I love to decorate and change things......it is a passion. My latest project is to make the above closet into an office. This is a closet in the second bedroom/sitting room, where I spend most of my time. Right now my desk, etc. takes up a good deal of space in this already tiny room, so I have great hopes to transform the room. I shall keep you posted on the progress.
We had gone for several weeks with no snow and then several feet in two days. My plow guy was here five times. No snow lately, but it is slippery walking, which I do a great deal of here.
I have found a place for the Grayling, the dog, when I go away. They love her there, although they did describe her as a bit "velcroy", but were delighted when I called recently to make a booking. And after months and months, I am finally able to let her off leash in the park where I walk her every morning, although this involves a pocket full of biscuits. She seems to realize now that if she wanders and does not come when I call her that she goes back on the leash.
Here is a picture of her in the cat's bed, which Fellini refuses to sleep in since I washed it, but Grayling finds it to be a rather nice pillow.
MOVIES - I have even been to the theater and seen movies on a BIG SCREEN. As you know, I mostly rely on Netflix for my entertainment, so it was quite a culture shock to go to the theater. I saw "The Last Quartet", "Hitchcock" and "Lincoln"....all good, yet all too long.
BOOKS - I had read Privileges by Jonathan Dee which I liked, so went back to read some of his earlier books. Just finished Palladio, which was well written, but way too long. It reminded me of Atlas Shrugged.
I am now in memoir stage reading The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe, which is very good, and What I thought I Knew by Alice Eve Cohen.
