Sneak Peek

Last night, we signed the papers blocking in the sale for the house.

I will spend many hours fetching books from this little library and reading on that sofa in front of the fire. :D



I spent many an hour going through our boxes (many, many, many book boxes) in order to get ready for the move.*  Today I have to pack our suitcases. Back to Egypt tomorrow.

* When we sold our house in 2006 and moved to Mayotte, we put our belongings into storage at my MIL's place. We've continued to add to that stock over the last 10 years. She has had enough, to say the least. We'll soon be out of you hair, MIL; soon! :D

Is this a picture from your future home? How lovely!

It'll be great for you to be able to put down roots at last.

My roots are yearning!
It is! It is a small library, totally closed off with that oak paneling, and the door on the left leads to the stairs to the upper floors.:D

After 5 years of searching, we finally found it! It is so good to know that we do have a place waiting for us. :D
