quiet sunday

I also made the curtains for the kitchen and put them up, so we don’t have to look out at the dreary concrete highrises all day long and all the people who live there don’t have to look at us.

Here’s a picture to give you an idea. It’s not the greatest, but I know you now well enough to know you’re going to ask!

I like to keep things pretty simple around here.

And if you’re wondering, yes, yes, yes, I miss the wonderful light we had at the old place, but I am learning to appreciate the coziness of our new home here, with its crooked floors, exposed beams, and the way it draws us in.

    Your curtains are womderful, simple is usually best. They seem to let in a lot of light.
    My friends flew to Italy on Friday (Rome); they’re going to get on a ship somewhere and go to Sardinia, Lisbon, Palmas de Majorca and then back to good old Bayonne, NJ (so much more convenient than NYC). They absolutely LOVE cruises and go 2-3 times a year. I’d rather spend two weeks on a beach.
