Life Update + Giveaway Winner

We moved! For the first time ever in my life, we’ll be living in a house. So far, I’ve lived in six different apartments, so it’s exciting to have a little house. It’s so nice to have a little garden where we’ll be able to set up a vegetable patch, grow some flowers and add a birth bath and feeder. It’s also amazing to be able to have breakfast outside. It’s so peaceful and relaxing, it’s the perfect way to start the day. I feel really lucky to have this new space to play with and enjoy.

I’m a sad cat, living in a sad box. She stayed in that box the entire time we were packing up.

 

The move is even more exciting because we left the city! That’s right, we are not in Montreal anymore, but in a small, small town. Everything is so cute and unfamiliar. It’s a great feeling to have new places to discover; it’s like a holiday. Plus, our new home is set in the most wonderful place if you like being outside: bike and hiking trails are just around the corner, and we have a ski station literally in our backyard. It’s really nice because when we go outside, we can see people running, biking or just walking around. It’s such a nice quiet small town. The feel is so different from the big city, but I think I’ll get used to it pretty easily. That is if I don’t break down from unpacking everything! I’m so tired of lifting and moving boxes around. The temperatures are really not helping: it’s so hot and humid, even just sitting down seems like an effort.

Why are you doing this to me? In a far away kingdom, lived a cat that spent its time perched on the highest of all boxes…

 

Our cat is going crazy! She is exploring every little nook and cranny and wondering what she’s doing there. She’s also quite excited to see all the birds and insects that are going back and forth in the yard. She’s not too happy to see the boxes disappear, but we truly are!

Okay, life not’s so bad here!

 

Speaking of boxes, I’m happy to announce that Melissa from Working Mom Musings  is the winner of the Manitoba’s Harvest Hemp Hearts! I hope you enjoy your prize! Thank you all for participating and giving me and others such wonderful ideas as to how to use hemp hearts. I’m currently working on other giveaways, so keep your eyes open!

    Glad the move went well! We just moved into a house this summer too, with family/roommates but we love it. Just bummed we moved in summer and not in spring. We can only do so much with the yard when it gets 100+ degrees by 11am. But, glad you have a cute little house now!

      Agreed! I wish we could set up our vegetable patch this year, but except for preparation, there is not many fun things we can do in the yard. It’s so nice though! For the first time ever, I can use my mixer any time I want without concern for the noise! Total freedom! 🙂

      Poor little thing is just starting to get back to being herself! Strangely enough, our goldfish seems to be even more shaken by the move. Who would have thought!
