This year I'm making an effort to do, and try new things; pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Last month I started making phone calls to set up appointments to look at houses. Normally Brewier does all of this because I do not talk on the phone. Text, video chat, instant message, not a problem; the phone, I hate. Except now, I don't hate it so much, and can actually converse with strangers. Yesterday I went walking around downtown by myself, and I enjoyed it. For a long time I'd only go out if someone were with me, mainly because of my asthma and allergic reaction issues, but now that I'm healthier, (and the fragranced tourists aren't here,) I can go out by myself...alot of my idiosyncrasies are due to chemicals and fragrances; they are neurotoxins after all.
Yesterday I took Oliver out on his big wheel. We live at the top of a hill and he likes to FLY down the sidewalk. laughing all the way. I don't need to tell you who gets to carry the big wheel all the way home.
Hot chocolate after the ride.
This morning we went to Sunny Point Cafe for breakfast. I love eating in Asheville. Local pastured eggs, local made sausage, homemade biscuits from scratch. Yum. Yes, I can even sit in the restraunt, because its full of fragrance free locals.
After breakfast we walked around downtown in the 20 degree weather. The yarn shop in the Grove Arcade had a wall full of crazy hats, and a display of beautiful buttons. You can't tell from the picture, but some of theses buttons are 3 inches in diameter!
The rest of my day was devoted to packing and fruitless house hunting. Hmph!
