Crocuses are out.  Now we just need to top 60 one day and see something green on a tree.

Charity already posted an album on Facebook but I thought I’d post a few of my own here.  It was great fun and very beautiful.  We had power, heat, food, and sleds, which is about all anyone could ask for in such a storm.  It was lovely.  It’s less lovely now as the remnants are piled everywhere narrowing the streets but was still lovely.  I haven’t seen that much snow at once in over 20 years.  It really was fun.

DPP Day 11: The School Next Door

Every day I walk past a great design school.  This morning I dropped a casserole dish off with a friend and walked past this on the way to his office.

NYTimes Meets RI House Hunting

with one comment

Over the last few weekend Charity and I have been going to open houses to learn a bit about the local real estate market.  Much to my delight one of the houses we walked through was featured in the NYTimes yesterday.

For years I’ve perused the “What you get for $___,000” series looking for interesting architectural features for my dream home scrapbook.  It’s fun to be able to have actual seen one in person.  I liked it that they featured the best feature of the house: the hand made backsplash for the stove (pictured right).

Joining the Yacht Club

leave a comment »

Now that I live in the northeast and am a professor I thought I’d round out the picture and feel really snooty by joining a yacht club.  Of course my version of a yacht club is a non-profit, community sailing center, but I still think I’ll tell Charity that “I’m headed to the club.”

This afternoon I finally made it down with Dad and successfully checked out on a Hunter 140 (pictured above).  I’ve been sailing on a number of occasions but never in a boat this small. I’m now certified to take them out.  Though it turns out they’re a lot tipsier than the big ones.   We only heeled over far enough to take on water once… Glad not to flip it on the first day!!

Providence in the Evening

with one comment

Last weekend we walked around town a bit for an all-you-can-eat icecream event and the Waterfire street festival by the river.  We really do live in a lovely place… at least in the summer time.  We’ll see for the winter!
