Unpacking and Squirrely
So we pulled off the big mother of a move over the weekend, and let's just say there is LOTS left to do. I am just slowly picking away and unpacking stuff...the place is a touch chaotic and messier than I like it at the moment. There is a cute little 2 bedroom apartment under here,somewhere.
It's so crazy how much one can accumulate over the years. I thought I threw a lot of stuff out, but man oh man, its never-ending. I have discovered that I am a major collector of scarves,picture frames,weird dolls and knick knacks up the ying yang. Oh,and the books..did I mention the books?!? My husbs and I are major book collectors, he collects mainly art books and comics and I collect books on pretty much any subject-ranging from books about cats and animals in general,books on photography and art,shite loads of fiction,graphic novels and a big favorite for me are vintage children's books. We need to purchase more book shelves in a hurry!!!!!
We also need a few other essentials- a couch (we left ours behind),a dresser,a desk and mostly bigger stuff that wasn't too special that we just didn't want to lug.
Do you guys have a lot of stuff?? I envy people that are minimalists. I am by no means a hoarder, but I do like to collect certain things and wow, it really adds up.
Our kitties did great on the 15 hour trip,I was probably more worried about them than I needed to be. They handled it like kitty pros.
On another little topic, where we moved is Ottawa,Ontario -Canada. It is beautiful. There are huge trees all over the place and everywhere you look you see squirrels and not just regular squirrels but BIG Black Squirrels. I have never even seen one in my life before I moved here...I'm used to the little ginger squirrels. They are such happy creatures, they just frolick about everywhere, They remind me of squirrels from Disney cartoons. Anyhoo,sorry my crazy blabbage...here's a few cutie pies...
*** Just found out that near Ottawa's Parliament Buildings downtown, there is a cat sanctuary! There are a bunch of little buildings built for the cats and they are fed everyday...the black squirrels can be found munching away on the food set out for the cats...hopefully they get along okay. I will have to go take a peek soon!
