I haven`t posted in a while… Can`t say I have a good excuse for that really… Well I did some new bags, some new dresses… This lovely skirt I am wearing in the photos… But I really don`t feel like talking about that. The end of the summer came with such a nostalgic feeling; I feel it in every part of my being. Everything becomes quieter… It s almost like it comes with the rain, sneaks up on you. You can hear it in the hollowing of the wind.
The thing is that I`m moving again. I was looking forward to that all summer. New people, new city, new state… A chance to experience living in a different state while my son is still young. But now that the time has come to move I feel strange. I am moving from Mediterranean Rovinj to Gdansk on the Baltic sea. I really don`t have time to feel melancholic, I have everything to pack! But I do… I feel as this is an ending of some sort. I keep waiting for the frenzy and panic to kick in. Maybe it will be on the day I go to the airport. So many things are going through my head. I lived in Rovinj for a year and a half. Now we`re going to be living in Poland for a year, maybe longer. Something different, something new. Then why am I reacting this way?? Maybe it`s the lack of panic what`s troubling me. I just know that everything going to be all right. Maybe I`m not melancholic, maybe I am actually…; Oh my god am I being positive and optimistic for once in my life!!!??? This is such a new feeling that I was utterly confused and misread my symptoms for melancholy!!! I am not panicking about my son coming to the airplane with me. I am not panicking about my pets coming with me. I decided that they are going to be just fine on the plane even if they get all crazy. For once in my life I am not panicking!!!! Wow!!! The important thing is that we will all be together in Poland. My husband is already there. He is thrilled with the city and the people. He is thrilled with all of the activities there. He is even thrilled at how cold it is there. When he visited us here in the summer he hated how warm it was- it was 35-40 degrees Celsius here and 25 in Poland at the time. And I will get a chance to wear all of those light jackets I have and can`t wear here-because it`s too cold for them here in the winter and then it becomes too hot almost overnight. I am already looking at mohair and alpaca fabric for great warm coats to sew for me. Of course both of my sewing machines are coming with me.
Guess all I can do now is wait- until my paperwork is finished… Pack everything, well not even pack more decide what I will leave because I can`t take a lot of stuff with me…I should enjoy autumn before I come to the snows of the Baltic! When you think about it autumn is a great season, not too cold and not too warm. Lovely warm tones, great cardigans and jackets. I imagine Britain in the 1940s-1950s. That`s autumn for me. Pleated tweed skirts and knitted vests. And velour blazers!!You have so much more wardrobe options than summer, really. So instead of mourning the loss of hot weather we should be happy for all this clothes we can wear. I ‘we been thinking of snake patternes for my winter bags, and I tried it in this Rodolpho bag I am wearing in the photos. Now, well when I move I have to make a bigger version of my Rodolpho bag… Well that`s all from me, hopefully the next time I write it will be from Gdanjsk! Bye!
