Weekend Recap

This weekend was full of surprises. Surprise one was finding myself awake until 2am twice in a row. (Once at the Lithuanian Hall, and once in my own home, painting the living room shades of tan with Phil). That one is only surprising because I'm apparently known for being something of an early-to-bed old lady. Perhaps I should get some farm animals to ensure proper validity to my early-to-bed-early-to-rise mantra...? Surprise two was waking up to construction in the lot next door, resulting in our entire house shaking non-stop from all the dumptrucks and tractors dragging dirt back and forth. At least the inside of our house is now cozy...even if it is vibrating from 9-5. It's funny how different a room looks when it's no longer all white. Tan is not a revolutionary color, but it's just dark enough to offset all the art in white frames we've somehow accumulated, and just deep enough to feel warmer and cozier. Also, just distracting enough to make our ugly furniture look more adult...though it's not represented that well in this photo. Also a big step in the direction of living-room-perfection was our decision to discard the TV (it's now upstairs instead). Funny how much happier I feel drinking tea and reading books (currently, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep") when the only technology in a room is a stereo. Almost like we mean to live here long term. keyword: Almost.
