Dept. of Renewals

NEW PAINT, SHELVING, A COLOSSAL CANOPY and other environmental upgrades are remaking my world (not a monumental task, small as it is). After a decade in this house, its ubiquitous flaws—gerry-rigged fixes, unresolved projects, heinous finishes—have become almost invisible; I only realize how bad it was now that it’s better. I squeegeed the windows for the first time in years; so beautiful I’m ashamed for waiting. Not quite the Agenda-Free Summer we dreamed of after the wall-to-wall weariness of 2010, but there’s more (freshly painted) room to space out and goof off, my perennial wont.

What took us so long to do bubble baths? No other type of bath will now be accepted

    In this bath photo she looks like an angel being born – didn’t that already happen?

    I love bath pics, I think because they eliminate all the clutter; all you see is ceramic and flesh (and no hair in the face, either).
