Digest = me + a possible glass of wine + reflection on the previous weeks ongoings and a glimpse into future happenings. You're Welcome.
Newport is in a mood this weekend after a few glorious teasing days of summer last week. It was almost like a light switch was turned on, then off and the collective sigh has resulted in a haze of coastal fog and even some thunder and lightning. I’m using this to my advantage and getting all my spring housekeeping wrapped up and getting to a lot of work I’ve been putting off.
Our Daffodil Days window is quite sweet if you’re out and about, come see these charming new pieces in the window and the darling window box of spring flowers.
I co-hosted our book club with Michael at our house. Guys, Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train, although incredibly well written, is a bit dark. Too much duplicitous scheming for me with not enough pleasant moments for me to resonate with any of the characters. We had a lovely chat about it all and in the end Michael calculated we give it a 4.2 rating out of 5.
We stopped in Charter Books yesterday and picked up Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin for our next book. The staff was so lovely and had tons of titles to recommend, perfect for a misty spring afternoon.
A few things I’m inspired by Be My Guest with Ina Garten, Atrio by Jeremiah Brent, this sweet shed of herbs I visit annually (At the herb stand on Peckham Road in Little Compton), all the details in Gilles & Boissier book, spending lazy mornings in Sleepy Jones pajamas and my Cabana Magazine subscription.
Happy weekend from our family to yours!
