The Ultimate Log Home Playlist, Part 1

Some of our favorite evenings have included opening a bottle of wine, throwing some steaks on the grill, and listening to a little music on our deck while watching the sun go down. That got us thinking: what is the ultimate log home play list? Is it songs about nature? Freedom from modern life’s hectic pace? Or is it simply music that celebrates the comfort of a loving…

Small places

Every day, it seems, there is more to see in the cabin. Mike has been helping with painting and other things, while Mr. Seals works on framing the windows and doors and on finishing, bringing definition to each small space. He has a base coat of clay on the walls. They are white now, so we have to squint to see their future color.

The zombies walked

I told Linda, who has worked for years in the office of our insurance agent, that sometimes it seems like we are handing out our credit card like it is Halloween candy to pay for the renovations.

Young hearts of gold

Neil Young was in Richmond this weekend for a show. He was spotted at Plan 9 in Carytown pawing through the vinyl bins.

Final Floor

The VCU Rams had a great run up to the Final Four, but just couldn't overcome the size of the Butler Bulldogs. All of Richmond stopped to watch the game, and our disappointment in the score is only exceeded by our pride in the team. Both teams were beasts on the floor, playing with all their heart. I think there will…

Art in windows, music in bamboo

Music and art are keeping my thoughts elevated this weekend. Maybe I was inspired when I looked up to see the hawk perched high in a tree at the cabin Thursday morning. No matter. The theme developed on Friday when Darien and I attended the opening of a major Picasso…
