may 18 :: what's going on
Spring (especially since sun came back out today) is slipping into summer at breakneck speed as it always does here in the middle of the country. N is already on summer vacation. It's J's last full week of school, but she's already informed them they're done with homework. Lucky devil. Remember how fun and free those last few days before break felt?!
In the last couple of days, I repainted the kitchen- white with a very light tan color wash. I was tired of the yellow. Now I need to find about ten yards of fabulous yet extremely affordable fabric to make cushion covers for a little danish couch we moved into the breakfast room.
We went to the zoo with a few of N's little friends today. The weather was perfect. She rode the carousel. We had a picnic. The geese pestered us. We watched the sea lion show. For my local friends, here's a coupon for the zoo that doesn't expire until October.
I am reading The Lacuna and loving it. It was last month's book club book and I didn't get it done in time. This month is Middlesex, which I hear is really good but "heartbreaking."
I think I'm beginning to have some shutter issues with my trusty Canon. It has frozen up quite a bit lately, and I have to take the battery out to get it to wake up. During a recent photo shoot even! I think it's time to start a camera upgrade savings account. Ouch.
Oh lordy! I hear The Hangover on the television in there. Gotta go, that's one seriously funny movie...
I'll be back soon. xo.
