it’s been six months since we moved from gothenburg to greensboro. time flies, as always. even if it doesn’t always feel like it (especially between the hours of eight am and five pm, monday through friday…). i think that’s so scary how fast the time goes as an adult…
it’s been a lot of ups and downs in these six months. we bid on several houses (and almost closed on one even, but in the end we decided against it for a handful of reasons mostly to do with issues with the house and a few otherwise). we got a dog for a very short time who i really miss even if it was right to let him go (he’s in a better place now.. not dead like it sounds in that phrasing, mind you).
we’ve hated it here and loved it here. the longer we’ve been here, the more and more we have come to like it. which surprised me to some extent. i guess we as humans adapt and get used to things. but there are definitely things we love here. it’s been so much fun living close to the family. we can have a spontaneous dinner after work with my parents, which is wonderful.
and we’ve found some trails in the area with beautiful nature. greensboro loves highways and pavement, but there are some pockets that have really stunning nature.
work has not been the most inspiring. i’m now nine years into this career. it’s taken me places i never thought i’d see and those places and people i met changed and molded me. the working hours themselves aren’t the most rewarding personally and that’s something that’s been building over the years. some recent business trip photos:
summer is here now. well technically it may be spring but it’s for sure summer temperatures (30 C / 90 F). it’s great to wear shorts 😎 here’s a photo of our balcony with some nice plants. it’s from our apartment which otherwise isn’t very decorated, though more and more it is just by nature of acquiring things here and there.
otherwise, i’ve got a new sewing machine that’s so quiet and wonderful! we’re working on a joint project to make a pineapple quilt (s little ambition to eventually have a tropical inspired home decor).
that’s all for now! hopefully i’ll post another update sooner. so many things going on to write about!
