Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
Tout doit bien être casé...Gros bisous
Ahh. It looks like such a calm place to sit and ponder. Camera views are often deceiving!
Don't you just love a good move?!
I know I'm going to love this house! You still have a beautiful view....waterrrrrrrrr. Sorry about all those boxes, but WOW!
Just remember: each box has a treasure inside;Now , you have to find it..:o)
Then this is indeed the calm before the storm. What peaceful image with the reflection and all.
I've moved 12 times in my life...and still feel tired at the mention of BOXES. :) This last move about half of them contained books, though, which are more fun to unpack than things like kitchen utensils.
As long as your new place is as big or bigger than the last, those boxes won't be a problem. Now if your new place is smaller - you have my prayers. I am dealing with that right now. Take time to sit. Just lovely!
Michaele: new place is smaller. Squeeeeeze.
Popping over from Mitali's blog to see you're moving too! Wishing you all the best. I love new beginnings ...
Moving your things into a smaller residence is like assembling a three dimensional puzzle. The interesting thing is that as you try to find a place for each piece you assess its importance. In a sense, you reacquaint yourself with your possessions.
The last time we moved (six years ago) We didn't put the curtains up, we just piled the boxes up in front of the windows. Then when all the boxes were unpacked we found the curtains in the last ones unpacked and put them up. It worked out quite well.
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
