Week Update: New place, new space

I am glad to be here. I just hate the process of trying to settle in. However, there are a lot of great things about this house that I think will make it a pretty effortless process. For one thing, this place has the cutest back deck. I cannot wait to string twinkle lights and pretend like I am going to start being social to the point of having summer dinner parties in the twilight.
This house is significantly larger than my old space, thus widening up Scout's whole universe. She has many windows it sit in now, lots of places to explore and screen sliding door with the best view of the neighbors 4 dogs and a rooster.
There is a garden space in the backyard! While it is too late for this season (as I already have plants doing poorly in the community garden) I am excited to be able to live in the same place where I grow things. I did, however, manage to transplant my flowers, hostas, herbs and some free-agent tomatoes (that came up on their own).
It was a year ago that both Levent and I moved into different spaces. (Apparently, I always move on Levent's birthday weekend. Ugh). Right after that move, I got sick. And guess what. Today, I have a really sore throat and am not feeling awesome. I hope it's just allergies and exhaustion. Otherwise, it's clear that moving makes me sick. I hope this is the last time (for at least a year or so) that I have to move
Oh well. I am just happy to finally be here.
