Back from Sabbatical

Wow, 5 months!! I never expected that I'd go 5 whole months without blogging. But I'm hopeful that life will settle down since...we've moved to our new apartment.
Well, that's not all that we've been up to for the past 5 months, but it definitely felt all-consuming.

At first, I really hated leaving our old place. When we moved in 5 years ago, I knew then that it was probably the nicest place we'll ever live.
But this new place is turning out to be pretty damn nice now that we're settling in.

We moved 2 1/2 weeks ago, and all of the boxes are unpacked, but we still have quite a bit of things to put away.

It's not a fancy, modern high rise in downtown like our old place. We're only 3-4 blocks away but the neighborhood feels totally different. And we have an incredible view.
There's so much going on outside our windows.

We watch cargo and oil tanker ships come and go continuously.

We found a cool website that shows the location of any large ships and all kinds of information on each of them.

Our skies are constantly busy with helicopters, sea planes, seagulls, pigeons, crows and even...
Hawks!!!
There's at least 2 of them out there, and both of them have landed on our patio, welcoming us to the neighborhood.
Or wondering if we have any tasty small pets as an offering for them.

Yay, you're back. You have to take a break from unpacking those boxes.

So glad that you are back to blogging. Why did you decide to move? Rent went up? Moving nearer work? I love the view. I hope you have room for me to come and visit, I could sit and look at that view all day! Love the hawk too. Maybe a hawks nest next spring?
