this week

took a week to get out of nyc and dip my toes in the cold cape cod water.  never have i been more grateful for this luxuries of salt water, sand, puppies, and reading in a hammock.  when the world is on fire, it makes you think hard about your priorities and how you are going to do more, and to do better, to make this a place future generations want to be.

chickpea stew

i finally made alison roman’s chickpea stew this weekend, and it was just as promised – easy, inexpensive, and delicious.  i made a few changes to the receipe:  spinach instead of kale, 1 cup of coconut milk instead of 2; and parsley instead of cilantro because that’s all i had.  a little squeeze of lime to top it off.  perfect for a cold winter’s night.

our shared closet

i used my time in isolation to clean out and organize my portion of our shared closet.  i believe in marie kondo’s advice that you should never clean your family’s possessions for them – it is too fraught with emotion and would lead to a fight.

as part of our renovations, we used the container store’s elfa system.  custom closets were too expensive and didn’t seem worth the cost.

i still haven’t switched out my seasonal clothes, but that is coming soon.  it makes me so happy to open the door.
