well, hello lovelies! oh how i’ve missed you! i just wanted to pop in today and give you a quick update. things are a teeny bit (ok, a lot a bit) hectic around here, but we’re making it! after making the two day trek to southern california over the weekend, we arrived at our a new humble abode sunday afternoon. we managed to unpack the trailer, grab some dinner at a local japanese restaurant and fall into the bed (ok, the mattress on the floor). whew!
monday’s morning coffee was nothing less than epic. i found the kettle, but not the coffee, the sugar but not the mugs. with everything still in boxes, i’ve been a little overwhelmed, but i’m getting to them one at a time. as you know, we sold just about everything before we came out here, so finding some furniture has been on the top of the list. and hopefully a couch, before anything else.
and we did! i stumbled into the local thrift store here and lo-and-behold our glorious couch and matching chair sat staring right back at me. brand new and still in the plastic wrap, they are all natural fiber, modern, cream and twilled in my favorite herringbone design. um, thank you! that was a dreadful task made easy. they were still at the top of our couch-budget, but we snatched them up. (i’ll be sharing photos as soon as i get this place organized!)
my new favorite place is the natural market place here. i already know the cashiers by name and quickly made friends with the cake ladies. they have several kinds of vegan cakes, a hot food bar, and healthy groceries galore. above is the fruit and veggie section- glorious, isn’t it?
so that’s been my week in a nutshell! today i’m determined to get the front room and kitchen organized, so i’m going to hop off here and get busy.
our internet is scheduled to get set up on monday (that was also quite epic), so i appreciate your patience! it might be a one-post-per-day kinda week, but things will get back to normal come next week, i promise. in fact, i’ve got a lot of fun stuff planned for you, including a sweet giveaway!
until tomorrow my friends! xox, bonnie
