First impressions of my new home:
- The rain really is as persistent as everyone said. Sorry if I rolled me eyes at you. I feel fairly certain my eyes and the rolling are some sort of affliction.
- We live on the opposite side of the block as Top Pot. I haven’t eaten a doughnut yet, but the air smells like fried deliciousness and cinnamon/sugar for a full two block radius. It’s phenomenal.
- Our apartment has quite the sterile-hotel vibe happening. It is corporately furnished, and I am grateful that it isn’t gaudy. It does sport no less than three photographs of landscapes, but thankfully they don’t have positive affirmations printed on them. I am not sure how much to delve into personalizing. We probably won’t be here longer than a year.
- Wally, my weird little sun baby pup, is sinking into a depression. He jumps back into bed after our morning walk and buries himself. It is so pitiful, I don’t even know what to do.
I think I am going to love it here. The trees, the waterfront. I also think it will take some adjusting. How do you walk your dogs in the rain everyday and keep them pleasant as well as the apartment? I also need to figure out public transportation and other practical details. I am still looking for Seattle advice, so bring it! xo
