tuesday: my old apartment

my old apartment

So already I’ve deviated away from showing you Sydney and am showing you, I guess, my Sydney.

I adore my apartment, its old and filled with character, has creme walls with white picture rails, glass doors that lead into cute little rooms, glass knobs on , but the kicker is the wooden, white shutters over the windows.

This is the beauty of Sydney…a gorgeous old building right in the heart of the modern city.

Tuesday: like a lady

with 8 comments

Most Sunday mornings, we go to the farmers’ market in our neighborhood. There are always a lot of puppies, and the Tallboys play on the sidewalk, and as far as the eye can see is a patchwork of Polarfleece jackets and stove pipe jeans. It’s very Seattle. I love the market. But lately it’s been sort of depressing, to tell you the truth. I like kale very much, but if I see any more of it, I am going to sit down on the curb and sob. All I want is a strawberry. Brandon has taken to giving me pep talks on the way there, just so I won’t make a scene. The winter isn’t so bad here, really; it’s May and early June. That’s when Seattle and Summer play their annual game of Hide and Seek. A single round takes something like six weeks, and it’s never clear who will win. Today it is 52 degrees and raining.

Anyway. I don’t mean to be a downer. This past Sunday, we did come home with two heads of new baby lettuce and a bag of sugar snap peas, which was a great improvement. I hesitate to say that things are looking up – it is 52 degrees and raining – but I am going to have some sugar snaps for lunch, and maybe I’ll feel more confident after that. In the meantime, I had to show you this bunch of green garlic. When we get home from the market, I always take charge and put away our loot – organizing the fridge is among my cheapest pleasures – and while I was unpacking our bags this Sunday, I set the green garlic on one of the chairs at our kitchen table. I just plunked it down, la di da. But when I saw it there, it seemed so happy and relaxed, like a lady in an old movie, letting her hair down at the end of the day. I had to take a picture.

Happy Tuesday, all.

bottles, jars and cans mess

These fellows are waiting for my recycling crates to come from Camden Council. The last ones have mysteriously vanished.

tuesday: look up

with one comment

sometimes it’s easier to look down when walking, especially if one is in deep thoughts. try to drop the thoughts on the ground and look up instead, there is so much beauty up there.

fruit'n'veggies

in case you didn’t know: i’m a vegetarian. i go nuts when i’m in a store with shelfs and shelfs loaded with all kinds of fruit and vegetables. and let’s be honest: fruit and veggies are just made for polaroids.
