Sunday Evening Comforts of Home
All's back in place now. Winter curtains have been hung, and the red, white, and blue of summer pillows exchanged for the warmer tones that comfort against the dreary grey rain outside. This is where I've been sitting since everyone left this afternoon -- I'm working my way through that stack of papers you seen on the ottoman, bottom right. . . and remembering the pleasures of helping my daughter knit her first sock, watching my son-in-law whip up Eggs Benny for us all, and imagining how thrilled Nola will be to hug her Mom and Dad after the week apart.
Last weekend in Vancouver, I spotted these cushions in CB2 and bought them to freshen up the winter collection here -- only when I snapped this photo did I realize how perfectly they echo the painting above them, my friend Alison's Broken Forest, better seen in this post.
enjoyed the opera, remembered Paris windows my granddaughter could love, took time to appreciate the wildlife surrounding me, and enjoyed spending time with visiting family.
Now I think I'll curl up to watch the malevolence of Glenn Close's lawyer character in Damages, relaxing before the onslaught of another busy week. I hope you've enjoyed your weekend as well and are almost ready for the week ahead. What are you remembering or looking forward to this Sunday night?
