DITL 8.30.15

A day spent in the car, in the company of coworkers and in settling in.

Waking up in a new place. I moved in last weekend but it's not quite home yet. I'm living out in the boonies of the Cape (Wellfleet) now. But why am I awake?

DSC00566

Oh. Right. After our health scare last month, this fellow suddenly has pep again and demands early morning wake ups. Jerk.

DSC00573

A quick step outside to do his business.

DSC00581

I retreat back to bed for a few minutes, but alas, I have a busy day ahead. First things first.

DSC00586

Walk the dog through the new neighborhood. Summer in Wellfleet means I can't cross any main roads without being flattened, so we do the world's quickest walk through the back roads I live on. He's happy, anyway.

DSC00588

The house is a cottage, a cabin, a POSTAGE STAMP. Cute, though. Like living in a hotel suite. Also, a bit of a mess.

DSC00589

Music ON. Passion Pit mix and go.

DSC00590

Bed made

DSC00594

Dishes done! (I have almost no dishes. New house tricks :/)

DSC00595

Minor household repair, done! The knob on the shower broke (it was old and brittle) and while I could have asked the landlords to fix it I knew it would be quicker to go and do it myself.

DSC00596

Can't wait to give the house a good deep cleaning, especially the limescale on that showerhead. Hard water.

DSC00591

Thinking about what art I want to hang wear. I'm only doing a couple of pieces at a time so I make sure things are where I like them.

DSC00592

Not sure, but it'll do for now.

DSC00593

Beauregard finds his place though. He gets spot of honor under my monitor. Two years ago, my sister in law got mad when I wouldn't tell her what I might want for Christmas: "You'll end up with a LIZARD," she said. "Great, I'll name him Beauregard and love and adore him," I said.

DSC00597

While I clean, my landlord puts a new screen door on. Whoo! I can finally leave the front door open!

DSC00600

Time to head out. I'm going to a BBQ in Falmouth, which I agreed to before I moved. Driving towards the bridges on a Sunday, ugh. 1hr30 minutes. FINE.

DSC00601

Stop at Whole Foods for a present/food. I can't cook in the new place yet so I have to bring premade food.

Here we are! Baxter was invited along and promptly makes friends.

IMG_0208

Are you taking a picture of his ass!

IMG_0215

85 degrees and humid and we still can't resist the fire pit.

IMG_0214

Watermelon's got a Tim Burton smile.

DSC00606

Let's go home, now. Sun is setting over the airfield in...Mashpee, I guess?

DSC00608

Didn't eat a lot at the BBQ (tough to not like seafood when you live on the cape, stuffed quahogs are the centerpiece) so I cook up some frozen pizza. Which is a mistake, as I DO NOT HAVE A KNIFE TO CUT IT WITH. I eat it like a heathen. No pictures.

DSC00610

Pour a glass of wine. Into my only glass. Classy all the way.

DSC00612

Read some more Seed Collectors by Scarlett Thomas. Special ordered this from the UK. So good, so SO good. I love her, she's my favorite modern writer hands down.

DSC00562

Don't have internet yet, which is nice and yet difficult, so I have to rely on things that I had pre downloaded. Start rewatching Black Books (my favorite Graham Linehan. IT Crowd is amazing, Father Ted absurd and awesome, but Black Books.) "THE LITTLE BOOK OF CALM. DO YOU HAVE IT."

And thus to sleep!
