Moving is Awesome!

No, it is not.

So after a ton of bruises, one 26 foot long rental truck (thing was a monster to drive), and WHY DOES MY WIFE WANT TO LIVE ON THE THIRD FLOOR, aside, we are in our new place. Everything is still in boxes. Damn boxes I hate them. But it is getting sorted.

The good news is that the new kitchen is much larger. I have some serious counter space. No more kneading bread on the dining room table.

Picking up produce from the co-op tomorrow, and my beloved wife (I will eventually forgive her for the whole apartment on the third floor thing), did give me a lodge cast iron dutch oven for my birthday, right before the move. It is the model with the self basting lid. I am quite excited.

So expect recipes and joy soon. We just got the internet turned on today, so I'm still playing catch up.

Glad you got there, despite the bruises and 3rd floor! Enjoy your new kitchen!

Did I mention I have counter space? I have been so used to using the dining room table to knead bread dough and mix stuff. Plus peeling potatoes in the living room on our coffee table. I almost don't know what to do with all this space.

Oh, I have a feeling you'll find a use for it!

Moving sucks. Glad you survived. Now you need a bunch of appliances to fill up all that counter space.

Fox, I was wondering when you were going to check back in here! Glad to hear you and the Beloved are all moved in, despite boxes being everywhere. At least you're in your new home.

Agree with Dawg and Andy....you will definitely find things to fill up all that lovely new space!

Thanks for checking in.

I'm pretty sure we'll think of something.

I made an apple pie yesterday and I didn't even have to leave the kitchen!

Is it the top floor in your building? If so, the answer is "no one lives above her". Simple, if that is the case. Beloved Rachel is a woman after my own heart.

Enjoy all your new space. Eventually you'll start to think you need more space.

PS - I have some decent vanilla ice cream. We'll bring it over if you'll share your pie.

Yeah CG, it is the top floor. She doesn't like people walking around on top of her.

And she likes apple pie enough that I kind of have a weekly pie plan. Not that I don't also mix it up with pecan and walnut, blackberry and strawberry pies. I try to have a pie dough made most times. One needs the ability to make emergency pie after all, and quick.
