A pictorial review of the week.
/ 1 /
Prettiest flowers I have ever seen growing out of a crack in the sidewalk.
/ 2 /
Campanula. Why do they remind me of toys, images and characters from my childhood in the early 80s?
/ 3 /
My beloved clematis burst into bloom this week.
Living room progress surges on.
/ 4 /
Evan spent most of the evenings this week scraping, and scraping, and scraping the 10 windows in the sunroom.
/ 5 /
More attention and commitment to detail - original hardware covered in layers of paint by decades of DIY homeowners without Evan's attention to detail. Soaked in baking soda and water, and scraped and polished. Like magic.
/ 6 /
Living room on lock-down - the sanding has begun.
/ 7 /
One wheel down, three to go on the antique industrial cart that we're turning into a coffee table (see here).
/ 8 /
Sully telepathically communicating.
/ 9 /
Dinner at Left Bank - a 16 oz porterhouse steak that I thought would be impossible to finish, but alas, was not.
/ 10 /
Dinner at home. An odd medley of ingredients in the fridge that actually turned out quite tasty and definitely unexpected - feta, cilantro, red onion, jalepeno, cider vinegar and lemon.
/ 11 /
Impromptu vinyl session inspires Hey Ladies dance.
A lot of Billy Joel, a little Jefferson Airplane, a lot of hip hop and some Mozart to wrap things up.

What a fun surprise to get this in the mail this week from my friend Penny - a down-to-earth, hilarious approach to parenting that I can really get behind.
/ 13 /
And some more parenting tips. This made me smile while waiting to take Sully in for blood work at the vet. Might have to pick up a copy.
These weekly roundups just reiterate how quickly time flies. Like woah, Nelly.
Hope you all had a great week.
