I'm still floored that Tory is moving in soon. I'm beyond excited. We're both so all in here, it's amazing. We are so good together. This life we're building is going to be fantastic.
He used to have an artisan business building automated toys, little sailboats riding waves, which you can see here
. He made a huge one once, which you can see in motion here
. He stopped for various reasons, including the fact that the last bit of hand sanding he had to do was too hard on his hands, but we're going to start it back up together as a way of getting some extra money so that we can live simply and comfortably together, perhaps without me needing to get a "job." We'll see how it works out, but I'm excited to make plans for building a life together.
He came over last night and we made dinner for the whole family, then retreated to his place at the end of the night. He's coming back over tonight, and we have grand plans. Pizza night! I haven't done a proper pizza night in a long time, perhaps since going gluten free. I've been eating a bit of wheat here and there, and I'm so going to eat my own pizza tonight. Yum! I'm also making a lemon cornmeal cake with a lavender glaze, which will be served with fresh strawberries, and we're going to have a fire in the backyard. Yay!
On Wednesday, Tory and I are going to take the kids to the Marine Life Center to visit my darling Casey and her octopuses, et cetera. Kenna is going to join us, which is rad. I was just chatting with her about her upcoming trip to visit her grandmother in Alaska. They get to take the ferry there! So jealous! I'm going to henna her right before she leaves. I love her so much. I'm excited to see her again this week.
Life is so good.
