Getting settled in

I'm so glad the move is over! All of the boxes are unpacked and I am getting settled in my new place. One of the best things about it are the gorgeous eucalyptus and redwood trees outside the patio and bedroom window.

The bedroom window has a nice view of the pool, too, which is especially pretty when it is lit up at night. From my bed I look out over the jungle that is growing up out of the creek (a crazy blend of trees, brush, and vines) and can hear the constant sound of water flowing.

We are getting lots of chickadees to the bird feeders on the patio. The cats are highly entertained-- it's like they have their own cable channel that they can't stop watching. (I'm getting addicted to that channel, too!)

It is fun exploring the new neighborhood. This place is right down the street and very, very tempting. They have the best custard-filled maple bars I have ever tasted.

I was completely exhausted this week after the move, but I'm coming back to life after having a massage and pedicure yesterday. The only knitting I've done is to work on a scarf for about twenty minutes and I will post pictures of that soon.

I've missed you all and will be visiting your blogs today.

YAY you're moved in! Great views! Glad your kitties are happy, my kitty is still not very happy over our move :/

Hope all is well!



It's great to hear that you and the kitties are all settled in! Oh, oh...a donut shop is very tempting and I do like maple goodies!
Sounds very peaceful at your new home!

OMG, I can't imagine seeing redwoods and eucalyptus! So glad you are already settled. I think the Donut shop would be tempting me....

A massage sounds fantastic! You deserve it. Thanks for stopping by today and I have your chance in my giveaway!

Congratulations for getting moved. I can't think of anything I hate more -- unless it's a root canal. Moving is terribly exhausting.

But your new place -- and view -- are beautiful! It looks like all the work was totally worth it.

Kitty said...

Hurray! I just finished unpacked the last boxes yesterday and I feel great! Why is moving so damn draining? I'm glad you're feeling better!

Thimbleanna said...

WooHoo! You're all done. Your view is beautiful. I laughed at your birdie cable channel comment -- you know it's the perfect home -- every cat should have such a channel!
