Around here....








Weekend at the grandparents in Suisun - lush where it's irrigated, brittle where it's not. Cousins, books and puzzles, Anthony's risotto. My monkeys have run off with other grandparents now - for a week. I'm pretending not to be lonely. So far, not doing a very good job of it.

Friday, I'm in love....



Dana Komjaty is making drawings every day and posting them on her blog because she's beautiful, amazing, honest, and generous. Can you believe it? We should all be like that. More drawings here.
Thank you, Dana!

Cute! Right?
There are lots of funny little Lavender Strawberry Sachets in the shop. You can even make some yourself, if you want.... buy a kit, or email me and I'll send the pattern along to you....

Around here, the chickens knock on the kitchen door and come on in.

Around here....







Around here, there are days when nothing much happens (you've all seen the pictures of the sky). But, some days, my sister comes back from 2 years in Kazakhstan, and the whole family comes over, and the Monday blog post is a day late and I don't care.

Friday, I'm in love....

I'm so in love with this space.... Claes and Melinda Bergman's house in Phoenix. On Apartment Therapy this week.

What can I help you with?

Fin seems never to tire of talking to Siri. She's very tolerant, but does get a little snippy with him after a while.

Friday, I'm in love....

I'm in love with short stories by Aimee Bender. Willfull Creatures is heartbreakingly beautiful and a liiittle fuuucked-up. Like most things I love to read are.... You should listen to Matt Malloy reading her story, Loser, on This American Life. It's a treat.

Around here, we are not too old to go on the rides.

I'm sitting here waiting for coffee to be ready and wondering whether I'll get my grownuppy-businesslikey-goal-oriented act together today. I know I'm a hailstorm of talent and awesomeness and that's great for everyone, but it would be cool if my website were also up to date. FTP crapola.... and other made up words.
