While it is true, that I am smaller than I was 8 years ago that isn't what I mean! We have been in Florida since mid December and loving every minute. One of the things that we love is living in a smaller space. This house is about half the size of our home in NY and it is just so livable!
When I cook everything is within an arm's reach and putting things away from the dishwasher is a breeze! All of our books and magazines are in the LR within easy reach unlike in NY where they are in several rooms on three floors. And the fact that this house is on one floor is divine! My knees thank the lack of stairs every day!
With Covid our life shrank too. When we got to FL things were still pretty closed up even here. Masks were required, indoor dining wasn't recommended, and movies were either not open or we wouldn't have gone in any event. The days just flow and for the most part we pretty much stay local....walk Fletcher in the morning, walk to the fitness center to work out or take a long walk. Lunch at home, read out back or at the pool.....shop for dinner, take a leisurely walk after dinner & enjoy Netflix. My family is here so we get to see them and finally with everyone vaccinated we can get together inside.
So where does this leave me? On Thursday we head back to NY and I know we will immediately bond with our house once we get there. Things are better there and I suspect our days will look very much like they do here. Relaxed.
What a year and what changes it has brought. How are you all adapting now that things are looking brighter?
