it has been an intense 48 hours, but we are finally moved into the new house!
amazingly I have unpacked 80% of the boxes, only because we have been living out of boxes for well over three months now and I couldn’t bear the sight of them anymore. what a novelty, to be able to put things away again! the house could not be better, cozy, quaint, and full of good writing energy!
the move was made a bit more difficult by a raging migrane, three days long, (combined with a strange and unusual case of acne!?, I haven’t had it like this since I was 15). i suppose all the tension of the last few months all came flooding out all at once. but i have been able to keep food down, and i must be feeling better because I made my first walk downtown this morning. it’s a little longer of a walk now, about 1/2 hour.
as I walked through my new neighborhood i found myself tearing up. the street are filled with big beautiful old victorians decorated for halloween. right across the street is the quintessential halloween house, (I’ll see if I can get a photo of it), think of the design of the psycho house but much more quaint and beautiful and not scary at all.
walking down the big hill i pass a fancy old street lined with well kept ‘professors’ houses, a beautiful big pond hidden by trees, a waterfall, and an ancient graveyard.
as i walk i think of how i am excited to go home again later and (ignoring all the work I have to do), curl up with a good book and some tea.
(i’ll try and post a photo soon, once again i’m without internet.)
