We spent the last week transforming the front bedroom of the house – which had disintegrated into a cluttered, chaotic “catch all” – into a guest room. My handy spouse repaired the stained glass windows, which were in desperate need of new latches and new seals, took apart the built-in bookcase and reconfigured it to […]
For Americans who grew up during a particular era, a gracious front porch is a symbol of many warm memories. The front porch sheltered us from rain and sun and gave us a place to relax, imagine, and dream; it offered a sense of community and coziness, all in one.
The Cat and the Computer As an astrologer and website designer, I spend the majority of my days in the technology-rich realm of Aquarius, gazing at a computer screen.
