we moved last saturday and are now surrounded by boxes, ugh. despite the boxes we are very happy to be in our new house! i’ve done a little cooking, but nothing really to write home about, if you know what i mean. i’m really excited to try cooking with our new outdoor fireplace/grill.
it’s hard to see in this photo, but off to the side of the fireplace is a metal grill. the hot air from the fire flows up to the grill and, in theory, you can cook on it. i’m hoping i get to try it out before the spring. it rains a lot here and that area isn’t covered. i’d love to have a hot dog and s’mores party sometime this winter. cross your fingers for a dry day or two!
one of the best features of our new place is the amazing deck and view. this is a shot of the sunrise i saw on our first morning. that’s mt. hood floating on a bed of fog there in the back. all of these photos were taken with my iphone and, with this one in particular, it doesn’t not do it justice. the colors were so much more vibrant in person. i still haven’t unpacked the cord for the other cameras, so for now you’re stuck with shots from the iphone.
