So this won't be a "talky" kind of post, but rather a "picturey" kind of post. Pictures of cabinets. oooohhhh ahhhhh thrilling! It was my first do-it-yourselfy thing and it turned out all right. Nothing went wrong. Everyone involved is still on friendly terms. There were no trips to the ER--which is my definition of … Continue reading Kitchen Cabinet Project pics
Spent the weekend finishing up the kitchen cabinets. (They turned out beautiful, too. Pictures tomorrow, promise!) And on Sunday rewarded myself with a luscious "Day of Sloth" with the Sunday NY Times. I haven't been getting the Times lately because I was finding it hard to finish one before the next Sunday rolled around and … Continue reading Finding a Hot Track in the NYTimes

Let's start this gratitude party with a big shout-out to my Happy Hour Yoga class tonight, shall we? Those dedicated, disciplined souls who 1) Came out in drippy, icky weather, and 2) Did one hellava awesomely rajasic practice and were sweating bullets by the end, holy-moly. Usually it's a mellowish, end-of-the-workweek practice on … Continue reading Friday Gratitude

Happy that I made it through Day 2. But tomorrow is Friday, and I like my glass of … Continue reading Clean: Day 2
