I am still alive, but I am without internet at home. It has been over 2 dark weeks and I have set the wheels in motion to switch ISP's. (Yes toronto people, cursed Sympatico is my problem- do a pile of 12 year old work there?) I am stealing a moment at the end of the work day for a quick hello!
Our move went as well as can be expected but as I imagine in the same way you forget the pain of childbirth (do you??) I have blocked that day out of my memory. Was it all a dream? Our legs ached for days and the bruises in odd places have faded. We are more or less settled and I am happily finding lots of pleasure in the small things- tea in our new kitchen in the mornings, planting impatiens in my front yard (thanks mum!) and just plain puttering. Ah the joy of puttering. The first week I woke every day in a bit of a panic, just at the newness, but I am finally feeling better. Conquering the washer last weekend helped! I had been afraid it would explode or leak everywhere, but no- it actually washes clothes! In the basement!!
I managed to get out to meet some blog friends! See picture here. That's me looking foolish in the middle with the braids. I met Mishka Lee and David, Michelle C and Aaron from NYC who were staying with Krissy and Paul. We had a great lunch and I ate too many dumplings, if that is even possible. It is so neat to meet blogging friends, I just love it. Everyone was so nice! Thanks Krissy for arranging it!
I hope to be back in the saddle next week. My little studio is slowly taking shape and I have a couple of things to do. I have been looking at flickr secretly on my tea breaks and have added many more to my
unwieldy favorites page. I am so inspired by all the things you do! I feel like little car revving its engine just waiting to race out of the starting blocks. I want to get back to making!
Have a great weekend everyone.
