NEW APARTMENT and FRIG MAGNETS I CAN ACTUALLY SEE!!!

August 29th –

We get to MOVE into our new apartment tomorrow!!! I’m very excited.  It has an OVEN and a regular refrigerator.  It also will have decent WIFI and that is why we are actually moving.   It will be strange to have a real kitchen, however.  It is bigger and also less expensive than the apartment we’re in now that is 33 sq meters.   I’ll post pictures soon to show you the new place, when we’re moved in.  It’s very exciting to do this.  It’s also walking distance to the city center and port – infact closer than where we are now – and not entirely a horrendous steep walk like the one we’ve had the past year.  Although, very cardiovascular exercise -.  Yeah.   My knees say “Hooray” –

August 30th

We are IN !!!!   The apartment is beautiful, spacious, large windows and sliding glass doors AND a real, a R E A L kitchen with an oven!  My refrigerator has magnets on it that I can actually SEE because it’s a normal size frig and I don’t have to stoop way over every time I go to put something in, or get something out.   I don’t have to sit on a small stool and scrape ice from the mini freezer that has frozen over and layered  more ice on the top and bottom &  that takes up more space than the few frozen items it contains!   There is a really big TV, and it doesn’t shut off in the middle of our French movie.  It doesn’t make clicking sounds either every time it’s on, telling us, ” sorry folks, this old TV is on the way to TV demise.”   Our bathroom has a TUB !!!!!  We can SOAK!!!  It has a 30’s feel – the entire apartment as the proprietor has decorated it in this fashion.

PLUS…….I have my own “devotional room”  (see below the cute little French “shabby chic” room……..)

The voile curtains glide back and forth graciously in the mediterranean breeze.    There is a glimpse of the sea, but basically the cicadas are in their glory, the fir trees and olive trees wrap around our balcony, the sky is bright blue.   Life is good.

WHAT the heck is "F" - oh yeah - FROID  = cold

WHAT the heck is “F” – oh yeah – FROID = cold

The morning after - fresh OJ

HEATED TOWEL RACK!!!

We are very very grateful to be in a place more spacious and conducive to cooking.   We probably will eat out a lot less, and I can cook to my hearts desire, like I love to do.

We can have PEOPLE over!!!  They can actually spend the night without us all being squished together!!!

 

Life is just really good.

    Looks like there is plenty of room for the B.U.B.’s.  How much longer are you going to be there? Looks inviting!!!!
