Over the past couple of weeks we had more work done in our house. It was nice to be able to hire someone this time (we usually do the work ourselves) to tackle our stairs and upstairs hallway. He was fastidious! Everything was covered in plastic; it was like living in a Christo artwork. And now that it's done, I can finally hang some of our art that has been in storage forever.

I'm not tired of winter because we haven't had much of one yet. A little snow that hasn't stuck. Unseasonably warm. Today reached the mid 50sF and tomorrow they say will reach 60F. But tonight I went through some saved photos from the past year and a half and these are some of my favorites and they all happen to have been taken during summer. My cat, Hams, in the kitchen window, Strathmere beach taken from a kite, beets before steaming, my garden marigolds, detail of a painting of a cliff in Cornwall (a family heirloom), self-portrait, and bird on wire in the backyard.

A few pictures from the house I share with my husband Simon. The first two are in the living room. The shelves hold paintings by my brother, me and friends, as well as favorite movies and music. The shelves are reflected in a mirror we salvaged from the first house we bought. The third picture is a detail in our bedroom of favorite things I like to display. After that is a picture of a cabinet my husband rescued from a job and refinished as well as a lot of other lovely things in our dining room. And the last is a shelf he built for our small bathroom.
