What’s new, you ask?

I am back in Nelson, lovely Queen City of the Kootenays.  It’s impossible to describe how lovely this place is, so:



My sister and I are up here to visit our father, who celebrated our arrival by slipping on a wet bathroom floor and ending up in the hospital with a bruised foot and back.  Being 89 years old presents its own problems in the healing process, so it’s not likely he’ll be home before Sis and I have to head back to our other obligations. We visit him in the hospital and chat with the doctors and nurses and generally try to be good daughters.

But there is good news this week, and that is that DH and I have found a place to live during the build.  DH took on the task of combing Craigslist and Kajiji looking for suites in the area to rent.  We really wanted to move into our new neighbourhood so we could watch over the build process and also get used to our new stores and local amenities.  There aren’t any apartment buildings in the area for rent, just basement suites. Luckily. after a couple of false starts,  he found one just 10 blocks from our new home, in the basement of a large home.  It’s close to transit and shopping, and most importantly, close to the action as the build goes on.  The landlord didn’t ask us to sign a lease, so we will be renting month to month, ideal for us. It has 8 foot ceilings and is quite bright.  And it’s small, so we’ll get used to just keeping what we need.

Because I will be up at the hospital and away from the computer, I may not be posting at my usual manic rate.  But I’m still here.
