still after silence

i have been silent for a while. time flies. weather constantly changing. this is what is happening.

:: i'm starting work next week. big changes coming up.

:: one change is that we hired a lovely lady to clean our house every week. she started yesterday, and since i'm not working yet it was kind of strange to have someone else go nuts with the soap in my dirty kitchen drawers (yup, she went through everything) while i ran errands. ok, honestly, it was strange, but mostly it was awesome to return home.

:: especially because i've been sorting everything in the past few weeks. our clothes, toys and kitchen ware, and washed every pillow case, throw, blanket and basically everything that could fit into the washing machine. this house is so organized and clean you almost feel you should be whispering not to disturb it. luckily my boys will make it feel like home before i can whisper 'take your muddy shoes off before you come in'.

:: plus i had my last exam of the semester. thought i better finish what i could, since i spent an intense semester (and money) studying for an english teaching degree. before i decided to drop out, because, really, i'm not going to be a teacher (for a whole lot of reasons that i will spare you).

:: but all that time i didn't spent blogging and commenting was not only used sorting and organizing. i've watched movies too, and finally got around to check out the 'mad men'. and watched 'the kids are all right' the other day. which i loved (even if i did feel terribly sad for mark ruffalo's character. i know i'm not objective here, since i have a celebrity crush on this guy, but still, does he really deserve them to be so hard on him...?)

:: also, i didn't photograph much lately, but those i did take seem to show very well where i'm at right now. taking in the quiet days at home, in the still, before the boys get home. it'll be different now. i hope we'll like it. but at least it will be a lot cleaner :)

hope you're enjoying your week.

ps: aren't the new chicks adorable?


  1. The chicks are so adorable!!

    A couple of congrats are in order for you. Yahoo... on the cleaning lady- a treat in itself. I didn't know you were looking for a job. What will you be doing? I hope you enjoy it.
    Do you think you can send your gal over to my place to clean?!
    Big hugs my friend!xo

  2. The baby chicks are adorable. I don't know why but I have a corner of my heart reserved for baby chicks.
    Enjoy the pleasant feeling of having a WHOLE house ALL clean at the same time. You will find yourself tiddying up for her before she comes. There is a special place in heaven for people like her that make our lives a little easier.

  3. So glad you found a job and a good cleaning lady! Hope the transition to the new rhythm will be smooth for all of you.
