The new apartment is spacious, and all new. I have 2 sunny windows for my plants, all new electric appliances and a great view. I'm really blessed with the view. It is helping to heal my heart from the loss of the family cottage all those years ago, and is providing a distraction from the loss of my daughter. My blood sugar has improved. I'm walking on average a mile and more just walking back and forth in the apartment, and that's when I remember to carry my phone to record my steps.
The main issue now is getting settled in. In our former apartment there was no room for my hubby to have a computer desk, so he is still using the kitchen table, which means there is nothing but a storage bin under the chandelier where the table should be. We sold our glass coffee table and end tables. We were tired of bumping into the corners. So now, until we find new tables, we have a bin in the middle of the living room floor. Honestly we didn't want to buy all new stuff because, well have you seen the prices? It's just going to take some time, and a friend with a truck. Also, since the old apartment was very small we never completely unpacked. Now I have a second bedroom but other than the closet and one shelf, no place to put stuff. It's a work in progress.
Here are some various pictures I've taken before and after we moved.
Before the appliances:
Master bedroom with bathroom and walk-in closet
Dryer in unit
Washer and water heater in unit
Drinking tea on the patio
We had a lot of cold and snow in April
I love the view
Tree line between farm fields, view to the south
Goose flying by. We also have Sandhill Cranes, and we have seen wild turkeys and deer in the distance
This is actually a breakfast nook but I get to use it for my plants, and the chest freezer
I can relax and look out at this
The rocky area adjacent to the patio. They said we can set flower pots on the rocks. The grass is just beginning to grow where all the straw is
The weather is looking like it will stay warm now. Maybe we can get some flowers soon :)
