We moved into our house

Good Friday is one of the few holidays widely respected in the USA, so I got a day off work. Unpaid, of course, but at least free to do whatever. We made good use of this three-day weekend and moved most of our stuff out of the rented apartment into our own house. Tom, Mollie and I stayed at the house while Alejandra preferred to sleep in the apartment one more night. medium_daffodils.jpeg

The weather was very cooperative, nice and sunny, and pretty yellow daffodils were growing in our backyard to extend a warm welcome. My knees and back are aching, I can hardly move, probably because of carrying too many boxes with heavy stuff in and out of garages and up and down stairs.

Feels good to be sleeping in my own bed again, after three and a half months. There's still a lot to do in and around the house, but we're not that much in a rush anymore. I'll unpack one or two boxes per day, Tom might clean up the yard and the garage, we'll build a cabinet for Ted and storage shelves in the basement.  There will be more time to sit down outside, on the patio, or inside, by the fireplace, and enjoy.
