Happy 4th!

Greetings from the Ice Palace!
That’s what we’re calling our new apartment, because it’s FREEZING in here compared to our old place.
We’ve been in now for 6 days, and it’s awesome! Like night and day. It’s clean and new, light and airy, cool and open, and and and! There is a lot more open space here as far as the whole complex goes. The last place was older and wood, and the trees were so close it was a bit claustrophobic. I felt like I was in a cabin in the mountains.
We’ve been out walking around the complex after dinner, and it’s so nice to see everything neat and clean. There is a vine covered bridge over the lake that feels romantic, and some benches scattered around the lake inviting you to sit and rest. Anyway, it’s very nice to come home, and we just keep being amazed at how COOL it is in here!

Today is the 4th of July, my least favorite holiday. Not for the significance of the day, but for the moronic behavior people seem to exhibit when playing with fire. I like the big, professional shows where you go ooooh and ahhhh, but I now live in a state where fireworks are legal, and there are Fireworks Stores here open year round. So, you can imagine I am particularly happy that it is raining at the moment. (8:30 pm local time)
The Thunder storms here are a pretty cool thing. Another blog perhaps….

I am really happy to have the day off from BOTH jobs today, and actually slept in, went for a walk, took a nap, and am still in my jammies. 🙂 Life is good. Not to mention COLD.

Hope you all have a “safe and sane” 4th of July!
