And now a picture of cool trees.

The post my mom has been waiting for

Photos of our apartment! And Ida.  She tends to follow me everywhere and finds her way in to most pictures.  It's taken me a while to get around to taking pictures, mostly because we didn't have any stuff when we moved in.  And pictures without stuff are BORING.

Cozy in the couch

Our building kind of reminds me of a hotel.  At first I wasn't sure if I would like that or not.  But it's really nothing like a hotel (except we do have a pool and free cable).
The courtyard area right outside our door.  It's got a couple tables, lots of chairs and a couple grills.

 The grill-we-have-never-used-but-probably-should-soon

 The fence that separates our courtyard from the awesome grocery store next door.  

 The neighbors kitty that Ida likes to bother.

Our apartment is basically and open area of the kitchen and living room separated by a breakfast bar.  This is the view from the kitchen of our living room and awesome reclining couch.

Ida's bed in front of the window.

My sewing corner (although right now it's set up more as my work-from-home corner)


 I need to make some curtains.

 The dresser we pulled out of the trash.  It's clearly nothing special and covered in the remains of sticker adhesive but it's functional.

 My super awesome HUGE closet

Goodbye September

Failed apartment hunting, sick dog, head cold, campus "shooting".  September was the pits.  Luckily it's now October and all I can think about is the changing of the seasons and how much I love Autumn.  But apparently there have been no signs that the leaves will be changing colors anytime soon or the the temperature will be any less than 90.  I miss Illinois fall.

There is a daycare attached to the Social Work building and the window above my desk looks out onto the playground.  It's nice to hear kids laughing and playing, but I'm slowly being driven insane.  In order to get the kids inside, the childcare worker sings a song.  I hear this song at least 5 times a day. Every day. Guaranteed. 

Walking, Walking (sung to Frere Jacque)

Walking, walking
Walking, walking
Yes we are, yes we are
Everybody's walking, everybody's walking
Now we stop, now we stop
