Daily Photo: All Was Not Lost

Yesterday we drove an hour to go to an antique fair, with high hopes of buying a bookshelf or two, or at least some interesting objects for a reasonable price.  It was a total bust.  Everything was insanely overpriced, and although somewhat interesting, not worth spending a week’s worth of grocery money on.  I miss […]

Daily Photo: This is My Street

Just a few leaves hanging on to the trees around us, this time of year makes me kind of giddy and wistful, all at once.  I wrote about making peace with the seasons last year, and those sentiments have not changed at all.  It is so gorgeous here, although we are feeling nostalgic for Germany […]

Countryside Grocery Scavenger Hunt

 I know I already mentioned the roadside shopping in the last post, but I just have to share with you what we came up with today, as we headed toward the coast.  Here are some pictures, and I’ll also give you an inventory.  The crazy thing is that we didn’t know about any of the […]

Weekends Are For Wandering

The last two weekends, we haven’t made any real plans.  We’ve generally needed some groceries and wanted to get out of the house, but still didn’t have the energy to take on serious explorations of new cities.  We have been completely unambitious, and we have had the best time.  We just got in the car […]

Longing

The last time I felt so much longing, my daughter was still in my womb in my last weeks of pregnancy.  I could feel the little bumps of her spine, I could picture her posture, curled up inside me.  I had seen the 3-D ultrasound pictures of her little face, and I felt like I […]

Country Life

So, we made it safely to the next chapter of our unusual lives!  The leaving from Portland and arriving in London went off without a hitch, and it’s hard to believe we’ve been here for almost two weeks.  We are staying at a B&B out in the middle of nowhere in Suffolk, which is why […]

The Final Countdown!

We’re definitely in that awkward stage right now of being in the US, but not really being here, just waiting around for the final trip.  We moved out of our house in Bend three weeks ago, and have spent quite a bit of time staying at my in-laws’ house in Silverton, with day trips to […]
