may find in this new town!
P.S.!!! Look what I found while catching up on blog-reading --- BABY SLOTH!
