I'm here!!!

I'm here...we moved out, we moved on, we drove 13 hours and moved into our 10th floor condo (temporary until September 3) It's 900 sq ft, as opposed to my 3 story home, and I'm experiencing culture shock, noise shock, apartment living shock, dog in a condo living shock, kids going squirrelly within 1 hour shock, kids bickering all the time shock, grocery shopping and limiting to only 2 bags full because the mega security access and doors up to the tower from the parkade are too many to mention shock. It's all worth it though...another two weeks and I'll be moving into my new home.

And of course, there's no air conditioning. It's summer. There's road construction happening literally outside my window. did you know noise travels up?

But all in all, very happy to be home. Sushi restaurant in my lobby. Sushi everywhere. yum. Need to refrain.

We're taking full advantage of the major parks and recreation areas around us, and of course, the first few days we were here, we HAD to get a new library card, according to my son.

So, of course, that led me to realize that even though I have no access to a sewing machine for the next month, I do have access to 3 new libraries stocked with unread (by me) quilting magazines and books. Wahoo!
This is a great summer read, especially if you only have little snippets of time. I also got a whole bunch of art quilting books out to read through and figure out if that's something I want to branch into.

Hope you're having a great summer. I keep up with my blog reading, not alot of posting, but keeping up with what's going on. I'm looking very forward to the fall and settling in and getting started on some new projects.
