Settling in at Yukon Street

It's hard to believe how long it is taking for us to settle in.  But I think I'm remembering moves when I was a young woman and didn't have so much stuff.  Just now,  ten days after our move I'm starting to feel settled here.  The kitchen is functional ...

and my desk and computer are temporarily set up in the alcove (also known as the guest room, the art room, and Harry's dressing room).  Taking that wall down was the best thing we ever did!

Geordie is getting used to his new neighbourhood and so are we.  It's a very different vibe than our suburban home.  Surprisingly it's actually quieter though as we're on a cul-de-sac and there's not much vehicle traffic except when there's a shift change at the old folks home next door.  Across from us is a little park where the moms from the family housing apartment across the street take their little ones to play.

Here are a few more images of our new location.  It has the feeling to me of a European apartment, but it's right here in Victoria.

Today we get the proceeds from our sale and this is the payoff for all our work over the past year.  We now can eliminate our line of credit from the renovation and make some travel plans.


  1. Congratulations! It has been fun watching your progress and maybe Maggie timed her "move" well also.

    1. You know Ches and Allison I think you're right about Maggie. It would have been a touch move for her.
