Today is the big moving day. It started a few hours ago and already a big box truck is full. They're putting furniture on a pickup truck now and will then drive 0.35 miles to unload it all. And come back for another load. It's exhausting, and we've been doing this (minus the heavy furniture) … Continue reading Big Day
Month: January 2020
Amusing anecdote from a previous move: Father was packing boxes of books and labeling them so he could find things quickly later. Of course, when you get down to the last things you wind up with a motley assortment in some boxes. I carried out one box labeled, "mostly holy fathers." 😄
It’s for Real
I was just updating my calendar and making a note in all caps for February 2: WEBSITE MUST BE READY AND STOCKED because a cool new thing is beginning that week on Monday. This is a bit harrowing because we are literally moving the previous week. Anyway, more on that event (much more) later. Argh. … Continue reading It’s for Real
Custom Orthodox Priest Doll
I just finished this custom priest doll. He was made from photos of the priest and is intended as a gift for him. I hope he likes it!
Good morning! I hope to make this a productive day. I'm so glad I stepped back out for a second look at the sunrise, because otherwise I would have missed the crescent moon.
I'm exhausted but I will toss an update out quickly. Cozy House Curios I've been working on a commissioned priest doll to be given to the priest himself. Except for the ironing he is completely done. I will take nice photos tomorrow but I'll put up a few here so you can see: I'm also … Continue reading Monday Updates
I didn’t even know these succulents bloomed. Look at the cool symmetry of this weed. New grass under the bird feeder. After posting these pictures I looked back over them and decided anyone could be forgiven if he thought it looked like a spring slideshow. Truth be told, it has felt more like spring than … Continue reading Rolling along
[Photo completely at odds with my disjointed state of mind] Moving is a pain. I mean, it's good, it has some good aspects, but overall it's dreadful. I'm very overwhelmed right now. The big girls have gone back to school so I can't reply on them to help with little ones. It's house blessing season … Continue reading Overwhelmed
Sticking in a plug here for my shop, Cozy House Curios. Given that we're moving in just over 2 weeks I decided a moving sale was in order. Almost everything in the shop that is already made and ready to ship is 40% off with the coupon code MOVING2020. The two exceptions are larger dolls … Continue reading Moving Sale

I'm absolutely beat. Bear with me: this is not going to be a beautiful-uplifting-reflection-essay, but a let-me-get-my-head-on-straight post. So, to cut to the chase, we are moving. Not far, granted, literally just across the neighborhood. Our current landlords are selling the house this spring so we had to go house hunting. Finding something with enough … Continue reading Busy busy busy
