I am very happy with the shades of coffee and cream here, and that is pretty much the palette inside the house as well. We have some furniture that we can’t replace just yet, i.e. the red sectional sofa, so I am making covers for the accent pillows, just to lighten things up and cool it down until then.
I love that ginkgo leaf fabric, I could easily reupholster the whole sofa in that…
I decided to retitle my blog. The title Rian’s Pages came from a group-thing I did ten-plus years ago with a bunch of artists where we worked through The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, a book designed to help you unleash your creativity by doing a daily exercise called “Morning Pages.” I’m not sure how well it worked, my creativity comes and goes. Recently I was talking to an old friend about the 50s TV show Adventures in Paradise and it sounded apropos.
JJ and I are dieting again, we want to whittle off another ten pounds, or whatever we can manage to lose, in the next month. We have pretty much cleared our calendar of social events that involve drinking and eating, and we have stocked up on Pellegrino. Keeping busy and active is key. And being vigilant and diligent, so diet is a major focus right now.
We eat fresh and organic anyway, we rarely eat processed food beyond maybe marinara sauce or mayonnaise, but we drink a fair amount of wine, which spikes your blood sugar and gets stored as energy (fat). Probably not a bad idea to give the ol’ liver a rest as well.
Time to go hike up the hill.
