This morning I woke up at 5 but after feeding the cat it was back to bed for me. Sleeping in until 8:30 was such a luxury and I think tonight’s gonna be an early night because I still need more sleep but I feel like I’m coming back to life.
Despite the chilly weather I took my book, cup of coffee, and James the cat out to the balcony this morning. I think the balcony will be my happy place. Cool, relaxing, and quiet. Perfect.
I realized this afternoon/late morning I am actually supporting 2 squirrels, both seem to be friendly although one is a bit more aggressive than the other in the demand for food but quickly learned boundaries when James lunged at him after the squirrel decided to climb the screen door.
I am entertained but also trying not to end up feeding an entire family of squirrels but it might already be too late. I guess now I’m on the track toward becoming the “crazy squirrel lady” 😄 The bright side is the squirrel mix I buy consisting of peanuts and sunflower seeds costs next to nothing when I buy from the bulk bins.
Today I had my first non-squirrel visitor since I’ve unpacked and received another glowing approval of my new place! Yay! I told her I couldn’t take all the credit, my mom was a huge help in picking out places.
I took my first walk today and realized everything is well within easy walking distance, not at night but during the day I could walk less than a mile to a variety of stores so that’s a definite perk. I knew everything was close but didn’t realize exactly how close and now I know, faster to walk than to drive.
Today has flown by and I already have plans for tomorrow. I passed up on something tonight but it just wasn’t my scene and honestly I want a movie night. A night to just kick back, relax, not unpack, not clean, not do anything but settle in and watch a movie. I know I should be more social but I feel like I’m going to be staying pretty busy over the next few weeks (I have plans for almost every weekend) so a night to relax on my own without worrying about what I need to do next is not unreasonable.
That’s what I’m off to do! Making plans for a Meal Plan Monday post because as I settle into my second week of work I realize meal plans are needed now more than ever. Coming home from work at night I realize the last thing I want to do is think about what to eat so it’s back to meal plans.
Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!!
