the girl with no internet



We had an impromptu move last Thursday in anticipation of coming rain. The rain wasn't as bad as we thought it was going to be, but it was a great excuse to get settled in to the new house. Which we love.

You know what else I love?


This incredible hutch I found at our favorite local antique mall this weekend.

I had actually seen it a few months ago and considered it at full price. When I saw it had been marked down to $75 last weekend, I was....yeah. I started to need it. But I was alone, and without a truck! When we went back this weekend and it was still there, I knew it was meant to be.


I'm going to add a few holes so two of the shelves are tall enough for the dolls to be standing (I think they look more like a grown-up collection that way and less like toys).


And the bottom is perfect for quilt and works-in-progress storage. Yay.

A couple other loves:


We have lots of neighborhood kitties! A little girl told me this one's name is Echo. He was squirrelin' in our back yard today.


Yard work! I did a bit this weekend for basically the first time ever (besides helping mom when I was little). There are some gorgeous plants at the house but it's completely over grown. Notice the maple trees growing beside the irises? Yeaaah, those are going to have to go! I never knew weeding would be fun. I'm guessing it won't be next spring when it's less novel.

Oh yeah, and about the title? I'm leading a double life. Amazingly productive and disconnected at the house, interneting at the loft. Hence the lack of updates. Hopefully that will get fixed this week!
