Spring, Spring, I love Spring. I’m out on a deck in Suffolk, VA wearing a tee-shirt (and pants! never fear!) and it is the most perfect, beautiful temperature ever. Did you know a temperature could be beautiful? Me neither but once I’m in it, I remember.
Having a week off is such a tonic. I love having nothing to do, especially when I know it’s a temporary thing. I do not think I could live the life of a lady of leisure, but it is quite nice to mimic it for a week.
I’m staying at this amazing home in Suffolk, which is owned by two people who are completely redoing it. And it looks like such a huge project. Originally, they wanted to open a B&B in the future, but I think that plan is shelved. But it’s amazing to see a huge-scale project and all the effort and talent that goes into making it a success. The kitchen is absolutely beautiful (and done!)- amazing tilework, stone floor, granite counter tops (and not in a cheesy, “let me sell you a condo” type of way, just high quality, beautiful “Food and Wine” type of kitchen.
Tonight, I’m going to go to the Chrysler Museum of Art for Wine and Jazz, as long as Mechen gets off work in time. Well, I’m going to go early and check it out. Then, maybe, if they finish clutching in the port shaft (ha, ha, like I know what that means!), we’ll go together.
