Belongings do not make a home, and yet...

The moment I've been waiting for happened yesterday at 9:25 a.m.:  The inter-phone rang and I buzzed the movers through the downstairs door. Our things from France arrived at last.

Now, I believe, I can view our new home as home. With all of our country-hopping over the past couple of years, we've left so many parts of our lives and interests in storage at my mother-in-law's house. There is still a studio (and an attic) at her place crowded with our furniture, art, books, and so forth, but most of what we hold dear for one reason or another is now here with us.

The first step will be finding everything a place--the kitchen is good to go and, let me tell you, I'm so grateful to have my spices and a whisk and a vegetable peeler and, and, and...--and the next will be to start making again.

I'm eager. Welcome home, belongings!

So happy to think of your house gradually becoming a home!

Thought of you the other day as I picked out some banana fingers to buy :-)

It is getting there. I need to move it past bombsite into cozy home in the near future, or I'm going to go crazy. :P

I hope you got some tasty banana fingers. :D

WOOT!

Although I will claim that you have been "making" all along. ;)

It feels lovely, but my waistline might soon be saying "too lovely." I haven't spent much time out of the kitchen since all my appliances arrived. :P
