A Love Letter,

From the desk of Marsha Amanova

August 2021


I’m going to try to keep this brief, because all of a sudden we are signing a lease and getting the keys to our apartment in Pugwash, Nova Scotia today!

We found a quirky two-bedroom apartment in an historic inn (?) recently purchased by a rental company. There are only 4 units in the building, the price is reasonable and the view from the shared backyard is amazing. More about that next month once we get settled!

If you told me 3 months ago that I would be excited about moving in to an apartment, I’d have thought you were crazy, but I have a good feeling about this.

We were able to settle into a pretty good rhythm at mom and dad’s this month, but I think we are all ready to have a bit more space. They won’t be able to get rid of us completely though! We’ll have to leave the band set up in dad’s workshop for one thing, and I think we’ve all enjoyed sitting down to meals together, so I’m sure we’ll continue getting together pretty regularly.

We’ve done more visiting and socializing this month than in the previous two years combined! Extended family visits, bbqs, outdoor Shakespeare, Farmers’ Market schmoozing, brewery patio pints, in-person D&D and a mini vacation (just Aldon and I) to Halifax. We haven’t stopped wearing masks indoors, and I suspect that will continue through the fall and winter.

I’ve been working quite a lot, I’m still recovering from a major server crash that destroyed 7 of my websites this weekend (fortunately I had backups, but they still needed to be reinstalled and set up). Not fun.

What is fun? Aldon’s bees on Instagram. Have you seen them? Lovely little snippets of joy. If you need a wee bit of wonder in your day, I highly recommend them.
What is moving or shifting in your world lately? Have you noticed anything small that made you smile? Hit reply and let me know! I love hearing from you.

Until next month, I'm Marsha Amanova and I love 🥰
