Settling In

I must say, it is nice having the house almost completely unpacked. We still need a few more bookshelves and storage pieces for our books and media, but for now the house is totally functional (let’s pretend the spare room isn’t in the picture). 
Not working is a little strange, but I do keep my days surprisingly busy. Between cooking every meal, cleaning, and exploring the new town, there isn’t a whole lot of time for much else. That isn’t to say that I don’t have time to lounge in the living room to this:

I’m also getting used to my new MacBook Pro and reading up on the local outdoor opportunities. I’ve already scoped out the nearest REI (sorry, Backwoods) and gauged the best local hikes per season. Looks like we won’t be outdoors outside of the metro until May. 
With time aplenty, I’ve been able to cook breakfast, pack lunch and prepare dinner for both of us every day. On the menu today is a pizza on homemade dough with pesto, spinach and goat cheese. I prepped it earlier today so he and I can go running right after he’s done at work. After hitting the pavement, all I have to do is pop it in the oven. 
Ah, I love foresight. 

Did I mention that we’re going to a military ball this Friday? I went shopping at the Tacoma mall earlier this week and scored a classy little outfit. I really have no idea as to whether or not I’ll be underdressed, but there will be an open bar…which means it will only matter for like thirty minutes. 

 Well it’s the end of another business day in which I was not a cog in the wheel. Tanning, grocery shopping and library going is still a contribution; right?
Happy Wednesday!

    Awesome! I love the photos of the pizza…yum! It looks like house wifery is treating you well. 🙂 Btw, be sure to hit up the drink bar early. They normally have a price cap & close before the ball is over.
