This week has been a roller coaster of emotions ranging from anxiety about getting the house ready for company in the midst of concerns about Grisabella's worsening health, to joy at seeing and being able to spend many days with my sister and friend, to heartbreak over the loss of our sweet Grisabella, to contented enjoyment of the sights of my city and gorgeous summer ...more

We still have quite a bit more to do, but I'm glad that we made a start. I'm grateful for all the work the previous homeowners did to make it nice, and for being able to look forward to having a lovely and relaxing space to enjoy throughout the summer. ...more

This week the boys (AKA Oscar and Felix, two of our three silly, beautiful cats) are at the top of my gratitude list for all the many ways they make us laugh. The other day they discovered some party hats and noisemakers I'd carelessly left sitting on a box in the basement, and on a few separate occasions we caught one or the other carrying them upstairs in order to play with (read: destroy) them. ...more
