storms and quiet

Finally, we have our internet up and running well, and we have a good number of boxes unpacked. We are still settling in, and getting used to our happy new living arrangement. We keep walking around saying, "I know I've said this a hundred times, but I love our house!". This house is magical and lovely.

Today I will work on getting my studio set up, and finish the painting of the walls. I painted them from lavender to a white called "crisp linen". Now it feels a bit cold to me, so I'm going to see what I can do to warm it up. I need more shelving and I need to hang up art and inspiration, and I think that I'd like plants in there and some better lighting.

Scott was very sick this week, with a bad cold and a migraine that lasted for days. Luckily he had the week off, so he's been able to lie low and spend lots of quality time with the couch. Today he's back in Petaluma, picking up the last of his stuff from his old house.

The kids will be home from their dad's house any minute now, and I'm hoping to spend a nice day with them, setting up their room more fully, and doing some projects and maybe some baking. It is pouring rain today, we are getting a huge winter storm, and they are forecasting that it will rain through Monday. We already have flood warnings, and it's possible that school will be closed when it's time for the kids to go back on Tuesday!

I have lots of backed up blog postings that I'll try to write over the coming week, and photos of the house and of our Disney trip.

I hope that your holidays were everything you wanted them to be!
