I've settled in to this sweet little cottage behind a family's home! The place is the perfect size and makes me want to hibernate all winter instead of explore the island I just moved on to. The family has been so accommodating and provided me with furniture and amenities from their home, and the first day I got here they even left fresh eggs (from their chickens??) on my doorstep! They offered me space in their raised beds and it's fun passing their greenhouse of heirloom tomatoes to get into my place. Rowan is constantly purring and has begun her first exploration of the outdoors (she's pretty afraid of the chickens though). It's still incredibly surreal that I live on an island on the other side of the continent, but this has been the perfect place to comfort me when I'm feeling so far from anything familiar.
