Hi friends, how are you? I've missed you. I haven't decided if I'm going to start blogging regularly again, but I thought I'd do a few posts on what I've been up to. I've been unplugging quite a bit, and it feels great. I'll talk a little about the way I am using social media in a subsequent post.
The big news is that I moved. Yep it's true. And another big move is on the horizon, I think. Living very simply and taking things day by day. I want to move somewhere with legalized weed and lots of rain. Like Seattle or Portland.
I moved to a sweet little beach cottage. It's been quite an adjustment. I've lived in an apartment most of my life. And I was surprised how much I missed my apartment (not the hood), when I moved. My cottage is a small one story ranch. No basement -- yay! basements creep me out, I'm traumatized by the horror movies I was forced to watch as a child -- and no attic. It's not much bigger than my apartment at around 650 square feet.
One of the things I miss is being on a higher floor. I never had to turn on my heat, and I could keep windows open all the time. I love fresh air and love sleeping by a window. I miss my balcony, and my tree. I love feeling like I am in a tree house.
I had a rocky start when I decided to move. I moved half my stuff and the deal fell through. I was so beside myself when I had to move the crap back, I almost put it all in the garbage. Things worked out for the best in the long run. Typical mercury retrograde stuff. Fortunately, I believe in travelling light. I did almost the whole move by myself, in my little station wagon. God, I love that car.
Here's the last few pics I took at my apartment. My ever changing living room. I sold that coffee table and now I regret it! Oval coffee tables are hard to find. Not only was the piece gorgeous, it was so functional. I'm watching the Goodwill and yard sales for one like it. Like I said, I miss my friend the tree. I used to sit on the sofa and watch the squirrels and birds play in it. I also loved to watch its seasonal changes. Oh well, there's lots of amazing fauna here, which I'll be sure to tell you about.
I hope you will follow along as I tell my story of setting up home in this sweet little beach cottage. You can also follow along on instagram @margiemax. I did this post on my Android! I'll have more to say about that in my upcoming post on social media.
Thanks for reading!
