    I agree with Sabine. I read it to my husband and he said, "Shangri-la!" Sounds so wonderful. So glad you are settling in with the kittens and making progress. We just moved cross country with our dog and I understand the cleaning out and organizing process. It feels so good once it's done. Our dog was a little "off" for a little while, but did the same thing, needing reassurance we were there. We only left him for small amounts of time to start until he got used to the new place. Happy settling in! Big congrats on finding "new" pants to wear!

    You don't have to apologize or justify eating in the night, you know. If you need it, you need it. And you have a shifting schedule anyway, so it makes sense that your appetite could pick up at unusual times.

    Star-gazing from bed! Well, aren't you the spoiled one? I am suitably jealous. But it does make me wonder about how well insulated the roof is going to be for winter. No attic then?

    Actually there is a small attic as the roof is steeply peaked. So the very center is attic, the part over the central stairway. But no worries, it is wonderfully insulated - the entire place. The skylights are triple-glazed, as are the windows. The roof is super-insulated and has a metal roof so the snow will slide off - otherwise it would not melt and would end up weighing a great deal and doing damage. And it has a new and efficient propane furnace. AND I get the same price as my landlord because it is the same delivery site - and he buys a lot of propane, so it is the very cheapest. (For some reason propane is cheaper the more of it you buy.)

    Spent all afternoon at the old place, packing up the remainders, hauling stuff to the thrift shops, cleaning. Old landlord stopped by and spent an hour bending my ear. He does like to chat, but I wanted to put him to work instead of standing around talking. But I got the welcome news that I get a day of grace - I can finish up Sunday. So I can put in a couple of hours tomorrow morning and then still have Sunday if I need to. (I'm working Saturday night.) I should be able to finish tomorrow, but it is nice to not have to be under the gun. After he left I got a burst of energy and got a lot more done than I thought. Emptied out the refrigerator and discarded the last of the non-primal food. My fridge here is smaller, it is packed! I am welcoming a more simple diet, though. Simplifying everything! Then I will have more time to stargaze, or at least I will be able to lie in bed and gaze at the stars with less worries.

    It is so beautiful here. The birds sing all the time, thrushes with their lovely songs. Very little traffic. Sometimes I can hear boats.

    I do hope it is clear tonight.

    Very hungry but very tired. Had some swiss cheese and strawberries. I have eaten so many berries over the last few days that I am surprised I haven't turned into one. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries. Love them all.

    Slept like a rock again. The cats seem to have totally accepted their new home. Funny how that transformation takes place. This morning they jumped on me like they always do and ate heartily of their Fancy Feast. Then a wash and now lying in the window watching birds. Back to normal.

    No stars last night, but the moon shone on me while I was sleeping. Very primal, don't you think?

    Not hungry.

    Whew! Got the final clean-up done at the old digs and left for the last time. Well, probably one more time - need to do a final walk-through and get my deposit back. Very important, that!

    Going to work tonight and to be honest it is relief to get away from here for awhile and do something completely different. Even though I have weeks of work ahead, sorting out stuff, giving away stuff, throwing out stuff, organizing stuff, at work I won't have to think about anything like that.

    Slept a bit and woke up pretty happy. It is really different unpacking when I am in a place I really like and plan to stay. The other house never felt like home for a lot of reasons. Boring reasons, so I won't get into them. But this place felt like home right from the start. I am turning my knickknack cabinet into a kitchen cabinet! Much more practical. The kitties are settling in. This place is much hotter than my old place (that is good). Even though a few days will be a bit uncomfortable, the cooler days will more than make up for it, especially when I am paying my lowered heating bill.

    I had some mystery beef stew for dinner. I just put everything that had been in the freezer into the refrigerator and I'm just going to open up the things, heat 'em up, and eat or not eat. The beef stew was really good, too bad I have no idea how I made it. All the frozen stuff was cooked from scratch by yours truly, so it is not nearly as adventurous as I'm making it sound. Also some strawberries, and then I had a fried egg because I dropped the eggs and one cracked and I couldn't stand to waste it. Actually the fried egg IN the beef stew would have been good.

    Here I am at work. I'm blowing off journaling my food today. I haven't put in anything in yet and it is too hard to think back. Haven't really eaten that much though. I'm thinking of having coconut cream with raspberries. I am so disappointed, I went to the food co-op and they didn't have any kefir. Well, they have commercial stuff, but not the handmade raw stuff from the lady with six cows. Maybe this is the time to go strict paleo and see what happens; for me that mostly means giving up dairy. I have had a few minor breakouts, this is the sweaty time of the year! But I should eliminate dairy, see what happens to my skin, and then carefully add it back in. Possibly I can eat the fermented products but milk has to go.

    I need to find a man. I really someone to do things with. I had horrible luck on plentyoffish. I had to block at least 20 guys. Asking for naked pics and so forth. And then getting really angry when I said no. Weirdos. I had a friend look at my profile to figure out why anyone would think these inquiries were welcome, but we never figured it out. But two other women I know found great guys there! I need help with this. Obviously I am not good at it.

    Are there any of those 'singles events' firms in your area? Where they set up activities for you to do/go to and everyone who is there is single? That way you meet people as you are doing things you enjoy? Museums, rodeos, hang-gliding, hiking, making cheese, concerts, wine-tasting, volley-ball and barbecue, all kinds of stuff! I know when I have heard their ads, I've thought, 'those things sound like fun!' but since I'm married...
