morgaina: (Exeter jug)
In general things are going very well. I see Deva & family almost daily, to the point where I am longing for more Art time. My son is getting a drawing done daily and even some writing, not sure how he is doing that, Wee Beatrice is an extremely active child. Today they have to leave the AirBnB, they only are able to stay for a month before zoning comes into the picture. So they are moving in with me for the rest of their time before they return to China.

But their and my, big, big news is that they are buying a house in Moscow with the plan of living here every summer!!! Not only that but they are buying a duplex and I am going to rent that and move in sometime next year. They plan to rent their part to a student for the school year and I will be the apartment manager.

I can't believe it and don't know what to think of first. I have a love-hate relationship with my place here. I can't handle all this land and a house that is falling down around my ears, but it's my home. I raised my babies here, I planted every non-willow or cottonwood tree on the place and they are now majestic. I fought for my kids and I to stay when my ex husband tried to sell it out from under us without my knowledge. Amby can run free like a speedy nut job. I have the best pottery studio in the world here and I can do pit firings with no one caring about the billowing smoke. I have over 5 fruit trees that are so heavy with fruit they are bent over. But carrying wood, wood pellets, shoveling snow, having snow plowed, being cold all winter and as I said, the house degrading every season, I know I can't safely stay.

I am also going to have to get rid of 2/3 to 3/4 of my stuff too. Its a not large apartment. There is room for a small studio, but when I started doing pottery eons ago, I always worked in an extra bedroom. So that will be a bit of a challenge, but not much. Its the stuff stuff that concerns.
