I hope that everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!! We had a fun Halloween in our new place… Thats right! New place!! We've been moving over the last month. We have moved from a two room cottage to a full blown house. Having a place to put everything is a new concept for me. I feel as though I've been living out of a suit case for the last fourteen years. Probably because I have… I've been a bit of a vagabond.
I remember how excited I was when I first moved out of my parents house. That was fourteen years ago. Since that initial move, I have now managed to move a total of 12 times. I hate moving… Even more than I hate cleaning… We officially finished cleaning our old place, and are now focused on the new place. Our old place consisted of a living room/dive shop/office combo and a bedroom/tv room/crap in boxes room. Now, we have room for everything. I can even think more clearly. It's nice to feel uncluttered. I've been arranging my new kitchen. It's a work in progress and still a total mess as I sort through everything.
I'm looking forward to posting pictures of my cleaned up kitchen! I love all the natural light in here. The last place we lived in was the downstairs of a house. Like a cave. A cluttered cave… During our move we've been eating lots of sushi, sandwiches, carrots, apples, and breakfast for all meals of the day. Now that I'm getting organized I can cook again! I am excited for this new phase of life and can't wait to post some recipes. I just made a stew of wild rice, lentils and butternut squash. It's the first recipe from my new kitchen… Coming soon!
