A Different View

The feeling was psychic, passing through, electric
My palm against your fingers, pressing needles through my wrist
Hearts meet, though we didn't speak of those things
Falling, falling without knowing

Light as feather, lifting up together
But a heavy ache and focus blames circles in our heads
Eyes meet, though we didn't see what would be
Falling, falling without knowing

-"Falling Without Knowing", Tilly and the Wall

Sitting in my new home, glancing at the balcony to my side. I have my desk all set up in my bedroom upstairs, ready and set to start writing. I wrote a sketch of a poem this week. I have some work to do on it, but it is one small step.

Updates

*Painting can take a long time to do. We completed the bedroom and living room "on time" and didn't die of exhaustion when we had to move the next day. We chose two different colors than we expected, a dark blue for the bedroom and a light (almost baby blue) for the living room. Both look amazing, but still have some touch-ups to do.

*Most of the unpacking is completed. Just waiting for our new bed frame and then we can arrange the bedroom and hang up pictures. My desk will remain, and the view. We will do some cleaning at our apartment, and I will be relieved when we finally don't have to look back.

*It snowed. Not too unexpected here in North Dakota. Here we plan our Halloween costumes around snow suits. Some trees seemed to freak out and dropped their leaves overnight, which was a fun sight to see.

*We love our new home and I think it will really help move me forward into my goals in my life. Our neighborhood was just one of 10 Great Neighborhoods in America by the American Planning Association. Not too shabby, eh?

Things to share

I really wish that I could have better blog entries at this time, but I thought I would post some fun things until I can get my act together.

*Check out the latest blog at Comic of Revelation. Tomorrow will have an adorable video you shouldn't miss! If you haven't read the first issue of the comic, why now? Get started!

*I really liked the wedding episode of The Office. *spoilers* At the beginning of the episode, I had an idea what would happen and I was totally right. How did I know? I did it. My husband and I wanted to get married on January 2nd, but it fell on a Monday. We had a lot of discussion and decided to marry on that day, and then do the big she-bang on January 7th, the following Saturday. So, with this group of guests, it was obvious they would marry before the ceremony. The same thing happened to Marshall and Lily on How I Met Your Mother. Seriously, do the cutest couples have alike minds? Guess so! I just know that I wanted that perfect moment, and when that second wedding came along, it didn't matter. We were married and it was wonderful. One last fun thing to say about it is I will be wearing a shorter version of the bridesmaid dress in dark brown next weekend.

*I made my first batch of miso soup today and we loved it. I nabbed the recipe from 101 Cookbooks. I totally recommend this website. It has great vegetarian and vegan recipes. The pictures are also amazing!
