Now You See It, Now You Don't


George is on vacation this week and busy completing various projects around the house. He finally finished our computer hutch! The computer finally has a permanent home, and it is not in the corner of our bedroom. Having the computer in our bedroom made me feel like a college student all over again, and not in a good way; rather like the claustrophobic feeling of having all of your possessions confined to one small room. Also transporting me back to college (and pre-college days), but in a good way, is my new Pandora station. I forgot how much I used to enjoy The Sundays, Lisa Loeb, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cranberries. It's all coming back now - those days of driving around in my first car, listening to cassette tapes over and over and over.

It is cold and overcast (hence the bad lighting in the pictures above). We missed the eclipse last night due to the cloud cover. My fingers are freezing as I type, so it is either time to make another cup of tea, stand in front of the fire or do some dishes to warm up. Especially before my fingers really get cold when we go ice skating this afternoon. I have a feeling my hands (and my bottom) will spend some time on the ice because I've never ice skated before. I'll try to take some pictures so we can laugh about it together.

Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer is playing. I think I will go and kiss my cabinet maker.



Update: The Pandora station just got better... ah, The Smiths. Definitely a thumbs up on that one. Marjorie might gag, but I bet Jerry would agree.

  3. I'm swooning over your new computer hutch...Gorgeous!!!
    Here's one way we are not alike, as my husband does not know which end of the hammer is up. Give that man a big kiss and count your blessings!!!
    It's chilly and gray here today too. Yuk. We have retreated to the bed.
    And I love that song, yay for The Sundays and The Cranberries too...that stuff transports me to another place and time.

  4. that is just awesome. I fantasize about my husband being able to do that, but alas. It's not to be. I have to go check out Pandora now and be one of the cool kids.

  7. Ah! Memory Lane .... You must have been in college about the time I was living in Germany and loving the Cranberries. I love the video. I reminds me a little of Europe. I drove cross-country with the soundtrack to Reality Bites in the cassette player - over and over and over .... Good memories ;). I wonder if I still have that cassette somewhere ....

    Love the cabinet. It's just gorgeous. I'd love to have something like that in my livingroom.

  8. You have ice skating in your blood, don't worry! The Hunt side of our family spent much time on the blades, and your aunt Jan was quite good until...... another story.
    Mom and I saw part of the eclipse while on our walk. Sorry you had cloudiness.
    Great cabinets George!
    Love
    Dad

  11. Ditto everything Kate said. I am going to look for the Cranberries and the Sundays later and finally listen to the Smiths.

    I am looking for craft storage/computer hutch thinga mabobbies right now and am not finding it. "It" is in your living room! I will have to make do with Office Depot schlock or (this is my hope) something at the thrift store or a yard sale.
