Turning the new house into our home

Got some stuff done at the new place! For the most part it’s still just boxes and I’m still half-dead, but I did get the fridge magnet-ed and my tea/coffee hutch set up. Definitely made it feel like home to me, even if we haven’t got our bed in there yet. 😉

Sorry I’ve missed the last few days of posting; the move has really been all I could do. The stress has calmed down now, though.

See you tomorrow.

And when I say “writerly life”, I mean my life, because I’m never not a writer. Wheee double negatives in English! Ahem. Anyway. The Writing Schedule Different schedules create different diets in
