since i barely leave the house these days, i thought i would take advantage of the parachute sale to buy some new linens for our bedroom. the cloud cotton quilt and matching shams are so amazingly soft, and i love the rumpled white linen for summer. i still decided to stick to the gray and white scheme, but the darker gray on the inside of the quilt adds a nice contrast. i also like folding the duvet at the base of the bed, since it gives a neater overall appearance.
i decided now would be as good a time as any to reread the harry potter books, something i haven’t done since i was a kid. i also read the goldfinch for the first time and loved it.
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.
my favorite by far was the people in the trees. one of the first books in a long time that awed me, and i was truly sad when it was over.
i’m flying through books during this self isolation. here are the next five i finished. i sent long bright river off to a friend with two small kids – i thought she could use an escape.
i absolutely loved the patron saint of liars.
