Our move to Brooklyn is technically complete, everything we own has left DC and now resides in our beautiful fourth floor walk-up apartment. We’ve spent the last few days assembling furniture, unpacking boxes, buying groceries, getting internet, and just this morning we got our very first ‘real’ mattress delivered. Of course, not everything is finished, all of our pantry is still in two large boxes, we need several pieces of furniture to replace the ones we got rid of, and a few other odds and ends are still lying around on the floor or in a box.
But today we’ve either run out of things to do or run out of energy to do them, because we’ve been mostly lazing about, wishing our new air conditioner worked fast enough to compete with the heat and humidity outside. One thing about our new apartment we didn’t know the full extent of before we moved in, is just how amazing our views are. We’re able to see the Statue of Liberty, downtown Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building, as well as the really magnificent sunset beyond the shipping cranes on the New York Harbor.
Practicing my photography skills is officially on my to-do list.
I’ve just finished chart three on my Ravellenic Games shawl, the very first ‘dew drops’, which I think means I’m less than halfway done. Hopefully with most of the unpacking done and Ty back to work again next week, I’ll have more time to get back on track for finishing by the end of the Olympics. There might be some yarn shop visits in my future as well.
