Safely ensconsed

So we are now ensconsed in a mother in law apartment at a friend’s house for the duration of the construction mess. We are in a 500 sf place, which was already over-furnished. But we have carefully determined what we need to have and places for it. It is a bit odd what we have saved:

My kaliedoscope with its 100+ wheels
Our game sets of cards and 5 tops (so much fun for kitty)
Our books
The 2 feet of clothes for me (5 work outfits, 2 sweat day outfits)
4 days of clothes for MaJe
Tea, spices, food
4 cups (we’ve lost one already–a major tragedy)
3 bowls
2 plates
our spring tulips
books (only a few!) and journals.

It is amazing how much more we are actually *using* our stuff now. We haven’t played cards for so long–and now we enjoy that. We are actually reading the books we brought–instead of looking and promising.

Of course, it also helps/hinders that our temporary digs have intermittant to no internet access…


  1. Thanks for the comment on my teeny house post. I am glad to have your link so I can come back and follow along. Looking forward to your experiences in tiny house living.

  2. Actually, we haven’t been reading or playing games because of our exhaustion. I have been literaly trying to come back to life, and Deena has been fighing with her own health issues, as well as my nearly dying last year. Add house hunting and then the construction mess to all that, and, well, exhaustion takes its toll.

    And we are already benefitting from the smaller place. Fewer steps to the bathroom, kitchen, bed, etc.

    And we are looking forward to having our own, efficient home soon. Soon may be a few more months, but soon. I am hoping that we can rest and renew during this transition time. Our transition space is certainly peaceful and nurturing.
