Moved in and a snow day!
Leila and I are home working today as we woke up to an inch or more of snow in the yard. It's continued to snow on and off pretty heavily all day bringing us to 3-4 inches for now. Woot, woot! We're moved over, but not moved in yet. While the house is covered in blue tape denoting drywall boo-boos and soon missing paint, it's slowly become our home. Will be very nice to be able to put things away and be here continuously without regular kick-outs for painting, staining and poly-ing. But for now we're all adjusting to the difference of living with real neighbors, planning for furniture purchases, continuously sewing curtains and enjoying much, much more space. And amazing washer machine...I mean oh my gosh the washer machine. I washed 4 quilt/blankets and an armful of towels and it all got clean and dried in under two hours. Fantastic. At the loft, I had to have a 'sport' sized washer/dryer because they fit inside a closet with a water heater and HVAC. So thankful to have laundry in-house - they were great when it was just me - but I had no idea how much time I was spending on laundry when I didn't need to. Crazytown.
Leila is settling in. She's a little annoyed that she can't watch the cars go by and does her best to climb high on the couch for a shot out the windows. For now she's settled into the sunroom's sort-of bay window. As soon as construction and dust has passed I plan to make a little cushion and line it with pillows for her little fluffy self and anyone else wishing to watch the yard and enjoy the sun.
