Redo/redone (elsewhere)


Two years ago this day we visited a friend who was in the process of making some alterations to his “new” house before the family arrived. I’m embarrassed to report that I have yet to revisit and see how things turned out!

Reminder to self: this is what it looks like when you plan to remodel rather than do a forced remodel!

Oh, and, have I mentioned how very glad I am that our kitchen survived the tree-fall?

Olympic fakery

Apparently those memorable footprint fireworks we saw as part of NBC’s coverage of the Opening Ceremonies were fake. There were fireworks, but we were seeing a computer-generated fantasy. I had it wrong.

UPDATE: cute little girl singing was miming; less-cute not-quite-so-little girl was singing in the wings.
