Hello! How was your weekend?
We (well, I) started packing the kitchen. Boxes are everywhere and I'm trying to decide what do I need for the next week or should I pack it. I've learned something about myself with this process. Whenever I start a room I feel hopeless and like it's never going to end. Then it ends and I rarely celebrate it's finished-ness. I move onto the next room and start the hopeless feeling all over again. Where is the positivity in that??
I think I might need to meditate MORE. (just an astute observation)
The above photo is a clementine from my husband's briefcase that has been tucked inside for OVER a year! He last went to the office maybe end of February 2020 - then the pandemic shutdown and zoom working from home began. He retired in August 2020 - only this weekend (!) did he clean out the briefcase. I had to document that beautiful shriveled piece of forgotten fruit, an incredible artifact.
As much as I'm going to miss this house, this town and all of my friends, I'm looking forward to some new beginnings. I'm also looking forward to unpacking instead of packing.
I'll be visiting this space again on Wednesday and possibly Friday, but after that it will be a slippery slope on showing up. The movers arrive early next week to begin the process of loading up the semi. If I do any posting while being knee-deep in chaos it will be on instagram.
Although the postings will be sporadic I'll be thinking of you all. I like schedules and I like documenting and truly want to be here for normalcy. Thank you for visiting, reading and commenting!
Did I mention I will have a new studio/office space in the new house? I've got lots of new ideas for how I want that space to look and feel.
