new pad

August 12, 2008

I moved into my very own place over the weekend, which is so freaking awesome that I wish I had a better word to describe it, but in my excitement the only way I can currently emphasize the awesome is by prefacing it with freaking.  It’s weak, I know, but I hope this conveys my enthusiasm.

C’est vraiment de toute beauté! I want to tell you all about it, and I will,  but for now there are floors to wash, walls to paint, things to buy, things to rearrange, things to recycle, dust (and lots of it) to wipe off, groceries to do (you know the one – the first grocery shopping that costs like $350), smells to remove and fragrances to add (each house has its own smell and this place doesn’t quite smell like home yet – I suspect that a dehydrator full of macaroons, open windows, a blueberry pie in the oven, a pot of soup boiling on the stove top, some beeswax candles and a few incense sticks might do the trick).

I can’t wait to tell you all about the how (the Universe works in mysterious ways), the when, the who and the where (oh! how I love this where). I’ll be back when the house is clean, with a slice of pie and a cup of ginger tea and stories to share.

    Big, BIG congratulations! Your new place is gorgeous and once you’ve really had time to make your creative mark it’ll be even more so. I can almost smell that soup and pie from here.
