Mima playing the piano!

video

I found this video from Thanksgiving 2006 (possibly from 2005?). Watch for Mima's smile when she rolls off the last note of the song! Isn't this a wonderful memory that practically all of us have - of Mima playing the piano?

How it's looking so far...

Make-shift pantry!

Width = Enough space for 1 Andrew + 1 Ellan.

The Spoon Thing! When Andrew found this in a pile of purchases,
wondering why we had a massive spoon with seemingly no function, 
I declared, "it's for hanging stuff!"

A rainy day across the street from our window

View of street from living room window -
yup, that's the fire escape, circa 1920.  Andrew says, "if there's
a fire, please don't use that."

Grand Hallway

Uncle Tom gave us this table, and Andrew
refinished it as my wedding gift. He literally
worked on it for months - doesn't it just shine and gleam?!

Lincoln Park


This is Lincoln Park, a few blocks from where we live. East, to the left of this picture, is North Avenue Beach. Andrew and I have walked down to the park several times - great for jogging and people watching. I walked through the park the other day, watching people and eating Twizzlers.

Twizzlers are the perfect walking food...perfect park food, too. Chewy, delicious, accessible.
