In our new home at last

The move has been accomplished! At long last, we are in our new house in Joshua Tree. I won't go into great length about the gritty details, other than to say I am SO HAPPY it is over. It was fairly rocky, and now, to top it all off, we have been without internet for four days! I am going into withdrawal! There has been a grave error on the part of our internet service provider, and they have offered us DIAL UP for free until they can hook up our DSL. Have you been on dial up after having high speed?? WHOA, is it SLOOOOOOWWW... So I am afraid there will be no photos joining this blog for a while. Sorry, but I just don't have the patience for that.

Things you should never move without:
a hand truck
the biggest moving truck you can afford.

I hope we won't be moving again in a long, long, long, long time.

You're moved! Yay! I'm sure you're relieved. I'm in the minority, probably, but I love unpacking and setting all my stuff up in a new order in new rooms. That doesn't mean I'm in any hurry to move anytime soon, though!

Congrats on your move. I've been through Joshua tree many times on my way to the river. Do you like it there? I imagine you are really hot up there.

I'll keep checking back.. I like your blog and once you are on DSL it will be like heaven again.

Thanks for your visit to my spoon art blog.

Hi Karine! How fun to be in your new house! Can't wait to see some pics. Enjoy moving in and getting settled. That's the fun part!

hi again,
i'm not sure whether i am supposed to reply to your comments on your blog or mine.
aren't sketchbooks supposed to be disasters? mine is too.
this is a page from one of my journals.

hi karine,
i have several journals. one consists of only writing, another one for experiments like the one i sent for IF blog-'missing'and this one which you like, with beautiful handmade paper which just inspires me to do this particular kind of work. my sketchbook has lots of roughs and charcoal drawing experiments and a mishmash of other things. i don't keep beautiful sketchbooks. i use sketches to remove my inhibitions before beginning a picture.
what about you?
