After a week of being sick as a dog, with an ear-ache, sinus issues and an eye cold, I am finally feeling much, much better, and am delighted!
This weekend has been quiet, although the Baltimore Marathon was in full swing, surrounding me and making it impossible to move through the city. The race brings tons of excitement, racers and revenue to the city, so I am pleased that it is here. Congratulations to all who ran. I did see lots of people limping today.
I had a chance to go to a book party for a great new book on dogs, a subject near and dear to my heart. I am waiting for my copy to write about it, but it will be great. The party was hosted at Halcyon House Antiques, and the drive out there was just beautiful. Late fall afternoons are my favourite kind of light. The guys have re-arranged Halcyon House and brought in lots of new things, including these fabulous clear acrylic ballroom chairs. I’d love one as a desk chair. I fell in love with this great rug, which, when I examined it closely, was made of chain-stitching. I even saw some actual wild animals while I was at Halcyon House. Loads of deer coming through the woods… … and geese flying overhead. My next appearance on The Nate Berkus show will be airing on October 21st. This segment is a little more serious – helping a family move from their foreclosed house. It was tough to do, but I hope that my work will help them move to the next step in their lives.
I have another fun experience, with three chicks who are as much fun as Nate was… stay tuned!
