road trip

Pin It

Just got back from a quick(!) trip to the Madison, WI, area to attend a baby shower for my college housemate, studio pal, and TAM classmate (yes, I remember you sitting behind me discussing j.crew - I learned a lot! :))

It was wonderful to have an opportunity to visit with her in person, especially after 6 years of almost exclusively electronic communication.

I am so pleased that Melanie is joining the ranks of parenthood. I have no doubt that she and husband Andy will make excellent parents, and that older furry brother Thomas will do just fine with the new babe in the house.

I also find it refreshing to encounter another similarly granola-crunchy person - cloth diapering and organically oriented. Even though our future communication may remain much in the realm of the virtual world, I do enjoy it!

domestic bliss

Pin It

As I sit typing, my counter top is free of dirty dishes. Why? Not because they have been washed, but because they are waiting in the dark confines of the new Dishwasher!

I wouldn't have thought that having a mechanical dishwasher would bring such pleasure to my life. I feel like a queen, as I sit listening to the machine whirr away the dirt. Having grown up with a dishwasher, it has been an adventure (although, by no means arduous) to wash all my dishes by hand for the past 6 years.

We are 2/3 of the way to a black appliance kitchen. Well, if a black microwave counts, then we are 3/4 of the way.

Ah, what a luxurious life I lead!
