Can we talk about the nails? You know, since they are front and center here and an indication of all the time I am not spending getting manicures. (For any perfectionists out there, you will be relieved to know that after seeing this photo I went home and took the last of the blue off my nails so although they may not be buffed and polished, they are at least plain and clear– you’re welcome!)
What has been going on?
Well– we moved office which went super smoothly in all the ways I had planned and then went pear-shaped in all the ways I had not prepared: fumes from fresh paint and floor varnish made it impossible to work there the first week; no possibility of installing a sink (<– boo!), delays and hiccups in getting high-speed internet . . etc. You know the drill.
Moving = Expect the Unexpected, n’est-ce pas?
The mill buildings above are not my office space but Asya’s — there are a number of old mill complexes around here that have been turned into office and studio spaces. I will be sure to share loads of my new digs once I get into a normal life routine.
Well, you know– as normal and as routine as I ever do.
So far the dogs are settling in well and loving the community which is really warm and welcoming to them.
God, I love summer so much and we need so much more time to both do NOTHING and explore, play and create. *sigh*
You can be sure there has been tons of journaling and soul work, too as that seems to be my thang. It’s the harder thing for me to talk about and share here because it would take more time and reflection to write with clarity around all that is opening up for me.
All good. Stuff I like. It feels like things are really popping for me right now. Three years into living here and all of a sudden every day, every night there are SO many things I want to do and I simply can’t do them all. You know that old gardening adage about perennials?
second year they creep,
third year they leap?
Yeah. It’s like that– much with the leaping around here.
