I just started reading this last night, and it keeps making me think of my ridiculously disciplined fish of a college roommate, Connie. I never understood how she managed to swim upwards of six hours a day and be an over-achieving student at the same time, or how she ate like a linebacker but was as lean as a dancer (probably had something to do with the six hours of daily swimming). Her last name (maiden) was spelled K E U N G, but pronounced almost exactly like mine, so to limit confusion, she had a few swim caps with K E R N on the side.
Anyway, I'm liking the book so far; it's beautifully written and illustrated. Lovely on three counts: as something to read, as an object, and as a reminder of my friend.

Finally hitched a ride to Ikea this past weekend and picked up a few Honefoss mirror sets. They're sold in packs of ten, and I've used five boxes so far. Trying to decide if I should stop here, or go ahead and use the sixth.
Two more things:
1. Yeah, there's no cover on that outlet behind the couch. We should probably do something about that.
2. That lampshade is way too small for that lamp. Don't worry; it's a placeholder.

This is, by far, the loveliest section of Home Depot.
We've been on a bit of house plant binge of late: succulents, ivy, polka dot plants, violets, aloe, a fiddle leaf fig, a Yucca, and then some. It's nice to have some green inside (the house needed it), and I suppose we'll be breathing a little better, too. Now I just need to stay on top of plant care.
