I love our new place. I love it, I love it, I love it. The field is huge and our garden is bigger than our apartment. I have my own separate art studio space with it’s own door (that’s huge when you have a 15 month old and have things to work on while papa watches him). Our house itself is a little tiny, but I normally like smaller living arrangements. The only thing I would change would be to have a slightly larger kitchen as I have newly discovered a slight love for baking and cooking. Our most utilized space (the babies and I) is the courtyard outside of our front door. It’s huge and has a giant raspberry patch. It has tons and tons of flowers and has quite a few trees covering a small walkway. It’s absolutely divine and the babes and I adore it. My favorite bit is the fact that it’s entirely fenced in. It’s so perfect! I can open the front door and prepare lunch inside while the little ones run around outside playing, not that I don’t peek my head out every minute or so just to check.
It was very cloudy today and I was afraid to pack the babies up and venture off, just incase it began to rain. Normally Paloma hops in the stroller and Odin rides in the sling. I really didn’t want to be caught out in the rain so we decided to stay home. Of course they had ridiculous amounts of fun anyway and discovered loads of new things. Paloma really wanted to catch a bumblebee although I continuously insisted she shouldn’t. They played peek-a-boo with each other from behind our big barn storm doors. They climbed up the steps and ran down the walkway. They feasted on raspberries fresh from the earth.
Although we were stuck at home, I think I would call today a very good day.
