Whirlwinds! Running all over and packing and getting ready to move into a new wee house with the Professor! (Who really needs a new nom de blog, by the by. He’s not really a Professor!) Very exciting and very scary too! Shhh! But, life is going faster than blogging is possible, so I have a backlog of moments I want to treasure and remember and document. First, before tiny moments start slipping away: Vermont.
This seemed like the fastest trip ever, even though we had 6 days. Dark nights curled up in the tiny cabin – the first time sleeping in it. I love it more than anything. Wrapped tight in creamy flannel sheets drinking hot spiced wine, reading by candlelight, watching the most gorgeous low hunter’s moon rise over the skeleton treetops, hearing the brook burble all night, pheasants in the underbrush, endless kissing of babies, family time and love love love. So good and coming back to Oakland was just not right! I want to go back now! Rawr!
Cabin! I didn’t do ANYTHING I wanted to this trip – no painting, no finishing, nothing. So interior windows still need finishing, the walls need to be whitewashed, I need a woodstove (oh, I really really do, brrrrr!) and furniture! It will all have to happen in May. Slowest cabin building, ever.
Time to eat! I worked at this diner when I was 16, very briefly. It’s now all local, all organic, totally amazing.
