We've been in residence in Valparaiso for five weeks now. The boxes are all unpacked. Most everything has been put away. There needs to be some tweaking still. I've found my way around the grocery store of choice (thanks, Jane, for the locator map). How nice to find it has a sushi bar!! I still need to find my way to the State License Bureau to change my address. I need to register to vote.
One thing that I need to check off my list is causing me more of a problem than I thought it would. Getting a library card!! It's not that the card will be hard to get. All that's needed is a piece of mail showing my address. What it really means is tossing out my old library card. The library that I had the joy of being on the Board of Trustees that approved the building and watched it rise from the north end of the Crown Point downtown square. That card is on my "list". It may be the last thing to be crossed off.
Andrew and I have done a bit of exploring. Although we'd spent quite a bit of time in the area through the years, we always seemed to visit the same part of the city. Now, at our leisure, we are taking "the road less traveled". A few weeks ago, we came upon this gem of a nursery. Horses Nursery (Horse is the nickname of the owner and I don't know why they left the apostrophe out) is tucked into the countryside as one heads west on Lincolnway.
We picked up a hydrangea and a clematis. Next time, I might take some lemonade and a book. Those chairs were very inviting!
Hope you all have a great weekend!!
