I know – we haven’t been gone long enough to announce that “we’re back”, but we can announce that we are “back online”. When you live in a foreign country and your only access to family and friends is via the internet, well, a few days feels like weeks! It’s crazy how disconnected we feel without being able to send our daily little hellos to everyone.
Those sweet folks who follow our daily blog posts have emailed to ask where we have been. At least now we know that if we ever disappeared off the face of the earth, people would know it by the lack of posts coming through this blog. After four days, I had a number of “Are you okay?” messages rolling in. I have to admit, it made us feel special.
In the past week, we have moved, scrubbed every wall and floor in our new home, and we are completely unpacked. What a relief! Today our internet was installed, so we are once again back in contact with the rest of the world. Of course, we have plenty to show you, and we will get to that as soon as possible. Our new place needs a little more decorating, but that will take a couple months to come together. In the meantime, we will take some photos to share with you. We absolutely LOVE this little home of ours. We wake up smiling every morning, and then sit sipping tea/ coffee while looking out at the beautiful mountain view. Thankfully our move came in the same week as the beautiful blue skies. No more smog or unbearable humidity in Qingdao. Perfect timing I tell you! Perfect!
More coming soon.
