home sweetest home

We had a really lovely time visiting family and friends in Toronto, but it was even lovelier to return back home. Suprisingly enough, we missed out on any big snows back east, but we arrived home to several feet of whiteness upon our door. A snowy Christmas-time for us, after all!



But we are safe and cozy and warm in our little house and Addie and I have been only mostly peeping at the snowflakes from the windows. It feels so nice and perfect to be back here on the moutaintop. And I am happy that it is beginning to feel like home here, more and more each day. Slowly slowly I continue to unpack and organise, a little more each day. It is a bit easier now that Addie can crawl about and explore while I do so, and it makes me happy to re-discover old forgotten treasures hidden amongst the boxes!



I have a few goals for this 2008. This year I hope to learn to drive (!) and get my driver's license. I want to watch television only rarely, and spend less time online as well, in the hopes that I have more time to make things. I also hope to lose a bit of this pregnancy weight and begin to get back to the body that feels like my own. And begin a garden spot at the community garden, too!

You guys got snow up there?! We got nuthin' in Seattle area. :(

I thought I should let you know that I believe your baby might not be human. Rather, she may be a fembot in diguise. They look human but are not. She is MUCH TOO CUTE to be human. Check her back for her electrical panel. Just in case. Otherwise, I guess you just got lucky :)

(She makes me smile with every pic. So sweet.)

Happy New Year 2008!

Hi I'm Jenny. I've visited lovelydesign online for a year or two now to be inspired. I'm not brave enough to do a blog yet, but all your photos and treasures have me thinking about new directions for life and creativity in general...as they say, when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Thank you for sharing!

I have one daughter, 5, and I adore all your photos of yours. Seeing other people's photos reminds me how much I still need to catch on film!

hi unha - happy new year to you, too!

hi uncle beefy - We only get snow because we live on the top of a mountain! Vancouver, as per usual, has little or no snow. I think you might be right about my child - there is something a little strange about her!

Hi Jenny, thank you for such a lovely comment. Even though I really do not feel so inspiring to anyone these days (not even myself!) I am hoping this will kick back in once I have my work space all set up...

learning to drive - it wasn't until i had my son that i actually got my license too. i always felt so embarrassed and odd to admit it, but it's surprising how many other people didn't get theirs till adulthood too. (though i didn't drive at all this past year traveling, so all the north american roads and traffic seem so strange to me now.)

happy new year!
