This past weekend, with much help from L’s parents, we moved from our rental into our new home.
K loves having a huge yard to play in as well as big windows that look out onto both the front and backyard. We can’t wait to get a dog-door in for her in the mud room. In the mean time we are trying to train her to go in and out of the house through that door.
We are adjusting to several changes this week, one of which is the in driving distances, L is ten minutes further from work and I am the same distance further to the grocery area and hospital. We have a different heat system and the cook stove in the kitchen in electric not gas. The more I unpack and look around the more cleaning to do or repairs to be completed I seem to find.
But we are also enjoying how quiet it is here. The only sounds are frogs and crickets at night, the occasional bleat from the sheep next door during the day, and wind through the trees . It is definitely peaceful.
