Settling In

It’s amazing how fast we could adjust from a life as campers to a life as “City Slickers” in a real house.
Everything has found a natural place here. And even Molly has adjusted nicely to her new home. The only thing she doesn’t like is the operating sounds of an older microwave. Indeed, she tries to hide in a closet, which we won’t allow her.

Of course, we both have a “new” commute to master. For Bea the commute has shrunk down from 40 min. to a 15-20 min. drive, for me it is still the same amount of time, but instead of open highways I have to negotiate through the traffic melee of Edmonton.
The distance I drive is a bit shorter though.

How nice is it to come home to a ready cooked meal and a baked banana cake???? VERY NICE!

And boy are we getting spoiled by the weather! The last days it has been a spring-like temperature with highs up to +6C. Sun is shining from a clear blue sky and everybody is taking a deep breath. It is a fact that the recent weather has been “the talk of the town”. And it is still going to last for this entire week. Sure nice to have a break in the cold of an Alberta winter.
I was thinking whether I should drag out the “lawn chairs”.

But that must wait for yet another warm day.

Thanks again for stopping by.


  1. Banana Cake and Fresh Flowers too! They are so pretty

  2. Hmmm, I might hold off a little bit longer before you pull out the lawn chairs !! LOL

  3. @ Betty: The fresh flowers were provided by our host. There were vases with fresh flowers in several locations in the house.
    @ Sassy: I agree. Yesterday they predicted a bitter cold February. But I enjoy the mild weather as long as I can with long walk along the river. There was too much sitting lately.

  4. Nice to settle in and be warm.
    We have settled in my father in laws house here in Ontario, cooking meals for him, getting stuff done and helping him out.
