So, I’ve been living back in Olney for less than a week but it really has felt like coming home rather than moving somewhere new. Even after 8 years of absence it really is just comfortable.
Living with morrison-in-mono is easy & enjoyable. Its been so great to cook dinner every night & relax together. I’ve yet to have a mental breakdown in the grocery store, but I’m keeping my cool and laughing at the lack of selection so far.
We are staying in his apartment right now until the house closes next month. I finally got to see it this week & I’m really excited to move (again!). At least I’ll just be moving down the block this time. The yard is lovely & I expect many leisurely evenings spent out there this summer.
It seems like I have a few event planning jobs on the horizon already so I’m optimistic about that business. However, I’m still planning on getting a part time job while working towards the ultimate goal of opening a restaurant.
The farmer’s market begins this weekend. I was able to help my mom get prepared for the first market this week. It was nice to work in the yard with her, potting up plants & chatting. It will be good to have family close by once again. I haven’t gotten much of my own stuff ready for market yet. This week has been a whirlwind. Looking forward to having jams & pickles & other artisan items for upcoming markets soon.
The weather has been gorgeous. Chilly for early May in Southeastern IL but sunny & the birds are chirping. I’ve missed nature. I honestly feel more whole already. Seeing the stars, walking barefoot, sitting in the grass. Don’t get me wrong, I love Chicago. I miss things about it already.
