Here's a great photo of Amsterdam. I didn't really enjoy Amsterdam when we were there a couple of years ago, but I did like Holland. Looks good from the air, though.
You know I love lists. Here's a good one.
I was telling Middle that I want this juicer, Middle was telling me that his friend S has it and they are afraid of it. It's too complicated for me to explain but they fear bodily injury.
This chart is SPOT ON. (We don't say "spot on" in Tuvalu. I am practicing for London.)
Someday we will have to rip out our newish bathroom. It is infuriating, believe me, but the tile was installed incorrectly and we will, eventually have a wet ceiling. We may right now. That's not the point. The point is I'm going the cheap route next time.
Oh, Fog Linen, I love you/I hate you.
Oh, The Meat House, where I purchased an expensive gift card for my Ma, which is now closed for "renovations" but which actually seems to be part of a larger issue as the customer service number for the main company is disconnected...oh, The Meat House, you doth pith me off.
Nice runner, eh? I mean, I am not particularly a Nate Berkus fan or anything, but I like it. You can file that under future home improvements as well. The carpet in my room and on the stairs is shot.
On to flickr/on flickr...
It's Asian week in our kitchen. We challenged K to make us food from China/Korea/Japan and he has delighted us each evening.
Miso soup! From actual miso - not instant.
We keep the utensils handy.
Look! I'm keeping some plants alive! Barely!
I finally made Oldest's favorite Christmas cookies.
- Which reminds me...even though I am not a sweet lover...the holiday season is over and I seem to have acquired some poundage I'm not comfortable with. I've made a decision to be more serious about my walk to and from the office which is about .8 of a mile each way. Sometimes I don't walk if it's icy or if I feel lazy and that has to stop. The other problem with that walk, the big problem with that walk is my shoes. I wear my work shoes and that is a mistake. I currently have about four pairs that need new heels. I am wrecking my shoes. What I should be doing is wearing sneakers.
And, so, I am on the hunt for some black on black Nikes as the offerings above, which the internet is awash with, will not entice me to take a single step. You can't believe I'm talking about a form of exercise, can you? I have a wedding to attend in May and wish to be more comfortable on the beach this summer. Blogging as vehicle of accountability.
Here I am playing the matching game I created for my tiny cousin! It was a great success.
And here is someone modeling my hair cut and color.
I feel obligated to mention, as two people asked me about it this week, that I do not color my hair. This IS the color of my hair. I colored my hair for 30 years and am done now. Okay?
I did this with our table. People are adjusting. It's a free dining room renovation!
2014 feels so full of promise. Sort of.
