all moved in ~ trying to make the new house “home”… i confess that i am just not feeling it. where do i put this picture? where do i place this memento? how do i hang curtains when i’ve broken 3 drill bits trying to drill in these 80 year old walls? so i stack the pictures in a corner for another day, randomly place our travel mementos where they probably make no sense (but i kind of like it that way), and the curtains are still draped like tired ballerinas in the back room… but, i can still cook!
