It’s been a long month…
Haha, I shouldn’t have blogged about posting more frequently after all. I was wondering if that would end up jinxing it but at the time I’d felt confident I’d be able to churn out content as I had quite a few posts planned. Alas, I had indeed been overly optimistic. Given the stress of moving, Jacky injuring his foot shortly after (to the extent we headed to the ER with a follow up trip to urgent care) plus a busy period at work all at the same time, I’ve been way too overwhelmed to write.
We still don’t have a dining table and chairs or a proper sofa or living area rug or chairs and half of our previous furniture doesn’t really fit with the space, but we’re working on it. Slowly but surely, we’ll get there :)
On Saturday, we finally had a breather. Jacky had recovered enough to limp around without crutches and we planned to go for a nice stroll downtown followed by a trip to Costco after lunch. We didn’t do our usual family Bible Study in the morning as my parents were out, so we went out for sushi at one of our favourite local restaurants before heading downtown.
The weather had been simply perfect: warm and sunny with a cool breeze. After our walk, we decided to go to a rooftop bar and enjoy the beautiful day (also because it just happened to be perfectly situated between 5 PokéStops and 2 Gyms hahaha). I think it might be the first rooftop bar we’ve ever been to together and we were blessed with what was probably the best seats on the roof.
We had a large corner table that gave us some of the most stunning views in multiple directions. The sun was shining brightly but we were afforded shade from 2 umbrellas, and the drinks we got were exactly what we were looking for. I ordered us some sliders and fries to share as well because why not.
We were limited to 1.5hrs dining time but that was the perfect amount of time. By the time we left, it was already after 6pm and Costco was just not going to happen, but I’d been wanting to watch the new Black Widow movie for a while, and since we were right next to a cinema we figured why not. The timing was perfect: a showing in 10min, with comfy seats in the perfect seating location, on a huge screen.
I realised on our way home that I was expecting a grocery delivery, and for a moment was worried that the groceries may have spoiled from sitting outside in the heat. But it turns out they’d only been delivered shortly before we arrived home – so perfect. The rest of the evening was spent relaxing.
It was just… the perfect day. Honestly the perfect, restful, relaxing day; something I’d desperately needed and was so thankful for. Thanks be to God that everything just worked out so wonderfully. On another note: since moving in, I now love the walls and our new home. God is so good to us.
