august nights and days

You kids keep it quiet out there!

It truly feels like the end of the summer as our nights have cooled and the days are grasping at heat straws.

Somehow on Sunday we ended up entwined in a full day of working around the house. X handled the gardening (she claimed it had been three weeks since gardening happened) and scrubbing of half the house. I scrubbed the other half and spent a good bit of the day in the kitchen doing bread, pizzas for dinner, Romesco sauce, and two dozen handmade ├ęclairs for her workmates. As we were wrapping everything up we took delivery of a massive mahogany dining room table that Corey transported down from New England. (He built it years ago and brought it down to swap out with our mini 6-person table which he then took to N. Park Dr.) We were forced to call in reinforcements for the move being that apparently two dudes at 6’3” and 6’5” (“at a combined weight of nearly 500lbs!”) weren’t going to be able to move the behemoth on their own. No injuries, no damage.

I got the feeling last night that I wanted to wrap up August with a mishmash of music. Here you go.
