Blissfully Exhausted

Remember a long time ago when I had time to make self-deprecating references to my lack of domestic skills? When I joked or whined or got pissy(?) about cleaning and errands and messes and chaos and the state of grunge and rental woes?
Remember?
No?
Oh, you're just being polite.
Or you're new here... have we met?
Well, I have been known to share brief moments of sanitary lapses and glimpses in to my "dirty" laundry, and I have always said that I prefer to be honest, than to gloss over the whole truth.

Anyway. My point is.
Ha!
I have no point!

I just thought I would say: It's even harder to take care of two houses!

Mercy.

Moving.
Packing.
Cleaning.
Unpacking.
Organizing.
Purging.
Hauling.
Delegating.
Driving.
Lifting.
Deciding.
Choosing.
Aching.

Sighing.

And falling deeper in love with the place we call home.


Onward!

  3. Holy WOW! What an incredible photo! Absolutely fantastic! The work of two houses is NOT good fantastic. Sorry about that, however, the alternatives aren't so inviting. Sending you love, energy and cyber hugs. Delia V. Lyons

    Hi, Very amusing and a great read. I don't know if your chickens in the picture are a common breed but we have two like yours and we live in France. My story started this year when we inherited 5 chickens after we moved to France from England..

  6. We have a chicken like yours and we live in France. I am very much a novice but maybe they are common or very popular, yet to find out lots more.
