the big time

The next few weeks are big time. We're moving to a new apartment! Squee! The move coincides with a season of very busy work schedules for both of us and we'll also be away for part of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. It's all a bit overwhelming, to be honest, but it's nice to know that in just a few weeks I'll be unwinding on our new luscious back deck with a glass of chilled wine in my hands. It is with that thought that I will push through moving everything we own down three flights of stairs in the early summer heat.

Interestingly, many of the boxes we've packed so far have been filled with either glass jars or books. I have serious collections of both. Moving always makes me rethink my ever-expanding personal library.

When the posting gets even lighter than it has been, just know that I am scurrying around like a madwoman and will be back soon :)

  1. Three flights of stairs surely adds to the intesity of moving. What a work out!

    Kindle vs. books in hand... There's something about cozying up with a cup of tea and holding a book that I wonder if Kindle will ever come close to. And for those bookworms (like me)...what about the smell of a book? Unique, no?

  3. NEVER stop collecting books & glass jars....

    ...and now that you have a bigger kitchen, watch out for even more fun stuff like CANNING EQUIPMENT! WOOT!
