What did we come back to? Cold weather; rain. Moving. Finals. The sad little piggy bank. The usual, I suppose. BUT, dangit, I've got a wicked tan, and a new ceramic mexican butter dish, so that means there is hope! Lots of it! That reminds me...to post a picture of the adorable little thing (the butter dish, I mean. Not me, ha!)
We move next Wednesday, so I'll be resituating myself and renesting in a new place, which I am actually very excited about. The kitchen is a smaller area, but get this, with granite countertops. And a full size stove! I'll make sure to post pictures as soon as I can.
The area we are moving to is in North Portland. I'm a little nervous about it, just like I was nervous living downtown at first. I hardly go across the river as it is, and to be living over there will be a new experience. I do really love the few neighborhoods I have visited - Mississippi (coffee at Fresh Pot & Albina Press down the street), Alberta Arts (Tin Shed breakfast), driving around admiring the houses in Alameda and near Mt. Tabor, E. Portland fry and milkshake cart I don't know where that was! Division?) etc. So I'll be getting to know the area much better soon. If anyone has any recommendations for places that we absolutely must visit, please tell me!
