We’ve been busy! A few weekends ago we decided to get dirty and do some planting. We bought the big bag of soil below for about $8. We had a number of empty planters and used some of the local soil and stones in the bottom of the pots. Then we planted a wide variety of plants. Mint, cilantro, basil, peppers… Some of those are quite available but we just love having things growing around us so it was about time that we started planting. We hope to be able to grow all year since the coolest weather here will still be quite a bit warmer than the hottest in Alaska and there isn’t much change in the daylight during the seasons.
Then on the following Tuesday, I took a little bit of personal time off of work so that I could receive our shipment. It took the moving crew less than an hour to unload all of the boxes and furniture into our house. We had three piles of dozens of boxes because we combined our shipment with two others.
Our collection was nearly 70 boxes, crates, and wrapped furniture. We spent the next few days unpacking and trying to get the house set up. Nearly two weeks later the room that we stacked everything in still has items strewn about.
It is great to have our things filling this house though. Now, with our art, furniture and other items around us we really feel at home.
