one summer BBQ

Posted by on Aug 27, 2007 in my sons are smarter than me | No Comments

Damiano had a chance to meet other kids and well… doesn’t he look thrilled? Those pork chops were amazing. The recipe was closed source (despite the fact the BBQ was offered by free software supporters), but I’m reverse engineering it. My Brazilian friend Joao is going to figure out what made them so delicious. (I’ll […]

It’s summer. (and yes, I’m sick…) I have plenty of time in my hands, while Damiano sleeps… spent almost entirely daydreaming about our house. And of course traveling through the internets in search of inspiration. Here’s my inspiration board for the hallway. Yellow – yolk – orange – zabaione. Mirroirs sorcieres, a chinese table for […]

Can’t stop playing this song.

Is it possible to have a fever in August? I don’t know how I caught a damn flu, and even if my head is about to burst, my throat is in flames and I’m sad because I can’t kiss my baby… I can’t stop playing this cover of a song I’ve actually never heard. I […]

We began a few days ago with solids. The very first thing Damiano ate was avocado, and after a couple weeks pause I started with vegetables and chicken. Don’t be deceived by his smiles: he still doesn’t like the idea of eating from the spoon. He’d rather eat THE SPOON. As soon as he starts […]

I love owls. My grandfather used to say that owls are a symbol of intelligence. I guess I find that appealing. Maybe I just love me some Samborn’s enchiladas. 0_o

Dammit. Found this photo of a pink velvet and silver chair while perusing one of my favoritest blogs for interiors, Desire to Inspire and it left me wondering… Why does my eBay bench look so bad and this other one looks so great? Is is the shape? is it the hue of pink? the shine […]
