I’d tell it to go away, but it’s just too beautiful. I love the way it rains here: big, cold drops that soak everything, a fine mist hanging in the air like we live in a cloud, and the world is all in shades of blue.
I have made so much bread this past month that my favorite, base recipe is memorized and I’ve gone through almost twenty pounds of flour!
Last week, while unpacking and going through my clothes, I found all my work slacks and blouses and had the surreal feeling that I was unpacking, shaking out, folding, and repacking a whole different person. One year seems like a lifetime ago.
I don’t think I’ve ever taken so long to try at putting a new life together. I could tell you it’s because I was so tired and so busy with new motherhood or I could tell you the truth; I didn’t want to move so, in my stubborn way, I did, but I also didn’t. I’m incredibly grateful we happened upon this crazy, lovely house in this tiny, lovely town. We have been welcomed so warmly, I’ve found it impossible to hold on to my anger and depression.
There’s a patch of blue sky getting bigger outside my kitchen window and the weather app says we’re heading for over 70 degrees . . . I think I’m going to pack up my sweet Sunshine when she’s done napping and find some water today. : )
