I promised you a sunset so here it is.

While we're getting settled and cozy in our new- old house, me and Papa have the feeling it's not really home. We're being constantly reminded that it's not ours, and all the repair that needs to be done in here is still waiting, wainting ... The workload on the land is too big. At least now with Papa helping, the in-law can have a little rest... meaning, he's not obligated to start working at 5 am and stop at midnight...

Mariann birthday cake; The roof is fondant, the stairs a mint-chocolate and the trees a almond paste. The rest is buttercream and it was a chocolate cake. Yum!

Papa's talking of going anyway, not waiting to know if he's accepted and just go, try another career option and try again for med school at the end of the year (it'll then cut our choice of city from 4 to 1).

And you know what, I'm pretty tempted myself. The city we would go as a great reputation, community wise. A lot of place for families. Here... Well. People are getting older and older... And many of the ressources and activities are planed for tourists. There's a lot of nature, but little activities to do. I think we know all the park in a 50km radius by now!

And I admit; What is really tempting me, is that there's a Waldorf community nearby where Papa wants to go. (one of the few in Québec). There's a Waldorf public primary school (it's free) and, from what I have heard... It's a great place to call home.

But, it's all up in the air, right? Oh, the possibilities!

and to reply to Wulf: Yes, Mariann took that picture of my calf :)


  1. That cake is too cute!! I can imagine it is frustrating if you just don't feel at home in your "home". It sounds like you have some decisions to make. Blessings to you and your husband on making hard decisions.

  2. Will you make my birthday cake next year? I want one just like Mariann's! :)

    I just know soon enough, that your guys will find 'home'. Many blessings and lots of luck to you and your family, sweetheart.
