Apartment Found!

I went to the Apartment Open House.

It was a beautiful crisp sunny day.

A two bedroom basement apartment.

It has low ceilings.

Not many cupboards (though the ones they do have are cute)

Two small closets.

Half size windows.

But the sun in the afternoon shone into the apartment.

There was light there.

And two rooms plus a long big room

and a kitchen and bathroom.

Price: just over half of what I would of been paying here.

Hello New Home to Cleo, Me and My furniture!

Hello place to be lighted with candles

and lamps.

Hello, new place I hope to pray in

put icons in

and seek God.

It has a mocha brown paint job with white trim.
I will miss my green walls.
I will miss my view, my balcony.
I hope my new neighbours will be good.
Um, the fire station is near by.
So that may be a bit loud.
But.
I can walk to church in 15 minutes,
grocery store in about 25 minutes,
buses nearby.
And I am going to make it cute and am already
planning on trying to find some furniture
to make up for the diminished cupboard space...
It is not a perfect place; some infestation issues;
they had a crazy tenant, who is no longer there.
But it felt good to myself and the friends with me,
and the friends with me have good heads on their shoulders.
I took it for November and will have time to clean
prepare and move in slowly.
Thank God for His mercy.
Thank you for your prayers!

Elizabeth, I am just picking my jaw up from the floor !

I started praying the Akathist to St Xenia this weekend, asking her help for you to find a new home quickly :-)

All our prayers have been answered, Glory to God !

Juliana said what I thought :) 15 minute walk to church? that is perfect. It is soooooo wonderful to go to church without worrying about time and transport. oh, I am so glad, especially after your last post about less than nice areas.
