day in, day out things

Friday fun day. A few random thoughts for the weekend:

day in, day out things

What am i reading? On a rainy Sunday in Queen Anne, i went to their little bookshop and picked out this staff favorite that has won like every award under the sun in a few countries. I am SO wanting to get LOST in it and that hasn't quite happened, the writing is lovely but I am really hoping i am pages away from never putting it down. otherwise i may succumb to running to the library for the next Emily Griffin novel which is my guilty pleasure.

What am i drinking these days? I am trying v hard to dive into WASHINGTON wines, and i have to say.. so far so good. I fell in love with Willamette Valley vineyards (and mainly Pinot Noirs) when i was out here years ago and now I am chomping at the bit to get to the vineyards of Columbia Valley. If only i had a babysitter...

What's a favorite sight in my house? I am trying desperately to get more and more excited about this space. So, I will be trying to blog about some favorite spaces or new uses of old things to encourage myself and anyone else restless in their space to find the things they DO love in their houses. I have been keeping this great pottery FULL of tomatoes since we moved and we all love it. it makes me happy just to see it, nevermind pop a few in my mouth.  Similarly we have been picking single stems of flowers and putting them in a tiny vases and i love love them. they make a room smile.

What you WON'T believe??

i bought this VERY bright, very tight (in a comfortable way) turquoise pants. i wanted to try new clothes out here because it is the perfect place to try things out because no one really stares at much of anything because two folks are RARELY dressed alike.  So i thought what the heck, i know NO ONE, be bright and tight. (please note the tags are still on... i'll be brave in a minute.)

and second, i baked. AND followed the recipe even on sugar and butter AND even for the love of my good baking friend Kim who told me banana bread brushed with a lil butter and sugar on top is the most delightful... i made this coconut banana bread brushed with brown sugar and butter and it was good!

Have a great weekend! Enjoy the little things!
