it's happening


86::365


we are moving...
flew into minnesota thursday,
giving ourselves only five days
to vacate the house


the piano was the first to go,
to the home of a pianist who will be playing
it frequently, unlike the silence in our home
since our daughter left


87::365


and how is it that we accumulate so much...
each closet, each bookshelf,
each cupboard so full
but with the help of incredible friends

all those hidden places
are empty tonight,
the house full of boxes
and we are very weary, but happy to be ready for the move!

before & after


before


four days ago,
I stood above our washed away beach
and captured this view of the jetty

today, hard to believe,
I stood in the same spot
and captured our "nourished" beach


84::365


for most of the winter months,
the nourishment process
was far down the beach


sand is piped in from out in the gulf,
then spread and smoothed to create
"new" beach


but last night,
we gathered and watched
along our waterfront


during


during


and tonight,
there was a new expanse
for taking in the sunset

out for brunch


82::365


car was due at the service garage
right in the middle of a downpour...

taxes had to be picked up
and reviewed...

and so we stopped for brunch
at our funky favorite
(they make the best scones, full of fresh fruit)

it was my first meal away from home
since the hospital


out for brunch


and this guy...

well I cannot tell you
how full of gratitude and love
I am for all the smiles
and care he has given me
these last three long months...

fog


81::365


there is something I find comforting
on a foggy morning...

I suppose it's because the fog
limits what I see...

and allows me focus on one small piece of the world
without having to take it all in...

a transition to the daylight

spring


spring


we barely noted this first day of spring...
instead of delicate spring flowers,
we have this riot of color


spring


the brilliant sun
and the deep, deep blues
of sky and water

Karma waiting
for her bff to appear

she was rewarded
with these two leprechauns!

E is gone for the night,
our little girl,
missing him so,
takes over his spot.

home


71::365


arrived home late last night
to a very happy little Karma

adjusting to the warmth (not really a problem)
and the concept of "home"

since we have barely been here
these last months

snow day

today was a snow day for DC...
when government offices
and many schools were closed


snow day in DC
8:30 am


we watched it
from our 6th floor perch...
melting at first, but later sticking


snow day in DC
1:00 pm


tomorrow will be cold...
like MN cold after a snowstorm
but it will all melt with the weekend warm-up


snow day in DC
5:00 pm


mama and bebe wisely stayed home today...
so here's another adorable capture
from yesterday's visit!

a perfect day

after a day of frozen mix...
I ventured outside for the first time
to soak up the sun under a brilliant blue sky

as he stretched out his full length

Gpa sang him to sleep
