Wowza! I just realized how many words I wrote in that last post...lol. I feel like I hadn't updated my actual everyday situation here in a while, and it's a huge chunk of my life right now, so it all came tumbling out at once. :)
Anyhoo - despite the busyness of these weeks, I'm finally starting to feel like I'm getting settled, here in my new home/neighbourhood! Now that boxes are nearly all unpacked (if not for homework, this place would be all organized and done! We've had to chip away slowly at it...) I've had time to listen to some 'United States of Tara' (which I love) while working in our main room on assignments - which, instead of making into the tv room, is now a room full of creative space, desks, and fun supplies. It's awesome!
I have to study nature for another assignment, and today was the first sort-of sunny day in what felt like a while, so I took a little nature walk when I got home and just snapped a few photos of my new 'hood: it's looking so lovely, right now! All the color seeping out of things, the fall colors coming in everywhere, rain droplets beading on top of leaves...so nice.
Here's what a bit of what I see everyday, now:
We moved out of the downtown core, kind of to the 'burbs, but not really (there's four busy walk-to-everything streets a mere few blocks in every direction, but you wouldn't know it from our place). There are not, however, and high-rise skyscraper apartment buildings, just lots of houses - houses with gardens and streets lined with old trees. Cute old houses and kids playing soccer afterschool. For some reason I find the alleys really attractive - I'm not sure why. lol.
And I can't wait to start my own garden in the backyard, next year. (Still so psyched that we have a backyard!) Mister husband and I are looking forward to planting our own carrots and such! Also, I got up at the crack of dawn last weekend to ride my bike to work, and when I came out into the alley (the last photo), it was covered in this eerie mist - I kicked myself for not having my camera with me! Hopefully I'll catch it one of these days...I love it when everything in a place still feels new. :) And I practically squealed when I saw that red mushroom! I've walked by it everyday for a few weeks, now and not seen it. It looks like a cartoon lawn ornament!
Hope you like my street. :)
