I need to do something with my photos too, but it sounds like a LOT of work. (and time!) I hate frustrations, minor though they are, and lipstick is very important. I've worn Clinique Heather Moon for years and would be devastated if they discontinued it. It's difficult to find that certain shade/sheen that matches our favorite. (and Clinique doesn't have that horrible lipstick smell) Those rocks are very pretty, but I have no idea what they are. I can't believe you're still dealing with that oven!! Geeze.

The colors in the bookends were beautiful! As you said, what a waste of a lot of glass and time. I adore your vanity and carousel, so clever. Where are you in The Martian? Even you talking about it has made me want to go back and re-read it. I don't know if you'll love it as much as I do, but even if you only like it half as much, that's something! (hard to recommend books because all our tastes are different)You have an amazing view!

The tomato paste, peanut butter and chili powder are the prime ingredients in what's called Mafe or sauce arachide in Senegal and Cote D'Ivoire, respectively. A very popular combination of flavors and SO DELICIOUS. That is an amazing sunset!! We're getting lots of them this summer. :)
That is a cool looking car; I would take a double take also. I'm scared to ride a bike these days. It might be OK on Harstine, but the traffic here and the inattention to the road would terrify me on a bike.

That's beautiful!! I don't suppose they have them on line anywhere either? We got a few sprinkles yesterday, but NOT rain at all. I still had to water. Maybe today?

Wonderful photos and I LOVE Sandra's new haircut! I know you're sad to miss it, but it will make the party even more rousing!! Congrats to both of them and to you. xoxo

And it's WAY too hot for me with no central a/c. I'm thankful for the portable unit downstairs, but my bedroom, oy vay.

You look wonderful in that color with your beautiful curls! I love the design and colors in your home; John is doing great work!

Great post and I had such a wonderful time! Once again, we shared history with each other and that was amazing. 5-4!!

Just make sure none of those critters get in the guest bedroom for my visit!LOL Living so close to nature has its pluses and minuses!

I'm with Snoskred, I love that color palette. You are so talented, T. I can't wait to get down there in late June to chat and see your latest creations. And drink beer on your deck and laugh our lips off. :)

Love your bathroom and shower. That shower head reminds me of Korea! On a smaller scale and with one pet, I completely get your hardwood angst. It's so beautiful, but impossible to keep clean with pets.

Glorious!! The weather and the setting--I can't wait to come visit. I should have some "fun" stories by then. :) I'm not looking forward to the temps being this high. I'm more of a mid 70s to low 80s person.

I need to come down there for a visit and to get some of that YUMMY food. Let's figure out a date in June, OK? I would love to catch up. It even takes a while to get places here, thanks to stupid traffic. At least your drive is peaceful and not crazy inducing. :)

Love the hair and it's a perfect length! I didn't realize curls were so complicated; they look very natural. It sounds like it's a LOT of work to keep them that way!The style makes you look amazingly young, T!I need to get addicted to some shows too. I was sad when Call The Midwife ended last Sunday, although I've been a bit disappointed in this season. John's man cave, WOW! Patt would be so jealous!! :)

Love the candle holder--beautiful colors! I'm thinking of turning my fireplace on tonight; it feels SO cold! Interstellar was an amazing movie(I watched it first in the theater with some friends) and then on the plane to Korea. I thought the problem was ME because I had to listen very carefully to hear the dialogue. On the plane, I needed to switch out headphones to my own set to understand anything.

Those are amazing sunsets--incredible! The setting sun here was enormous and orange; I couldn't figure out why! I would be terrified at facing a critter, so at least it was dead. That's a good thing, right?

I'm sure it's fake, although I wouldn't touch it! Your bedroom furniture is wonderful and looks elegant, yet homey. Need to plan a visit SOON!!

The bald eagles are beautiful, but they DO look intimidating. What a gorgeous place you live in, both inside and out!!

After your awful commute, I'm sure the car vacation was much needed! I love your glass and need to commission some soap dishes from you!

I hadn't thought of it that way but every party suite needs a boring middle aged woman eating snacks and drinking water! :-) Kimchee is spicy and one has to like cabbage and pickled things.

I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I do!

The heated seat, the many functions it does--it's wonderful!However, American bathrooms aren't wired for them, since they need to plug into an electrical outlet :(

But how exciting! The to-do list is getting shorter, your extraneous stuff is being "flung" and spring seems to already be here!

Congrats to Nate! I love Cheesecake Factory! Love how your china cabinet looks--expect a visitor some time in April. (after I recover from Korea) :)
