This is love: Alan spent all day Friday helping me tidy the house in preparation for our first dinner party.
This soft, cuddly guy just jumped up into my lap.
This morning a gas line was run from the street to our house! No more $900.00 deliveries of heating oil for us!

Continuing on my theme from yesterday, I can be an all-or-nothing person. Today I moved a few small stacks of books to the living room. It’s a small step towards the calm, orderly home I so desire.
Organizing this cabinet that I just installed last night is bringing back memories of when I used to have things together. Five years ago I got married, started law school, and moved into the house with no closets. It’s taken me time to negotiate my relationship with Alan’s stuff, and we’ve moved twice in the last year. Now we’re settled, and I’m organizing. I feel like my old self, and it feels wonderful ️
Sometimes simple adornment is my fav: ponytail, gold studs, initial “e” necklace.
Tea for one with some of my treasures: my Marimekko teapot, my Le Creuset honeypot, and the handmade mug from Japan given to me by Alan’s cousin’s wife, Kaz!

Looking down after my morning walk.
P.S. The prompt “look down” has had me humming Les Miz all day!
