Lots of things going on.
Cardboard boxes everywhere.
Computer crash- already fixed.
Goodbyes to dear friends.
Trowing away. Lots. And lots. And lots.
Buying things to take to Argentina.
Reading of old journals. Our early days as immigrants in Canada.
Connection with the future.
Visualization of the new house.
A walk on the forest- Beautiful and cold!
Another bit of packing.
Sweet kisses! I'll be busy for now.
Palomaria will reopen early next year- as soon as we're settled again.
I'll be working as usual.
For now, the shop is on vacation. I'm a very busy bee on the domestic field.
I may or may not write this blog in the meantime.
Just in case: very happy holidays!

Here's the latest addition.
It's a Holiday in Canada and we're off to Science World with the kids and Gabe, Mica's buddy.

There were spooky fingers, monsters, and bags filled with candy.
A couple of times we lit the fireplace (although it's not too cold yet the children love it)
Soon we'll be packing our entire house for our move to Argentina. People ask me if I'm excited...well, that's not a word to describe the predominant clouds of feelings that appear at this moment. There's the inevitable stress, some mourning for our current life, but also the fleeting images of the great moments that we remember from the past in Argentina: the forest and seaside at the beach, the dear friends. The possibility of seeing grandma in half an hour!
While I look forward to be settled there as soon as possible and have the children well adjusted to the new, I'm more than ever reminding myself to dwell in the present. On the way to school every morning I look at the spectacular red of the Japanese Maple trees and let the color and the tree sink deep in me. I love those trees and want them to be in me forever!
