(5) Things we love…#152

Posted in Food & Entertaining, and Things We Love

Next week we will let go of Summer time, our days will become shorter, and apples and oranges will fill our fruit bowls for months to come. I look forward to all of it (probably because sub-zero temperatures and snow blizzards are not in the cards where I live). For now, I will enjoy the last truly hot weekend of the year. Have a great one, wherever you are, whatever the weather.

Itchy hands and creative juices

My Belgian friend Sylvia, a do it yourself whiz, interior decorator and even plumber extraordinaire, turned me on to Houzz about a year ago. “It’s fabuluuus – the only probleme is I keep on bookmarking things” she enthused.

Unbeknownst to me, sofagirl also signed up for Houzz’s weekly updates and, when I mentioned it to her, she was already a veteran.

Still chasing the dream

Posted in Aging, and Life & Love

Two chairsA few days ago I went to see my former boss at the last record company I worked for,  a catch-up chat of sorts, and I found out he had embarked on a joint venture that involved running his own label, but also the responsibly of delivering hits if food were to appear on his table. A long time friend, a successful photographer and soap opera director, started a radio project for teenagers, as a lark, and now wants to devote his time entirely to it, thinking an income will follow. A suddenly single girlfriend went the route of volunteering and will be leaving the country before the end of the year. Another girlfriend  is starting a candy business in Antigua. And then there is the diplomat wife who, after a life spent moving around the world, has started a catering business. All these are friends my age or slightly older.
