new apartment

October 30, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

We’re not going to start househunting until our California house has sold, so in the meantime we’ve moved into an apartment. We have a nice two bedroom on the third floor. After so many years of living in in Silicon Valley with its subtle seasonal changes, it’s breathtaking to arrive in Portland at the height of the fall foliage season.


Our apartment’s living room is very cosy, with a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has a great breakfast nook which we love, with its big windows’ views.

Cool rainy weather comes sooner to Oregon than California, so right from the start it was “sweaters and evenings with a fire” weather. What’s especially nice for me is working from home, so I don’t need to commute to work and I get to have lunch with Nancy every day :-)

Willow quickly made herself queen of the new place, and especially enjoys sleeping on the sills of our southwest-facing windows.
