my week in objects (mostly).

April 1, 2022

1. library books.

{and having our branch consistently open.}

2. these violas.

{for looking like they might just have survived the freeze.}

3. this sunny corner.

{leggy week-old tulips and all.}

4. these tiny sprouts.

{for popping up.}

5. this pizza dough.

{and friday night.}

other things:

the great privilege of being here.

no goals, just vibes.

type lockdown and see what comes

i can’t really say.

wife and mom.

do you want a boring floor lamp or an ugly floor lamp?

ghosts at the liquor store.

the rule of civility in the face of oppression.

    Lovely photos, as always! And now I need to Pizza Night back into our weekly rotation 😉 Not sure when it fell off the menu, but it’s time to bring it back!

    Oh my thank you for the link to the On Being podcast with Kate DiCamillo. I have not yet read her books yet but I am so looking forward to them. About to read Charlotte’s Web with my ten year old and I remember how much I loved it as a child.

      Kate DiCamillo was one of my favorite authors as a child! The Tale of Desperaux is fantastic, and I highly recommend reading her other books with your child 🙂

    Love your links this week! The Kate DiCamillo podcast was so moving. I took my 55 year old self to the library last week and promptly checked out 2 of her books for the first time. The floor lamp article hit home too. I get the urge every October and am disappointed that choices are either dim or oversized and always ugly. The Samantha Hunt piece is like a time machine for me. Thanks for these and hope you have a peaceful weekend. Any more longboarding for you, Erin?
