Our New Home

Here's a picture of our balcony, which was a selling point for me, and our green bins, which will become planters after the winter. Actually, one of them already has some peppers and herbs growing in it. The peppers are doing great, but my basil has become a snack for something, maybe a squirrel.

The whole complex has sort of an alpine feel, with the tall tall pine trees and the architecture which is reminiscent of some kind of Swiss chalet. I think.

And this is what we're driving. After four years without a vehicle, it's been a bit of a challenge getting back behind the seat. But I think I've finally gotten the hang of it again.

And the last "New" thing I want to show you is:

This is Chloe, our beautiful female white-faced lutino cockatiel. She is by far the best bird we've ever had. She is so well-behaved and affectionate. And since she's a female, there's no rooster tendencies.

Life is good.

Nice! I was waiting for you to post pictures :) My husband will retire next month. Hopefully next year we will move someplace south. I wanted Florida but he is thinking more like Tenn. N.Carolina, Georgia.Since you did all the apartment shopping already what price range about are the rents in Tenn. ?

Love your bird! So cute! We still haven't got us anything yet. Wondering if we can properly take care of birds... not too keen on them flying around the house or squawking...
