thrilled to be back + showered in light.


Thrilled to be moved and even more thrilled to be back online! They'd told us that it *may* take up to 10 days to move our internet service. It only took 2.5 days, whew! In the meantime, I've received so many lovely messages, and I just can't say thank you enough. So happy to be able to catch up with everyone!


We were able to mostly finish painting (with some help!) before we moved all of our stuff into the house. We still have a fair bit of unpacking to do, and we still need to recover our mattress from another friend's house. Our last house was furnished, so we gave away our mattress. This house is furnished too, but they did take all their bedroom stuff. Now we're taking back our mattress--what indian givers we are! And as I write that I wonder where in tarnations that horrible/ridiculous saying came from? There is a single mattress in the second bedroom, so we've been sleeping on that for the past two nights. It must be a little bigger than a twin, though, because there's plenty of room and we've been sleeping like champs!

The house, though quite small, is so bright and warm! It feels much better to be here, especially now that we're connected. Soon we'll reach the fun decorating stage. Right now, we're going to do a little beach combing in our lovely 3-degree (C) sun, enjoy some fresh air and nourish our achy backs.

Ah, it's just a joyous, happy feeling to be showered in light.

Wow, Serkan took that last picture? So pretty! On a funny note, I do this lesson with my kids about word origins and the racism/sexism/etc. embedded in so many of our sayings (the one I hate the most: gypped), and Indian giver is one of them. :)

love you!

Thank you all for the lovely comments and welcome back! :)

@Claire, yes, Serkan is quite the photog! (and I am quite the editor, does that count?) and I those loaded odd/stupid words are truly awful!

@Abby, we'll see if i actually take pics of the decorating. it can't wait to have something that's more truly ours, but all in due time...

Re: your comment...you can try making compote or cheesecake with frozen blueberries, I think it would work well. I've baked with those before, and they've worked well for me.

Happy to hear you're moving in and settling well in your new home! It takes longer than you think to get everything set up, but is always well worth the hard work.
Indian giver- now that's a saying I haven't heard in years. Where did it come from? Seriously now?

Eadaoin said...

i know the feeling of waiting and hoping for your internet connection to finally come through lol!! i love moving house, it's so nice taking thing out of boxes and finding new places and spaces for them in a new home. i bet you're glad you're all finished now though, it's exhausting! good luck in your new place, i hope you are very happy there :)
