I was away last week with all the mail drama, and I heard back that the letters got returned! I wonder if they were missing the apartment information? I'm def leaving feedback that postal mail is just so old school and inefficient! (Were the letters nice at least, pretty paper and all that? Somehow I doubt it.)

I got back this afternoon and I already seriously miss the mountain chalet. Yeah it was hot in the afternoon with the west-facing windows and getting direct sun for several hours because the sun doesn't set until well after 9pm, but it was quiet and the most direct neighbours were the swallows that lived in the roof and no one smoked anywhere near my windows and it was GREAT.

I didn't get much sewing done. I did take off my shift sleeves, shorten and narrow them, and reattach them, all by hand. I elected not to do any other handsewing and instead spent like 4 full days just knitting. It was great. And in some ways it was easier to feed myself? We had limited options cuz we were 2km up a mountain, but we had to PLAN and that made all the difference. Here I have some egg salad my cat sitter made and a bunch of options that require prep and I just can't be bothered. Ah well.

But I am excited to sleep in my own bed tonight, and my cat has generally forgiven me for abandoning him (in good care but try to convince a cat of that!). Just counting down the days until I don't need to share walls...
