Weekend of Freedom
Now that our ceiling is finished, Matt and I are enjoying our weekends again. Instead of awaking with a sense of dread, we now have no trouble sleeping in and making buttermilk pancakes for breakfast. (Actually, that would be Matt making ‘cakes for breakfast—he’s the breakfast cook…and lately, the main cook in the house) Today, we had a fun-filled “date day” planned. We live in what seems like the middle of nowhere, but somehow this is a mere fifteen minutes away from a vibrant, prestigious liberal arts college and quaint (although tiny) college town. The Williams College Museum of Art had a symposium on the intersection of art and science, interesting both of us very much. And one of the lectures was on origami (if you knew me as a child, you would realize its importance). So we went and learned and pretended we were still naïve college kids…and stole some cookies on the way out. There was also Indian buffet thrown in for good measure. It was the first weekend in many months without the ceiling project hanging over our heads.
The other good news is the weather. Even though it was chilly all week, we were in for a clear, beautiful day of sunshine and 50 degrees! I checked on all of my bulbs, and they are just peeking above the ground. I think it’s nearly time to plant some greens—I can’t wait for garden fresh veggies.
And I even had time to work in my studio...it looks busy, right?
