I took his little measurements!


The best food in the world

Looks beautiful. Tastes beautiful.

What to eat when you get home at 10:30

Take an egg. Scramble it.

Slice some cheese and put the slices on a flour tortilla with the scrambled egg. Salt and pepper. Roll it up and toast your little burrito.

Stick it in a bowl with some leftover greens, plus a few pieces of sausage left over from your shweethart's dinner.

Add avocado.

Pour a nice glass of water (preferably in a Mason jar). Treat yourself to some lemon, cuz if you don't—who will?

There you go! Now take your bowl into the living room and flop on the couch and watch Planet Earth.

Later: chocolate ice cream.

Bike friends

Want to hear something weird? The other day Greg went out to unlock his bike in the morning and he found a beautiful red rose in his basket.

And all his special bike decorations had been removed!



Sometimes our bikes like to go parking together.

I lost the other glove yesterday.

Board collection

We are collecting boards; so far we have these two (photographed on the bed for a change of pace):

Art from the street.




Nice! But we are still going to use it to make bookshelves.

Found an easel!

A nice one, too!

Good for telling the time.

Classic styles! Thanks Greggy.

Saturday coffee

To go.

From "the Heath Ledger place."

Nassau Avenue mystery

Sometimes I catch the bus here.

I have noticed something very odd.

What the—?

Black Beauties

Now these are in my life.


Oh ha! You can see my reflection in the toes (also the reflection of the BREAD planter)! Shiny shiny man loafers are my new best friends.

I found a hunk of rusty metal!


I will put it with the others!

Most best birthday present!

Hudson's Bay blanket! The real deal!

This morning I lay in bed and sang coureur-de-bois songs!

J'entends le moulin ticka ticka tacka,
j'entends le moulin taaaaacka!
Tick ticka tacka tick tick tack,
ticka taaaaacka
ticka taaaaacka. . . 

Etc. It was awesome.

Thanks Greg!

Poker night!

Greg is a shark. (sharp?)

We had a flock of sheep cookies! Made by Anna! (Also lime juice and rum.)

Also much cheese.

And cake.

And everything!

That was fun.

Happy Valentine's Day to me!

I found this rose on the street.

Found on the street. Yep.

The same principle applies to skorl pictures

My friend Beth sent me this picture. She says she took it in the park the other day (she knitted the sweater herself, and the skorl modeled it for her).

She is a very talented girl is Beth. Quite the skorl benefactress.

Baby pictures because why not?

Flashback to Christmas! Samuele is gettin' some work done:

Do not disturb!

He's editing some labels for me.

Restoration Home

Someone should probably get me this book for my birthday.

Very nice.

I like old-timey pencils!

In fact, I am a sucker for them.

These are blue.
