ikea haul

Some rain, then record-setting heat. Yesterday we had a fruitful trip to Ikea and dinner at P.F. Chang’s. I am loving my new camera.
I badly want to travel and expand my experiences. We both want to move to a larger city, maybe/hopefully/eventually near the ocean…

summer begins

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010


My parents left for a trip to Hawaii on Thursday. The three of us siblings are watching the house, dog, bird and fish while they are gone. Before they left though we had a nice early-summer evening outside with berries, beer and bugs.

phoenix roll

We went out for sushi on Tuesday afternoon. One roll we ordered called the ‘phoenix roll’ arrives at the table flaming.

The chicken-man was walking along alone, waving at cars that honked at him.

stormy May

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I hurt my knee falling down while running in February. The healing has been slow and and the skin there is still new and sometimes sore.

The last few days we’ve rearranged the living room a little bit and the bedroom completely — it’s like a fresh start to the space. Things flow more and feel more inviting. Improving my environment is a big priority for me right now, it makes me feel much better to have a space that resonates with me. It’s hard to explain, but when things aren’t arranged well or in a way that feels natural it can make the whole room feel subtly off/uncomfortable.

More house pictures will be forthcoming this month once we get the office improved the way we want (on the hunt for a loveseat right now).

weekend of wine

Monday, May 3rd, 2010



A weekend of lots of talking and wine. We finished a bottle of Boxhead White between us on Saturday, and had more still (red) after that. Then a walk today and some Indian food. Another weekend day would be great.
