We are moved into our forever home, the house is eternal boxes
And I need to go to ace AGAIN because I realized I bought the wrong sort of
Screws to mount brackets for curtains (made of drop cloths!) and orryn has a cold
And we're going to my parents tomorrow for birthdays and pumpkin patching plus
I need a break from errands; there are two pomegranate trees in pots that need
Planting and our backyard is a dust and mud dirt pit, what to do. The kitchen is almost
Put away but I have to go to ikea AGAIN because we need more shelf liner ugh the worst.
At night the sprinklers come on, the houses next to us are empty, saved by the university to
Lure deans, we are surrounded by scientists and diggers of all sorts building the very last
Of the neighborhood's houses, long legged shadows in the dusky sky. Soon there will be a new
Pool up the street and tennis courts and a new observatory... I kind if want a redbud
Tree, and a star pine.

Towers of boxes, increasing. Soon we will move into
Our stucco box. In the new neighborhood, butterflies
Everywhere, excited about the lavender the landscapers
Planted in all the new front yards. I am excited to
Settle and have it be our own. Kind of mourning the ohio
Farmhouse idea, a lovely old shack we could have spruced up.
I will tear out whatever tree they put in the front yard
And put in a pomegranate. I need to buy a shovel.
Otherwise, these days. We went camping in big sur. we made
More playdough and also covered pine cones in peanut butter
And bird seed. We are going to take the train to la to
Visit friends. Orryn and I had Peruvian food for lunch
Today. I guess it is called Chifa, Peruvian Chinese food.
There was a delicious cilantro sauce.

It is hot, we have colds. We went and picked
Strawberries and carrots at the farm anyhow.
Our lovely neighbor made extra soup and gave us some,
So I didn't need to make dinner, we had the soup
With lettuce we picked. We have less than
2 months til we move. Lots of waiting around,
And dreaming about packing. We've moved about 8
Times in 10 years.

i want to learn the names of more native plants,
so we can plant them in our yard and also for the knowing.
i recognize lots of things, like sage and oleander (not native,
but everywhere, along with jacaranda and some other things), anyhow
i just learned ceanothus, that's all over the place, too.

black tar bubbling from cliffs at the beach is very black.
and sticky.





orryn loves picking oranges at his grandparent's. we always tote home a bushel.



i want to make a fairy door like this in one of the pepper trees at the playground here.



i think orryn has nightmares about pooh, we got him a stuffed pooh and he keeps
saying "not!" and tossing it off the balcony.



mission at san juan capistrano is very beautiful



this is how i'm sitting now, hahaha my desk is in the closet

I can use the oed since we're on campus internet. I love looking up etymology. I was reading something about organizing yr house and I looked at that fly lady blog, she's crazy. The beginners guide has you wiping out yr kitchen sink every night and putting dirty dishes in a bin under the sink until they're ready to be washed. Too much. The sink is FOR dirty dishes. I like the unfuck your habitat thing about making yr bed everyday better; it seems actually useful. I guess whatever works. I don't think we have much clutter but sometimes a lot of craft and art projects and cooking stuff--right now, piles of fabric for making cloth napkins, pots of different bubble formulas, various painting things, various cake and cupcake planning. Like moomin house, we're not a fillyjonk house, haha. Orryn calls the magnifying glass a Hemulen. I finally found the totoro I made for orryn, it was under the mounds of clothes that fell in the closet. Have you read Maurice send ask outside over there? Orryn likes the ice baby. I read about it on wiki, it says it was the inspiration for labyrinth.

I need to order prints for our albums. After I fill the one I'm working on, I give up on albums, I will just get those photo books instead, it seems neater / simpler.

I made orryn a doctor's kit and ordered a bunch of junk to fill it. The stethoscope came a couple days ago (it works! Like $3 on eBay) and it was fun listening to everyone's heartbeat (kitty, too). It's almost done. I wanted to get some X-rays printed and laminated but I guess I'll do that later, next time orryn has a doctor appointment (he has his 2 yr Friday, so I'm going to bring out the kit before the appointment).

He fell asleep late so I just went round the house and hid the eggs so I won't need to in the morning. We have lovely blueberry/oatmeal/flaxseed/yogurt/coconut milk/male syrup muffins for breakfast, and a potluck egg hunt thing in the park in the afternoon. There's a rabbit family in his easter basket, like those little flocked dolls; they're for the dollhouse he'll get for his birthday, which is soon so soon! We're going to have a wee party in the courtyard, nothing fancy... I want to try and make animal crackers but I may end up purchasing them at trader joes. Otherwise, strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting, watermelon/cantaloupe melon balls on sticks, sugar peas and baby carrots with hummus, maybe deviled eggs or popcorn... Oh yeah, Popsicles. I have a ton of pop molds. Not sure what sort--strawberry and orange? Coconut mango. Lemonade.

Waiting to hear about things. Adventuring on various explorations.
