long overdue house updates. Part II.

Posted by on Sep 30, 2008 in I wanted to be an architect, images | 4 Comments

The couch bears the signs of my procrastinating ways. I completed the first of seven covers I plan to make, because an off white sofa and children don’t go together well. The brown fabric is a very nice cotton mix that actually feels better on the skin than the original polyester of the couch. This […]

The Studio – Guestroom. This is the old bookcase I had in my apartment in Milan. One day maybe I’ll decide I’m glamorous enough to spend a whole afternoon organizing the uncountable books by color. Or maybe not. Right now they’re mostly in random order, except those that made it together after the move. In […]

some random things

Yesterday my mother-in-law and I finally cleaned up the basement. I got rid of craploads of stuff and made room for my printing devices. I’ve finally started experimenting with my Adana letterpress. I will need to find many solutions to the lack of furniture and spacing, but my goal is to  produce a decent holiday […]

I’m sorry I’ve not been posting more lately, I just noticed it’s been a while since I put on some recent photos of Damiano. I will mend for that this week I promise. I wanted to share -as a proof of my uncorrupted youth – that this morning for the first time in my life […]

Today was one of those days in which I wonder if I should get back to my medication because my borderline condition promptly reminded me that it is here to stay, no matter how good I do. It’s all about pressure. Air pressure, too. High pressure like today kills me. And it is silly because […]

I just have had better things to do

Posted by on Sep 13, 2008 in my sons are smarter than me | No Comments

than posting silly things on my blog. Like sleeping on the couch every time I can. Or trying to find things that will make the horrible nausea go away. I barely have energy to keep phony commenters away. No really. I’ve been feeling like crap so badly, that even when I feel ok I still […]

Just one question.

Why is it called “morning sickness”, instead of “fucking all day long sickness”?

Freezer treasures

Now that I’m in my first weeks of pregnancy, more than ever I appreciate having a well stocked freezer. Morning sickness hasn’t been too severe but it’s been there, and I’m also constantly exhausted. Here’s my list of must-haves for days like today, when I can’t bother cooking, that freeze well and are loved by […]
