Settling in . . . Slowly




I wish I could say that I was so inspired by the speed of my awesome movers that I quickly unpacked . . . but after that great first night in the new apartment (with no more highway noise!) I have been moving slowly today. 

I caught up with the block lotto over coffee this morning and put togetherthe August sneak peek email, then unpacked the stuff in my car . . . with a break to cool down about midway.  I went out for some essential shopping–ˆ couldn't resist these sunflowers.  I cam home and finally started laungry and cleaning and unpacking.  The boxes in the photo are mostly filled with boooks . . . isn't it interesting that however you organize your books on the shelf, when it comes time to pack them, all that really matters is size?

Grace Hopper has found a new hiding spot–I have no idea where–and is spending most of her time curled up there. If she's out, she's very vocal, clearly expressing her discomfort with change.  Johnny is dozing on the top of the kitty jungle gym as if it and he was always here. Earlier, there was a bit of feline monkey-see, monkey do going on and I found him in the fireplace and Grace ready to join him. At the old place, I know that the sounds of the birds came into the apartment through the fireplace . . . I suspect they think now that they can get inside the fireplace, they have a better chance of actually finding a bird . . .

Johnny Monkey see, monkey do

. . . on to some serious unpacking now . . .

Sounds like a very successful move. Good for you! I'm tired just thinking about your boxes.

If they would just unpack themselves, possessions would be so much more valuable!

Happy housewarming, I hope you love your new digs. The thing I hate about moving-in is that in order to do anything you have to move something else first, and in order to move that thing, you have to move the thing in front of it. And in order to do THAT, you have to take three things off the top of it.

I'm so far behind with blogs I didn't realise you had moved. No wonder you've been quiet.

Hope the kitties are settling in ok.

I don't envy you all the unpacking... We haven't moved since before Sarah was born (over 13 years ago) and I can't imagine how much stuff there would be to pack, move and unpack were we to move now. Yikes! But at the same time, it's lovely to be in a new space, especially if it's nicer than the old space!

Happy unpacking. The cats look intrigued with that fireplace.
