Yesterday Scott packed up and left…after almost the whole summer at our house (yep..we’ll miss him, his chirpy “Good morning”‘s and his texts to announce imminent arrival at hours like 7:30 a.m…eek). Bathroom number two upstairs is complete… Yay! To review, as R would say, the first part of the summer produced bathroom #1: which […]

A Perfect Summer Day….
Somehow these last days of summer seem like little gems that have to be enjoyed from beginning to end…and this one was no exception…luncheon with friends on their terrace… with a nearby calming water feature… everything delicious…the house looking beautiful… but really it’s the view that is so wonderful… and the company…thanks friends. And when […]
Wow…busy week around here…but kind of a miscellaneous week to make a narrative out of… It WAS a week with ART in it though…Elizabeth, Alex and I spent two days in Corrie’s summer studio (a generous offer on Corrie’s part)…she the first artist in residence whereby the CCC gallery is turned into a big studio […]
Summer. Got to try to live in the moment, so the narrative suffers. Here’s a digested version of what’s been happening in the far west: The beach. A week. So hot in the valley most all the beach views are misty and cool… and the sunsets were, well, muted, let’s just say… There was outside […]
The Bathroom is DONE!
I suspect the subject of our bathroom is a bit boring to you readers by now, but just to complete the thought…here is the process (a very short, digested version I might add…). It fascinates me to watch a room be ripped apart (so naturally I think it fascinates YOU…?) and then come together so […]
Works in Progress….
This weekend I got OUT of the bathroom… and INTO the studio… where, after looking at an old painting painted in memory of the lovely William Peyron, dishwasher at the Arbor Cafe for 6 years, reader, person of great good humor (sometimes old paintings are better than photographs for conjuring people up…this is called “I […]
Avoiding Chaos/Beach Weekend…
The bathroom construction at Court Street began heating up as the week drew to a close. After the first coat of concrete in the construction of the “pan” on the shower floor, came a rubber liner, with a bucket of water in it. This had to sit for 24 hours and then be inspected…all of […]
Well things are evolving over here…always a little more slowly than one imagines…but evolving nonetheless… Scott was here to do some wood stuff Vince came today to get the shower floor ready for tile… the big question now is paint color…??? MEANWHILE…outside we’re getting a new deck surface as the old deck was in […]
Not a momentous week, but like most of our weeks, filled with the lovely variety of things that make our lives…here’s what I’ve been up to: Check this out people…every Tuesday in May conservationist Tom Fuller will be working on the Hallie Ford Museum of Art’s native basket collection in the lobby so you can […]
It’s a work zone over here today. Mike’s crew arrived early to tear off the old roof… and then the plywood sheathing went on…and here’s Mike himself (hint: he isn’t 20, 30 40 or 50…) …the crew was well-supervised at our end… and by the end of their work day the front was ready to […]
