Moving Day

The Living/Dining Room at Winter Solstice, Walls and Floors Done!

View of Kitchen From Living Room

At last, the day has come. A few more details, a few more items to assemble, and we move our life over to the new house. I realize it will still be a process, as the final configuration of things will slowly unfold, but a basic, functioning kitchen will be in place by tomorrow, and the furniture and trappings of a life will all vacate the yurt. What an amazing Birthday-Solstice-Christmas gift to arrive at this moment.

We've been sleeping in our amazing bedroom since a week before Thanksgiving, and this has been a huge blessing. We have had an extremely wet December, with lots of rainy, stormy nights. I would have enjoyed significantly less sleep during that time had we not been over there at night. But the back and forth each day, just before bedtime and first thing in the morning, has been a challenge for me in particular, as we are now expecting our second child (!), and I am needing to eat at odd hours of the night, as well as first thing in the morning. So this move is a very welcome and relieving prospect for me!

I'll take some more photos once we move everything in, and set up our Christmas tree. Game on!

Great blog, Amanda, and many congratulations on moving into your beautiful new home!

You're a great example of a very sensible use for yurts. :) What are you planning to do with your yurt now?

Wishing you a fabulous 2011 as you continue to finish out and furnish your new home and welcome a new little one into the world and your family!!

All the best,
becky kemery
