    I know it's been a quiet week on the blog, but it's not for lack of material. I actually have all sorts of photos I want to post of the puppies we've been doggysitting and the before and after shots from recent house-projects, but my computer is on the fritz and won't consent to any uploads. In the meantime, here is an internet llama do-hicky (via wyn), which translates your words into hilarious llama font.

    gray house/yellow house

    We can't afford to paint the house for a while, but we've been talking about yellow or gray to go with the new red door...
    Bungalows across the nation—like this cheery example in Jacksonville, Florida—reflected Arts & Crafts principles with their low, sloping roofs and informal one-story designs.

    painting stones

    i spent my sunday with eli painting rocks on the front porch. each rock is a game piece for an elaborate "universe" inspired game that he plays with the kids at work. we got really into it, made two trips to the craft store, and ended up with enough sets for 18 kids to play at once.

    ...and some great homemade examples (there are tons of resources out there for building your own coop). "urban" chicken coops are really common around durham and i'm a little fascinated with them at the moment.


    i've been arranging the guest room with pretty objects in hopes of luring some visitors.

     i've started doing some freelance administrative work for a landscape design company. it's been nice to meet some more people and do something productive (not that rearranging the furniture and picking flowers are not productive...).
