Kelly has most of our stuff packed. We’re more or less down to the things we will need in the days before we fly and our first days in Toronto (because we’re arriving before the truck.) While she’s been doing that I’ve been working on my novel, teaching up a storm, and making efforts to find good homes for our passes to the incandescent Open Door Yoga.
The remainder is what we’re calling “camping stuff.” You know the drill. Two plates, two forks, one pot, two towels, a suitcase each of clothes…
… and of course the cats and a mountain of electronics.
If you are local, there is still stuff you could have for free, just for the low low price of coming to get it: there’s a wooden bedside table with one drawer, a quite pretty wooden shelf, a very efficient–if somewhat heavy–Ikea desk with two shelves, a trio of lamps and a couple of plants.
Wow! Toronto! Best of luck to you both! What district will you be in?
Downtown–near Queen Street. I’ve been meaning to write you, to say that the move is interfering with any chance I’d have to make your launch. But… will there be a Toronto book launch?
It’s always the electronics, isn’t it? And the chargers, etc. But I know what you mean about camping stuff. When I moved from Philly to Portland I came by air with two cats, one bag of clothes, and a duffel with a sleeping bag, a towel, a tiny lamp, and one set of dishes. The truck with my stuff didn’t arrive until the fourth day after I did. Very dull days . . . But wonderful that you are so far along with preparations. Very efficient!
Hurrah for efficiency! The movers are here right now.
Shows how far behind I am in my blog-reading–I didn’t know you were moving! Is this permanent?
Yep! K has a shiny new job and we are here for the foreseeable!
