Mom’s new digs…

It’s been a wild ride around here. We’ve managed to re-arrange our little space to accommodate 7 people. Though only 5 will remain after the festivities and one will be really tiny and will fit into the crook of my arms. Yesterday the wild woman and I went through all his little clothes and folded and organized everything. He has more clothes than anyone else in the house and many of them have monkeys on them.

Lu is all a twitter. She loves snuggling up next to the wild woman’s big belly and she is always watching watching to see what the wild woman will do next. Eat something? Is it toast? Is there peanut butter on it?


Tomorrow we drive up to SF to pick up my mom. It will be a quick quick banzai trip. No japanese bookstore or ichibankan or Thai massage. Just only eating lunch somewhere in the ferry terminal and farmer’s market shopping maybe.

I’m excited to have my mom here. I’ve made accommodations…

I know I know… too much going on here. Too many textiles! Is there such a thing? I have nowhere else to put them AND she can pile them on the bed and be toasty warm since she says it’s too cold here. I’ve got some warm jammies and socks there for her too.

It’s not a big room and it’s the coldest one in the house but we’ve got a portable heater in there and quilts and hands and paintings and there is one quiet moment…

When the door is closed.

and pretty green vases by the bed…I may find some flowers blooming in the garden to tuck in one.


  1. How lovely and peaceful that room feels. I know your mom will love it. And she is so blessed to be near her daughter and with a little baby to coo over, just right in the center of the flow of life. Wonderful.


  2. Oh my lord this is enchanting, so beautiful, loveliness in every way. What a blessed world to have you in it.
    And that painting above the bed, who did that?
    You rock my socks off Yolie. I hope it all comes back to you in return. I know it will.

    love d


    • D…so glad you found your way here! The painting? the Dishwasher of course. Many moons ago, not one of his favorites but I knew my mom would like it.


  3. i can’t believe the dishwasher got dumped/lost/whatever’ed. appalling! i am glad you are safely here for now!

    have a wonderful holiday with your people. that room is excellent.

    peace and love to you and dw!


    • Bobbi…I know! I’m glad you found your way here. I know you’re settling in to your new digs too and taking
      kick ass pics of it all.


  4. I think it’s lovely too. I didn’t find it busy, just cozy and interesting. You mom will feel the love.

    And a tiny baby coming, oh my. Those teeny tiny clothes, that baby smell!

    Such love emanating from your world. I wish you peace to go with it.
