annual moving entry...


changed the name of my etsy shop (took longer than I would have thought), designed and posted a new banner (and have this great new business card idea),

                                                                                  checked out a few avenues to sell photos on the internet and began that process, found this great eco-dish-scrubby online, designed a flyer inviting people to my first sacred photo session, outlined the 8-week workshop, compiled an equipment list, began to catalog the prints I'm going to offer for sale, and started packing my house to move.  finally got the cat fixed,

opened a new bank account because my bank of 15 years left town, started the process of getting my direct deposit switched over, shipped an Etsy order for my kid's chapbook (^_^),

                                                                                     and kept my household running smoothly.


packed boxes, took the kid to play practice, visited with a friend, did laundry, picked the kid up and went to the 1st - 3rd grade's art opening at a local gallery with his buddies from the play, then went back to one of their houses to hang out and visit.


packed boxes.  planned food/clothing/bathing needs for the next few days so the transition is as smooth as possible.  39 hours 'til the lease-signing, just want to be there already.  sure, who wouldn't want to avoid the heavy lifting, sweaty, grunting, knocking about part, but my constant moving is probably the only real exercise I get.  my annual cardio and weight-training regime - moving all my furniture and ephemera from one place to another.  there's so much to do over the next couple of days, and I'll probably have to be dis-connected during at least some portion of it.  how will I survive?!  well, see you all in the new place, I guess ~


  1. It just keeps going, right. You are awesome Mama.
    I love the new banner, it is very you!

    1. great, right? it's a photo of a chalk painting the boy did when he was smaller, with the colors inverted. I love it! you are great example to follow - thanks for the inspiration ♥

  2. Have a great move!I love the picture of your kitty

    1. he's so handsome! who needs a boyfriend when I'm surrounded by such fine examples of masculine energy? thanks for the vibes : )

  3. Your cat reminds me of our late kitty, Sister, or Sissy. She was also known as Blondini the Great! And what a handsome son; you can see he has that attitude he'll need to become an artist!

    The banner is GOR.GE.OUS. All my favorite shades. Same as your blog, love me some blue night sky. When I was a kid, we lived on a hill, no ambient light at all. The stars were deeper then, layers behind layers... Thanks also for your kind words about my poem on Poets United. Geez, I didn't know they picked "winners"!

    Final word, on behalf of cat: "Where did you put my junk? Are you hiding it? Me wants it all back!!" Amy

    1. poor little Taco - he was a trooper, but he did pee on my bed the morning after. I couldn't blame him too much, though, mad as I was! yaay - glad you like the banner and blog colors, I am partial to the starry kind of blue-layered skies as well. my boy is a revelation... thanks for stopping in!

  4. LOVE the banner and the card, too. I'm a sucker for the blues and violets! Was your cat broken? Ooooh, THAT kind of fixed. Looks like he's protecting something that isn't there. We had a male who used to chase our female cat and we'd laugh about "shooting blanks."

    Now, about your son. He has the look of a prankster, a genius, and a little bit of... I'm not sure. Just INTERESTING! You don't see that in a lot of photos of children these days. They usually have vacant stares, and he half-winks, like he's flirting. What a cutie!! Amy
