For the Dogs (and Cats)

I think our dog Boo is confused. While moving my office home was an adjustment for me, lately we’ve been noticing that she’s having her own adjustment. Or at least it seems that way. Because James has worked from home for so long, she’s accustomed to sleeping away the day…

Not Just A Movie

James and I have succumbed to binge watching. Call it a side-effect of being indoors so much. I was always amazed when people said they were doing that. How did you have the time? I just could not imagine. Yet here we are. Sitting on the sofa. Not only binge…

Walk of Shame

One benefit of being pretty much stuck inside all day is that I find myself outside walking through the neighborhood. Which means I’m actually walking and not just pretending I walk. James has been doing the same and came home one afternoon to ask if I’d been down a street…

The Things You See Inside

By now, most of us are in week two or three of our shelter-in-place experience. Working from home for the first time. Having to home school kids. Wondering if day-drinking is considered a hobby. And while the weather here has been relatively crappy, there have been a few days nice…

Panic! Panic! Panic!

Panic! Panic! Panic! You do not call me when I’m in New Orleans. That’s been the cardinal rule since James and I started traveling there 20+ years ago. And in a city where breakfast is as likely to start with a mimosa or Bloody Mary as it is with coffee,…

Hotel Perks (Quirks)

Hotel Perks Quirks I don’t think I travel a lot. I’m certainly not in the realm of those who travel every week for work. But every year I start adding things up and realize I’m moving around a lot more than I think. (As I type this I’m thinking “How…

I Killed It!

I Killed It! I would like to say I have a green thumb. Hell, I’d be happy to say I have a brown thumb. However, for some reason, me and plants just don’t get along. Which has been making me chuckle this summer as James and I have both been…

When Inspiration Strikes

Does an architect’s brain ever shut off? I just spent three days at a conference in Denver, and I could probably draw you a fairly accurate layout of the spaces we used. Not that I want to. But as I was sitting there listening to speakers and even meeting with…
