two weeks worth

We moved exactly two weeks ago today and are slowly but surely getting settled in to our new environment and are feeling very blessed and thankful.

We've enjoyed our first Pasta Sunday with visits from friends and family.

We've been listening to roosters crowing and horses naying.

We've taken a couple walks and visited the goats again. I am hoping to meet some human neighbors soon.
stand up and eat
I guess it is true, they will eat anything that's in reach.

I'm settled in my office and in the work groove. I absolutely love the view and pinch myself just to make sure it's real.

We've been drying our clothes outdoors.

There's no gas hook up for the dryer but there is a clothes line. This is new for me and i LOVE it! I'm not in a hurry to get a new dryer, at least until the rain comes.
air drying
Knowing I'm decreasing our use of energy and the crunchy smell of goodness from the sun feels really good.

We've also had morning visits from the hot air balloons as they pass by.
Last weekend one was right outside the back door and we could see and hear the people talking in the basket, super neat.
We've watch the dogs enjoy the spaciousness of the property too.

Jack likes to lay in shade and enjoy the afternoon breeze. While Hobo love to walk the perimeter several times a day before rolling in the grass and napping.

We've also found the local pizzeria and Deli and visited twice.
love Caprese?
They have a Caprese sandwich that's my new fave. So good!

Monkey finished her studies last Friday and has enjoyed a few days with friends, a class field trip to Magic Mountain and some shopping time with her momma. Her graduation ceremony is tomorrow and we are so excited.
Here is the picture i took for her announcements.

Enjoy your week and thank you for stopping by this space of mine, i always enjoy reading your comments.
